12/2 Indian Head Rail Trail - 26 miles

Sun, December 02, 2018 1:00 PM | Jim Hudnall (Administrator)

Leaders: Jim and Jane Hudnall

Members:  Ron and Susan Altemus, Blake Altman, Bruce and Gail Black, Deborah Bowman, Michael and Yvonne Dong, and Fran Jezirek. Sherwood Byers and Linda Bankerd, who  were on a ride from the Manokeek Shopping Center, met us at White plains and rode back with us as far as Bumpy Oak Road. Blake had ridden from home and turned toward home at Bumpy Oak Road after the return from White Plains.

Route: 26 miles on the Indian Head Rail Trail from Indian Head to White Plains and back

Weather:  Not the warm and dry sixties the forecast from earlier in the week had us expecting, but chilly and damp fifties, with a heavy mist the last few miles. We had a brief glimpse of blue sky, long enough for a group photo at the start of the trail.

Report: When asked after the ride to describe it in one word, most said "wet" and than added "but we are glad we came." The ride was to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the ribbon cutting to open the first section of the trail.
