Tue, December 04, 2018 10:00 AM | Ron Altemus (Administrator)

Leader:  Ron Altemus

Members:  Holly Carr, Jay Lewis, Mike Saizan, Barb Haney, Jim Hudnall, Steve Palincsar, La' Tasha Banks, Sam Perry, Joan Oppel, Donaro Gardner (riding from home)

Route:   https://ridewithgps.com/routes/26630223  36 miles, 1332' elevation change.  Outbound  via Bumpy Oak, Rose Hill, and Chapel Point to St Ignatius.  Onward using Fairgrounds and St Mary's to the MD-6  Dash-In.  Final return traversing Quailwood, Hawthorne, and Livingston.

Weather:   cloudy/overcast, temps dropping from the low 40s to high 30s, cold 10 mph winds out of the NW.

AMS:   ride leader swept at 11.6; Friends were unquestionably faster.

Mechanicals/Mishaps:  none known

Report:  a decent turnout - guess there are a few club members looking to pick up miles to reach a yearly goal.  The "friends" were quickly out of sight on Livingston prior to Bumpy Oak so your faithful correspondent can only describe the traditional CC contingent's adventures, of which there was nothing worth mentioning.  We rode, we talked, and we did see the friends as they were leaving St. Ignatius.  The facilities have been redone quite nicely at St. Ignatius and the ice machine is still putting out ice.  Jim waited for us at the Dash-In and rode with us back to the start.  for some reason, it seemed to be more traffic than normal on Livingston .
