To meet the Friday Indian Head Rail Trail group we travel by descending Barry's Hill which still has quite a bit of standing water as well as water flowing across the street.  Nothing we couldn't ride through.  The first climb was Marshall Hall Rd, followed by mostly flat then downhill to the Livingston Rd parking lot.  We met up with the IHRT group and continued to the White Plains end of the trail.  During this part of the ride we get to ride a more leisurely  pace and talk with other  club members.  The wind picked up and we had to work through the headwind.  Donaro joined us for part of our ride back to the start from Livingston Rd.  We climbed Hawthorne, crossed 210, and from there onto Chapman's Landing Rd.  Donaro headed back to his start location while we continued onto Marshall Hall Rd then climbed Barry's Hill before returning to the firehouse on mostly flat roads.  No mishaps.  Ride leader'a ams was 12.9.
