Avg: 13.8 at the end for me, others faster.
Members: Jim and Jane Hudnall, Steve Forman, Dana Trevas, James Rauch, Harry Kidd, Ron Altemus, Karl Craton.
Report: Good plan to start at 11 which allowed for the roads to dry and sun to be present. We had a well matched group with riders ranging throughout the CC class. I started out listening to Queen; Bohemian Rhapsody, Bicycle Race and Don’t stop Me Now among others, seemed appropriate.
We spread out a bit, but kept in sight during the ride until Pisgah. We had a long stop at Ollie’s, so I kept the Pisgah stop shorter. After Randy’s group joined us, we took some pictures then some of the CC left to continue. Jim, Jane and Harry remained for more pictures and conversations, but caught up with myself and Dana on the trail.
It was James first ride with the club and when asked, he declared it was good and the scenery pleasant.
On the trail during the beginning, I spotted what looked like an otter swimming between Bumpy Oak and Livingston Road, fun to see. Keep your eyes out for our wildlife friends.
