Route: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/17707700 37.2 miles, 740' elevation change. First leg: Gibbons Church, Brandywine Rd, Horeshead/Mt Pleasant, Woodville, and Gallant Green to a rest stop at the Sunoco on old Rt 5. Second leg: Burnt Store, Olivers Shop, Bryantown, and Woodville to another rest stop at Moreland Market. Final leg: Woodville, Iowa, Covington, and basically Brandywine Rd back to N. Keys park. This route is flat - the only "climb" of note is an incline on Bryantown Rd.
Weather: sun appeared as we gathered at N. Keys park and remained with us for the ride, temps increasing from the mid 60s to the high 70s, and a pesky wind out of the southern quadrant.
AMS: swept at 13 mph
Report: The CC edition of today's BoB ride was a piggyback on a route Tom Short had chosen with the hopes of attaining best AMS of 2019. Our group eschewed speed and rode at a more civilized pace, with the exception of Jay, who emboldened by Tom's rhetoric, rode with the B's. The four of us pretty much rode together, meeting up with a slower B contingent at both rest stops. After Moreland Market, there was a bit more separation, as traffic was very light on Iowa, Covington, Cedarville, and Ashbox, and Pat and your faithful correspondent fell into a conversational cycling mode. True CC riding at its best.
