4/23 Southern Exposure: Welcome>Smallwood Church 37 mi. CC & Friends

Tue, April 23, 2019 10:00 AM | Ron Altemus (Administrator)

Leader:  Ron Altemus

Members:  Harry Kidd, Jackie & Randy Schoch, James Rauch, La' Tasha Banks, Alan Kurzweil, Steve Forman, Pat Walthers, Tom Short, Larry Peed, Karen McMillan, Tom Roberts, Sam Perry

Route:  https://ridewithgps.com/routes/28874627  Livingston, Hawthorne (w/ascent of might Mount Pisgah), Ripley/Annapolis Woods, and Fire Tower to a rest stop at Scott's.  Onward via MD-6, Durham Church, Ironsides/Mason Spring, Smallwood Church, Sweetwater and Bicknell to a second rest stop at Pisgah Store.  Final leg on Mason Springs, Hawthorne, IHRT, Lower Wharf, Chapman's Landing, etc., back to the start.

Weather:  another glorious day!  Brilliant sunshine with deep blue skies and a small amount of air moving out of the southern quadrant.  Temps started in the low 70s and rose to the low 80s by rides end sans humidity.

AMS:  swept at 12.6.  As the parking lot was empty except for the final group, the assumption is everyone else's mph was a tad higher.

Mechanicals/Mishaps:  none known.

Report:  Another very nice ride, hopefully for all concerned.  Quite a few friends riding with the normal CC contingent, but we did all meet up at Scott's.  Not much traffic - as always, Fire Tower was notable as nary a car was encountered traversing it in either direction.
