Route: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/29986393 38.2 miles; 1,073 elevation gain. Livingston, Hawthorne, Marshall Corner, and Bensville to a rest stop at Bensville Park. Onward using Berry, Bealle Hill, Accokeek, Danville, Floral Park, Livingston, Farmington, and Chatsworth to a second rest stop in downtown Accokeek at the library. As a finale, the top half of the Tour de Accokeek back to the start.
Weather: with a temp range of mid 60s to low 70s, it was a sunny and cool, crisp day. Occasional winds gusts out of the NW in the mid teens kept things interesting.
AMS: swept at 12.7. Since the parking lot was almost empty upon return, others must have been a wee bit faster.
Mechanicals/Mishaps: none known or reported.
Report: a large turnout, most of whom were CC "friends," and after the sweeping contingent got caught at the 210 light, never seen again. Joan, Pat, Sarah, and your faithful correspondent rode the route together and had a most delightful time. Hopefully everyone else enjoyed today's ride, too.
