Leader: Ron Altemus
Members: Patricia Sanders
Route: outbound via Chapman's Landing, Glymont, Woodland, IHRT, Hawthorne, Chicamuxen, Riverside, and Liverpool Point to a rest stop at the newly reopened Nanjemoy store. The CC contingent varied the return, using Beaverdam to MD-6, then Poseytown and Bowie over to Mason Springs for a second stop at Pisgah store. Bicknell, Marbury Run, Chicamuxen, and Livingston delivered us to our ride start location. Approx. 1.5 miles less than the full BR 44 route.
Weather: lots of sunshine giving way to some clouds as the day progressed, temps rising from the mid 70s to close to 90, humidity/dew point in the "unpleasant" range, with little in the way of wind.
AMS: a comfortable 13.5
Mechanicals/Mishaps: none (if one doesn't include the sweat in the eyes of the ride leader for the final 4 miles)
Report: the other classes were well represented and we met up with them at the two rest stops, riding at times interspersed before they pulled away. Lots of Causal Conversational Cycling as Patricia and your faithful correspondent rode together for the entire route.
