A Class Southern Exposure: BR 39 Bowie Rd > Riverside Rd

Tue, June 04, 2019 10:00 AM | Pete Czapiewski

Leader: Pete Czapiewski

Members:  Barb Haney, Kirk Saunders, Elizabeth Niles, Barb Haley, Michael Dong, Tom Roberts, Cynthia Anderson

From Bryan's Road, outbound via Livingston, Mason Springs, Bowie, and Poseytown to rest stop at Nanjemoy Community Center. Continuing via Beaver Dam/Liverpool to Riverside. Return via Chicamuxen, Hawthorne, and MD-210. 38.6 miles; 1,288 elevation gain. https://ridewithgps.com/routes/18291882 

Weather:  Mid 60's to low 70's, sunny, and low winds.

AMS:  18.4 mph.


Our group worked well together in a steady paceline, and seven of us finished together.  Michael announced early that he was going to ride intervals and rode away to solo after the climb on Mason Springs.  No one was dropped or suffered, despite veering into the AA range of speed. Tom and our road captain Barb even did some extra miles before and after. The weather was ideal for this ride, as was the course, especially along Riverside Road.

Thanks to Ron for the route, and to everyone who came out. Also, happy birthday to new member Elizabeth!

    Great warming up with the group. I rode down to Holly Springs, and figured everyone would catch me by Chicamuxen (followed the line painting truck for a while, then passed it). Got back to Safeway with cars still there. Breeze kept you honest today!
