6/11 Southern Exposure: Goose Bay>Pisgah 35 mi. CC Touring (& friends)

Tue, June 11, 2019 10:00 AM | Ron Altemus (Administrator)

Leader:   Ron Altemus

Members:   Larry Peed, Tom Short, James Rauch, Pat Walters, Alan Kurzweil, Patricia Sanders, Joan Oppel, Jim Hudnall, Donaro Garnder, Blythe Herrold

Route:   https://ridewithgps.com/routes/27781147  35.2 miles, 1,117' elevation gain.  Pomfret, Marshall Corner, Valley, MD-6, and Blossom Point to a rest stop at everyone's favorite, Goose Bay. Onwards via Mill Swamp, MD-6, Fire Tower, Annapolis Woods, and Poorhouse to Pisgah. Final leg using Mason Spring and Livingston.

Weather:   another terrific Tuesday!  Sunshine and cloudless blue skies, temps in the 70s, and low humidity, all courtesy of NW breezes that were noticeable on our return routing.

AMS:   swept in the mid 12s.  Most of the friends were much faster.

Mechanicals/Mishaps:   Larry's tail light bounced off his bike on Mill Swamp but the sweeper swept it up so he won't need to buy a new one.

Report:   with such a mixture of B and true CC touring riders, we were broken up into smaller groups very quickly.  Most of us came together at Goose Bay before once again breaking into groups.  A larger CC contingent rode back together until most of the group decided to tour the Stuckeys (Lane & Road).  Your faithful correspondent continued on the original route just in case and encountered a few riders at Pisgah.  From there, we rode back together.   All in all, another great day for bicycling on some very nice Charles County roads.
