Report:  Excellent weather for this time of year.  It is almost July so it should be expected to be anywhere from warm to hot.  Excellent turn-out for a posting on Wednesday for a Thursday Best of Brandywine ride.  As you can tell from the AMS postings we were fairly close together for the entire ride.  When separation did occur, when we arrived at the 2 rest stops only a couple of minutes passed between first and last rider being accounted for.  The differences in total miles came about due to B ride leader's concern about the Covington Road portion of route.  It has always been a concern of mine when turning left onto MD-381 from Covington.  Some did this portion, most did not.  Also some riders elected once on Brandywine Road to skip the Baden Westwood Road portion and/or the Cedarville Road to Ashbox Road portion.  Big thanks to Harry Kidd for volunteering to lead the CC members and for Mike Saizan for being the "Ultimate Sweeper" on all club rides.  Also thanks to OHBTC members who attended the ride today.  Indeed!
