Southern Exposure CC

Tue, July 02, 2019 2:15 PM | Joan Oppel (Administrator)

Ride Name: Southern Exposure CC

Leader:  Joan Oppel

Members:  Jim Hudnall, Harry Kidd, Jackie Schoch, Randy Schoch

Route:  Chosen by Barbara, Livingston to Hawthorne, 6 miles on Hawthorne to Rose Hill, Rt 6 to La Plata, wind around to Locust Grove & Chapel Point, return on Valley/Hawthorne - wait, the CCs deviated here and took Bumpy Oak back (the official return route used Pomfret). Turns out the distance is exactly the same. The reason for the change is the badly degraded, non-usable shoulder on Pomfret as riders climb its 1/4 mile hill, while drivers have poor sight lines. 

Weather:  Hot - 80s, upper 80s, humid..

Distance:  33.7

Mechanicals/Mishaps:  None in the CC group.

Report: The ride was uneventful for us, there were baby osprey chicks in the exposed nest on Route 6 near the intersection with Chapel Point. We all returned within a few minutes of each other.
