7/2- Southern Exposure: La Plata Loops - A 34 miles

Tue, July 02, 2019 9:00 AM | Barbara Haney

Leader: Barbara Haney

Members: Ron Haney, Pete Czapiewski, Barb Haley, Tom Roberts 

Route: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/17686251La Plata Loops, which may have to be revised someday to bypass some pavement unpleasantness on Pomfret. 

Weather: It got pretty hot and humid by the end, into the 80s, not as bad as recent days though. Light winds that actually gave us some tailwind for once. 

AMS: 17.9 for leader

Mechanicals/Mishaps: one flat tire 

Report: It wasn’t the most cohesive of rides today; people surged and / or dropped back for various reasons, so we didn’t enjoy the same steady teamwork throughout as in recent Tuesday A rides, but it was an enjoyable ride nonetheless. LaTasha and Lou rode with us for portions of the ride, even though neither was officially signed in with A’s. At one point we came upon several deer that seemed ready to cross the road right in front of us, but we slowed in time to avoid disaster. It was great to have B and CC leaders join in (thanks Joan and Tom S!), as we ended up with a nice big group.
