Sun, July 07, 2019 9:00 AM | Jane Hudnall (Administrator)

Leaders: Jim and Jane Hudnall

Members: Ronald Tucker, Janis Tucker, Dan Wells, Janell Saunders, Julia LaCava, Harold Datz, Walt Roscello

Route: From the Fire Station down Accokeek Road to Bryans Road, cross MD-210, Livingston to MD-225, Ripley, Poorhouse to a rest stop at the Pisgah Store. Return on Mason Springs, Chicamuxen, MD-225, Lower Wharf, Chapman's Landing, Marshall Hall Road, Barrys Hill, Accokeek Road back to the Fire Station. 

Weather: Overcast, near 80 degrees at the start with some sun and temperatures rising to 87. Hot and humid but not as bad as it has been.

AMS: 13.2 mph at the rear.

Mechanicals/Mishaps: None

Report:  This ride is always fun because riders from all classes meet at the fire station, at the rest stop and at the Accokeek Neighborhood Park for watermelon at the finish. The ride honors Bob McMaster who started this tradition and Calvin Conyers who was at many of these events. The CC riders spread out on the route but regrouped at the rest stop. Dan had his recumbent trike - fast down hill but slow up hill. He and Jane took a 2-mile shortcut and avoided a hill on the way back. Welcome Julia LaCava on her first club ride. Jackie Schoch, Michael and Azalia Butler had cold, sweet watermelon waiting for us when we returned to the park.
