Weather:  Perfect for the beginning of July.  Sunshine, Blue skies, low humidity, and no wind.

AMS:  Ride leader had 15.4 AMS.

Distance:  39 miles due to deviation to route due to closure of Livingston and MD 224S/MD225E due to Monday heavy rains and flooding.

Report:  This ride report will be on the short side.  The 7 of us were kind of spread out but within sight until the rest stop at Smallwood State Park/Sweden Point Marina.  The second half of the ride we rode together.  Even with the 2 climbs up Rose Hill and Bumpy Oak.  At the top of each climb we took time to regroup, check on each other, and then continue.  However prior to ride start and group picture Jim Hudnall broke the devastating news of the passing of Ron Haney.  Barbara....Our hearts, prayers, and condolences go out to you and your family.  If there is anything that you need at this time please do not hesitate to ask.
