Ride Report:

Jean, Bruce, and Ken weren’t really on the AA ride; they were doing the A/B ride but signed in with me since Ken was late due to a flat tire. 

We lost one rider on Springhill Newtown Road.  The remaining pack stayed together until the hill on Budd’s Creek Road where we lost another rider.  We had the wind at our backs on Route 301, which felt good.

The close call occurred on St. Mary’s Avenue when an oncoming car inexplicably made a left turn in front of the pack.  What are people thinking?  Fortunately, we were able to avoid the car and continue without incident. 

It was another good ride.
