Report:  It was great to have eight riders enjoy the low-traffic, shady roads that make up part of the Indian Head 100 route. The group rode together and  split and then regrouped at intersections and rest stops. Mallows Bay was spectacular as we watched kayakers and canoes explore the Potomac and talked with a Charles County ranger about the future of the area. Alan and Norm added 11 extra miles by turning on MD-6 and returning on Poorhouse.
