7/25 Best of Brandywine C - Merkle & Tanyard

Thu, July 25, 2019 9:30 AM | Stephen Palincsar (Administrator)

Ride leader: Steve Palincsar

Members: Patricia Sanders, Sarah Clement, Randy Schoch, Alan Kurzweil (who rode with us for the first 20 miles, then led an impromptu group on a long, long return) Jay Lewis, Ron Altemus and Pat Walthers.  (There were also a number of other riders who came to ride with Joan, whose route stayed with ours for the first 20 miles, then took a longer return.)  In all, a wonderful group of friends, some of whom I hadn't seen for quite some time (this being my first ride with Oxon Hill since the CABG in May).

Route: 26 miles, just over 1,000' elevation gain: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/30620997. 

Weather: sunny, low humidity, gentle breezes, in the 70s at the start rising to the high 80s at the end: it just doesn't get any better than this in the summer in the DMV.  Between the lovely weather and the ample shade along the route, a thoroughly delightful day.

Mishaps & mechanicals: none I'm aware of

AMS: 11.0
