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
