Report: The CC 43 ride went off smoothly.  The group stayed together most of the way to the rest stop.  We enjoyed a bit of cooler weather before the heat built during the day.  I saw some egret and vultures during the day, and enjoyed the views of the water leading to the stop. 

After the rest stop I left after the group so I rode with the second to last rider for the rest of the day while the group was ahead.  The cooler than average day and the slightly relaxed pace made the stretch from Marlboro Landing and along Huntingtown Road more enjoyable than many years, although it's always challenging.  The rest of the route was just enjoyable without qualifiers :-) .

I'm glad I added this ride as the large turnout indicated a demand for it.  It was great to see everyone including on the other rides, especially Steve as he works his way back to his usual riding.
