Guests: Irvin Green
Route: Manokeek Espresso, 36 miles
Weather: Starting in the mid 70's going up to mid 80's
AMS: 13.8 for the ride leader, higher for the rest of the group
Report: The 8:00 ride start was perfect because it got us back before the heat of the day. We started as a group but the climb up Berry Rd quickly separated us into the B group and the not-so-B group. I like this route because it has us mostly on roads with wide shoulders and little traffic. The 2 groups met at the first rest stop, refueled, then continued on, bypassing the optional second rest stop because we only had 20 more miles to the end. Jay opted to cut the ride short and apparently made it back to the parking lot as his car was gone by the time we got back. The ride was completed before 11:00 allowing us plenty of time to enjoy the rest of the day.
