Route: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/16355330 30.2 mi, 794' elevation gain. Outbound down Bumpy Oak and then the IHRT to White Plains and a rest stop at the IHRT trail head. Continue via Marshall Corner to Hawthorne, descend mighty Mt Pisgah, traverse Lower Wharf and Chapman's Landing back to the start.
Weather: plenty of sunshine, temps starting in the upper 70s and maybe reaching 90, SW breezes that felt refreshing, and the ever present summer humidity.
AMS: swept in the low 12s, most were faster, a couple slower
Mechanicals/Mishaps: none known or reported
Report: billed as a shorter and flatter SE, a nice size group showed up. Three of us (Steve, Pat, your faithful correspondent) rode considerably slower than the others and when we reached White Plains, the fast group was leaving. Jay stayed back and rode with the ride leader while Steve and Pat took an alternate route, going down to the IHRT at Bensville in search of more shade. The latter two finished a bit later but said they had an enjoyable ride. I hope everyone else did, too.
