Leader: Joan Oppel
Members: Ron Altemus, David Mann, Karen McMillan, Patricia Sanders, Tom Short, Jan Tucker
Guest: Barbara Wilson
Route: Down Bumpy Oak, Hawthorne to Ripley (shade!), Poorhouse to Rt 6. Relax, eat, chat on the porch at Goose Bay. Return via Mill Swamp, Annapolis Woods, Poorhouse, Pisgah Marbury, Chicamuxen and Livingston
Weather: In the 80's with low wind and some humidity but not extreme
Mechanicals/Mishaps: Minor mishaps: Patricia's rearview mirror fell out of her handlebar, Ron picked it up and no harm done. Karen lost a water bottle on Bumpy Oak but retrieved it (it survived a school bus passing right over - but not on - it. Barbara had a new bike with only one bottle cage installed on the seat tube, with not enough room for an actual water bottle. Ride leader changed the cage to the down tube at the rest stop so she could reach a water bottle while riding.
Report: Lovely ride, more shade than not. Ride leader rode near the back so hopes that the 7 riders she missed seeing back at the parking lot had a good ride.
