8/8 Best of Brandywine: St Peters Church, Mt Pleasant & Gallant Green

Thu, August 08, 2019 9:30 AM | Stephen Palincsar (Administrator)

Ride leader: Steve Palincsar

Members: Sonja Newman, Ken Meredith, Larry Peed, Jay Lewis, Alan Kurzweil, Sue Henn, Ron Altemus, Lisha Peacock, Sarah Clement, Karen Morgan, Loretta Troen and (present but unaccounted for) Lou Dallorso

Route: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/30725852  32 mi, 800' of elevation (and created fresh for the occasion, not "canned") with a 25 mi option that skipped the Young/Truman Manor/Gallant Green loop

Weather: sunny, reasonable humidity, temperatures in the 70s at the start and the high 80s by the time we were done.

Mishaps & mechanicals: none

AMS: 12.0 at the end

With riders ranging from A to C, it's unsurprising that we broke up into faster and slower groups as soon as we got going.  We were all together at the Moreland Market, and several riders who had been entertaining thoughts of taking the short option decided to go all the way.  Some were unfamiliar with the Young/Truman Manor development and were pleasantly surprised.  Special thanks to all those who held back to stay with me.
