Members: Karen McMillan, Luis D'Allarso, Barbara Haney, Ritz Zeidner, Harold Datz

Route: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/30790926  Start at Pisgah Park to Liverpool rest stop via Riverside Rd, then MD-6 via Chicamuxen to Start

Weather:   Great weather, blue skies and comfortable temperature with little to no wind.

AMS: 15.4 overall but intensity varied throughout the route.

Report: We were in search of scenic views which we found.  We first discovered the elusive Texas Longhorns at Baptist Church Road and Bowie Road.  They were as interested in us as we were of them and we all stared at each other for a long time then we were off. Another scenic view was the 10 mile section of Riverside Road  with its brilliant trees providing nice shade.  Our rest stop was at the Nanjemoy Country Store.  The clerk was very friendly.  Although there is a sign on the front door saying there is no public restroom she said the sign does not apply to paying customers.  She suggested we sit out of the sun in the bar section (which was not open) which we did.  The Nanjemoy store is a nice stop and has an amenable clerk.  Until this point (mile 25) we had been riding a very relaxed B pace but after a long rest stop we all decided to skip the planned visit to Mallows Park and just ride directly back to Pisgah Park at an intense B pace.
