8/27 A Class Southern Exposure: Nanjemoy Community Center

Tue, August 27, 2019 9:00 AM | Pete Czapiewski

Leader:  Pete Czapiewski

Members:

 Elizabeth Niles, Barb Haley, Andy Schuller, Tom Roberts, Sam Perry

Route:  38 miles, 1479 feet. Preview of part of the Indian Head 70 route - from Smallwood State Park to Pisgah. Rest stop at the Nanjemoy Community Center at 20 miles.  https://ridewithgps.com/routes/30921764. 

Weather: Overcast, low 70's. A few sprinkles.

AMS: 18.2 mph

Mechanicals/Mishaps:  Barb flatted on Hawthorne about 5 miles out. She had a pointy shard of glass stuck in the tire. Ride continued after quickly removing the glass and replacing the tube.

Report: We enjoyed the relatively cool weather and low winds today, resulting in speeds a little over the usual. The route was very nice, and we avoided any incidents except for one pickup truck that passed a little closely. Thanks to Jim Hudnall for coming up with this route and for listing the CC ride, which we latched on to.
