8/30 Friday Indian Head Rail Trail ride ALL class

Fri, August 30, 2019 10:00 AM | Ron Altemus (Administrator)

Leader:  Ron Altemus

Members:  Susan Altemus, Kirk Fedder, Donaro Gardner, Vicki Garlock, Nancy Hankin, Barb Haney, Diane Harris, Jane & Jim Hudnall, Fran Jezisek, John Riconda, Esther Stewart; plus Bob Moye seen on the trail

Route:   our favorite rail trail, the IHRT from Indian Head Village Green to White Plains and back

Weather:   sunshine, light breezes, temps from the mid 70s to mid 80s, and a bit more humidity but still pretty nice

AMS:   low 13s or higher for most of us

Mechanicals/Mishaps:  none reported

Report:  lots of different small groups traveling at various speeds, all with copious amounts of conversational cycling.  Wildlife sightings included turtles, lizards, two great blue herons together, rabbits, groundhogs, and plenty of butterflys.   At White Plains, we encountered a couple on a Bushnell Tandem that were traveling cross country.  They had started in Oregon and with a final destination of the Atlantic.  From the IHRT, they were going to head over the the Three Notch Trail, work there way down through St Mary's County, and ferry over the Eastern Shore over the weekend.  The Bushnell was constructed with S&S couplings and could be configured for 3 or 4 riders.  Quite interesting.
