Ride Report:

We had a quick ride down toward Cobb Island probably because the breeze was mostly behind us. We ran into Robert Smith and I friend (or client?) of his on Rock Point Road. We saw them again when we rejoined Rock Point from Mt. Victoria Road and then we chatted with them a bit at the rest stop.

We had a bit of a head breeze, it wasn’t strong enough to call it a wind, on the way back. The pace along with the breeze may have been a bit too much for Lou who started to lag behind on Route 301. We waited for him but eventually he told us to continue without him and since he rode to the start and I wasn’t sure where he might split-off, we continued. I texted Lou after the ride but I didn’t get a response.

Phil and I had a good ride and I’m hoping Lou did too.
