Ride Report: Cloudy and low 70's made for a very pleasant ride.  Riders spread out according to their own speeds, though we met up at the Pavilion rest stop at Jug Bay.  Two wildlife encounters:

The leader was informed there was a frog in the women's room and upon encountering it, successfully urged it from its entrapment.

Then, heading up Croom Airport Road, a turtle was attempting to cross but it turned around and scampered (turtle style) back into the woods from which it came.

Thanks to all who came - it was a fun ride.
