Ride leader: Steve Palincsar

Members: Mary Scala, Karen Morgan, Janell Saunders, Dave Van Amayden

Weather: Another perfect day: sunny, partly cloudy, breezy, temperatures in the mid-70s to mid-80s.

Route: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/31049176  36 miles, 1366' elevation gain.  Leaving Pisgah Park we took a big loop down Bicknell and back up Pisgah Marbury to Annapolis Woods and Firetower and a rest stop at Scott's Store in Welcome; then went up Durham Church and down Ironsides to Hancock Run and Adams Willett and a second stop at the Nanjemoy store (where we had lunch in the closed bar area in air conditioned comfort).  Return was north on Jacksontown, then MD-6 to Mason Springs.   A very pleasant route with lots of shade, nice scenery and almost no traffic.

Mishaps & mechanicals: None

AMS: 11.6 at the back.

A nice route, a great day and a congenial group: what more could anyone want?  Today we did some of the roads in North Nanjemoy that weren't on the IH100, and some near Pisgah that were but in the reverse direction.
