Leader:  Ron Altemus

Members:  Susan Altemus, Kirk Fedder, Jane & Jim Hudnall, John Riconda, Randy Schoch, Esther Stewart, Jan Tucker

Guests:  Earl Shingler (who joined the club shortly after - Welcome, Earl!)

Route:   the Indian Head Rail Trail, Livingston Road parking lot to White Plains and return. 

Weather:  lots of clouds but no precipitation, temperatures remaining in the low 70s, reasonable humidity, and wind out of the east 10-15 mph.

AMS:   swept in the mid 12s, helped significantly by the tailwind on the return leg.

Mechanicals/Mishaps:  Earl's crank was loose and he needed periodic stops to tighten it but was able to complete the ride w/o problem.

Report:  John started his ride early by going up to the Village Green and then meeting us at Livingston Road.  Jan, riding from home, basically did the same, leaving us on the return at Middletown.  Jane, Jim, and Earl continued on to Indian Head for extra miles.

Only wildlife sighting for today was a single squirrel.  There were numerous other trail users, including cyclists, walkers, and joggers.
