9/19 Best of Brandywine: Baden Naylor - 5 Points - Eagle Harbor

Thu, September 19, 2019 10:30 AM | Stephen Palincsar (Administrator)

Ride leader: Steve Palincsar

Members: The ride was billed as "C/CC and Friends."  C/CC was Pat Walthers; Friends (i.e., A/B) included: Larry Peed, Barb Haney, Donaro Gardner, Linda Bankerd, Jane & Jim Hudnall, Sam Perry, Jay Lewis

Weather: Given what we've been used to all summer, it was shocking cold: 64, cold enough to (briefly) think about cancelling - but then I came to my senses and put on a long-sleeve jersey and all was well.  It got up to the high 70s by the end of the ride.

Route: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/31127856  37 miles, 1280' of elevation.  Larry discovered they were doing work at the railroad crossing at Cedarville and Ashbox, so we skipped the < and stayed straight on Brandywine.  Several of the Friends skipped the journey down to Eagle Harbor, as so often happens.

Mishaps & mechanicals: none

AMS: 11.7 at the back

It was a grand day for a ride.  Jim filmed the whole thing.
