9/22 Art in the Park 27 miles CC/C

Sun, September 22, 2019 1:00 PM | Ron Altemus (Administrator)

Leader:  Ron Altemus

Member:  Bernard Steward

Route:  The IHRT, Hawthorne, and Chicamuxen took us to Smallwood Park and the Mattawoman Creek Art Center (MCAC).  Return followed the IH 100 26-mile route in reverse:  Bicknell, Pisgah Marbury, the Stuckeys, Poorhouse, Ripley, Hawthorne and the IHRT back to our start.

Weather:  Sunny, upper 80s, tolerable humidity

AMS:  14.4 mph (a personal 2019 best)

Mechanicals/Mishaps:  None

Report: both Bernard and your faithful correspondent wanted a few more miles than the Hudnalls' ride, and the route selected served that purpose well.  We all rode together to the MCAC and then on the return, left the other group when we turned onto Bicknell.  Very little vehicular traffic coupled with the sun angle providing lots of shade made for an enjoyable ride.  Jane's report has links to the afternoon's festivities.
