Report: The ride was inclusive of all groups, and quickly settled into a 'fast' group and a 'slow' group. We all did meet at Patuxent River Park, but separated again quickly. The slow group went through Merkle with just a quick bathroom stop and then headed back to the parking lot. It was an excellent day to go for a bike ride, nice scenery and nice quiet roads.
