Leader:  Diane Harris 

Members:  Tom Short, Ken Meredith, Kirk Saunders, Barbara Haney, Theresa Rowell, Sean Dixon

Guests:  None

Route:  Manokeek Espresso, 45 miles

Weather:  Cool with starting temperature mid 50s, dry. 

AMS:  15.8

Mechanicals/Mishaps:  Tom had a rear flat within 2 miles of the start caused by a tack or nail embedded in his tire.  Fortunately it was found and removed by Kirk.  No other mishaps.

Report:  Seven of us took advantage of a cool dry Sunday morning to ride 45 miles of Charles County's backroads.   The only mechanical (a rear flat) took place early in the ride, tube was changed, and we continued on our way.  At the rest stop (Ollies), we encountered a large group of motorcyclists, some wearing jackets with " Iron Order" on the back, also out enjoying a Sunday morning ride.  They went their way and we went ours.  We finished the ride with no further mechanicals or mishaps.
