Weather: More perfect than your wildest expectations.  Sunny, breezy, high 50s at the start rising to the mid-70s (or even above) by noon. 

Route: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/31261876   32 miles, 1082' elevation gain, almost all within the boundaries of the National Arboretum

Mishaps & mechanicals: none

AMS: 9.6

A simply perfect holiday ride, no doubt due to the combination of route, weather and people: incredibly perfect weather, a cheerful, friendly group that quickly fell into the rhythm of a tour (unsurprising, since they've toured together before)  and a scenic route that provided opportunities for dining (Union Market, restaurants on 7th St and dessert at the Dairy Godmother in Del Ray), contemplative touring (the Capitol Columns and the Bonsai Museum) and thrilling riding (on the Arboretum grounds).
