Report:  Light attendance today.  Just John Gorman and myself.  To all who had a chance to participate in today's ride and chose not to I have only one thing to say.  It was your loss.  Words alone can not describe the beautiful scenery we observed today.  The route was described at 50 miles but we had to make a detour due to road construction on Keech Road.  Thank you Walt for giving me a heads up on Friday evening of that situation.  We ended up with 53.9 miles instead.  At one point we even met up with Steve Palincsar and his group at Chaptico Market on our way to Chaptico Wharf.  It was a great day riding in Southern Charles and Saint Mary's Counties today.  Indeed!

    Always a treat to get away from the concrete jungle roads of Charles/PG & same ol , same ol routes in those. Seeing Amish buggiess, fields & water views. Even if it takes 1.5 to get back to Bowie.
