Leader: Joan Oppel
Members: Ron Altemus, Barb Haney, Don Gardner, Jim Hudnall, Jane Hudnall, Alan Kurzweil, Jay Lewis, Dave Mann, Karen McMillan, Steve Palincsar, Larry Peed, Sam Perry, Andy Schuller, Pat Walthers
Route: Pleasant, easy, familiar
Weather: Heavy cloud cover but temperatures in the 60's and it felt quite warma
Report: A mix of faster, fast and slower riders at the ride start, and the fast and fasters took off first, leaving just 4 of us at the back. Steve and Ron deviated at about mile 7 so Pat W and I went on to the Pisgah Park rest stop. Alan Kurzweil came along just as we got there, as he also deviated from the route (for more miles). Steve and Ron arrived at the park while we were having a snack and we all left together. Another Steve/Ron deviation left Pat and me to ride the IHRT to Bumpy Oak and climb Bumpy Oak by ourselves. It turned out to be a nice route with opportunities for riders to do their own thing if so inclined.
