Ride Leader:  Joan Oppel 

Ride Distance: 36 miles   

Weather: Bright sun, close to 40 at ride start, warmed up into the low 50's

Member Riders:  Ron Altemus, Donaro Gardner, Alan Kurzweil, Karen McMillan, Steve Palincsar

Mechanicals: Flat tire

Ride Report: Our route took is in a large half circle up Barry's HIll to Accokeek and then Davis over to Berry Road, where we took Mill Hill and eventually arrived at the 7-11 rest stop at Middletown and Smallwood roads.  Unlike most Tuesdays, traffic was busy today - must be last-minute shopping. But we also spent about 8 miles on the Indian Head Rail Trail. The group rode together on some sections, hung out at the rest stop together, rode until we hit the trail for the 6 mile section between Middletown and Hawthorne, then split along the trail. Ron, Steve, Don and I regrouped at Livingston - just in time for Ron to have a flat near the intersection with Hawthorne. It was quickly fixed with a team effort and we headed for Chapman's Landing and the return.
