Leader: Ron Altemus
Members: Jane & Jim Hudnall
Route: Indian Head Rail Trail, Livingston Rd parking lot east to White Plains and return
Weather: temp range of 50-53 degrees; air movement approx. 7-9 mph out of the SW; almost completely overcast except for some interludes of sun approaching White Plains; light rain commencing at ride's conclusion.
AMS: 14 mph
Report: given that it is January 3, the weather was fairly nice. And at least three club members have ridden every day of 2020. We maintained a good pace in both directions, not seeing any other cyclists on the trail and maybe a half dozen walkers or joggers. Reaching the parking lot on our return, we continued west to get a few more miles. The aforementioned rain started as we crossed Hawthorn so we only rode to mile marker 2, surveyed Mattawoman Creek in its winter solemnity, and returned to the parking lot. Our midday repast was at the Lunch Box.
