Sat, January 11, 2020 9:30 AM | Susan Henn

Leader: Eric Nielsen

Members: None

Guests: Jenniffer B., Jim K., David S.

Weather: Mixture of clouds and sun, brisk southerly winds, high 71oF

Route: RWGPS 31703619

Mechanicals: Dropped timing belt at mile 40 due to stick caught in captain's ring, pulling belt inward. Belt was easily remounted.

Average speed: 16.8 miles per hour

D.S. and J.B rode tandem; J.K. and E.N. spun fixed gears. Roads were wet early due to condensation, but gradually dried after 10:30 except in deep shade. We rode a modest pace together until some up-tempo silliness in the final two miles. Sandwiches were purchased at Bowen's in Huntingtown and carried to Scorpion Brewing in Owings for lunch. While eating, the sun punched through the clouds, making the remainder of the ride delightful, as both it and the wind were mostly on our backs.
