Route: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/5580959 30 mi, 1400' elevation. The route took Martin to Molly Berry and Molly Berry north to Croom (losing Lou and Janell, who turned left onto North Keys in the process, Lou permanently), Mattaponi to St Thomas Church back to Croom, then down Mt Calvert to a stop at the historic house. Retracing on Mt Calvert (with a slight exploration by Alan and Janell up McClure -- which I think has been closed for probably the last 25 or 30 years) we took Duvall to Croom Airport down to the Pavilion for a rest stop. Retracing on Croom Airport after the break, we took Croom to Duley Station and down Van Brady to Molly Berry, North Keys and back to the park.
Weather: 40s and breezy: 46-47, 8-10 mph wind. The sky was clear when we reached Mt Calvert (the view of the Patuxent was beautiful) but clouded up as the afternoon wore on.
Mishaps & mechanicals: none
AMS: 11 mph
