Route: Calvin's favorite, the one we love, the original, Indian Head Rail Trail from the Village Green to White Plains and return.
Weather: temps ranging from 82 - 86 degrees with a hint of humidity, lots of sunshine and southerly breezes. The time of day and sun angle resulted in large segments of the trail being shady.
Mechanicals/Mishaps: none known to your faithful correspondent.
Report: What a great turnout to honor the wonderful friend and club member that was Calvin E. Conyers. 62 of us, members and guests, rode the trail he loved. Lots of memories and stories of riding with Calvin were shared this afternoon.
With a group this large, we did spread out and not everyone rode all the way to White Plains. But all of us did get down the trail 5.77 miles to the OHBTC bench overlooking the pond at Bumpy Oak. The third slat on that bench will be inscribed in remembrance of our departed Past President, Calvin. He loved to ride the trail and played no small part in its coming into being. For those that did make it White Plains, we were greeted by black and gold balloons and signs honoring Calvin courtesy of Daryl's wife Adrienne (thank you, Adrienne).
