    Report: 

    Great day for a fast, flat ride.  Patricia went out first while the rest of us tried to catch her.  She's a good rabbit; we didn't catch her until mile 40!  Jim joined us around mile 10.  Lou dropped us around mile 20...never to be seen again.  Where's Waldo!  But he made it back OK.  Thanks to all who came out and made this ride very enjoyable.  Cheers.

    This ride was posted on OHBike and PPTC.  We had 13 riders total.  3 signed in on Oxon Hill both sign in sheets were available, not sure that all riders made sure to sign in on the correct one.  Some riders ride routinely with both clubs.

    A group of 8-10 stayed together for the bulk of the ride.  The Ride Leader finished toward the back and with a 13.3 mph avg.  There were no incidents and several riders commented that they liked the route.

    The rest stop was at almost 23 miles and 1 rider thought that was a bit far, but it was a nice stop with many riders from another club too.

    Report:  It was sprinkling while we were airing up the tires.  It stopped just before we started and was beautiful for the remainder of the day.  Nice ride as usual.  Some wind but nothing out of the ordinary for riding at the beach. 

  • Fri, August 04, 2017 1:10 PM | Michael Dong

    Solo ride today. Looking forward to rolling with Nate, Joe, etc. next Friday!

    Dist: 46.2mi total

    AMS: 18.8mph training, 14.9 after IHRT meet-up

    Mech/Miss: Nate's bike is buggered today, DNS

    Weather: Spectacular morning in the 70's, light breeze

    Headgame day with former riders from LA Sheriff, Subaru, GS Meschio, Cyclo-Vets and Euro-Velo. Fast warm-up with Bart running out front as usual, Bud jumped the break and they gapped 30 secs, forcing the rest to take the grades past Smallwood seriously. Dave, Giulieme, Arnie, Fokker, and Esquivel did their best to pace high, and out of saddle jumps were on every uphill section. The Mason Springs road has been patched, making the rollers a delight, smooth and fast now. Fast leadout down 225, only to be nipped by Naz, where the heck did he come from!? Excellent headrace, and great meeting up at Village Green to cool down with the IHRT Friday group ... although Calvin still made me work (in a good way) :)

    Not many of us today but there were lots of trail users. Jackie and Belinda joined us at the Livingston Road Parking Lot. Members Bev White, Judy Mutty, and Bob Moye were riding the trail today. We all rode at our individual paces and met up at the White Plains rest area where we had a nice visit. After Jackie's suggestion while at the White Plains rest area, we called George's to place our order to be sure we would get chicken wing dinners. We saw turtles (including a very large one), eagles, a turkey, many deer, and many other birds. After our break at White Plains, we picked up our pace on the return leg into a head wind. We stopped by George's for lunch where Susan and Belinda ate lunch. Calvin and I picked up Wing Dinners which we took home to our "better half's".

    BEST OF BRANDYWINE NK40-HUGHESVILLE AGAIN Class B 40 mi.

    Thu, August 03, 2017 9:30 AM | Sonja Newman

    Members: Patricia Sanders, Susan Henn

    Route: North Keys Park to Hughesville. GRACIAS…RIDE LEADERS Lisha and Alan for LEADING rides A and B.
     
    Weather: Sunny at the start, hot summer weather at the finish!!!

    AMS: Cycling Pace 12 – 14AMS

    Mechanicals/Mishaps: No Mechanical Mishaps


    Report: Enjoyed this 40 mile ride to Hughesville and back with two riding partners, Susan and Patricia. At the start, we asked faster rider to lead out to help alleviate rider congestion. The first leg of the ride we rode at steady pace with a few short intervals. As we pedaled through there were moments of wind, sun, excess warmth and shade.

    Saw Ken Meridith in the opposite direction on St. Peters Church Road.

    We met up with both the A and B riders at the Sunoco Station Rest stop. We were told Regina's front tire got caught in the tracks at Gallant Green. Hope all is well w/Regina!!!

    The rest of the ride felt comfortable and relatively quick to the end. Nothing quite like the feeling of propelling yourself along Brandywine chatting with fellow riders at a sustainable pace.

    Upon return, air temperature and humidity had taken its toll on Susan. With the assistance of Patricia, Sam, Alan and George we quickly began a few steps to avoid overheating. I gave her water to drink and encouraged her to continue drinking to replace the fluids, poured cool water over her neck, forehead and arms and placed a cool pack over her back. (thanks, George for the Cool Pack)

    Leader: Lisha Peacock 

    Members: Barb Haney, Ron Haney, Tom Roberts, Brad Francisco, Lou Dallorso, Darrell Meyer, Tyler Hill

    Guests: none

    Route: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/21237495

    Weather: mid-70's at start, a little muggy but pleasant once we were moving; mid-80's by rides end.

    AMS: 20+ at the front, 18+ for sweep

    Mechanicals/Mishaps: one of the B-group riders got caught in the tracks crossing Gallant Green just before it intersects with route 5.  This is an aggressive track that has grabbed the tires of a few OHBTC cyclists lately.  

    Report: Another fun, fast jaunt through Hughsville!  Thanks to Alan and Sonia for posting to lead the B and CC groups today, and to the AA riders for setting a fun and motivating pace!

  • Thu, August 03, 2017 9:30 AM | Alan Kurzweil

    Leader: Alan Kurzweil

    Members: Regina Saizan, Mike Saizan, Mike Bivens, Norm Lise, Sam Perry, Bob Howell, and Tom Short

    Route: North Keys Park to Hughesville. Thanks to Lisha for the ride route.  Last week we were disappointed that Sam's Gallant Green didn't actually go on Gallant Green.  Lisha fixed that for this ride.

    Weather: Warm at the start and pretty toasty at the finish.  Summer is baaaack!

    AMS: The group stayed together for the most part, average speed in the mid 16's

    Mechanicals/Mishaps: Regina took a tumble on the railroad tracks on Gallant Green near Rt 5.  The group stayed together while sorting out the incident, making sure Regina was okay, and directing traffic.  It is always amazing to see how caring OHBTC riders are, as well as the community.  Many drivers stopped to see if they could help, including one gentleman who drove Regina to Bike Doctor in Waldorf.  Mike Bivens called Bike Doctor to look out for Regina.  Regina is fine with some scrapes and bruises, the bike will need a small part and will be fine also.  We expect Regina to be back in our ranks very shortly!

    Report: It was a great group ride.  We stayed together pretty much the whole ride with an unspoken slowing to let us all regroup when necessary.  Thanks to our Motor Bob Howell INDEED! who pulled most of the way. Myrtle Beach did wonders to his fitness.  Thanks also to Mike Saizan and Norm Lise for sweeping duties.

    Leader: Michael Dong

    Members: Sherwood B., Richard P., Tyler H., Tommy H., Jerry H., Joe E., Jim H.

    Guests: none

    AMS: 14.6 mph at the back

    Mech/Miss: Tire kiss at the beginning, great recovery by Tommy in keeping balance and riding out of it.

    Weather was superb this afternoon, with a slight breeze to start, and comfy temps when you were moving. Tommy did a stellar job of staying upright, and riding out a tire touch with a rider in front, when a turn got a bit tight. Tommy didn't lean into the rear wheel, and applied brakes while turning away, making it look easy (I may have gotten it on GoPro, we'll see). No yelling, swearing, or harsh feelings ... it's one of those things that will happen to everyone, like falling while clipped in. Apologies said, and the world is back in balance :) Namaste!

  • Wed, August 02, 2017 5:30 PM | Mia Haynes

    Ride Leader:  Mia Haynes

    Members:  Calvin Conyers, Rod Barnes, and Daryl Stinnett

    Guest:  Warren Smith and Erick Satchell

    Mechanical/Mishaps:  Calvin caught a flat at Arthur Ross PL.

    Today was another great day.  Our guests proved to be excellent riders.  About 4 miles into the ride Erick decided he wanted to open it up, so of course we followed suit.  At one point the ride leader, leading from the rear, was clocking an AMS of 18 - at which point Calvin and I decided to dial it back and let the others do their thing.

    On the return trip, a couple of riders passed us, which caused Erick, Rod, and Daryl give chase.  In the meantime, Calvin hit a rock, which caused his back tire to go flat.  Warren, thank goodness, did not give chase with the others and was there to assist with changing Calvin's tire.

    As we were changing the tire, Tasha Harris and her little man showed up.  We rode together for about 8 miles, at which time Tasha turned around and headed back.  About that time Rod and Daryl can be seen in the distance heading our way, so we all re-grouped and rode on in.  Erick, had gotten off the trail at Middletown Road and headed home - which is what he stated he was going to do at the beginning of the ride.

    The trail was busy, with the normal: walkers, runners, other riders and of course the animals: cow, deer, squirrel, rabbit, and dogs walking their owners.

    It was a great ride.  Warren enjoyed himself and said he was joining as soon as he got home.  

    Thanks for coming out guys.
