    Leader: Michael Dong

    Member: Nate H.

    AMS: 16.8 mph

    Total distance: 43mi.

    Mech/Miss: none

    Weather: SPLENDID! If you didn't ride, swim or run this AM, you missed out.

    Great training ride with small ring work. Best quote was Nate saying "Hmmm, just can't seem to break past 170 rpm." Met up with Randy on the IHRT while doing our cool down miles, and split from there. Found a MDL on the trail, couldn't find the owner, and lucked out in getting it in the mail just as the PO delivery jeep arrived in our neighborhood. Superb workout that was aerobic and fun.

    Mechanicals/Mishaps: missed turn by Lou, but recovered quickly.

    Report: Great day for a flat, fast ride and another look at the new Cedarville bridge!

    A humid, but cloudy and relatively cool day for mid-summer, a good day for a fast-paced flat ride - Sam's Gallant Green (but without the Gallant Green: should this ride be renamed?)

    Six riders rode together - Harold Datz, Blythe Henold, Steve Palincsar, Pat Walthers, Rita Zeidner and your trusty ride leader.  The company was enjoyable and the cloud cover was appreciated. The Moreland store is having an enclosed porch built (at least that's what it appears to be). We admired the new Cedarville bridge and a kingfisher with fish in beak was spotted at the small pond on Accokeek Rd in the housing development just before the Route 5 intersection.  


  • Thu, July 27, 2017 9:30 AM | Samuel Perry

    Ride Leader- Sam Perry

    Riders: Mike Saizan, Regina Saizan, Mike Bivens, Alan Kurzweil, Norm Lisy, Larry Peed, Susan Henn, Eric Nielsen, Darrell Meyer.

    Weather : Partly Cloudy in the mid Seventies at Ride Start. Humidity was on its comeback run.

    Every now and then you need a Flat Road Ride. Today we had an A/AA Leader, a B Leader and a CC Leader for today's ride. I used to promote this route as "almost as flat as an eastern shore ride".

    As the Ride Leader I enjoy watching the riders regrouping as compatibles according to ability and skills. Working together as each take a turn at pulling the group along.  

    We had two rest stops on this route, with at least one with indoor plumbing/bathrooms. There were no mechanicals on today's ride. One rider was not feeling well and reported to the ride leader before departing from the group prior to the second rest stop. The B class had an AMS from 16-4 to near 17.

    The ride leader swept the rear.

    Members:  Rod Barnes and Calvin Conyers

    Mechanical/Mishaps:  None

    Another great evening to ride the trail and there was plenty of activity - walkers, pets walking owners, runners, and other riders. We saw plenty of rabbit, deer, ground hogs, and of course bugs.

    Thanks gentlemen for coming out.

  • Wed, July 26, 2017 5:30 PM | Michael Dong

    Leader: Michael Dong

    Members: Sherwood B., Joe G., Valerie E., Tyler H., Jerry H., Tommy H., Lou D., Troy E., Reggie ? please forgive me with names, as he caught us during the ride.

    Guests: Henry J.

    Weather: Fabulous mid 80's ... without the Disco Scene

    AMS: at back 13.8mph, up front significantly faster 17+mph

    Mech/Miss: 1each, flat, slow leak type, post ride. Joe's floor pump to the rescue!

    BLUF: Great weather, great ride.

    Fantastic split group today, with faster riders out front quickly, and all meeting back up at the Marshall Hall launch for a brief break. The weather held nicely, and the shade sections are superb. Welcome to Henry (guest of Joe's) whom we enjoyed riding and chatting with. Please keep the guest referrals coming, as that's the future of any quality and inviting club. There was post ride talk about scheduling a "workout-training" ride for late afternoons, perhaps Friday's? We'll see if there's interest. Cheers!

  • Wed, July 26, 2017 5:30 PM | Blake Altman (Administrator)

    Ride Leader:  Blake Altman

    Date: July 26, 2017

    Ride Name:  Casey Jones Express

    Ride Distance:  25 Miles

    Average Speed of the Ride:  22.1 MPH

    Ride Class:  AA/2 Express

    Mechanical Issues:  None

    Mishaps:  None

    Weather: Upper 80’s, Partly Sunny, Low Humidity

    Guest Riders:  Dan Tille

    Member Riders:  Andre Burton, Eric Williams, Mike Wilson, Chris Zebriskie, Mike Dent, Michael Blaine, Gordon Schrader, Anthony Carter

    Ride Report:

    The big news is that the bridge on Route 6 is down to one lane with a traffic light in control.  We discussed using the alternate route but decided to stick with the standard one.  We experienced some delay at the light but it didn’t seem to cause a safety problem.  Other than that it was a good ride with nice weather.

  • Wed, July 26, 2017 5:30 PM | Jean Wright

    Ride Leaders:  Bruce and Jean Wright

    Member Riders:   Joel Carnug, Lynne Blake-Hedges, Ken Lemmert

    Guest Rider: Richard, Mike Mullinaff

    Mechanical Issues/Mishap: Lost rider

    Weather: HOT and HUMID!- low 90's

    AMS: 18 mph (A leader)

    Ride Report:  Welcomed Richard, a new rider to the CJE and OHBIKE! We started out together and broke up small groups based on speed:  Mike and Lynne (fastest), Ken and Jean (middle group), and Bruce, Joel, and Richard (B pace).  Well, we thought Bruce and Richard were together.  When Ken and Jean came across Mike Wilson who was changing another flat (3rd CJE flat this year), Bruce and Joel caught up and stopped as well.  Where is Richard?  We tried calling him and could not reach him.  We decided to return to our cars to see if he was there.  No he was not.  We were concerned and kept trying to reach him.  We thought about looking for him, but did not know where to start.  Eventually, we made contact with him. He missed a turn and rode route 6 to route 5 and back. We waited for him to return.

    Leader: Barbara Haney

    Members: Ron Haney, Alan Kurzweil, Mike Bivens, Darryl Lowery, Darrell Meyer, Dave Hutchinson, Tom Roberts, Lou Dallorso, Jim Hudnall, Sam Perry, Larry Peed

    Route: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/21840740, Hawthorne, Rose Hill, Chapel Pt, Fairgrounds, Hawthorne, Marshall Corner, Pomfret

    Weather: All of a sudden, we're not in DC summer anymore: in the 70s, low humidity and breezy

    AMS: 17.6 for leader

    Mechanicals/Mishaps: one flat tire that unfortunately was not repairable

    Report: Today's ride was pretty uneventful. Lou had to turn back almost immediately after the tire he fixed in the parking lot went flat again. After that there was nothing particularly noteworthy, outside of the unusually fantastic weather: we broke into smaller groups as everyone went their pace on the hills and into the wind, but we all arrived both at the rest stop and back at the parking within a few minutes. We enjoyed the ice machine and the porch at St. Ignatius, always nice after the 10 or so % grade to get there. At the end of the route, a few people went back out to ride a few more miles. It was the first So. Exposure ride for new member Dave H, and he said he plans to return. Thanks to all for riding, and let's hope this weather sticks around!

    Another great evening to ride the trail.  Although there was not much activity on the trail, we enjoyed it nonetheless.  Throughout our travel, we saw plenty of rabbit, deer, and of course bugs.
