7/10 - Southern Exposure: Riverside & Nanjemoy - A 38 miles

Tue, July 10, 2018 9:00 AM | Ron Haney

Leader: Barbara Haney

Members: Mike Saizan, Regina Saizan, Tom Short, Dave Schnirel, Don Gardner, Tom Roberts, Sam Perry, Ron Haney, Kirk Saunders, Lou Dall'Orso, Pete Czapiewski

Route: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/27999510, riding some of Riverside, stopping at Nanjemoy Community Center, returning home via Mason Springs/Livingston

Weather: Warm to start, but noticeably hotter and more humid after the stop

Report: Due to unforeseen delays at home, ride leader was almost late, but thankfully Mike Saizan had a premonition that he might need to bring an extra sign-in sheet. He had the process well underway by the time we arrived, and Joan O gave the pre-ride talk while we were getting ready. Result: we started almost on time! Thanks to you both for your help! 

We had a pretty good-size group between the As and Bs, since it's hard to resist a ride on the beautiful and shaded Riverside. We all kept up a good steady pace getting to the Nanjemoy Community Center; most of us stopped in to enjoy the AC and comfy chairs. When we got started again, it was almost unpleasantly warm and humid, causing us to slow the pace a bit, but we still enjoyed a bit of shade on Mason Springs and endured the final bit up Livingston. Mike and Regina were their usual ever-helpful selves, making sure all the Bs were accounted for, and cooling us with the Saizan Super-Sprayer!
