7/11 Tour de Accokeek - All Class - 16

Wed, July 11, 2018 5:30 PM | Jim Hudnall (Administrator)
Leader: Jim and Jane Hudnall

Members: Randy and Jackie Schoch, Troy Eddy

Guest: Denise Davis

Route: This easy ride winds through Accokeek and goes down Marshall Hall Road to the Potomac River. After a break, up Barry's Hill and back to the fire house.
Weather: It was warm, but a cooling breeze and lots of shade made for pleasant cycling.

AMS: 14.8 mph in the middle with some faster and other slower.

Mechanicals/Mishaps: None

Report: It was great to do this ride again and have Randy, Jackie, Denise and Troy join us. Troy arrived early and had already done the loop once. This was Denise's first time to ride with the club and we looking forward to seeing her again. The rest stop on the Potomac River is always peaceful and we watched a boat pulled from the water and another one launched. This is an easy ride for beginning riders but can also challenge stronger riders with a fast descent down Marshall Hall Road and a bit of work getting up Barry's Hill. Extra treat - everyone ended up at B&J's after the ride for sandwiches and ice cream.  Join us on Wednesday for this ride.
