10/9 Southern Exposure

Tue, October 09, 2018 3:36 PM | Joan Oppel (Administrator)

Leader:  Joan Oppel

Members:  Ron Altemus, Chantal Briere, Chuck Coe, Barb Haney, Jim Hudnall, Jay Lewis, Steve Palincsar, Larry Peed, Sam Perry, Randy Schoch, Bob Thompson, Jan Tucker, Pat Walthers

Route: Hawthorne, St Ignatius, La Plata, Quailwood, Hawthorne, Bumpy Oak

Weather: High 70's, humid, sunny

AMS: Whatever is needed to manage ride leader responsibilities
Mechanicals/Mishaps: Steve had a flat entering the bad S-curve on Chapel Point Road: ssssssssssssssssssssssss heard loudly from behind.

Report:  Several different levels of riders showed up, as befits a ride labeled CC & Friends. The riders broke up into small groups. As noted above, Steve had a flat. He decided there was a possibility that the flat was caused by an issue with brake pad rubbing on tire. He accepted an offer by Pat to return to get her car and pick him up.

Jim, Jay, Larry, Randy, Jan, Sam, Ron and I regrouped at St Ignatius, visited the La Plata gas station for an official rest stop and more or less finished the ride around the same time (the "less" part is that Ron went off on the IH trail to add more miles).
