10/30 A Class 38 - Southern Exposure: Pre-Halloween Excursion

Tue, October 30, 2018 10:00 AM | Pete Czapiewski

Leader:  Pete Czapiewski

Members:  Barb Haney, Tom Roberts

Route: AKA The Ghost (Shaped) Ride. Bryans Road Shopping Center to Indian Head and return. 37.8 miles, 1210 feet elevation gain. https://ridewithgps.com/routes/28851535?beta=false

Weather: Low to mid 50s. Clear and moderately windy.

AMS: 18.1 mph

Mechanicals/Mishaps: None.

Report:  Three A riders started with the CC and Friends group, but opted for a different route, which avoided the out-and-back segments (as well as the spooky sites).  The first 16.8 miles were relatively hilly, and were completed in just under an hour.  New speed bumps on Chatsworth Drive made that climb a little more difficult. After a quick rest stop at the gas station near Berry and Middleton, we headed out for the relatively flat 21 remaining miles to complete the ride. We were able to up the pace, but had to work to cut through the headwinds that seemed pervasive. Thanks to Barb and Tom for coming out riding cooperatively throughout, and to Barb for the route.
