Four riders (Jack Hammond, Grant Bagley, Jimmy Bartlet, and Paul Bankerd) signed up for the slower version of the two St. Patrick's Day Extravaganza rides departing from and returning to John Baggett Park in Laurel Grove. The group enjoyed some of the best scenery Northern St. Mary's & eastern Charles Co. have to offer. Weather conditions were outstanding! There were no mechanicals or flats.
Grant shifted to the B pace riders early in the ride. Jack was able to set a longest ride mark for this young cycling season. Jimmy, on the other hand, set a cycling career distance and average speed record when he finished with 45 miles at an AvS of 13 mph. Congratulations, Jimmy!
We finished up at Laurel Station, next to the park, for lunch & green beer or green ice cream, depending on your orientation.
