This ride was posted by co-ride leaders, Calvin Conyers and Herman Young, for members and guests not participating in the Smeco 75. Although it was posted on only 2 days notice, 19 riders joined the leaders. We also had our first pooch--Teeny--sharing the ride. Once the group warmed up on Berry Rd Hill, they enjoyed rollers, flats, and just enough remaining climbs to keep things interesting. All found the first rest stop at Cedarville Deli well placed.
All riders completed the route without any mechanical problems. However, one rider did miss the turn at Ash Box. She did not panic, but stopped immediately and with quick thinking phoned the ride leaders, making possible to quickly return to the group at the rest stop. After the Wawa stop, 6 riders decided to extend the route by 5 miles by returning to the start via Floral Park Road. Thanks Sam Perry for accompanying that group. Thanks Jackie and Randy Schoch, Ann-Marie and Byron Harris, William Beale, Ani Hortini, LaTasha Banks, Mike Beshe, Nancy Ruth (Teeny's owner), Sam Perry, Walter Carr, Ken Meridith, Belinda Acre, Chris Sega, Gigi and Juan Talasta and Ryan Bond for coming.
