(excuse the multiple posts. I’m catching up on my ride reports)
There were so many nice things about this year’s Chesapeake Beach ride:
I saw new faces (Dan, Gabe, Mike L., and Kathy) and familiar riding buddies (PJ, Isaias, Moji, Mike H., Tom and Janet). Temperatures were at least 10 deg. cooler than last year. The over-all ride pace was very reasonable (unlike previous years). Three new riders rode personal bests, 100+ miles in a day and Dan, finished 135! I was near the tail-end of the group by the end of the day (though I rode a quicker pace than last year), nonetheless the whole group was waiting for me at the 3/4 stop and at the end. That’s ride leader appreciation. Thanks y’all.
