Terry’s Dispatch: Today’s Monocacy Middle Ride (August 5) was a peel-off ride. We started out with 10 people: Kayla Hutchins, Vicki Crum, Kathy Dollar, Ray Gable, Ian and Lynne Hewitt, Jeff Johnson, Allen Mitchell, Bruce Thetelman and myself. At 3.0 miles, Vicki Crum peeled off. At 3.5 miles, Bruce Thetelman peeled off. At 12 miles, Ian and Lynne Hewitt peeled off. Six of us arrived back at Monocacy Middle School having done 21 miles together. Ray, Kathy and I biked home, as well as Jeff who had biked 24 miles from home.
On the ride, we stopped and visited Lee Nelson, who was mowing his lawn, instead of riding with us this week. We took our usual picture on Mountaindale Road, but made it a quick one, since it smelled funky, kinda like a dead animal near by. Lynne rode her beautiful new green Gunner touring bike.
It was a nice ride with warm weather and no rain!
