Potomac Pedalers “Poolesville Pool & Picnic Ride.” A great ride with a great picnic and swim after the finish. I rode at a decent pace, averaging 20.3 mph over the first 20 miles, which was a bit too fast to keep up for the duration. But I did fine, rode strong, and saved enough in the tank for tomorrow’s ride. I saw an egret up-close – close enough that its wingtip touched me on the shoulder a few times – very cool. And the conversation after the ride was great – I really love my bike club.
