A Sunday 48 Mile Ride From Davidsonville, MD

Sunday, March 18, 2012: Davidsonville, MD Park and Ride

This was my first long ride of the 2012 cycling season.  I had only been on my bike once about a week ago for a 15 mile jaunt around my neighborhood that did include hills; but this was my first real test of the season.   A little chillier start than had hoped, but all in all, the weather wasn’t really a problem.  I rode with Adam S, Kim “pinkalicious” G, and Scott “Big Ron”.   

This is a NICE ride!   Nice countrysides; rolling hills; not so rolling hills, and nice downhills.  Our average pace was around 17.5 MPH; not so shabby for mid March.  After riding, cleaning up a bit, headed over to Baltimore Coffee and Tea Company in Annapolis; which if you havent been there, you should go – this place rocks!   Then after, went over to Pusser’s in the Marriott Waterfront Hotel in Annapolis for some post ride beverages and grub on a very comfortable leather couch by a fire.

This was a good day and I will visit these places again!

Tip of the Day:  When riding, ride with friends who understand that it’s not how fast you go “while not racing” but the adventure between clipping in and out.  Image
