We almost got away with a dry ride at the D.C. Randonneurs 300K ACP brevet from Frederick, Md. on Saturday. The forecast called for late day showers, and boy did the storms hit hard just before 6 p.m. Our little group stopped 17 miles from the finish in Thurmont to get some drinks and when we left the drops started, then turned to rain, then hard rain for the final few miles to Frederick.
The day itself was partly sunny and warm with a gusty south wind that got us as we turned toward home in the afternoon. All 40 starters finished, with some of the later arrivals sitting in Thurmont while lightning storms passed.
See the results at the D.C. Randonneurs web site.
Thanks to organizer Chris Mento and all his volunteers for a terrific brevet.
