Four County 82 mile ride

I did my annual (well, not in 2020) bike ride from our house to friends' house in Lusby MD, crossing Montgomery, Prince Georges, Anne Arundel and Calvert County. Beautiful weather for the ride, but the road debris gods decided to punish me for not bringing along my mini tire pump - got a wire shard flat at mile 52. Did a roadside tube replacement and CO2 inflation and was back in business, albeit with a squishier rear tire. A lot of the last 40 miles of this ride are on the shoulder of RT 2 and RT 4 and seemed to be an above average level of shredded tire debris this time. I could have added 3 miles and increased the climbing from 3,300 feet to 3,800 feet and avoided a lot of Rt. 2 but I decided to take the shorter route.

My wife and another couple drove down and the 6 us enjoyed deck time on the dock of our friends' house on Mill Creek, dinner in Solomon's Island and then home made blueberry pie and chocolate cake to celebrate an upcoming birthday.

The route
