Weather:  Temperatures in steady 39-41 throughout the ride, sun, early light headwind

Ride Report: We had a very enjoyable ride, all of us glad to be on the road again, there was sun mixing with clouds to make interesting sky patterns and lots of snow still in the woods and on fields. We encountered some remaining ice patches on the roads in a few places but they were easy to avoid - with caution. We had the entire Smallwood Park to ourselves! And watched eagles soaring over the Potomac from the iced-in shoreline. A good day on the bike.
