Matthew Henson Creek Trail Ride 7/29

We, the Maryland Cycling Group, had a great time on the Matthew Henson Creek Trail, a 4.8 mile trail that is hardly used. Despite a few walkers, the trail belonged almost to ourselves. Many of us were able to see a snake in the middle of the trail that just ate dinner and 3 bucks. A few that went ahead got a bit lost, but eventually caught up with the rest of us that were waiting at the end of the trail.

Afterwards, we enjoyed dinner to get to know each other. Here is a video I took of the trail
