The DVC gathered at the Gateway Shopping Center for one of the few events on the calendar.
A road tour through backcountry roads the Conowingo Dam was the first stop, then onward to Lees Landing in Port Deposit on the Susquehanna River.
The weather was just spectacular, sunny, in the 60’s and no humidity. A true gift for the club to enjoy.
The Conowingo Dam was built in 1928, and one of the largest non-Federal Hydro-electric dams in the US. It is home to a variety of birds, including eagles that troll for fish off the dam. There were many Herons that gathered on the lower marshes around the dam. We relaxed at the dams seating areas for a bit, just taking in the sights, and enjoying the weather. We only glimpsed one eagle.
The DVC then regrouped for a spirited ride to 100 bikes... beautiful bikes of all kinds.
The food was great – the beer was better!

After lunch, we strolled by the river, before heading home. It was a really great day; great cars, good roads, and great friends.
