* Cancelled * Did you know that you could ride in DC at rush hour and not be in the midst of cars? Its true! Come join us on this beautiful ride, through the tree lined streets of NW and out to Potomac. The ride goes up and down many hills between Dupont Circle and Potomac, great for building up for the seasons big event rides like Mountains of Misery, the Civil War Century, and the Back Roads Century (and it beats the pants off the repetition of laps at Hains Point).

Cancelled Due to Rain

A "Blast From the Past" move of the Downtown Breakaway to Tuesday, due to the July 4th holiday! 

Did you know that you could ride in DC at rush hour and not be in the midst of cars? Its true! Come join us on this beautiful ride, through the tree lined streets of NW and out to Potomac.

The ride goes up and down many hills between Dupont Circle and Potomac, great for building up for the seasons big event rides like Mountains of Misery, the Civil War Century, and the Back Roads Century (and it beats the pants off the repetition of laps at Hains Point). The return, as the daylight is fading, is flat and fast along MacArthur Blvd, good for working on speed and paceline skills.

Something for everyone – the division between "A" and "BB" usually happens closer to the return leg, which most people (hopefully) know, though the cues are easy for said stretch. Plenty of short cuts along the way to finish by dark or make your evening date, though its STRONGLY advised to bring front and rear lights, just in case.

Too speedy for your tastes? There is a B/CC group as well. Ride leaves from Mitchell Park, S St NW, between 22nd and 23rd Sts. Parking in the neighborhood, but please be mindful of zone regulations which are in effect until 8:30 PM and somewhat strictly enforced (there is limited free parking in front of the Textile Museum and Wilson House).

Leaders may alternate week to week, according to availability.

No go in steady rain or impending thunderstorms --late-breaking announcements on Pedalers Google Group and Potomac Pedalers website (this latter also features map & GPS files for the week's specific route).
