As was foretold in the
August Pedal Patter (p.1), these rides precede a club picnic at the big park
pavilion. The club will provide main
dishes, along with plates & utensils, paper goods, et cetera, and
participants may pitch in with the usual assortment of side dishes that make
potlucks so much fun! Anyone interested
in helping out is encouraged to contact Mike Divine at MikeDevine74@me.com (and
note that there is a short ride arranged for set-up volunteers; but you might
help with clean-up after the picnic and so do one of the longer rides).
Directions: Nokesville is located approximately
40 minutes from the Beltway, in southern Prince William County. Allow
extra time to park and get prepared, as rides start promptly at the advertised
times (with a goal of bringing all in for the picnic close together).
