Come out to the Nokesville, Virginia countryside on Sunday, August 24th for a day of riding and fun ending with a barbecue/picnic. Now in its 17th year this annual gathering has grown into one of Potomac Pedalers largest events, regularly drawing over 200 riders of all ages and abilities.  As always, its open to everyone --new, old, and nonmembers.  This is a multiclass ride with something for everyone, with rides ranging from 11-51 miles, covering classes from A to D. Its a great way to meet people who are not in your usual ride class. Three couples who met at past Nokesville Picnics have gotten married!

After the ride we
ll gather at the pavilion for food. Well provide main dishes, drinks, plates, napkins, cups, utensils, and condiments.  Everyone is encouraged to bring a side dish salad, chips, other dishes or desserts to share which always results in an excellent potluck selection!

We are stressing going
green at this picnic by encouraging lots of recycling and reuse.  Feel free to bring your own reusable plates or utensils to keep trash at a minimum.

Although we hope for a lovely day, this event is rain or shine.  The pavilion is large and quite nice, so don
t be discouraged if we happen to have bad weather well all stay nice and dry under cover in the pavilion.  An information table will be available before and after the rides to answer questions anyone might have about each ride option, or how to join the club.
