In its 5th year, the Wootton ride is a regular fun group Saturday morning event, suitable for seasoned A/BB/B/CC riders. We ride from Rockville to Germantown, Poolesville, or Clarksburg with frequent variations to keep it interesting.
Typical ride lengths range from 30 to 60 miles and are moderately hilly (MH). Actual ride length and route for each week will be posted in advance.
We make 1-3 rest stops depending on the ride length.
We generally divide into two 3 groups – (A/high BB – average 17-20 mph), (slow BB/B – average 15.5-17 mph), and (slow B/CC – average 13.5-15 mph). Our attempt will be to not drop anybody as long as you can ride with the respective group’s average speed.
We are highly safety conscious, so if you plan to ride in this group, you are expected to follow the ride leader safety cues and safe riding practices.
Please consult the club website (www.potomacpedalers.org) for ride start times or the ride Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/groups/rockvillewoottonride/), but generally we will start at 9 AM in spring and 8 AM in late spring/summer. The ride will leave promptly at the designated time.
The cue sheets will be posted on our FB page and sent via email to those who provide their email address. We will bring limited cue sheets and expect regular riders to print their own cue sheet.
