%0A2019-10-09 09:00 %0A2019-10-09 09:00 America/New_York Wednesday Lunch Ride (Black Market Bistro) We will start at Veirs Mill Park (VMP) at the North end of Beach Drive and ride a ~21.5 mile route (mostly roads and some paved bike paths) to the Black Market Bistro in Garrett Park.  This is a relatively easy route with only 1 significant hill and only about 280’ climb to lunch per Google Maps.  Since Black Market Bistro is at the top of a hill, we cannot avoid climbing that hill.  The return will be less than 1 mile back to VMP with no hill climbing.  I expect our C pace to an average of about 12-13 mph for the whole ride.  See the Ride Class Table (https://www.potomacpedalers.org/ride-class-table) for more info on ride classes and average speeds. This is a social ride where we try to stick together. However, if you would to prefer to ride at your own pace, then please let me know and I will bring a printed cue sheet for you. Please remember to bring helmet, bike lock, and lunch money. Please arrive in time to be ready to roll at our departure time of 9:00.    Feel free to use the “Sign Up For This Ride” button above, but at the start of the ride you will still be required to sign the waiver and provide emergency contact info.
