2019-12-07 13:00:00 2019-12-07 13:00:00 America/New_York Lansing Beach Excursion Ride start location: Kensington Train Station, 3701 Howard Ave, Kensington, MD 20895 (longitude/latitude = 39.026773, -77.071982) It is called the Lansing Beach Excursion, in honor of the West Point graduate with the Army Corp of Engineers who improved Rock Creek Park by building the first road there which was eventually named after him.  Maj. Gen. Beach is buried in Arlington National Cemetery.  There was a nice John Kelly column about him in the December 30, 2017 Washington Post.  The ride is basically all on Beach Drive except for starting in Kensington and there is a hilly loop in DC. Note: if the high temperature for the day is below 45 degrees, the ride is canceled which I will update no later than 8am.  The start time for the ride will depend upon the weather forecast though most rides will probably start at 1 pm.  In the event of a warmer day, the start time on the Potomac Pedalers website will changed to an earlier start.  Any changes to the start time (or cancelation due to weather) will be made before 8 am the day of the ride. Cuesheets: if you need a paper cuesheet, please print it prior to the ride from the attached PDF for this ride listing.  I plan to only have a few cuesheets for those who forget to bring one or might not have access to a printer.   - Other Start Location MD
