%0A2019-11-13 10:15 %0A2019-11-13 10:15 America/New_York Wednesday Lunch Ride (Slapfish) From VMP we will ride a somewhat hilly loop (mix of roads and some paved bike trails) around Bethesda of 11+ miles to lunch at Slap Fish in North Bethesda (aka South Rockville?). After lunch, it will be a shorter ride of about 7 miles back to VMP (about 18 miles round trip for whole ride).  I expect that the trails and a several hills (~486’ climb to lunch and ~240’ climb on the way back) will slow our average C pace for the whole ride to 10-11 miles per hour (slower when uphill and faster when downhill or flat roads).  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 10:15.   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.
