Location:Germantown, MD
2020-03-22 10:00:00 2020-03-22 10:00:00 America/New_York The Winter Ride Series Welcome back to a PPTC tradition, the Winter Ride.  We have been going strong for more than a decade.  The series runs from December through March.  This is a multi-class ride, with a variety of lengths to suit your preference on any given Sunday.  We have multiple ride leaders (see below) and can have up to 50 riders on a good day, so you are very likely to find someone riding your pace and distance. The ride does not go if there is precipitation (snow or rain) or if the roads are very slick due to recent precipitation.  Check this listing on any given Sunday to see if the ride has been canceled on a particular day. The ride starts at the Adventure Playground at South Germantown Recreational Park.  One of the reasons for the ride start location is the heated bathrooms available year 'round.  In addition, we will be riding on low traffic roads in the Montgomery Ag Reserve.   Note: The PPTC site limits the number of ride distance options to 4.  So, the fifth option, the 32 mile route is here:  https://ridewithgps.com/routes/6623422 Ask Carol for cue sheets.

2020-03-28 09:00:00 2020-03-28 09:00:00 America/New_York Georgetown Tailgate Ride While it may be winter, we still great riding to enjoy together. Please enjoy a  50 mile ride with us! If you’ve done this ride before, you know we meet on time & we go on time from the foot of Wisconsin Ave. at K Street in Georgetown. We head northwest along many of the usual roads, with the 50-miler rest stop at the Travilah Market.  Then it’s back along enoyable roads to Rock Creek Park and Georgetown. This is a mix of flat and rolling hills (and also the climb out of Rock Creek Park.) To increase the chances that everyone arrives together, this group ride starts earlier than the The 27 C/CC group ride.  Yet, after the end of each ride, many of us walk our bikes into Mr. Smith’s Pub on M St. just west of Wisconsin and get lunch. And beer of course. Or just beer. To minimize our carbon footprint, please print your selected cue sheet and/or download a GPX file onto your bike computer. We will not distribute cue sheets at the start. We highly encourage folks to leave their vehicles at home. The Rosslyn Metro Station is around a 1/2 mile away, and the Farragut North station is about a 1-mile trek. If you arrive early and need a little pre-ride caffeine, there are many options in the neighborhood, including the Blue Bottle Cafe around the corner at 1046 Potomac Street. and Bluestone Lane a half-block up from the ride start at 1066 Wisconsin Avenue. If you have any questions, please get in touch. Matthew Birnbaum [noshbygosh@icloud.com] [(202) 895-0979] Tim Bouquet, C/CC Group Ride Leader [timothy.bouquet@gmail.com]  Georgetown Water Park (GWP)
