Location:Washington, DC
2019-06-19 18:00:00 2019-06-19 18:00:00 America/New_York Downtown Breakaway Did you know that you could ride in DC at rush hour and not be in the midst of cars? It's true! Come join us on this beautiful ride through the tree lined streets of NW and out to Potomac. The ride goes up and down many hills between Dupont Circle and Glen Echo, great for building up for the season's big event rides like Storming of Thunder Ridge or the Garrett County Gran Fondo (and it beats the pants off the repetition of laps at Hains Point). The return, as the daylight is fading, is a group roll along MacArthur Blvd, good for working on group riding skills. The faster A riders will do a proper rotating paceline, while slower A and BB groups will do something less technical. Something for everyone - the division between A and BB usually happens closer to the return leg, which most people (hopefully) know, though the cues are easy for said stretch. Plenty of short cuts along the way to finish by dark or make your evening date. NOTE: this is not a race training ride, but a group ride that occasionally has some faster elements. Race tactics, especially diving into corners, blindly leading fellow riders through intersections, crossing a double yellow line, attacking in a group paceline, etc., will not be tolerated. Anything that endangers the safety of the group can result in immediate and potentially permanent dismissal from the ride. If race training is what you want, please check out the Greenbelt race series. It's MANDATORY to bring front and rear lights for safety, as we can get caught in the dark if delayed by mechanicals or road conditions. Too speedy for your tastes? There is a B group as well. Ride leaves from the stairs and "Speed Hump" sign at Mitchell Park, S St NW, between 22nd and 23rd Sts. There is street parking in the neighborhood, but please be mindful of zone regulations which are in effect until 8:30 PM and somewhat strictly enforced (there is limited free parking in front of the former Textile Museum and Wilson House). Leaders may alternate week to week, alternating according to availability. No go in steady rain or impending thunderstorms - late-breaking announcements on Pedalers Google Group and Potomac Pedalers website. Please email the ride organizer to be added to the DTB email list (used to distribute cues, GPS files, etc.). Organizer: Rudi Riet * [rudi@songfta.com] Mitchell Park (MIT)
