2020-01-25 08:00:00 2020-01-25 08:00:00 America/New_York Georgetown Tailgate Ride Predictions are for a hot and sunny Saturday, so fill up your water bottles and lather on the sun screen for a really nice 40 (CC/B) or 50 (B/BB/A) 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. in Georgetown. We head northwest along many of the usual roads, with the 50-miler rest stop at the Travilah Market and the 40-miler rest stop at the Cabin John Shopping Center (Tuckerman & Seven Locks). Then for both, it’s back along equally familiar roads to Rock Creek Park and Georgetown. This is mostly flat and shaded with some rolling hills (and not counting that short bit out of Rock Creek Park, including possibly Tilden toward the end. Let’s be honest.) To increase the chances that everyone arrives together, our group rides for 40 miles (B/CC) and 50 miles (BB/B) start at the same time – 8:00.  The 27 mile ride (CC/C) starts at 10:00 AM. Afterwards, 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. For those needing to drive, you can probably find free parking on residential streets above Q Street or otherwise try www.spothero.com for discounts at the local parking lots. 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.
