2019-11-24 10:30:00 2019-11-24 10:30:00 America/New_York BVP Vint Hill Farm CC (MF) * 40&53 * VA * Brentsville Park (BVP) * 45° or 95°/50% VINT HILL FARM Mostly downhill with a tailwind.  This route from Brentsville is an amalgam of rides from BVP and my Hill and Dale ride from TYL – all said, it is a beautiful ride through the countryside.  The short route is relatively flat with a few ascents while the long route is noticeably hillier.  Vertical gain is 1,003’ (30’/mi) and 2,161’ (41’/mi) respectively, but the long route is about 90’/mi in the parcel purloined from the Hill and Dale route.  Both will be enjoyable whichever distance you choose or your money back!  The decision point is shortly after the 17-mile point. Short: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/30997593 Long:  https://ridewithgps.com/routes/17334528 PLEASE BRING YOUR OWN CUE SHEET.  IMPORTANT NOTE:  Ride start is in the gravel lot behind the Brentsville Presbyterian Church. HELMETS REQUIRED.  I may cancel if the forecasted high is above 95 or below 45 degrees or chance of precip is 50% or more.  Always check the PPTC ride schedule if weather looks marginal or for other factors.  On Sundays only, toilet available at BVP Presbyterian Church. Questions?  Call me at home NLT 2 hours prior to ride start or on cell thereafter.  Len Wilkinson [len.wilkinson@verizon.net] Home 703/455-0368 or Cell 703/350-9209 Brentsville Park (BVP)

2019-11-30 08:00:00 2019-11-30 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.

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
