CC * 37 * DC * 11:00 AM * MLK Day Ride!
East Potomac Park Golf Course (EPP)
Location:Washington, DC
2020-01-20 11:00:00 2020-01-20 11:00:00 America/New_York MLK Day Ride! Join me on MLK Day (1/20/20) as I will lead a Potomac Pedalers Urban Adventure Bicycle Ride that honors the fight and struggle of Martin Luther King Jr's legacy to build a free and equal world dedicated to social justice. Now, the weather for the day is calling for sunny skies with temperatures holding above the freezing mark with mild winds. But don't let a little cold deter you from coming out and struggling through this ride! We will stop along the way to warm up. The ride comes in around 35 miles at 1,400 feet of elevation, which will take us to the MLK Memorial, Emancipation Memorial, African American Civil War Memorial, the Contrabands and Freedmen Cemetery, MLK Elementary School and an off the beaten path MLK "I Have A Dream" Mural. Meet 10:45 AM East Potomac Golf Course located at 972 Ohio Dr SW, Washington, DC 20024. Wheels roll at 11:00 AM sharp. Water, restrooms, bike pumps at the ride start. Obviously, we will stop along the way for breaks and quick eats at a convenience store. However, I advise bringing your own riding eats. The ride should come in around the 3-4 hour range at around 12-14 mph range. It is a no-drop ride, but please feel to drop in and bring a friend! Also, I may have some cue sheets for the ride, but best that you download them and print them out from the Ride with GPS route link here: https://cutt.ly/Arcsmqy For those traveling to ride by vehicle, please take note parking is free on at the East Potomac Golf Course Park in the back big lot and meet at the East Potomac Park Golf Center sign down in front of where the Potomac Grill is located. And for those traveling by Metro, take either the Blue, Green, Orange, Silver or Yellow line and get off at the L'Enfant Station. Exit the Station on 7th St SW and head south for about 4 or 5 blocks to Maine Ave SW. Make a right on Maine Ave SW and go about a half-mile and make a left on Ohio Dr SW and travel about a mile and the Golf Course will be on your right.

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.

This ride's later start increases the chances that everyone riding in one of the days' group rides arrive back at the ride start at around the same time and so can then celebrate a post-ride meal together at Mr Smith's Pub, across the street from Georgetown Water Park, and where may of us walk our bikes inside and get lunch. And beer of course. Or just beer. Predictions are for a nice Saturday, so fill up your water bottles and lather on the sun screen for a fun ride with us!

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. If you have any questions, please get in touch. CC/C: Tim Bouquet [timothy.bouquet@gmail.com] BB/B: Matthew Birnbaum [noshbygosh@icloud.com] [(202) 895-0979]   Georgetown Water Park (GWP)

2020-06-27 09:00:00 2020-06-27 09:00:00 America/New_York Georgetown Tailgate Ride Predictions are for a cool but sunny Saturday, so fill up your water bottles and ahve the layered clothing ready 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 BB/B group ride d 50 miles starts at 8:00 and our B/CC group ride of 40 miles starts at 8:15.  After the en d of the 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. A bunch of us likely will head to the Nats' 2 PM parade after. 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. Buses run regularly as well along M Street and Wisconsin Avenue in Georgetown.  For those needing to drive, though, 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.
