The front runners keep a zesty pace but the ride leader always sweeps, so all are welcome. The ride leaves from the bike racks at the Marriott HQ on Fernwood. Parking at HQ can be tricky so if you're driving, best to park at one of the many shopping center lots and ride over.   Please let me know if you'd like to be added to the email list for this ride. I send out the route every Wednesday.  - Other Start Location MD

2019-07-25 18:10:00 2019-07-25 18:10:00 America/New_York Thursday Night Trainer This is generally a fast paced cooperative training ride through the Laytonsville area and Patuxent River valley. Same route as in previous years. The ride leader will make no attempt to keep the group together for the ride, so make sure you have a cue sheet and know where you are going. Ride leader will insist on single file riding until the top of Howard Chapel Rd. because of the traffic and narrow roads. No go in rain or on wet roads. Please park in the far corner of the parking lot near the donation bins. Layton Village Shopping Center (LAV)

Please check here weekly for distance/destination info and any possible cancellations due to weather.  This ride will be the same length as the “Friday Lunch Ride” if lunch in Bethesda and could be a few miles longer if lunch in a more northern city, such as Olney or Rockville. Please remember to bring helmet, bike lock, and lunch money. Please arrive in time to be ready to roll at our departure time of 9:00.   Feel free to use the “Sign Up For This Ride” button above, but at the start of the ride you will still be required to sign the waiver and provide emergency contact info.

2019-07-26 18:10:00 2019-07-26 18:10:00 America/New_York Scenic Social Germantown Rec Park Friday Night ride This is the Friday night scenic social ride.  The rides run from end of March and go as long as daylight and start times allow (Sep/Oct).  Start times will vary to accommodate the changes in sunset times and to try and start as late as possible but allowing enough time to complete the ride before dusk. Please check the calendar for the latest start times. Ride is about 26 miles and we typically aim to complete in 90 minutes. Ride length is ~26miles with several regrouping points along the way. We usually wait at these points for others to catch up.  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 Friday to see if the ride has been canceled. 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. Some of these roads are rough (Sugarland for example) so please make sure you have a spare tube along just in case.   South Germantown Rec. Park - Adventure Playground (SGRAP)

2019-07-27 07:30:00 2019-07-27 07:30:00 America/New_York Rockville Wootton Ride In its 7th year, the Wootton ride is a regular fun group Saturday morning event, suitable for seasoned A/BB/B/CC riders. We will be mostly riding from Rockville to Germantown/Poolesville/Clarksburg with frequent variations to keep it interesting. Our typical ride length will range from 40 to 60 miles and will be moderately hilly (MH). Actual ride length and route for each week will be posted in advance. We make 1-3 rest stops depending on the length of the ride. The group generally divides into two 3 groups – (A/high BB – average 17-20 mph), (BB/B – average 16-17.5 mph), and (B/CC – average 13.5-15 mph). Our attempt will be to not drop anybody as long as you can ride with the respective groups average speed for the length of the ride. We are highly safety conscious, so you are expected to follow safe riding practices. Please consult the club website (www.potomacpedalers.org) or the ride Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/groups/rockvillewoottonride/) to confirm the start time and download the cue sheet. The ride will leave promptly at the designated time. Please sign up online by clicking the green button at the top left at the club website. Come join us and enjoy the ride.

2019-07-27 08:00:00 2019-07-27 08:00:00 America/New_York Historic Bridges Ride We wanted to find something relatively gentle before tackling the hills near the Brewery on Sunday. This ride from Utica seemed to fit the bill. Although there are two rest stops offered, you can choose whether to stop at both or not. Please print your own cue sheet, we will bring a few extras with us. Also, if you do not sign in online, you will need to sign in at the ride start. If the weather is iffy, check the website the morning of the ride.  Utica District Park (UDP)

2019-07-27 08:45:00 2019-07-27 08:45:00 America/New_York Saturday Lunch Ride (Black Market Bistro) We will start at Veirs Mill Park (VMP) at the North end of Beach Drive and ride a ~23 mile route to the Black Market Bistro in Garrett Park.  This is a relatively easy route with only 1 significant hill and only about 289’ climb to lunch per Google Maps.  Since Black Market Bistro is at the top of a hill, we cannot avoid climbing that hill.  The return will be less than 1 mile back to VMP with no hill climbing.  I expect our C pace to an average of about 12-13 mph for the whole ride.  This is a social ride where we try to stick together. However, if you would to prefer to ride at your own pace, then please let me know and I will bring a printed cue sheet for you. Please remember to bring helmet, bike lock, and lunch money. Please arrive in time to be ready to roll at our departure time of 8:45.    Feel free to use the “Sign Up For This Ride” button above, but at the start of the ride you will still be required to sign the waiver and provide emergency contact info.   Veirs Mill Park Recreation Center (VMP)
