2019-10-18 09:00:00 2019-10-18 09:00:00 America/New_York Leave from VMP & join Friday Lunch Ride The plan for Friday 10/18 is to bike to Ledo Pizza on River Rd in Bethesda for lunch, 28 miles round trip. If you want to join the “Friday Lunch Ride” but want most of the miles before lunch (and/or find that an earlier more southern starting point is more convenient), then try this ride. We will start at Veirs Mill Park (VMP) at the North end of Beach Drive and ride up the Rock Creek Trail to Lake Needwood in time for a short break before joining Deborah’s “Friday Lunch Ride”. 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.

Location:Silver Spring, MD
2019-10-23 09:45:00 2019-10-23 09:45:00 America/New_York Wednesday Lunch Ride (El Andariego) An interesting but somewhat hilly 16 mile route (mostly roads, some of Matthew Henson Trail, and a few short connector bike trails) to El Andariego (Mexican) restaurant (http://elandariegomexicanrestaurant.com/) in Ashton MD. Return ride is slightly shorter at about 15 miles for a round trip of about 31 miles. A couple significant hills (~670’ climb to lunch and ~443’ climb on the way back) and the trails will slow our C pace for the whole ride to an average of about 11 miles per hour (slower when uphill and faster when downhill or flat roads). See the Ride Class Table (https://www.potomacpedalers.org/ride-class-table ) for more info on ride classes and average speeds. 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. Don't forget lock, helmet, and lunch money. Please arrive in time to be ready to roll at our departure time of 9:45.   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.
