The ride of 25 to 30 miles starts from the lower parking lot at Glen Echo Amusement Park on MacArthur Boulevard. Most weeks, it takes one of three routes that wander to a rest stop (with comfort facilities) usually in Potomac and one of four routes back. These routes, each with a number of variations, loop on shady residential streets and have more than 1,000 feet of climbing. Occasionally, the route instead will find its way over to Beach Drive. It is a social no-drop ride with regrouping as needed. Optional lunch 1.5 miles from the end at MacArthur Plaza.

NOTE: This is a recurring ride. ALL RIDERS MUST REGISTER EACH WEEK. For new riders, emergency-contact information is collected at ride start. Since the ride changes each week, all riders on the Glen Echo ride distribution list get a weekly email with the cue sheet and the Ride with GPS link.

Watch for a rescheduled date!!

Both routes are lovely, surprisingly flat loops through beautiful, quiet countryside. We'll spend a lot of time in West Virginia in what might be the only flat part of the state. You don't need to make a decision on which route to ride until Mile 40. The longer route includes a short, 11 percent climb. It also goes through the picturesque village of Millwood.

The only opportunities to buy supplies are at a 7-11 at Mile 9 and at the various shops in Berryville (around Mile 31). If you opt to ride the long route, you can pick-up something delicious around Mile 47 at the Locke Store.

It takes about 80 minutes to get to this ride start from I-66 and the Beltway. I led a ride from near this location two weeks earlier and people seemed to say it was worth the drive. This ride is much less hilly than the ride I led in April.

Ride Start: Boyce Elementary School, 119 W Main St, Boyce, VA

No Drop Ride with regroup at W. Offutt Rd after Mt. Nebo Rollers and a second regroup before the right hand turn onto Whites Ferry Rd after Elmer School False Flats so we can all finish together. I think this ride would be suitable for B riders as well due to the regroups.

The ride of 25 to 30 miles starts from the lower parking lot at Glen Echo Amusement Park on MacArthur Boulevard. Most weeks, it takes one of three routes that wander to a rest stop (with comfort facilities) usually in Potomac and one of four routes back. These routes, each with a number of variations, loop on shady residential streets and have more than 1,000 feet of climbing. Occasionally, the route instead will find its way over to Beach Drive. It is a social no-drop ride with regrouping as needed. Optional lunch 1.5 miles from the end at MacArthur Plaza.

NOTE: This is a recurring ride. ALL RIDERS MUST REGISTER EACH WEEK. For new riders, emergency-contact information is collected at ride start. Since the ride changes each week, all riders on the Glen Echo ride distribution list get a weekly email with the cue sheet and the Ride with GPS link.

For Covid vaccinated riders, a weekly ride primarily through the rolling neighborhoods of Bethesda and Potomac. Usually, the exact route is at the whim of the ride leaders, so there are no cues and the distance varies. The group stops to regroup at all decision points and at the ends of any significant climbs. When there is interest, a longer option is often available (with a rest stop.)

Coffee shop and socializing near end of the ride.

On holiday's a RidewithGPS file of a 30ish and 50ish mile route will be posted here.
