America/New_York Thinking of Winter Ride: In the Summer Ok, it is going to be hot, damn hot.  Perhaps if we start early, and ride the Winter Ride course from the Adventure Playground in Germantown, we can feel cooler (maybe in our own minds). Come do one of the courses, and be done by 9 am.  Spend the rest of the day glowing from having done a great ride, wile sitting in cool air conditioning.  You can even laugh at the folks that started later and suffered in the heat. Bring plenty of water. Update:. The rest stop in Dickerson will not be open when we get there. The Port-a-potty will be available. We can stop in Poolesville at the Crown Gas & Convenience store for fluid and snacks. South Germantown Rec. Park - Adventure Playground (SGRAP)
