America/New_York Tuesday Lunch Ride (Slap Fish) From VMP we will ride a somewhat hilly loop (mix of paved bike trails and roads) around Rockville of about 22 miles to lunch at Slap Fish in North Bethesda. After lunch, it will be a short ride of less than 3 miles back to VMP.  Please note the earlier start time of 9am.  I expect that the trails and a several hills (~810’ climb to lunch and ~70’ climb on the way back) will slow our average C pace for the whole ride to 10-11 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. 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.
