%0A2017-06-21 18:00 %0A2017-06-21 18:00 America/New_York Downtown Breakaway (B version) This is a slightly modified, shorter version of the “BB/A” route for riders who don’t keep up with the front pack. With little traffic at rush hour downtown, it’s a moderately paced ride through the hills of upper Northwest, stretching out toward Potomac as the daylight increases. Flat and fast along MacArthur for return to Mitchell Park. Please see the listing for the A/BB ride for map/GPS and cue sheet info. It's STRONGLY advised to bring front and rear lights for safety, as we can get caught in the dark if delayed by mechanicals or road conditions. Additionally, for safety reasons (and because it's the law in Maryland), no headphones will be allowed on any Downtown Breakaway rides. Ride leaders will ride at a by-the-books “B” pace with a regroup or two along the way for slower riders to catch up. See details about parking, etc. in the “BB”/”A” description.
