%0A2017-08-13 09:45 %0A2017-08-13 09:45 America/New_York Lunch in Shirlington Another great ride from the original Ride-To-Eat™ production team! Both MEMBERS AND NON-MEMBERS are very welcome to join us for this social ride, followed by lunch at Capital City Brewery (free parking in garages and lots on weekends). NO WEBSITE SIGN UP is needed – just show up (registration is done at the ride start). We meet at 9:45 am for a 10:00 am departure on the brick plaza in front of the Shirlington Library / Signature Theater on Campbell Avenue in Shirlington (in Arlington).  See you there!!!! [P.S. Between 10:00 am and noon you are welcome to join the leader on the bike trails of Arlington (the Arlington Loop: traveling first on a portion of the W&OD Trail, then the Custis Trail, the Mount Vernon Trail, and the Four Mile Run Trail) with a rest stop in Lyon Village, and a brief regrouping at Gravelly Point. (Cue sheet on PPTC website). The 3-4 miles on the Custis Trail are hilly; the rest of the ride is pretty flat. Leader rides a slow “C” pace; all levels welcome (those wanting more or fewer miles may wish to continue up the W&OD and return to join us for the main event: lunch!).  It would be wise to bring a helmet, water, picture identification, a bike lock, money for lunch, and a bicycle in good repair with properly inflated tires.   The ride leader is very likely to cancel the ride if the chance of precipitation is greater than 30%, the temperature is below 40 degrees or greater than 90 degrees, or the wind speed is greater than 10 mph, or there is ice/snow on the trails. If the weather looks doubtful it is particularly important to check the Ride Schedule on the PPTC website for a late cancelation notice. Alternatively, you may email the ride leader on Saturday or before 9:00 am Sunday to see if the ride is a go. NOTE:  Please ignore any phone number shown below; it is non-functioning.  It is there only because the website is incapable of leaving the phone number blank when creating multiple instances of a weekly ride.
