%0A2018-01-14 10:00 %0A2018-01-14 10:00 America/New_York The Winter Ride The ride is on for Sunday January 14th.  However, due to low temperatures, there will be very limited participation from the ride leaders, and it is likely that few riders will show up.  If you plan on attending, be prepared that you may end up riding by yourself.  Tim will be there but probably will not do the full 50 miles.   Welcome back to a PPTC tradition, the Winter Ride.  We have been going strong for a decade.  This year we are running the series from December through March.  This is a multi-class ride, with a variety of lengths to suit your preference on any given Sunday.  We have multiple ride leaders (see below) and can have up to 50 riders on a good day, so you are very likely find someone riding your pace and distance. The ride does not go if the there is precipitation (snow or rain) or if the roads are very slick due to recent precipitation.  Check this listing on any given Sunday to see if the ride has been cancelled on a particular day. The ride starts at the Adventure Playground at South Germantown Recreational park.  One of the reasons for the ride start location is the heated bathrooms available year 'round.  In addition, we will be riding on low traffic roads in the Montgomery County AG Reserve. Note: The 32 mile route is here: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/6623422 and Carol will bring some cue sheets.       South Germantown Rec. Park - Adventure Playground (SGRAP)
