America/New_York LOOP de LOOPS. C/CC (MH) * 27 * VA * South Run Rec Center (SRRC) * 45°or 95°/50% LOOP de LOOPS.  This is my traditional MLK day ride, albeit about one week late.   The ride itself is close-in and takes us on several loops that use bike paths or quiet and wide neighborhood streets.  The first loop is a wide circumvention of Burke Lake Park  - but not the gravel trail - also using short, hilly roads inside Fairfax County Parkway and Ox Road.  Another loop is past the old Lorton prison and into Occoquan Village - the hill out of the village is very LONG but gradual.  Yet another loop is along Lake Mercer and points east; a short portion of this loop has been widened and repaved, but it is still a narrow bike path.  https://ridewithgps.com/ routes/241780 PLEASE BRING YOUR OWN CUE SHEET.  HELMETS REQUIRED.  Directions: South Run Rec Center, 7550 Reservation Dr, Springfield, VA.  Go through the paved parking lot adjacent to the Rec Center and to the lot at the lower field house.  I may cancel if the forecasted high is above 95 or below 45 degrees or chance of precip is 50% or more.  Please check the PPTC ride forum if weather looks marginal.  Questions? Call me a day before the ride or on my cell phone thereafter.  Len Wilkinson [len.wilkinson@verizon.net] HOME: 703/455-0368 or CELL: 703/350-9209.   South Run Recreation Center (SRR)
