America/New_York Georgetown Tailgate Ride Note:  the various group rides generally start at different times so we are all more likely to end at around the same time. See below for starting times for the groups.  To minimize our collective footprint, please print your selected cue sheet and/or download its GPX file onto your bike computer.  This awesome multi-class ride caters to every type of recreational bicyclist. All rides typically enjoy Beach Drive in Rock Creek Park, with routes varying based on distance and speed of the group. The CC through A routes favor quiet roads in DC, Maryland and/or Virginia and generally return to Georgetown on Beach Drive with one to two rest stops along the way; the C-CC group's routes blend great trails with quiet residential streets, including, of course, Rock Creek Park. For this month's March ride, we have ride leaders offering these group rides: C/CC (10:00 Ride Start):  Tim Bouquet (27 miles) CC/B (9:30 Ride Start):  Monique Sears (34 miles) B/BB (9:00 Ride Start): Matt Birnbaum and Bill Schulz (50 miles) At ride's end, all are welcome and encouraged to stay around for a post-ride lunch at Mr. Smith’s pub across the street from the park, and where we can bring our bicycles inside!  And for those looking for pre-ride caffeine, there are a suite of options in the neighborhood, including the Blue Bottle Cafe around the corner at 1046 Potomac Street. We also highly encourage folks to leave their vehicles at home.  The Rosslyn Metro Station is around a 1/2 mile away, and the Farragut North station is about a 1-mile trek.  For those needing to drive, you can probably find free parking on residential streets above Q Street or otherwise try www.spothero.com for discounts at the local parking lots.
