2019-03-29 17:30:00 2019-03-29 17:30:00 America/New_York Scenic Social Germantown Rec Park Friday Night ride This is the Friday night scenic social ride.  The rides run from end of March and go as long as daylight and start times allow (Sep/Oct).  Start times will vary to accommodate the changes in sunset times and to try and start as late as possible but allowing enough time to complete the ride before dusk. Please check the calendar for the latest start times. Ride is about 26 miles and we typically aim to complete in 90 minutes. Ride length is ~26miles with several regrouping points along the way. We usually wait at these points for others to catch up.  The ride does not go if there is precipitation (snow or rain) or if the roads are very slick due to recent precipitation.  Check this listing on any given Friday to see if the ride has been canceled. 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 Ag Reserve. Some of these roads are rough (Sugarland for example) so please make sure you have a spare tube along just in case.   South Germantown Rec. Park - Adventure Playground (SGRAP)

2019-03-30 09:00:00 2019-03-30 09:00:00 America/New_York Georgetown Tailgate Ride This awesome multi-class ride caters to all bicyclists in the Club. While all rides will enjoy Beach Drive in Rock Creek Park and scenic northwest DC neighborhood roads, the routes vary based on ride class. The CC through A routes favor great quiet roads to Potomac and adjoining areas before heading back to DC along Beach Drive with one to two rest stops; the C ride blends great trails with quiet residential streets.  For this month's Jul ride, we have ride leaders offering these distances for these groups: CC/B: Ron Tripp (51 miles) B/BB: Matt BIrnbaum  and Bill Schulz (63 miles) All are welcome and encouraged to stay around at ride’s end for a post-ride lunch at Mr. Smith’s pub across the street from the park. And for those looking for pre-ride caffeine, there are a suite of options in the neighborhood, including Blue Bottle Cafe around the corner at 1046 Potomac Street. Note: we highly encourage folks to leave their vehicles at home with the Club helping secure the bikes at post-ride lunch in Mr Smith's.  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.

2019-03-30 10:00:00 2019-03-30 10:00:00 America/New_York Historic Bridges Ride Spring is making a tentative entrance, but any sunny day is a great day to ride!  Enjoy a scenic route around Frederick County’s quiet rural roads.  It’s been a couple of years since I’ve ridden this area, but I remember it to be moderate with some rollers thrown in for good measure. I’m a solid CC, but everyone who can read a cue sheet or a GPS file is welcome.  As of this writing, I don’t have a paper cue.  I will put one together in the next several days and post it. No Go in rain or high wind.  Check back by 7 a.m. on ride day for cancellation. Utica District Park (UDP)
