2018-11-22 10:00:00 2018-11-22 10:00:00 America/New_York GLEN ECHO LOOPS This ride goes out flat MacArthur to start but becomes hillier as it climbs up and goes thru the Avenel and Potomac neighborhoods, on low traffic and scenic residential streets. The exact route varies from week to week, with a rest stop at Starbucks in Potomac Village.  This is a no drop ride friendly ride. We generally stop for optional lunch at a MacPlaza on MacArthur Blvd, about 2 mi from the end back a Glen Echo. On occasion the ride will go the other way on MacArthur into the Palisades DC and Bethesda. Ride Leader provides cue sheets.      Glen Echo Park (GLE)

2018-11-22 12:30:00 2018-11-22 12:30:00 America/New_York Thursday Lunch ride Take a break in your work day and come join us for a 15-25 mile loop. The front runners keep a zesty pace but the ride leader always sweeps, so all are welcome. The ride leaves from the bike racks at the Marriott HQ on Fernwood. Parking at HQ can be tricky so if you're driving, best to park at one of the many shopping center lots and ride over.   Please let me know if you'd like to be added to the email list for this ride. I send out the route every Wednesday.  - Other Start Location MD

2018-11-23 09:00:00 2018-11-23 09:00:00 America/New_York Leave from VMP & join Friday Lunch Ride If you want to join the “Friday Lunch Ride” but want most of the miles before lunch (starting earlier and further south), then try this ride. We will start at Veirs Mill Park (VMP) at the North end of Beach Drive and ride up the Rock Creek Trail to Lake Needwood in time for a short break before joining Deborah’s “Friday Lunch Ride”. This ride will be the same length (usually about 30 miles) as the “Friday Lunch Ride” if lunch in Bethesda and could be a few miles longer if lunch in a more northern city, such as Olney or Rockville. Please remember to bring helmet, bike lock, and lunch money. Please arrive in time to be ready to roll at our departure time of 9:00. Feel free to use the “Sign Up For This Ride” button above, but at the start of the ride you will still be required to sign the waiver and provide emergency contact info.

2018-11-23 11:15:00 2018-11-23 11:15:00 America/New_York Three National Parks In One Ride With the weather looking to be a sunny brisk Fall day, I plan on leading a BicycleSPACE shop Special Edition #CityExplorers #OptOutBlackFriday ride this Friday (11/23/18) that I am calling the Three National Parks In One Ride! This ride will take us to three National Parks in #BikeDC to the Anacostia, Fort Dupont and Rock Creek Park. Along the way, we ride on the Anacostia Riverwalk, Northwestern, Fort Dupont, Sligo Creek and Rock Creek Park Trails. Meet 11:15 AM BicycleSPACE Downtown shop at 440 K St NW in #bikedc. Wheels roll at 11:30 AM sharp. Water, restrooms, bike pumps at ride start and bikes can be brought into the shop for safety and any pre-ride maintenance. Note: For those looking to do the whole ride from beginning to end I would say the ride will be in the 4 hour range with time allowed for stop and go riding in the city and stopping along the way for group pictures and restroom breaks. No official plans to stop for food, but we can stop for a quick snack at a convenience store if need be. However, I advise bringing your own riding eats. I may have some cue sheets for the ride, but best that you download them and print them out from the provided Ride with GPS link. For those traveling to ride by vehicle, please take note that there are various parking garages and lots within the immediate radius of BicycleSPACE. You can also check out www.spothero.com for parking availability and discounts on nearby lots. And for those traveling by Metrorail, take the Green line and get off at the Gallery Place Chinatown station. Exit the station on 7th St NW and head north 3 blocks to K St NW. Make a right on K St NW and BicycleSPACE is 3 blocks on the right. For directions to the BicycleSPACE, please feel free to call the shop at (202) 962-0123, or use Google Maps.

2018-11-24 09:00:00 2018-11-24 09:00:00 America/New_York Rockville Wootton Ride Rockville Saturday Morning Ride In its 6th year, the Wootton ride is a regular fun group Saturday morning event, suitable for seasoned A/BB/B/CC riders. We will be mostly riding from Rockville to Germantown/Poolesville/Clarksburg with frequent variations to keep it interesting. Our typical ride length will range from 40 to 60 miles and will be moderately hilly (MH). Actual ride length and route for each week will be posted in advance. We make 1-3 rest stops depending on the length of the ride. The group generally divides into two 3 groups – (A/high BB – average 17-20 mph), (BB/B – average 16-17.5 mph), and (B/CC – average 13.5-15 mph). Our attempt will be to not drop anybody as long as you can ride with the respective groups average speed for the length of the ride. We are highly conscious about safety, so if you plan to ride in this group, please make sure that you follow the ride leader safety cues and safe riding practices. Please consult the club website (www.potomacpedalers.org) or the ride Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/groups/rockvillewoottonride/) to confirm the start time and download the cue sheet. Generally we will start at 9 AM in spring and 8 AM in late spring/summer. The ride will leave promptly at the designated time. Please sign up for each ride at the club website. Come join us and enjoy the ride. We will bring limited cue sheets and expect regular riders to print their own cue sheet.   Contacts: Dana Sippel [dgsippel@gmail.com] - (703) 624-9269 Jonas Tahardi [jtahardi@gmail.com] (703) 472-7658 Thomas S.

2018-11-25 10:00:00 2018-11-25 10:00:00 America/New_York Post Turkey Day Ride I wanted to ride on Thanksgivng Day, but it was too cold and windy. I wanted to ride on Friday, but it was too cold. Then on Saturday it was too wet. Finally on Sunday, I get my chance to ride. Maybe not a Goldylocks day, but close enough. I haven't led this ride for a while, but it's still a good ride. One stop at the Lisbon Highs. Come out and join us. Please sign in online (using the button on the website), and print your own cuesheet. We will only have a few with us.

2018-11-25 10:30:00 2018-11-25 10:30:00 America/New_York BVP Rural Rogues Road CC (MF-MH) * 35&52 * VA * Brentsville Park (BVP) * 45° or 95°/50% RURAL ROGUES ROAD.  Mostly downhill with a tailwind.  This route from Brentsville - like all my others - is a beautiful ride in the countryside.  Rogues Road is so named because highwaymen used to enrich themselves at the expense of those looking for their fortune by relocating to the Carolinas.  Unfortunately, it was misfortune that the latter sometimes found along the way.  The short route visits Rogues Road for only four miles while the long route misses only one of its twenty.  There are few hills, and average ascent is - surprisingly enough - less than 50’ per mile.  Regardless, the odyssey is more scenic than hilly and is mostly traffic-free except for a one-mile stretch on Vint Hill Road.  Short:  https://ridewithgps.com/routes /798222 Long:  https://ridewithgps.com/routes /750239 PLEASE BRING YOUR OWN CUE SHEET.  IMPORTANT NOTE:  Ride start is behind the Brentsville Presbyterian Church in the gravel lot. HELMETS REQUIRED.  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.  On Sundays only, toilet available at BVP Presbyterian Church. Questions?  Call me at home NLT 2 hours prior to ride start or on cell thereafter.  Len Wilkinson [len.wilkinson@verizon.net] Home 703/455-0368 or Cell 703/350-9209   CC: Len Wilkinson [len.wilkinson@verizon.net] Cue sheet for 35 mile route bvilleruralroguesroad3552.doc Cue sheet for 52 mile route bvilleruralroguesroad3552.doc Brentsville Park (BVP)
