2019-10-24 10:00:00 2019-10-24 10:00:00 America/New_York GLEN ECHO LOOPS This ride goes out flat MacArthur Blvd bike path to start, but becomes hilly as we go up into Avenel or Potomac neighborhoods, riding on low traffic scenic residential streets. The route varies each week, with an optional 3 mile loop to neighborhood off River Rd. before the break, at Potomac Village Starbucks. Return route varies through Potomac and Avenel. Optional lunch at MacArthur Plaza about 1.5mi from end in Glen Echo. This is a friendly social no drop ride. Because routes vary, cue sheets are provided.   Glen Echo Park (GLE)

2019-10-24 12:30:00 2019-10-24 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

2019-10-25 09:00:00 2019-10-25 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 (and/or find that an earlier more southern starting point is more convenient), 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”. Please check here weekly for distance/destination info and any possible cancellations due to weather.  This ride will be the same length 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.

2019-10-26 08:00:00 2019-10-26 08:00:00 America/New_York Georgetown Tailgate Ride Predictions are for a hot and sunny Saturday, so fill up your water bottles and lather on the sun screen for a really nice 40 (CC/B) or 50 (B/BB/A) mile ride with us! If you’ve done this ride before, you know we meet on time & we go on time from the foot of Wisconsin Ave. in Georgetown. We head northwest along many of the usual roads, with the 50-miler rest stop at the Travilah Market and the 40-miler rest stop at the Cabin John Shopping Center (Tuckerman & Seven Locks). Then for both, it’s back along equally familiar roads to Rock Creek Park and Georgetown. This is mostly flat and shaded with some rolling hills (and not counting that short bit out of Rock Creek Park, including possibly Tilden toward the end. Let’s be honest.) To increase the chances that everyone arrives together, our group rides for 40 miles (B/CC) and 50 miles (BB/B) start at the same time – 8:00.  The 27 mile ride (CC/C) starts at 10:00 AM. Afterwards, many of us walk our bikes into Mr. Smith’s Pub on M St. just west of Wisconsin and get lunch. And beer of course. Or just beer. To minimize our carbon footprint, please print your selected cue sheet and/or download a GPX file onto your bike computer. We will not distribute cue sheets at the start. We 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. If you arrive early and need a little pre-ride caffeine, there are many options in the neighborhood, including the Blue Bottle Cafe around the corner at 1046 Potomac Street. and Bluestone Lane a half-block up from the ride start at 1066 Wisconsin Avenue. If you have any questions, please get in touch.

2019-10-26 08:15:00 2019-10-26 08:15:00 America/New_York Georgetown Tailgate Ride Note: This is the same group ride as that starting at 8:00 except this one is for CC/B riders cycling a 40-mile route. This ride's later start increases the chances of that everyone riding in one of the days' group rides can celebrate a post-ride meal together at Mr Smith's Pub, across the street from Georgetown Water Park, and where may of us walk our bikes inside and get lunch. And beer of course. Or just beer. Predictions are for a hot and sunny Saturday, so fill up your water bottles and lather on the sun screen for a really nice ride with us!

2019-10-26 09:00:00 2019-10-26 09:00:00 America/New_York Rockville Wootton Ride In its 7th 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 safety conscious, so you are expected to follow 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. The ride will leave promptly at the designated time. Please sign up online by clicking the green button at the top left at the club website. Come join us and enjoy the ride. Please bring your own cue sheet. Thomas S. Wootton High School (TWHS)

This ride's later start increases the chances that everyone riding in one of the days' group rides arrive back at teh ride start at around the same time and so can then celebrate a post-ride meal together at Mr Smith's Pub, across the street from Georgetown Water Park, and where may of us walk our bikes inside and get lunch.

The 27 mile route starts on Capitol Crescent Trail and will meander in and around Rock Creek Park.  To minimize our carbon footprint, please print your selected cue sheet and/or download a GPX file onto your bike computer.
