2019-09-20 18:10:00 2019-09-20 18:10:00 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)

2019-09-21 08:00:00 2019-09-21 08:00:00 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)
2019-09-21 13:00:00 2019-09-21 13:00:00 America/New_York 2019 BRC Saturday "Sugar High" Rides Make it a weekend to remember! Join us for one of two PPTC group rides (12.5 miles, CC/C/D and 30 miles, AA/ABB/B/CC/C/D), featuring the local sites, including the Antietam National Battlefield and Nutter's Ice Cream. (Did somebody say ice cream?) Want even more sugar? The rides end at Antietam Creek Vineyard (right inside the park). Enjoy wine tasting and live bluegrass music. If you want to purchase wine, the vineyard will delivery it for free to your local  BRC/Shepherdstown address (e.g., hotel, B&B, campground, RV, etc.) Both rides are standard PPTC group rides. All are welcome to participate. That said, to best enjoy the Antietam National Battlefield and Antietam Creek Vineyard, we must cap registration at 200 riders. Again, while there is NO CHARGE for these two amazing 2019 BRC Saturday "sugar high" rides, you must register. Please contact Stephen Krill with any questions. - Other Start Location WV

2019-09-26 12:30:00 2019-09-26 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
Location:Laytonsville, MD
2019-09-26 17:45:00 2019-09-26 17:45:00 America/New_York Thursday Night Trainer This is generally a fast paced cooperative training ride through the Laytonsville area and Patuxent River valley. Same route as in previous years. The ride leader will make no attempt to keep the group together for the ride, so make sure you have a cue sheet and know where you are going. Ride leader will insist on single file riding until the top of Howard Chapel Rd. because of the traffic and narrow roads. No go in rain or on wet roads. Please park in the far corner of the parking lot near the donation bins. Layton Village Shopping Center (LAV)

2019-09-28 08:00:00 2019-09-28 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.
