Location:Washington, DC
2020-03-08 10:00:00 2020-03-08 10:00:00 America/New_York Georgetown Tailgate Ride Predictions are for a nice winter day for a group ride! 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 ride along many quiet roads blended with some riding along Rock Creek Trail, traversing neighborhoods in DC and Montgomery County.  This is a nice social group ride wtih two rest stops in Glen Echo Park and Rock Creek Park. There is also is another Georgetown group of riders that will be traveling at faster speeds and longer distances (with less socializing) and starting out earlier in the day but with everyone aiming to finish at around the same time.  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. 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. Note: The Club's website has a glitch so cannot attach the correct cue sheet.

Location:Germantown, MD
2020-03-22 10:00:00 2020-03-22 10:00:00 America/New_York The Winter Ride Series Welcome back to a PPTC tradition, the Winter Ride.  We have been going strong for more than a decade.  The series runs from December through March.  This is a multi-class ride, with a variety of lengths to suit your preference on any given Sunday.  We have multiple ride leaders (see below) and can have up to 50 riders on a good day, so you are very likely to find someone riding your pace and distance. 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 Sunday to see if the ride has been canceled on a particular day. 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.   Note: The PPTC site limits the number of ride distance options to 4.  So, the fifth option, the 32 mile route is here:  https://ridewithgps.com/routes/6623422 Ask Carol for cue sheets.
