2019-08-03 08:00:00 2019-08-03 08:00:00 America/New_York Zap the Gap This is a rolling ride with a few big climbs. From Marshall we'll go out through Hume (sorry for the repeat, those of you who just did this stretch with me on last weekend's ride) and over Chester Gap into Front Royal. Then we'll do some other stuff that I can't remember the details of, including the new-since-I-last-rode-this-route Morgan's Ford bridge. The cue sheet has 57-, 51-, and 47-mile versions for anyone who wants a slightly shorter ride, and anyone who wants more challenge can do a quick out and back on Skyline when we get to Front Royal. I'll be riding at a B pace. Faster riders welcome to come and self-lead. Right now the weather forecast looks OK but if the rain chances increase I'll post a cancellation decision by 6:30 Saturday morning.   Marshall Park & Ride (MAR)
