2019-05-26 09:00:00 2019-05-26 09:00:00 America/New_York The Nowhere Ride My "normal" ride leader buddies are otherwise engaged today. So, I'm posting a oldie but goodie ride. Some of you may not even need a cue sheet for this ride, but I'll bring a few anyway. We loop back on ourselves twice, so it's easy to short cut the ride should you want to. One rest stop at my favorite Highs in Lisbon.  Please sign in online or in person at the ride start. We going back to requiring you to sign in. Only a B leader is listed, but other levels are welcome if you don't mind not having "your pace" leader Ride will not go in rain or seriously wet roads. Check the website if the weather is iffy.

2019-05-26 09:00:00 2019-05-26 09:00:00 America/New_York Tour de Purcellville (mini) Its the annual Tour de Purcellville.  This is a shorter version of the Purcellville ride.  Starting from White's Ferry, we'll cross the Potomac river ($2 each way).  From there we'll ride into Leesburg and pick up the WO&D path out to Purcellville.  We'll do a loop through this historical town and ride back the same way.  The terrain is generally easy, and shaded.  A few minor inclines but no big hills to speak of.  Cue sheet is attached. Arrive by 8:45 so we can get started promptly at 9. Ride Leader Bill Resnicow     White's Ferry (WIF)

2019-05-27 09:00:00 2019-05-27 09:00:00 America/New_York Utica Park to Taneyown via Union Bridge Join us for a rolling ride up to Taneytown via Union Bridge. There are no serious climbs, but there are a number of shorter ups & downs. I think it's flatter on the way home, and hopefully a tail wind too (but I am usually wrong about that).

Also, you will sign in either online or in person at the ride start. We are going back to enforcing that practice. Ride will no go in the rain or seriously wet roads.

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.

2019-05-30 18:00:00 2019-05-30 18:00:00 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)

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 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.
