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)

Location:Silver Spring, MD
2019-05-29 09:15:00 2019-05-29 09:15:00 America/New_York Wednesday Lunch Ride (Slapfish) Note the earlier start time of 9:15 for Wednesday 5/29, to minimize the portion of the ride when it is in the 90s.  We will ride a new route (mix of paved bike trails and roads) to a new place for lunch.  From VMP we will ride a loop around Rockville of about 22 miles to lunch at Slap Fish in North Bethesda.  After lunch, it will be a short ride of only about 3 miles back to VMP.  The trails and a few hills will slow our average C pace for the whole ride to 10-11 miles per hour (slower when uphill and faster when downhill or flat roads).  If you would to prefer to ride at your own pace (e.g., significantly slower or faster than leader), then please let me know and I will bring a printed cue sheet for you. Please remember to bring helmet, bike lock, and lunch money. Please arrive in time to be ready to roll at our departure time of 9:15.   Veirs Mill Park Recreation Center (VMP)

2019-05-31 09:00:00 2019-05-31 09:00:00 America/New_York Leave from VMP & join Friday Lunch Ride The plan for 5/31 is to bike to Parkway Deli for lunch. 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.
