2019-04-25 18:00:00 2019-04-25 18:00:00 America/New_York Belle Haven Blast This long-running and sociable training ride has a bit of everything. A relatively flat first half gives way to nearly unrelenting hills in the second half.  The ride will focus on team building techniques with members riding together in pace lines. Riders will stop in case of mishaps or mechanicals. Ride leaders rotate in the pace line working to keep the team riding as a single unit and may establish or adjust speed limits for flat terrain. Rides will generally be broken into two groups, an A and a B/BB, depending on turnout. The A group will be limited to those who have demonstrated that they know the route and have the necessary fitness and group riding skills. The B/BB group will focus on developing fitness and group riding skills.   Both groups will ride together until the Fort Hunt Park entrance, then separate into two groups going into the park. If needed, each group will stop and regroup with its own members at the top of Rebecca Drive. We'll have a post-ride outing on the last Thursday of the month, so bring a change of clothes.  Belle Haven Picnic Area (BEL)
