Less Info
Former Bike Rack DC Beginner ride, it has survived the closing of BRDC, and the pandemic, and morphed into a ride that offers something for everyone. A/B/C groups usually form after the first attack following a social start. Regroup at the turnaround and again at the finish. If you’re feeling racy you can race. If you don’t have legs you can likely fall in with another group and meet up at the turnaround point (Viers Mill Park). Expect pace lines, breakaways and tactics up front, but very little vehicular traffic throughout. While it can get spicy, this is ultimately a social ride and all are welcome to enjoy post-ride refreshments and revelry at Don Juan‘s in Mount Pleasant, just a short climb past the finish.

Start: Blue Bottle Coffee (1046 Potomac St NW, Washington, DC 20007) We will launch at 10am! Riders are encouraged to show up early to socialize and support local business :) End: Founding Farmers Fishers & Bakers (Harbour at The Georgetown Waterfront, 3000 K St NW, The Washington, Washington, DC 20007) 65-mile loop out of Georgetown. https://ridewithgps.com/routes/45700121 43-mile loop out of Georgetown. https://ridewithgps.com/routes/45708833 This awesome ride is back in action in 2024. It’s still the Real Ride from the Real City but with some new added perks since cycling is only as enjoyable as the coffee and tailgating. This March 2024 ride doubles as a birthday celebration for Anne. Rumor has it there will be cupcakes. As always, the route features two rest stops with lots of rolling hills and a few lung-inhaling climbs. This month includes an optional Morman Hill out-and-back. We will traverse several urban neighborhoods on well-established bicycle corridors and through some quiet back roads around Potomac. We of course will get to enjoy Rock Creek Park as we return to DC along Beach Drive at the end. While we look forward to the joys of spinning harmoniously and consciously in pace lines, we are recreational riders and not racers, so we’re prioritizing socializing before and after the ride itself. We encourage all to arrive early before the 9:30 AM ride start to enjoy coffee and a pastry at Blue Bottle Coffee. At the finish line later in the afternoon, please stay and celebrate with us at a post-ride tailgate.

When there is interest and on Federal Holidays, a longer option is usually available. Coffee shop and socializing near end of the ride.

Each week will have a uniquely assigned Ride with GPS route link posted at least two days before the ride. All riders are expected to download the Ride with GPS route onto their devices or have printed out a cue sheet in case they decide to separate from the group for whatever reason. The group is expected to ride together at the group leader’s C pace, which will be 11 to 12 mph on average.

Those wishing to ride at an average pace of greater than 12 mph usually will have the opportunity to form a CC-level ride group at the start and depart a few minutes early with a ride leader from among their ranks. Each ride will have a rest/restroom stop midway and an optional lunch stop near the end. This is a recurring ride. ALL RIDERS MUST REGISTER EACH WEEK. For new riders, emergency-contact information is collected at the ride start. (GLE 7D)
