Glen Echo Park - lower parking lot, turn off MacArthur Blvd onto Oxford Street
10:00 AM
More Info
Less Info
The ride of 25 to 30 miles starts from the lower parking lot at Glen Echo Amusement Park on MacArthur Boulevard. Most weeks, it takes one of three routes that wander to a rest stop (with comfort facilities) usually in Potomac and one of four routes back. These routes, each with a number of variations, loop on shady residential streets and have more than 1,000 feet of climbing. Occasionally, the route instead will find its way over to Beach Drive. It is a social no-drop ride with regrouping as needed. Optional lunch 1.5 miles from the end at MacArthur Plaza.

NOTE: This is a recurring ride. ALL RIDERS MUST REGISTER EACH WEEK. For new riders, emergency-contact information is collected at ride start. Since the ride changes each week, all riders on the Glen Echo ride distribution list get a weekly email with the cue sheet and the Ride with GPS link. (GLE 6T1)

Glen Echo Park lower parking lot off of Oxford St
10:00 AM
More Info
Less Info
For Covid vaccinated riders, a weekly ride primarily through the rolling neighborhoods of Bethesda and Potomac. Usually, the exact route is at the whim of the ride leaders, so there are no cues and the distance varies. The group stops to regroup at all decision points and at the ends of any significant climbs. When there is interest, a longer option is often available (with a rest stop.)

Coffee shop and socializing near end of the ride.

On holiday's a RidewithGPS file of a 35ish and 60ish mile route will be posted here.
