This awesome ride is back in action the first Saturday of the month. It’s still a ride from DC out to the parks and to the leafy green streets of Montgomery Co - no car needed, with some new added perks since cycling is only as enjoyable as the coffee and tailgating. As always, the route features loops with lots of rolling hills and a few lung-inhaling climbs. This month includes Mountain Gate and Berryville Road and traverses several urban neighborhoods on well-established bicycle corridors and through some quiet back roads around Potomac. 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 10:00 AM ride start to enjoy coffee and a pastry and then join us for a post-ride tailgate. Start: Open City Coffee House, 2331 Calvert St NW, Washington, DC End: Don Juan‘s, 1660 Lamont St NW, Washington, DC 64-mile loop: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/46050420 38-mile loop: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/46061435 Contacts: Matt Birnbaum noshbygosh@icloud.com 202-895-0979 Lee Goldberg lmgoldberg@gmail.com 240-393-7328 Matt Gilchrist gilchristm@protonmail.com 360-751-4921

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.

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 **See Ride Requirements below**. A/B 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 and attacks up front, more casual riding off the back and very little vehicular traffic throughout. NOTE: There is an optional, hillier finish to the last couple miles that usually arrives at the start/finish regroup around the same time as the flatter finish group. If you‘re with the group and feel like a little climbing to end your ride, just follow. If not, keep to the posted route and everyone will finish at the same place. 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. RIDE REQUIREMENTS ********************** - Helmet - Foot Retention (clipless pedals) - Drop Bar Road Bike (highly recommended) - Ability to hold 18mph minimum riding in a group OR be willing to potentially ride alone

The Usual Monday Ride from Glen Echo. 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 tops of any significant climbs. When there is interest and on Federal Holidays, a longer option is usually available. Coffee shop and socializing near end of the ride. On holidays a RidewithGPS file of a 35ish and 60ish mile route will be posted here. Ride Leaders: Warren Farb (wfarb@mac.com) and Janice Stoodley (janice.stoodley1@gmail.com)

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. Rides typically are 25 to 30 miles and ascent will be between 1,000’ and 2,200’, depending on the route. All routes are in low-traffic, moderately hilly residential areas. 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.

I will bring some cue sheets with me.
