Ride will be C pace, averaging ~10-12 mph overall, faster on flat roads & slower when hills; see the Ride Class Table (https://www.potomacpedalers.org/content.aspx?page_id=22&club_id=495413&module_id=452207 ) for more info on ride classes and average speeds.
**Ride Rules:

According to the CDC, you're not considered fully vaccinated until it's been at least two weeks since your second dose of a two-dose series like Pfizer's or Moderna's vaccine, or it's been two weeks since you received a single-dose vaccine like Johnson & Johnson (aka Janssen). It needs to also have been at least 2 weeks since you received your booster.
• Registering for ride required at least by the day before ride & participation is limited to first 12 people.
• Helmets are required.

There is a 22ish loop north of Taneytown OR a shorter 13ish loop north of Taneytown, before returning to the same Sheetz for a second rest stop. Then we head back to Utica.

For Covid vaccinated riders, a weekly ride primarily through the rolling neighborhoods of Bethesda and Potomac. Usually, non-holidays, 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.

For July 4 a RidewithGPS files of a 35ish and 60ish mile route are posted below. This year we will have a 36 and 62 mile option. (If it is unduly hot, the long ride may be cut to 50ish.)

No Drop Ride with regroup at W. Offutt Rd after Mt. Nebo Rollers and a second regroup before the right hand turn onto Whites Ferry Rd after Elmer School False Flats so we can all finish together. I think this ride would be suitable for B riders as well due to the regroups.
