September 15 update:
This is it folks: the final DTB for 2021! Thanks to all who attended - and if you were at more than three of them please become a member of Potomac Pedalers! Thank you!

PROPER FRONT AND REAR LIGHTS REQUIRED for this ride - no exceptions! These lights much be used in a steady beam mode and not strobe in a group setting.

Because we will be returning in the dark (sunset is at 7:15pm and it gets very dark on Beach Drive in Rock Creek Park) there will be no pure rotating pacelines as we usually do. We may break into smaller groups if enough show up but we will ride with safety in mind and not speed.

There will be separate A, BB, B, and CC groups this week.

27 mile route (all groups)
This week's ride will have one last hurrah at Dawson's Market for those interested. Lights are necessary for this ride regardless, but this makes the point more clear as the roads aren't all silky smooth.
NOTE: by registering for the Downtown Breakaway you agree to the Waivers of Liability of Potomac Pedalers. To sign an online waiver (and provide required emergency contact info), click here. You need only fill out these forms ONCE for the entire DTB series!

NOTE: this ride is open to both Potomac Pedalers members and non-members. However, if you are a non-member and ride the DTB more than 3 times we ask that you please join the club to help cover our administrative costs and keep the ride going. Thank you!

No go if rain and thunderstorms are bearing down on us, if AQI is over 100, or if the heat index is patently unsafe - last minute announcements will be sent via the DTB email list. If you wish to be on the DTB email list, please drop Rudi Riet an email with the subject "Subscribe to DTB List."
