2019-08-27 10:00:00 2019-08-27 10:00:00 America/New_York Tuesday Lunch Ride (Olney Ale House) We will start at Dewey Park (0.6 miles North of Veirs Mill Park) and ride a ~12 mile route to the Olney Ale House, including a portion of the Matthew Henson Trail, a portion of the ICC trail, and several residential roads.  This is a relatively easy route with fewer hills (per Google Maps less than 500’ climb to lunch) than our usual Tuesday/Wednesday Lunch Ride.  The return will be a shorter ~10 mile route that includes residential roads and more paved bike trails.  Menu and other info for the Olney Ale House is available at:  http://olneyalehouse.com/. The trails will slow our C pace to an average of about 10 mph for the whole ride (slower when uphill and faster when downhill or flat roads).  This is a social ride where we try to stick together. However, if you would to prefer to ride at your own pace, then please let me know and I will bring a printed cue sheet for you. Please remember to bring helmet, bike lock, and lunch money. Please arrive in time to be ready to roll at our departure time of 10:00.  Note different start location of Dewey Park (parking lot at Veirs Mill Park is being repaved).  Dewey Park has two parking lots, with both having signs indicating “Dewey Park 11720”.  We will meet at the northern of the 2 parking lots, the one next to the children’s playground equipment, not the parking lot next to the soccer field.    Feel free to use the “Sign Up For This Ride” button above, but at the start of the ride you will still be required to sign the waiver and provide emergency contact info. - Other Start Location MD
