POSTED: 6/23/10 5:19 PM

Looking to ride to Sugarloaf MtN. from D&D in Georgetown on Saturday 6/26/2010 starting at 6am. Anyone is welcome to come. The pace will be 17-19mph however, I need the queue sheet before I attempt. Please help.

http://www.mapmyride.com/ride/united-states/dc/washington/882159873
92.67 miles 5-7 hours or more (Sugarloaf MTN ride)

http://www.mapmyride.com/ride/united-states/dc/washington/297367540
68.89 miles 4-5 hours or more (Poolesville)

http://www.mapmyride.com/ride/united-states/dc/washington/304852332
28.72 miles 2-3 hours (Great Falls)

These are the maps of the different rides that will be leaving from Dean & Deluca in Georgetown 6am Saturday morning. I personally will be doing the Poolesville loop but some will strive for the longer loop to Sugarloaf. The terrian is pretty hilly with lots of long rollers past Great Falls.

The longer ride will more than likely be really HOT by 10am so bring water/sports drinks and electrolytes to refuel with. Camelback probably recommended for the longer distances.

All routes head out the same way and the plan is to stay together until Great Falls were the short distance group will turn back. Pre-Great Falls pace 12-15mph. The pace will more than likely increase to 17-19mph average for the 70 and 93 mile rides.

All are welcome.
any questions hit me up. e.scott.fulton(at)gmail.com

Good luck out there, also another cue sheet that gets you out there and avoids some of the major roads listed in the other cue sheet can be found below - there are a few perfectly positioned country stores along the way (most cash only):

Just a couple of FYI's about the queue sheets above....I used the bikely ride Andy posted. It was great except some might want to be forewarned that there is a hill on Black Rock Road which made me want my mother....also at the end of Mt. Nebo where is turns into River the road is closed just before river (coming off Mt. Nebo) because they are reconstructing a couple of low bridges over a creekbed. Once can get across but it involves a little cyclocross move - dismounting and carrying your bike across walking on the ibeams that support the bridge...not hugely dangerous since it is not a super high bridge, but does require a little balancing.
