We hope that you can join us for the BBQ immediately following the Training Tri this Saturday at Hains Point.
The club will be providing burgers, veggie burgers, chips and drinks. If you are planning to attend, please bring something to share with the group. Those with last names ending in A-I bring a side dish (no chips please....we have tons left over from the Columbia Brick-Nic!), J-R bring a dessert, and S-Z bring drinks (sports drinks, water or soda).
My last name 'begins' with a J... should I bring side dish or dessert?
I think that the post is pretty clear. If your name begins with a "J", you should bring both :)
Oops....not quite awake yet :) The post has been revised!
any ideas on a bike-friendly side dish? I'm riding in (in part due to race for the cure) thoughts on what travels well in a backpack (and can sit in the backpack for a few hours) are appreciated!
Don't forget the Susan B Koman Race for the cure is Saturday morning at 8am.......traffic may be a mess, and roads blocked off hindering access to HP.
Orange slices would probably travel well. Slice 'em up, put into Ziploc bags, toss the Ziplocs in a backpack. Or hummus and sliced veggies?
very good ideas, thanks... if I go with oranges I can be the soccer mom of the day (was that you after our cambridge brick?). LoL
I'll throw some ice in a ziplock to keep whatever chilled... and my fingers crossed that someone will have a cooler I can throw the stuff in when I arrive.
Some healthy stuff (veggies, salads, fruit, juice) may also be appreciated by those supposedly ( :) ) into good nutrition.
I'm happy to bring a cooler - it's of moderate size though, so hopefully we'll get a few more.
-Daniel (W) ... I'll bring some liquids too :)
I hear twinkies can survive anything.
I call pasta salad! Do I have to make enough for 100 people? not sure that'll fit in my backpack...
i've never been to hains point...coming from mt pleasant/columbia heights anyone have a quick and easy way to get there on my bici? thanks!
Is beer a sports drink???????
best drink there is.. but if you bring it bring some cups so that its on the down low.
not sure if the park allows it, but i wouldnt be flagrant with an open container. ;)
Col Hts to Hains: Well, I'd ride to Woodley Park, down into Rock Creek bike trail, get out at Gtown, ride river trail down to Lincoln Mem, over Tidal Basin bridge, then an immediate right into riverside road directly into Hains. Make right at first stop sign, another right at second stop sign. When you get to golf course parking lot on your right, you're at the race transition area.
If you're near to Rock Creek, the trail is definitely the way to go, although a couple days ago it was closed off near the zoo and I'm not sure why.
You can also just take 15th street down all the way past the Mall, until it ends at the Tidal Basin and you have to turn left onto Maine Ave. Then take the next right onto East Basin Drive and take the first left (you'll see a sign for HP golf and tennis). You won't be able to miss us!
thanks for route tips. going with rock creek right behind my house!
