Hains Point Tuesdays - Sunset Ride
POSTED: 5/20/13 9:46 PM

Hey, I'm an NTPer and we've been doing informal rides at Hains Point on most Tuesday evenings. I thought I reach out to the larger DC Tri community too. So join us if you can. Here's the info:

Location: Tennis Court Parking Lot (corner of Buckeye and Ohio Drive)

Pace: 16-18 mph

Clip-in Time: 6:30PM

Identifying Info: I ride a red Fuji road bike with a DC Tri bottle.

Forecasts for tomorrow is "Windy... isolated thunderstorms in the morning, becoming mostly sunny late."

I'll be doing the sunset ride tomorrow, rain or shine, preferably more shine than rain!

Oops..scratch that. I just realized that it'll probably be flooded down there. I'll ride elsewhere!

Bronxking -
You may want to give the Arlington Hills Ride a try some Tuesday night. A pretty difficult course and it's a no-drop ride. If you've never done it before, it's a pretty dope experience. Can be dangerous at times but helps newbies and old-timers alike acquire/maintain bike handling skills that are hard to obtain otherwise. Typically packs form and it's a constant hard effort. Check it out.

I can't make it tonight as I'm recovering from an injury.

Yes, I'm out there almost every Tuesday. I will post the day before to confirm. As far as distance, I just go with the flow. If no one shows up, I do 8 loops (roughly 25.6 miles). If folks come, we usually do about 5-6 loops.

All right. You know what they say, if you want to race in the heat, train in the heat. That said, sunset ride will be happening. Hope to see folks out!

Hey, I gotta bail. I forgot I signed up for the injury prevention clinic that's starting around the same time as the ride.

Hey, sorry, I gotta bail last minute. I found out about a film screening tonight about children and food politics followed by a Q&A with local anti-hunger, child food activists and I just gotta attend. See you next week for the ride! I promise I will actually come to the rides that I organize. =)

Hey, ride is on for tomorrow, rain or shine. I'll be driving there so if you have stuff you want to stash away during the ride, you can stash it in my car.
