I'm not sure how well riding to p-ville the back way suits my needs. I"m better off with the long straightaway of River Rd. I'm trying to get as much aero time as possible.
I'd be up for leaving at 7 or 8. In fact, 8 sounds pretty sweet.
TJ, Steve and I might head out to Davidsonville to ride but I'm not sure at this point. Will keep you posted.
Travis, if you head out to D-ville, there are some good rides that start from the park n ride on rte. 424 (just off of rte. 50)

I've done quite a few of them and there is not much traffic out there.
Definitely good cycling out that way. I'm pretty familiar with the area.
Keep me posted... as it's a 80 mile + day (T, you're talking me into 100...), I may be inclined to ride out from home as opposed to drive, then ride... then drive again. Know what I mean?
But... I do like riding out there.
I like the idea of going out local (the standard route) starting at 8am from Cap Hill- but I'll be doing a shorter ride like Great Falls or the T at most. I don't mind coming back solo so hopefully I'll catch you on the way out.
I'm in with you Eric...lots to do so if you don't mind pulling me around until Great Falls...I will probably go out to the T at least though.
Looking to at least GFalls maybe the T...I'll see you in Gtown around 8:20ish?

Is anyone doing the WABA 50 states ride tomorrow? I don't know anyone going - it' always good to have a friendly face. It should be a nice break from the usual river road action.....
I'm in for great falls and back.
I think I am in for that, but I am not going to hammer as hard as you all do. I am looking for MAX aero time also, and at least 60-70 miles this week.
Is the time still a 7am depart time from the Hill??
I'm in too, but not looking to hammer.... Chad???
I think I heard 8am start time from the hill, and 8:30 through G-town.
8am start time it is....staying dark too early and the temps aren't as hot and not many are going as long...
Travis, what's the plan? You doing Davidsonville or whatever?
I'm meeting Steve and TJ at G-town at 8:00am so we can get home at a decent time. We're going to Poolesville and beyond to get in 100 miles.
You're free to join us but "not hammering" has different definitions when people are riding 40 vs. 100 miles. Chances are you'll want to go faster than me out MacArthur Blvd. so having a couple of groups rolling tomorrow is probably fine.
Are you meeting on the Hill??
I'm leaving the hill, likely alone, at 7:30 and then meeting up at Wisco and M at 8:00. I'll probably leave my house at 7:30 and will roll past 8th and Penn to see if anyone is there.
Let me know if you'll be there and I'll look for you.
I will be leaving from the Arlington Annex next to the Pentagon. Will be at G-Ton at or before 8am. See you out there.
Thanks to Doctor Kara and Mark Z for spurring me along in spots. Ended with 100 clicks, first full century since last fall, slow but I'll take it.
Is there a ride this Saturday, fast or not so fast?
