I'm also in for about 60 miles to the Seneca T at a more moderate but sustained pace (16-18 mph average), but last weekend at total 200 the heat really did a number on me, so I'm not really looking to be out there when the temperatures start climbing, so I'll probably leave no later than 6:30 from Capitol Hill.
I'll be in GT at 7:30. I'm going to turn around at the T though. I haven't ridden long in awhile now.
I'll also meet you in Georgetown. I'm doing 18 repeats on the MacArthur/Falls hill to simulate the Tourmalet.
Nic - Want some company on your earlier, slower ride? Georgetown would be easier for me to get to than Capitol Hill, so let me know what time you plan to roll through (and where), and I'll meet you there.
Company would be great. I'll leave the Hill around 6:30 and roll through Gtown around 6:45 for anyone that wants to join.
Good strong group out there today. Just the kind of ride I was looking for. Heading out of town soon so see you all in 4 weeks.
Yeah, and good call on taking the shaded back roads this go-round.
what time did you guys pass by Gtown? I was there at 7.30am, corner M & Wisconsin but did'nt see anyone?
Not exactly sure, but it was 7:35 maybe? There were 5-6 of us waiting in the parking lot right behind the bank (immediately on the right as you start to head up wisconsin), then another handful of people rolled by from capitol hill.
You weren't waiting there today (Sun) were you? If so, that was the problem.
Otherwise, I'm not sure how we missed you. The group usually waits behind the bank at Wisconsin and M. Hopefully we'll find you next week.
Who's in town and up for putting in a few early miles on Saturday-- maybe rolling out to the T at around 6:30a?
Sounds like a good T ride plan... I am in. Corner of Wisconsin and M st at 06:30 AM...?
The start time is from Capitol Hill and we roll through G-town about 15 minutes after the start time.. so starting at 6:30a will put us in G-town at 6:45 ish.
Great...see you there
WHere in Cap Hill are we meeting nowadays.
Its not at the DD anymore. Its across the street of the Eastern Market metro, right?
The Cap Hill meeting spot is across the street from DD and Metro @ 8th and Penn Ave SE.
So so early but I'll be there (Gtown)
Too early is better than too hot
C U in Gtown
Looks like perfect weather as well- see you all out there.
