Unfortunately, I can’t make the Sat ride but I managed to grab a few people to join me Sunday. I thought I could make a 72 mile ride with just a few miles on the busy road of 340. But found out some of those ‘roads’ become dirt and gravel.
It looks like the typical DC Tri meeting place is http://www.spelunkerscustard.com/
in Front Royal about 1/2 mile from the park entrance. Park in the back and on the side street so we don't take up all their parking but there's plenty of spots. Makes for a fantastic frozen custard, shake, ice cream place reward after the ride (copied from me).
We'll meet there at 8am. They aren't open then but we can go to McD's a couple blocks away for bathrooms.
Route is ~83 miles and can be seen at http://tinyurl.com/3ckstyk
Basics: 1st half is Skyline, 2nd is in the Massanutten ridge road, Fort Valley. I think it'll be about 10-15 deg cooler out there compared to DC.
- Elk Wallow wayside @ 24 mi

Post or email me if you're interested.
