POSTED: 7/17/12 7:41 PM

General Plan

  • Meet at 0745 (AM) @ Spelunker's back parking lot at 116 South Street, Front Royal, VA, plan for a 0800 (AM) clip in
  • Park in the back and along Pine Street (esp. if you plan to do a long ride after 1100 AM to not take up their spaces)
  • If you need to go to the bathroom prior to the start, stop (on your way) at BK or McD's before the 0745 AM meet up at Spelunker's.
  • Distance: varies (48mi to Elkwallow & back [my tentative plan], 65mi to Thorton Gap & back, or beyond - Ref: http://connect.garmin.com/activity/192532355) + run after
  • Details including elevation profile, http://bikewashington.org/routes/skyline/index.htm, click on Northern Section, bottom right, for more info

I believe Jorlie and Ty each have 1 Shen pass which is good for 4 entries. Anyone else have one? If I recall corectly, it's $30 for a annual pass (good for 4 adults per visit).

It looks like We'll have a good size group, so the more that can park on Pine Street, the better.

Post here if you need to coordinate a ride. Unfortunately, I won't be headed back to Arlington after so I may not be very helpful to anyone needing a ride.

I'd love to tag along if anyone has space in their car and is leaving from the District.

Nice post. I vote for Brady to replace the current communications director.

See you Saturday.

Hi Guys,

I need a ride for this. Anyone have space for a bike and skinny guy to get west with them? :)

I'm willing to pay for part gas and a free meal before and after our ride.

Let me know!

I'm in if there is a group looking to do the full 64. I can offer a ride for 1 other from NW DC.

I'm tentatively in plus 1. Where can I pickup a park pass before going? Does REI still sell park passes?

See you all out there tomorrow at Spelunker's back parking lot at (116 South Street, Front Royal, VA), 0745 AM. We can work out the details there on who has park pass. I may end up getting one too.

Looks like we we should have 10+ (depending who the rain will keep in bed). Realize the weather is looking like a "few showers" moving out for the first few hours, but at least it should be a nice change from the 100 degree temps, with it being around 70 for the full ride. My plan is to turn back at Elkwallow and do a 75 min run once back to the car. I'm guessing that most will finish up around 12:30 - 1 for lunch at Spelunkers.

Hey everyone. Its 7:15am and we're about 45 minutes away.

We'll be there at 8 and would ideally like to clip in with everyone!

Cool?
