Why stop at NoVa? Anyone down 'South' (i.e. from Old Town down to Lorton) looking for training partners on the weekend? I bike/run out of the Mt Vernon area, but often find myself down in the Lorton/Clifton on long rides (50-70mi).
Just noticed that the new NOVA group is meeting up in Tyson's Corner next week for a group ride. Not sure about you but I am not big fan of sitting in traffic so looks like we might have to start our own campaign to form a group out this way. I am on Fort Belvoir and like to ride the FFX County Parkway but am open to other routes you may be familiar with. Let me know what you think.
I usually do some version of the below roads. quiet country roads off of Ox Rd around Fountain Head Park. We may have passed each other at some point.
There's no reason the Fort Hunt Park loop can't be "Hains Point South." Heck, there's a gate, there's a bathroom, there's even National Park Service Police.
That's an idea. Anyone else interested? We could loop together a moderate ride and finish it off with a few fast crit style laps.
Anyone interested in a weekly ride? Below is a proposed route starting from Ft Hunt. We could finish it off with a number of high speed runs around the park.
