No worries dear–the A-team drops everyone like a stone so we all end up bringing in the rear!

Rolling in Lake Anna tomorrow but the Saturday ride has been good with about 3 of us the past couple weeks hahaha. Enjoy the nice weather!April 13, 2018 at 4:53 pm #18901loraheckParticipant
I’ll be rolling from Capitol Hill at 8:10am tomorrow morning if there are any other Capitol Hill folks planning to ride.April 13, 2018 at 5:20 pm #18902Connor WilliamsParticipant
Great, Lora. I’m planning on being there. See you then!April 14, 2018 at 11:37 pm #18929bcfrankParticipant
Great ride this morning everyone! That was like 30+ folks out there for the first warm Saturday of the year! Great turnout!
My apologies to the few of y’all who did the Mountain Gate side hill stretch with us and made the wrong turn with us. :/ One of these years I’ll remember the route correctly! But hey: there were definitely some VERY nice houses back in that cul-de-sac!!! I know we lost a few before the BP (an “Irish” jersey sticks in my head), we hope y’all had a great ride back and we hope to see you all again sometime!
Cheers (and ride safe)!

We’ll blame it on the new bike.April 18, 2018 at 11:06 pm #19174Adam StolzbergParticipant
Great ride last week everyone!
There will be a crew doing the weekly Sat ride again, 810/830, but I wanted to invite y’all to join me in riding Skyline Drive in Shenandoah National Park as it’s “Free Entrance Days in the National Parks“!
What: Ride out and back on Skyline Drive so pretty much, as far/long as you want. Take pictures and enjoy the views while getting in a fun, rewarding and challenging ride.
Where: Meet at Skyline High School, 151 Skyline Vista Dr, Front Royal, VA 22630
Plenty of free parking and some nearby trails for those that want to brick afterwards.
When: Clip in from the parking lot at 9am. NOAA currently says 49º at 9am and 55º at 1pm with very little wind.
Why: So many reasons like this but because it’s fun! ;-p
This forum serves as a good tool for carpooling. 😉
Cheers an see ya out there!

Im up for Skyline. How could i pass up Free entrance and Spelunkers eh? I could take two people plus their bikes. Gas is on me.

thank for posting. Can you tell me more about the terrain and also the distance (s)You thinking about going for ?April 20, 2018 at 11:33 am #19205Adam StolzbergParticipant
Hey Mo, Skyline is very hilly but you can handle it. I’m planning on doing about 50 miles, out to Elk Wallow Gap Wayside and back. I estimate this will take me a little over 3 hours as it’s about 5600 ft of gain.
Here’s more info on riding Skyline and here’s the elevation profile for the “Northern Section”…

I’m in for the top of Hogback mtn and back–44 mi round trip bout 3 hours.

Wow lol, you could have stretched the width of the pic so that it doesn’t look so steep … thank you so much for the info! I am def not a climber and know I need to get better at it, so this def should a good training for it.April 20, 2018 at 2:27 pm #19208bcfrankParticipant
Adam, next time put the elevation on a logarithmic scale. 😛April 27, 2018 at 9:29 am #19549timothy brainardParticipant
Are the morning rides still at 8:10 or have they moved to 7:10 yet.
