If anyone is driving from the city (or close enough for me to bike to) and has an extra seat/rack spot I’d love to join! Else I will be happy to get in on the usual Saturday morning ride from Georgetown.
Hi Folks. Can I join your on your ride if my pace is 11-12 mph? I’m a new triathlete looking for a 40 mile ride once a week. I usually go for a 26 miler on Tuesdays at Hainspoint, however, I need more hill training.
I can go for longer without a problem if necessary.
Hi Josh, anyone is welcome to join. Try to find someone that you can pair up with at the beginning and the group will usually wait for folks at the BP station in Potomac. It’s good to be familiar with the route in case you lose the group, particularly when you go out to the T or further as folks may do variations (sometimes River while other times Glen out). There’s a list of maps here (please see Saturday Club Ride – BP 29 Mile Route and Saturday Club Ride – SenecaT 47 Mile Route):
Hello Saturday ride group! A few of us are doing the White’s Ferry route this Saturday (~80 miles) that goes from Georgetown to Poolesville to White’s Ferry (on the Potomac) – across the river and into Leesburg, VA. We’ll pick up the WO&D trail in Leesburg and ride back to Arlington/DC back on the trail (~40 miles). There will be a stop for tacos along the way – so bring money if you’re coming! We’ll roll out of Georgetown at 7am to get an early start. -Tina.
