    Default DC area ride 1/16?

    I have to be in town for work for a few days. Planning on staying Saturday and doing a ride in VA or MD for a change of scenery. Anyone interested in meeting up? Weather looks OK for Saturday. Thinking in the 60-70 mile range.

    Put me down for a very soft maybe.
    I definitely don't have 70 miles in my legs these days nor the time for same, but depending on how your route/timing shakes out maybe I can jump on for a portion.

    C'mon son! The one weekend you come down to my neck, and we're slated to head up Philly for a visit to the old homestead.

    put me down for a rain check. no pun intended.

    Depending on the route you all want to do... I'm planning to ride out towards Lovettsville Saturday for a weekend stay and Scott's gravel ride on Monday. If the route gets me not far from there I'd be game.

    How far south do we have to head for it not to be snowing?

    I see am light rain and a high of 49 on weather.com, but this time of year anything can happen.

    We'd have to go toooo far south. Cold wet and hypothermic been there done that. We are on the bubble. NAHTNOJ's call for ride start / etc. I'm up for whatever.

    Local riding is typical mix of urban and nice backroads. It's hilly.

    I'm in your capable hands. Don't really know the good routes around here. I'll most likely be staying in Arlington Friday night.

    Cool. No cars! Meet in front of Georgetown Pro Shop at 9 am and we will go from there. Plan on riding a bit of gravel and talking pace. Ride time will be about 3 hrs. lots of hills.

    Here is a rough outline of the route. Coffee in Bethesda or whatever looks good.

    We do not discriminate. All comers. The route is the route. We depart Georgetown Pro Shop at 9:10 sharp.

    *Plain old 23/23c road tires will be fine on the dirt section. Take a Zanax.

    Nice day for it.
