If you’re in town, head over to the team time trial. If you’re scared of riding, head to the team time trial. If you don’t know what a time trial is, head to the team time trial. You won’t regret it.

8:00 AM start (7:00 AM arrive) at Prince William Forest.

 

When: Saturday, 8:00 AM starts the festivities. Arrive before 7:00 AM”¦ pretend this is a normal ride and we are rolling at 8. But the reality is that we will check in as many people as we can down in the lower lot from 7 to 7:30. Then we all roll out of parking lot at 7:30 AM for a 2.6 mile warm up to get to the start line.  The actual time trial starts at 8:00 AM from the start location (look at the Google map). It’s easy, you can’t get lost, we’ll all be going in the same direction.

Directions:   Take I-95 South (32 miles south of Washington, D.C.). Enter Triangle, Virginia near the Quantico Marine Base. Take rte 619 West (exit 150).   The park entrance is less than 1/4 mile on the right hand side of route 619 West.

Parking: LOOK AT THE GOOGLE MAP! We will park in the lot at the END of Telegraph Road, PAST the Visitors Center.  When you enter the park, you will go through the entrance gate/building. There will be nobody there.  Drive STRAIGHT until you see a round about with the visitor center.  The visitor center is noted on the map. Just to the right of the visitor center is a road that continues straight. Drive STRAIGHT down this road for .25-.5 miles to the pavilion/grass field at the bottom. Park there.  The parking area is noted on the map. LOOK AT IT PLEASE.  Each car that comes to the park must pay $5 – it’s to help support the park, and it’s important that we do it. However, the Visitors Center (where you pay) will not open until 9:00 (after we’ve rolled out), so please make sure you pay the $5 before you leave.  CARPOOL!
