  1. Saturday ”“ Supported and Sagged Group Ride/ Brick Workout @ Whites Ferry, Dickerson MD at 8 AM

This is a beautiful place for a ride and then of course the run.   The run is on the W&OD tow path farther out than most of you have likely ever been.   Super gorgeous and worth the trip.   And yes, there is a real ferry there. The food joint on the MD side of the ferry is supposed to be a secret (“secret”) hang out for retired redskins to watch games.   Cool Joint.   Cool people.

FYI – Leadership for this ride may change, we’ve not confirmed everyone just yet.

  • AWOL: Kris Pachla
  • Ride Leader: Miro Lehky, Dexter Braithwaite
  • Sag Drivers: Linda Dunn, Misha

Ride Notes:   Workout requirements for this weekend are: Placid folks should be  ride for 3.5 hours followed by a 1 hour run.   ALL of you are welcome to run for 10-15 minutes.   We will use the 17, 20, 34 and 42 mile cue sheets. For the speedy, or those not running ”“ you can do the 42 and the 17 ”“ but that’s where it ends for sagging.  You pick the mileage commiserate with your ability to finish in 3.5 hours.

  • IF YOU WOULD LIKE AN ESCORT FOR THE 17, 20, or the 34”“ email me please.   We have two ride leaders that are there to teach.   This goes for stronger riders too ”“ if you are faster and go longer but still need help with shifting, etc. ”“ please email me and I’ll make pre introductions!
