*NOTE CHANGE FROM CULPEPPER TO CARROL MANOR ELEMENTARY FOR THE MOM AND LP RIDE ”“ 10:00 AM START (yes, 10:00 AM).   MoM and Lake Placid folks can also come to Davidsonville, of course.   You don’t have to ride “Ice Cream Social” to do well at your events.   Its hard climbing, and you may benefit from it ”“but its certainly not required to finish either race.   But if you go to Carroll Manor Elementary and ride “Ice Cream Social” ”“ you are warned of the difficulty and there will be no whining.   There will be no sag drivers, workout leaders, etc.   You will be 100% self sufficient.

* For the Davidsonville Ride – anyone who’d like to be in the “Back of pack” support groups for the workouts this weekend, let me know.   We have some people organizing and I’d be happy to get you in touch.   We’ll also hook up ride/run leaders to look out for you.   Email me!

  1. Saturday Group Run ”“ 8:00 AM from Columbia Island Marina

Beautiful Potomac side trail run (paved, it is the mount Vernon trail).     Flat as we can find without going to a track or Haines point!   Pay attention to the directions on this one too ”“ can be tricky.   Or it can be easy!   READ THE LOCATION NOTES ON OUR WEBSITE!   Accurate Google map LINK is “in the description” ”“ not what is displayed on the screen (which is National Airport).

  1. Sunday “Non Ice Cream Social but so not stupid hills” Group Ride ”“ 8:00 AM Davidsonville Park and Ride

(NOTE THE TEXT IN THE DIRECTIONS FOR THIS LOCATION ON OUR WEBSITE) ”“ or you will probably end up in a farmer’s field.

 This ride is excellent for the beginner with a few shorter routes.   There are some challenging hills in places, but in general this is fun and faster ride (faster than most).   The short route is 23 miles.   But, any turn around point for an “out and back” can obviously shorten that if needed!

 What:

Where:

When:

  • Time: Sunday 8:00 AM.

Scoop:  

  • Ride Distances: 23, 28, 43, 51 (for Lake Placid People with 80, you will do the 51 and 28. The 51 is actually the 23 and 28 ”“ so you’d go 23, 28, 28.   The 51 cue sheet is a combo of the 23 and 28.
  • Guided Ride:   Yes
  • Link to cue: https://members.triteamz.com/files/?dir=%2FCue%2BSheets%2FThis%2BWeekend%2527s%2BUpdated%2BCue%2BSheet
