There will be a Saturday ride out of Granville's Wildwood Park beginning at 9:00am and going to Bladensburg via a.....NEW route!!!! As an added bonus, Recumbent Dude is going to be there, along with Mitch O, Kendaites, Flyin Tuna, Amanda and probably lots of others. Will have maps but unsure of exact miles for now but will post later. The unofficial ride leader is Amanda which means nothing but it was her idea for the route so she is the leader. Upon reaching Bladensburg, you can eat pancakes, stop at the gas station or market or just keep going. UPDATE: The Steve Oxley has agreed to show for the ride. Yes, it required payment of appearance money but it will be worth it. I have made a master map with a route that is all new. Yes, the traditional route out of Granville but it gets different in a hurry, giving us 32 miles to Bladensburg and a total of 65-70. I trudge to the library on Friday to make map copies. These will be 11 x 17 so even Kenda Janet can read it. One important note. There is no food stop between Granville and B-burg so bring fluids and snack.
Update #2: Grand Poobah and Jeff S, aka Little Diesel, will also be at the ride. Enormous star power all coming, out of respect and admiration for ride leader A. Orr.
Update #3: Junior Muscle Dude is coming. Please note this is open to everyone, not just the usual suspects and a variety of speeds will be represented. Come on out and do the 50 mile option to Martinsburg or the 65 to Bladensburg. Lots of opportunity to extend the ride too out of Bladensburg.
Update #5: Rick Miller will meet us out on the road and while we snack or eat in Bladensburg he is going to do free bike tune-ups!!!!
