New Year's Ride 2021

After breakfast at the Vienna Inn, we did some parking lot practice before winding through back roads to get out of DC's suburbs. Near Oatlands, we found newly paved Lime Kiln Rd and wandered past horse estates to Middleburg, VA. After a coffee from Cuppa Giddy Up, we rode some dirt roads through Bull Run Valley and ending the ride at Manassas National Battlefield.

High Rock/South Mountain, Maryland Ride - Sat, Oct 10

High Rock/South Mountain, Maryland
Saturday, October 10th

How about an easy day ride to include the back roads of Carroll County, Eyler’s Valley, High Rock and South Mountain, with a brief cross into Loudon County on the return? Total distance will be in the 175 mile range (give or take), with rest/gas/food stops every 1 to 1 1/2hours. We will definitely stop to take in the gorgeous view of the valley from High Rock and maybe stop for coffee or ice cream down the road somewhere.

Dirt Riders Rinse Off in a River Crossing

Fourteen riders explored the unpaved/gravel roads on September 19, 2020 and had a ton of fun. We broke up into three groups and explored the areas west of Haymarket between Rt 55 and Snickersville Turnpike. The route has been selected using the VDOT Unpaved Roads web site.

One group missed a turn and found a water crossing. Check out the YouTube videos.
After hearing of the fun the one group had, several others went back to find the crossing and get wet.

Virtual Rally Campfire June 5 & 6 at 9:00 pm in Facebook Rooms

We can talk about anything and moan about the great rallies that goes canceled. We can talk about the Fort Valley ride on the June 14. It filled up so quickly that we had to add more spots.

Fourth Sunday Breakfast Ride

Henry, Daria, Arnab, and Bruce met in Clifton. The Clifton Cafe was serving crepes and espresso for carry-out. We wore our masks and kept our distance in the parking lot while we ate. We met two other riders who asked to join but said they needed to get gas first. I don't know where they went to get it but after a half-hour, we guessed they got lost.
