Skyline Drive Ride

Hi Everybody,
Lets go out and ride on Skyline drive. We will be starting out by Front Royal and do 20 to 25 (with breaks at the overlooks) miles and then turn around and come back. This is a really fun ride and very scenic; the fall colors were great last weekend, hopefully we can still enjoy them .
The temperatures will be cooler up on Skyline drive, so please bring a wind breaker, arm warmers, gloves, etc.
We can meet at the Vienna Metro and arrange for Carpooling at 8am. Or meet at the Skyline drive entrance in Front Royal at around 9:30am.
I can take one more passenger and a bike, comfortably. I also have a park admission pass. If you'd like to ride with me, comment on here and let me know. If there is someone really wants to carpool with me I could squeeze in another passenger and bike as well).
This will be a no-drop moderate pace ride 15-18mph (we can ride faster or slower to keep the group together), please have your bike in working condition.

Please bring everything that you think you will need: tubes, patch kit, water and snacks.
And remember No Helmet = No Ride, please wear a helmet.

**Please make sure you have good tires, You don't want a blow out while descending @ 40-50 mph back to the car**
