Bike and outdoor movie

Weather dependent and is a partial night ride. I am revising the meet up to watch a movie out of Rosslyn instead of Bethesda because lighting is a bit better on Mt Vernon than Capital Crescent.
Meet at Hains Point. Ride over the 14th street bridge to hit the Mount Vernon and head up to Rosslyn's Gateway Park to watch "Up in the Air" (1300 Lee Highway, corner of North Lynn and Lee Highway across from the Continental Bar and Grill and near the entrance to the Mt. Vernon).  Folks who want to get more miles can do some rounds at Hains before joining at Rosslyn. I prefer to get to Rosslyn to secure a plot. 

Movie only, no riding?- You can take blue/orange (and soon-to-be silver) to Rosslyn and walk to the movie area. 

Total miles (~4mi per way, 8mi round trip). Terrain is flat but you have to bike up a ramp at Rosslyn.

We will use the Glympse app to share our starting location. Please download and install it before the meetup start time.

 Google directions

Parking: Folks who just want to join for the movie, on-street parking in Rosslyn is free after 6pm. Parking map. If you park at Hains, I am not sure how late you can leave your car.

Timing: Movies start at sundown..usually 8:45-9pm. Up in the air will finish close to 11. 

What you need: snacks, water, bike lights (for biking at night), bike lock, and helmet. The outdoor movie will offer popcorn and water for sale for a few bucks. I prefer to carry light f but if you have a small folding chair and can carry it, feel free.

      But if you really wanted to, you could be sneaky about it and put it in a water bottle or something.

    For the new members, because the ride is short and most of the evening will be watching the movie it's appropriate to wear athletic or casual clothes. I will not be in my race cycling outfit, however may have it in the car.

      For future weeks, Union Market is right on the NoMa stop, and the Met Branch trail runs to it. Definitely do not want to be on that one after dark though; very very dangerous in recent months. K St is pretty easy to hop on and get back downtown/to trails.

    I would like for the group to start using http://glympse.com/download app for temporary location sharing, to coordinate meetup starting locations. It would also let our members to find and join us while in a middle of a ride.

    • Scott R.

      Yeah the app is only to augment our current practices, we will continue to post meetup locations etc.

    I am not sure if I'm going to be able to make it :( but just in case, where exactly will you be meeting at Hains Point? I have a dumb phone so I can't download the app.
