***DATE CHANGE: Sunday, 04/14/2013***
Dust off your bike and join us for a nice easy ride and some beer this Sunday!
Meet at meetup location and take Four Mile Run Trail East to the Mount Vernon Trail. Then take the Mount Vernon Trail South into Old Town Alexandria.
This should be a nice easy ride with a stop at Daniel O'Connell's Bar and Restaurant for a Beer, Wine, Soda, Water, Food, etc. Once finished, we'll take the same route back to the Laundromat.
WHAT TO BRING: Bike, helmet, ID, and money/credit cards for O'Connell's.
WHAT: The Four Mile Run Trail traverses the Four Mile Run stream valley and has many twists and turns, not to mention steep sections (mercifully short). In places, the trail more or less parallels the W&OD Trail, connecting to it in several places. Four Mile Run takes off from Bluemont Junction Park and heads to the Mount Vernon Trail where the latter meets the southern edge of Ronald Reagan National Airport and the Potomac River. The trail is wooded and crosses creek in numerous places. This will be a beginners level ride, about 7 miles total, but all levels are free to join. The bike path is paved.
TIME: This ride starts promptly at 11:00 AM so please be on time. If you are running late please contact the organizer Todd at[masked] directly to figure out how to arrange meeting up.
GEAR/DISCLAIMER: You are responsible for providing your own bike and helmet. Helmets are required to participate in the ride. In addition all riders understand that they ride at their own risk and that the group leaders take no responsibility for rider's safety/injury.
RSVP: Since this event is unpaid - make sure to only RSVP if you can attend! Or, if you can't attend please update your RSVP to give someone else the chance.
