We are a chapter of the Southern Cruisers Riding Club, that serves Fairfax county, the city of Alexandria, Arlington county and the major metropolitan area of Northern Virginia. We have monthly meetings, Short-notice pick-up rides, scheduled saturday rides, weekend overnighter rides and often week-long touring rides to various parts along the east coast. We are experienced group riders with a philosophy that 'more may not be better'. We don't ride in large groups so the trips and group is managable. Additionally, we have monthly meetings where chapter buisness is discussed, upcoming events are planned and we all share a spirit of friendship.
Most of our riders are very experienced, both with miles in the saddle and riding together. Some of the requirements for the rides led by members may include: Experienced with long distance riding (over 100 miles between stops, 500+ miles in a single day); Experience riding 'twisties' at speeds near or above the 'posted' limits; Freeway riding, and can function as a member of a group or as a single rider as the occasions warrant; Experience and comfort riding on uneven surfaces (wet, gravel, sand).
Some rides are oriented to beginner or novice riders. Each operator is responsible for their own safety, and the mechanical condition of their vehicle.
We want to have fun together, socialize, ride, eat, and cuss at each other as the occasion fits. I respect that we may not be for everybody, but everybody is welcome.
