35 miles, moderately hilly on country roads, through woods, fields and small towns -- in the spring or fall.
Novara (REI) Randonee.
Absolutely! When I lead rides, helmets are MANDATORY. No helmet, no ride.
"C" pace, about 15 mph on flat roads, faster downhill and as slow as necessary going uphill.
Potomac Pedaler club member and ride leader. I look at the rides as 50% exercise and 50% socialzing. A great way to meet interesting people. Lunch or a drink afterwards is an essential part of the ride.
Great club; new riders welcome. Dozens of rides to choose from -- especially in warmer months starting now -- in MD, VA & DC at wide variety of locations, lengths, and speeds -- both weekdays and weekends. Many listed on MeetUp, and all listed at PotomacPedalers.org.
