Nice scenery, few cars, 70F, wind < 5mph, mostly flat course with a few hills
GT GTR Pro (2008) Road Bike
Yes, always ride with these bare biking essentials. Though I use 4-ply tubes and puncture resistant tires, so flats are a thing of the past, but still best to be prepared.
16-18 mph for 40-60 miles. A bit weak on the hills.
Been biking for about 3 years, mostly W&OD and Prince William Parkway. Ride year round, but like to avoid rain and snow :)
Very well organized with lots of opportunites for member participation
