This Meetup is cancelled

3 Hour ride on the C&O Canal....hybrid or mountain bikes only!

  • Great Falls Maryland Side

    11710 MacArthur Blvd. Potomac, MD, Potomac, MD (map)

    38.832638 -77.065758

  • Meet by the bathrooms- be ready to leave at 1:45
  • This was so much fun, I want to do it again!

    Hopefully without ice and mud this time! ;)

    I need to ride more to be ready for my first 40 mile bike ride in NYC. I know 40 miles is not a lot for some of you , but for me it is a mini milestone.   I have not done more than 25 miles yet on my hybrid, so I need some practice rides.

    I was thinking to start at the C & O Canal from Great Falls Visitor Center and go North to Riley's lock which is about 16 miles round trip on the tow path. 

    Depending who comes, how the weather is, what our mood is, I might like to go a bit further. Maybe just ride out for 1 hr and 15 minutes, take a few saddle breaks  then ride back making it a 3 hour tour. ;)

    Wanna join me?

    You will ride at your own risk.

    You will need a hybrid or mountain bike!

    Bring water and snack.

    We can go grab a bite to eat after in Cabin John at Wild Tomato or Fish Taco.

    Wild Tomato


    Or two doors over at Fish Taco
