Thursday Evening Tenley Ride

(EDOW Region 2 - for Bishops Ride Team Training participants)

Location where people meet is in on the sidewalk on Yuma St. next to an open church grassy yard on the FAR EAST SIDE of the circle.

All season long (April to October) we ride each Thursday starting at 6:30 PM and ending before dusk - the ride gets longer as the days get longer and then shorten again after summer solstice. Ride is part of the Potomac Pedalers Touring Club but all are welcome - must bring a helmet and be responsible rider.

* I'm now recommending bringing a road bike with a bike computer and a clip for a cue sheet to do the ride - once you get 30 seconds behind the group, you're on your own - but with a cue sheet you can still enjoy and complete the ride.

Cue sheets are distributed and waivers signed at the start site and multi level ride allows each to follow their own cue sheet - most cluster in fast, medium, and slow groups but sometimes we all come in together for a pizza dinner (most attend but not required).

Pizza at Armand's 4231 Wisconsin Ave NW, has been a tradition for everyone who wants to join - $3 a slice and $6 for a salad bar - beer $ varies according to quality but around $5 a glass. If you get off course and drop out of the ride, please come for pizza anyway and meet, chat and eat with the group.

Regular coordinator is Paul Fegelson and many step up as assistant leader if Paul can't make it.

    My road bike was stolen and I'm looking to buy a used one as I only have $500 to spend. Does anyone know where in DC I can buy one?

      I bought a road bike on eBay with good results, and Craiglist might be good as well, but I am sure that quality varies.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
