Hains Point "Loop d' Loop" Ride

  • Jan 1, 2014 · 10:00 AM
  • Parking Lot ?C

Start the new year on the right foot or pedal. Practice your riding at one of the area's best criterium 'track' in the area: Hain's Point. A single lap around this famous landmark peninsula is approximately 3.25 miles so multiply that times however many laps you choose to do and you have your total distance.  The group will meet at the parking lot C, a few yards south of the main picnic area.  Click here to view a map of the area. Upon completion we can have an optional lunch at the Capital Grill on the grounds of the golf course. They serve hamburgers, hotdogs, fish sandwiches, etc. 

Highlights: Pancake flat course, head winds on one side, tail winds on the other and numerous restrooms.

- All rides are 'No Drop', for nobody will be left behind.
- ID, spare tube, bike lock/cable is highly recommended.
- Snacks and liquids can be purchased.
- Rain or Shine
- Email me if you have any questions.

    What a great way to start the new year. Total of 64 miles for a 100k ride. It was great to meet new people, as well as some of the veterans. Looking forward to 2014 being an epic year of cycling. My ride stats here:

    Happy New Year everybody! Great ride today and pretty nice weather for early Jan. I think this is the 14th time I've done the Haines Pt. New Year's Day ride. Ah, who's counting! There were lots of pace lines (some pretty fast) to latch onto if you wanted to get a good workout!

    Keep the rubber side down!

    Does anybody know if the place is metro accessible? If I get off Smithsonian, could I ride my bike without having to cross major roads or highways?

      If the traffic is too busy for you taste, you can exit the Waterfront metro station(green line) and take Water Street to the temporary sidewalk bike trail to Hains Point. http://www.gmap-pedom...­
