What a challenging (and rainy) ride!!! I am definitely humbled by the Taylorstown and Stumptown hills. Maybe next year I will complete the whole ride and not have to walk up any hills. ;-)
Missed out on doing the South loop but still got in 101.11 miles by working in the extra miles at the end on the W&OD. Had a couple of great riding partners, huge thanks to Dino and Gabe for your company and encouragement!!! Loved running into all the friends I have made through cycling. :)

I actually enjoy riding in adverse weather conditions. I feel it gives me a little extra umph to my pedal strokes. I think i rode through more rain today than all the times I have been caught in the rain over the previous 8 years I've been riding. I had a blast in the monsoon. I did take refuge under an overpass as a nasty spell if thunder and lightning was passing over.

Hi, this will be my first ride with this group. I don't expect to stay together once the ride starts, but will folks be meeting at a certain place? (I see the 7am meet-up time, and the Reston Town Center Pavilion meet-up place, but I'm not sure how I will recognize the group. Do you have a banner or something?) Looking forward to a fun ride!
