TIME CHANGE: Ride to Lake Anna - Lunch at the Tavern on the Rail

Hey all... this morning at my home it's 38 degrees, foggy, and misting... the radar seems to show clouds across all of eastern US.  It's just not the sort of day I was looking at for today's ride... but let's see how the weather goes, so I moved the meet time a little later to 10am... I think some folks (Carlos, Brian) are going to ride at that time regardless.


Hey gang,

Guess folks are getting some cabin fever... this Saturday is looking to be in the 60's, so let's get the ride to Lake Anna in.  It will be a nice easy cruising ride over mostly back country roads.  Total mileage is about 185 miles, meet at 9:15, kickstands up at 9:30 (please be gassed up and ready to go), do lunch by around noon, and we should be back in Warrenton by around 4pm.

More to come about this later this week, but on this ride and all future rides, I am going to insist we ride as a group and not be strung out over a mile of road.  I have talked with other active members of the group and they all agree...  I expect everyone to ride within their abilities, but at the same time maintain a reasonable assembly of riders.  The formation should be staggered while riding simple roads, then single file into any sort of twisty section.  We should be tight as we enter into a town area and two-by-two when we come to a stop.  Recommended riding gap distance is 1 -2 seconds behind the rider directly in front of you.  I have been thinking about this for some time now and as I stated, there will be more about this coming this week along with some other changes to the WASRA group that I believe will make WASRA a better group for everyone.

Hope to see you this Saturday.

    Good times getting out for a mid-winter ride... while it was a balmy 45 degrees most of the day, I enjoyed taking in the wonderful browns and golds of the winter countryside. Enjoyed meeting some new members, Dennis and Jorge... and responding to the NEWBIES Sam and Veronic unpreparidness for the winter cold... no socks, no gloves, no under layer... ooooff! And it was great to see us ride in a nice group, looked great to look back and see a consistent formation as we cruised Rt 522.
