This is a brand new group that I am trying to get off the ground. My thought is to see if there are folks interested in joining me and a couple of my buddies for some easy-paced motorcycle day trips starting in the North Arlington vicinity. I’m thinking of 75 to 100 mile day trips that can easily be done within a few hours. Examples would be riding to Middleburg and back, or Ellicott City and back, or Annapolis and back, or out to Leesburg with a return trip on the Maryland side of the Potomac through the Poolesville area. Whenever possible we would be riding scenic back roads and avoiding busier roads and highways (Beltway, 270, 66, 95 etc…). This would probably be a good group for beginners, but I’d welcome riders of all skill levels. It also might be a good group for bikers who are new to the DC area and want to learn the nicer, safer, more scenic roads to ride. I, myself, ride a Triumph Bonneville; but all types of bikes are welcome. It might not be for the sport bike types though, but I’m certainly not going to exclude anyone. Just being honest as the previously mentioned relaxed pace might not be enough for those types of bikes and bikers. I am also hoping that this can be a very collaborative group and would welcome any cool rides that you might already know of and would like to share with other riders. Drop me a line if you’re interested, and maybe we can make this become a reality.
Hey Ladies and Gents!! Sorry for the lack of rides of late. I was on vacation with the family two weekends ago and this past weekend was just TOO damn hot and humid. But THIS weekend looks like it will be almost perfect. So let's RIDE!!!!!!! I'm thinking of a ride to Clifton, VA and back. Let's take the GW Parkway out past Mt Vernon and then head up towards Clifton via some beautiful looking back roads. Grab some lunch there and then head back in a big loop to Arlington. Here's the route I have in mind: https://www.mapmyride.com/routes/fullscreen/2648085184/
