Potomac Pedalers Pages

Welcome! We hope you'll join us on any one of the more than 1000 rides we lead each year. Our full schedule is posted at our very comprehensive website http://www.potomacped....

We’ll post several of our “social” rides on MeetUp each month.

Potomac Pedalers' rides are open to non-members, but we rely on membership dues to support our activities. If you enjoy riding with us, we encourage you to join PPTC and help keep our club strong. For more information on membership and its benefits, click over to our main web site: http://www.potomacped...

Although Potomac Pedalers does not adhere to a No-Drop policy, a number of the club's ride leaders do lead No-Drop rides. No Drop rides will be clearly labeled as such.

What to Bring

*Plenty of liquids (two filled water bottles or a camelback are recommended) and energy bars/gels/fruit/PBJ sandwiches of your choice for fueling yourself on the ride.
*Cash for possible use at the rest stop (e.g., Gatorade, energy bars) and for the post-ride gathering.
*Photo ID and contact information.
*Emergency kit (cash, spare inner tube, pump, tire changing tool, etc.)
