C * 17 mile * MD * 10:15 am * Friday Lunch Ride *Veirs Mill Park
The regular Friday Lunch Ride is moving south and starting a little later for the winter. We'll start at 10:15 from Veirs Mill Park (VMP) at the North end of Beach Drive and head out on a ride. The plan for 3/23 is to go to Parkway Deli for lunch, taking roads (staying off the trail/path at least until the afternoon). About 9 miles to lunch and a little less on the way back. Ride destination for lunch will vary along with the ride length, with weather and trail conditions being one of the considerations. Please check here weekly for destination info and any possible cancellations due to weather. This ride will be at a C pace, averaging up to 12-14 when on flat roads and significantly slower if hills and/or paved trails; see the Ride Class Table ( ) for more info on ride classes and average speeds. Don't forget locks, helmets and lunch money. Please arrive in time to be ready to roll at our departure time of 10:15. Norman Rasmussen
