    The Ride (The Concert Actually):

    Is Gary really posting a Christmas meetup in August?  Yes, yes I am.  The reason is that tickets for "A Candlelight Christmas" go on sale on August 29th.  Our own Dana "The Diva" performs every year and I keep wanting to make this a meetup and I'm finally doing it.

    Tuesday December 20th @ 7pm ... Any seat is a good seat (all different costs) but if you are looking for a suggestion "Hey Gary, where should I try to buy my ticket" ... some of us are previous Kennedy Center patrons and had an opportunity to pre-order tickets and we are in ROW N and P (there is no row O, see large picture above).

    As the date gets closer we will firm up the time we are meeting ... grab a glass of wine before the show up on the veranda ... enjoy an evening of Christmas music and then meet the Diva herself after the performance and grab a drink and maybe a bite to eat (it will be a school night so not too late though).

    If you want to be a part of the Pre and Post festivities just let me know your row and seat number and we will try to coordinate accordingly.

    The Meeting Spot:


    The Ride after The Ride:

    The Diva herself will grace us with her presence ... and have a drink with us after the performance.  Place TBD.

    Ride Level Chart:

    A note about our ride levels. We try to accommodate all levels of cyclists with different types of rides. We just ask that you come to the ride that suits your current riding ability the best.

    Introductory Level : If you haven't ridden a bike in a number of years (or are uncertain of your abilities on a bicycle).

    Beginner Level : If you can easily ride your bike for 10 miles (distance) with some minor hills at a comfortable pace (10+ to 12+ mph).

    Medium Level : If you can do 20 miles pretty easily at a moderate pace (13 to 15+ mph)

    Advanced Level : If you can do 20++ miles easily at a 15+ pace and / or handle various challenges as rain, night riding, or other odd cycling situations.

    The Fine Print:

    An RSVP of 'YES' is your digital signature and means you have read and understood's "Terms of Service : Section 6.2 " found HERE ( and NOVA-CBG's "Assumption of Risk Agreement" found HERE (

    Remember that helmets are required to participate in all NOVA-CBG rides. NO Helmet, NO ride, NO exceptions. All riders ride at their own risk and with the understanding that cycling is an inherently dangerous activity. When coming to the meetup you do so voluntarily and are ready and able to participate in the ride as described under the conditions of the day.

    Be on time for the "pre-ride" preparation. This is when we check to make sure you have all the required equipment and the last chance for you to make sure your bike is ready for the ride. We will also talk through the route for the day and review basic safety instruction for group riding as well as other important topics. If you do not attend the pre-ride preparation, you will not be allowed to participate on the ride, so please be on time as there will be NO exceptions. Please also keep in mind the group's cancellation policy when you RSVP.
