The Ride: Details
*****************
For your riding pleasure NoVA CBG presents Tour de Talbot - Oxford (34) School Days (50) & Cemetery (63) routes.

* This is one of NoVA CBG's "Crown Jewel" rides that we only do twice a year. It is a very scenic and flat ride that takes us to the Eastern Shore from Oxford through Easton and St. Michaels MD.
* It is a Cue Sheet/Garmin Ride so you must know how to use either of those to participate as there is NO LEAD NO SWEEP.
* The Robert Morris Inn is directly next to the Oxford Ferry. Please park by the ferry or up the street from the Inn.
* I've made breakfast reservations @ 9:00am but the kitchen has a HARD CLOSE @ 10:00am. We will be rolling @ 10:30am.
* IMPORTANT NOTE: The Oxford/St.Michaels 34 mile riders will get to St. Michaels first before the School Days 50 mile riders as well as the 63 mile riders. We will discuss the morning of the ride how we feel like handling this.
* The goal is to all rendezvous at the Crab Claw and have lunch together if everyone agrees. http://thecrabclaw.com
• It is only 8 miles to the Historic Oxford Ferry. The ferry takes us directly back to the Robert Morris Inn. We all make this trip back together.
• You will need $4 in cash for the ferry ride.

The Fine Print:
**************
An RSVP of 'YES' is your digital signature and means you have read and understood MEETUP.com's "Terms of Service : Section 6. Release " found at https://www.meetup.com/terms/ and NOVA-CBG's "Assumption of Risk Agreement" found @ https://www.meetup.com/novacbg/pages/1942951/NOVA-CBG_Waiver/.

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. If you do not attend the pre-ride preparation you will not be allowed to participate on the ride, there will be NO exceptions.
