The Ride: Detail
For your riding pleasure NoVA CBG presents Tuesday Evening - Hains Point.

We'll start in Shirlington and head east on the Four Mile Run Trail and then head north on the Mt. Vernon trail. We cross the 14th Street bridge and head up Ohio Drive to say "Hi" to Mr. Lincoln. We will then run back down Ohio Drive to do a loop on Hains Point. Once done, we'll head back to Shirlington the way we came.

This is a Medium level ride because we're going to keep a pace of 13-15mph on flat stretches, and the total distance is approximately 18 miles. This is a NO DROP ride so you will not be left behind but you are expected to try to keep pace.

The Meeting Spot:
Shirlington Branch Library
4200 Campbell Ave

We will meet directly in front of the library.
