Details

Looking for a quality epic ride on the somewhat hilly roads of northern Loudoun County in June? Well, the good folks of Bike Me DC (http://www.meetup.com/Bike-Me-DC/events/118937732/) have graciously extended VeloDCity an invitation to a pot-luck style BBQ that includes scenic farmlands, challenging climbs, distance options(27 and 53 miles respectively) and a really cool place to relax and spin a grand tale of your earlier ride experience. The cost is $10 per person which will cover the cost of set-up. Participants are also asked to bring something to eat, drink(or both) to put on the grill and share with your friends. In addition to answering the registration questions, please use the comment field to indicate what you plan bring. If you have any questions, please contact me or the very wonderful Event Host Extraordinaire: Sarah Wentworth for any questions.
