Jim Morrison or Han Solo?
Team #!'s Sunyata, Bikewoman & Henry came out for a team ride, along with a few friends. Ran into Rod Smith at National Harbour, saw MrTinDC twice on a cold & clear day.
OK w/ me - I think Rule 9 Velo made a double-secret FB club for members only
Hey team, let's go for a bike ride on Sat 1/31

Old Wheatland and Old Waterford almost seem paved now. Furnace Mountain Rd was still gravel two weeks ago. Not sure about Piggot Bottom Road.
A few of those roads are gravel, but they're the "new" type of gravel that pretty much seem paved. So disappointed the last time I was out there.
All kidding aside, finding the right FG gear ratio is a matter of personal preference and the type of rides you plan to go fixed. I have two scenarios:

Hey Henry, I posted here (#33 on this thread) and also sent invites via Strava. You should have got a notification on Strava - sorry if you missed it. I'll send reminders next time.

Also, can I suggest that our team use the Strava Club discussions as the place for posts and communications? This thread tends...
Not yet, we still have 2 team mates that still need to join - Bikewoman and Zuc.
Bikewoman tried but I botched the strava club invite - sorry my mistake. I don't know Zuc and haven't been able to...
Sorry plans changed - wife & son bailed.
I'm planning to start from Bikenetic around noon, ride with family on road tires, will avoid ice. Think we'll hit 2 coffee shops maybe 25 - 30 miles if anyone wants to join. Check back here on this...
