    Default Memorial Day Weekend -- any rides happening?

    This year we have no plans to travel, so I was looking to get some riding in. Does anyone know if there are any rides going on in the area? Particularly on Saturday and/or Monday?

    I've got a 40 mi route I want to try, but am trying to figure out what else to do and thought I'd see if there were any holiday weekend happenings.

    There's a good one on Monday. Lots of pretty views and good descents.

    And camaraderie. Oh, and lots of descents. And downhills.

    Links from previous years. Feel free to create a Social Ride complement like KC did in 2014 and jabberwocky did last year. Was awesome.

    Basically it sounds like I just need to avoid North Arlington. Hmmm.

    I didn't say that *I* needed to avoid North Arlington. I like to hang with the riffraff now and again.

    Well if you're looking for vodka, on Memorial Day we'll be imitating the women's TT VR 120 route from Demydiv through Sukholuchchya, about 80 km for us. Saturday is All Ukraine Bike Day with a predicted 10,000 cyclists riding here. Should I wear my Bike Arlington jersey since it is the right color scheme? Second question, Pugsley or Rove for the cobblestones?
