    Glad you'll be able to come on the ride! In order to tackle the issue of the expected hot weather, I have made efforts to scout out places at each stop that will be in the shade, added a second rest stop so people can resupply, and have looked up locations of available water fountains. I think it will really come down to properly managing my time at each stop to make sure the group isn't baking in the sun.

    As far as a head count goes, I am expecting anywhere from 5-15 people, but that is a rough estimate.

    I hope to attend the first few hours of the ride, FYI.

    Note cards are ready (fastened them together using a key ring) in case I need them; see y'all in the morning!

    Make that 6-16, unless I decide on my way down from College Park that the heat is too insane

    @bobco85- As promised, a picture of the Rosslyn skyline in 1977...before I-66, before Gateway Park. Sorta close to where we stood.

    DC's own Rosslyn Mountain Boys added a country rock accent to the famed DC scene that caromed from rockabilly to power pop to psychedelic surf guitar, garage style, to the beginnings of punk. With a blues chaser.
