    Default DC loop ride -- Sunday, January 21

    Several people expressed interest in doing a DC loop this Sunday, so I'm posting this as an "open to all BAFS participants and friends" ride.

    The plan: roll out from the Whole Foods in Pentagon City at 9:00 a.m. on Sunday. (I'll be there earlier if you want to join me for breakfast or coffee.) Take the Capital Crescent Trail up to Bethesda and stop for coffee -- likely at Quartermaine, although I'm open to suggestions. Head east to hit the Sligo Creek and Northwest Branch Trails, with a lunch stop at Franklins in Hyattsville. Take the Anacostia Riverwalk Trail to Navy Yard and a beer/ice cream break. Circle back and finish in Pentagon City.

    The route: http://www.mapmyride.com/routes/view/1914792920. It's about 45 miles, on a mix of trails and roads. There's a gentle but steady climb up the CCT to Bethesda, and there's one hilll on Forsythe that I had to walk the last time I did this route. (I'm terrible at hills.) Other than that, the route is pretty flat.

    The details: social pace (12-15 mph), no drop. Bring a lock for the coffee/lunch/beer stops. The temperature is forecast to be about 35 degrees at the start but above 50 degrees by the end, so layer appropriately. If you'd like to join us for just part of the ride, you're welcome to do that too.

    Reminder to all who want to meet up for coffee tomorrow at Caffe Amouri in Vienna. It's a Team 21 "thing" but everyone else is invited to crash the party. Ride out there on your own. Or make it a team ride. Be there, aloha!

    Nice, I looked in there once on a walk around Hyattsville, but never had a beer there.

    Take the Anacostia Riverwalk Trail to Navy Yard and a beer/ice cream break.

    Sigh. Not a new place for me, but a logical place on the loop, and for people who don't get here much, a good place to explore.

    I'm planning on at least a couple of beers and some awesome Puerto Rican food from the food truck, so I'm sure we'll be there past 7:00.

    Uh! I missed not only a happy hour but Puerto Rican food... 😨 I didn't know about the PR food truck @port city. Is that a regular thing? 🙄

    OMG.
    Don't worry; it's a short hill. Only 0.2 miles according to Google, or 0.1 miles for the actual Strava segment.

    Estimating arrival times for these rides is always a crapshoot, but I'm guessing we'll be at the start of the CCT around 9:35-9:45, and at Quartermaine around 10:10-10:20. If you'd like, PM me your cell phone number and I'll text you with an update along the way.
