    Default First 2018 Bicycle Fan Club Ride - Sunday, May 6

    Mark your calendar now for 2018's first Bicycle Fan Club ride to see the Nationals. Sunday, May 6.

    More details to follow, but similar to last year's:
    • Meet up in the morning
    • Ride someplace interesting
    • Finish ride at ballpark about 1pm
    • Watch the Nationals play the Phillies at 1:35pm


    I'll start asking for commitments and money shortly after the FS final happy hour.

    Due to FS withdrawal, I'm organizing an impromptu happy hour today at http://theboardroomva.com/
    The Board Room - it's near the Clarendon metro. - at 10th St. N and Garfield.

    A good selection of beers, and board games!!!

    I'll be there around 6; others may be earlier!

    Now's the time to doublecheck and clear your calendar for this year's first Bicycle Fan Club Ride. Nationals v. Phillies.

    Sunday, May 6
    The pre-game ride is 20 miles with one history stop (water and restrooms available). The ride will be at a moderate, social pace, with 60% on streets and 40% on trails. The group will stick together.
    I have reserved 16 tickets, 1 for me and 15 for youze guys.

    The plan:
    9:15ish - Pre-ride coffee at Bayou Bakery in Courthouse (optional)
    10:00 - Ride briefing
    10:10 - Rollout
    11:15-11:30 - Special DC baseball history landmark stop with captivating narrative by Steve O
    12:30-1:00 - Arrive at ballpark. If early, you may opt to eat something at a nearby eatery. Or you may go in and buy concessions inside. We will park at the Bike Valet.
    1:35 - First pitch! Like last year, there will be a contest; details to follow.
    Post-game - Caravans to your next big thing

    Options:
    A) Ride + Game. Reserve your ticket by forwarding $20 to me, either through PayPal (my email address or paypal.me/steveoffutt) or Venmo (Steve_Offutt)
    B) Just the ride. Anyone is welcome to join for the ride. No charge; just show up.
    C) Just the game. If you want to come to the game but not join the ride, you may, provided there are tickets left. Watch this thread.

    If you live over there somewhere and don't want to come all the way to Arlington, you may catch the ride along the way. We will pass through downtown DC, Brookland, Bladensburg and ride the Anacostia Trail.

    I'll commit to the whole deal (option A, including coffee). Keep an eye on your Venmo Steve O.

    How does the bike valet work?

    Josh : How does Bike valet work --- Fabulously!

    You bike to the bike valet spot...well look at the Nats website for exactly where it is.
    You take a ticket, write your name on it and tape it to your bike. Lock your bike (get there early so you get a spot) - tear off half of the ticket, and give the other half to the attendant.

    They keep an eye on bikes during the game. Afterward, same thing in reverse (and they appreciate tips).
    I've done it a few times and it works like a charm!

    I'll be there, and will send you some $ Steve O. Thanks as always for organizing.

    Arrange for maybe 75, breezy, and not too humid, ok??
