    Default Looking for a Cycling Buddy in DC

    I am looking for a cycling buddy to ride with about three times a week (on road).
    My typical ride schedule is Tuesday and Thursday before work, about 6:00-8:00 am (Hains Point), 15-18 miles; and Sunday, 8:00ish am, 25-50 miles (Custis, Rock Creek, W&OD, etc)
    My average speed is about 14 MPH, including climbs and descents.
    I don't want to hold anyone up, but I am willing to push myself. I am not really competitive, so I don't race (obviously ;-)
    I ride a Trek Madone 5.1.

    I leave from Adams Morgan.
    It would be great to help motivate each other. I am much more likely to get up at 5:30 if I know someone is waiting for me!

    There are a lot of different weekend group rides that you should check out. Conte's Falls Church does a hill ride on Saturday mornings. I know the new Conte's in Old Town is trying to get a shop ride organized. Not sure if Conte's at The Yards does a shop ride. Trek Clarendon does a Sunday ride that goes out to Potomac and is 30-ish miles. Spokes in Alexandria (Quaker Lane) also does a Sunday ride. I'm sure other shops do weekend rides and one of them would suit you.

    Following on to those recommendations: I'd also recommend the Bicycle Space group rides (http://www.bicyclespacedc.com/weeklyrides/) that usually leave from their Adams Morgan or Downtown locations or, potentially, the ones from Bike Rack (https://thebikerackdc.com/calendar/group-rides/) from either 14th and Q or Brookland.
