    Default Dumpling ride, Saturday 2/2

    Update: the ride was originally scheduled for Saturday 2/2, but has been moved to Sunday 2/3 for weather reasons. Ignore the title of this post.

    Dumpling ride on Sunday, February 3. The plan:
    • Meet for coffee at 8:30 a.m., Whole Foods Pentagon City, 520 12th Street S. If you're feeling especially brave, try the dumplings there.
    • Roll out from Whole Foods at 9:00 a.m. and ride to Falls Church.
    • Be at Mark's Duck House, 6184 Arlington Blvd., when it opens at 10:00 a.m. Order dumplings and other dishes from traditional dim sum carts.
    • Ride some of the new bike lanes in Annandale to get to A&J, 4316 Markham St. Enjoy dumplings and other Chinese small plates.
    • Ride more of the new bike lanes in Annandale to get back to the W&OD.
    • Finish the ride at District Dumplings in South Arlington, 2923 S. Glebe Rd.


    Have questions? Read on.

    Why dumplings? As bikedavid pointed out, there's nothing like a steaming hot plate of dumplings on a cold winter day.

    What's the route? https://ridewithgps.com/routes/29186688. About thirty miles, a mix of trails and roads. Social pace (12-15 mph), no drop. All FS participants and friends are welcome.

    What should I bring? Bring a lock and cash (A&J is cash only).

    Can I join the ride along the way? Sure. Send me a PM with your email address so that I can temporarily add you to my Garmin LiveTrack. You'll get an email when we start riding, with a link to see where we are in real time.

    What if I'm vegetarian? A&J and District Dumplings have both meat and vegetarian dumplings, as well as other vegetarian dishes. I can't find the dim sum menu for Mark's Duck House online, but there should be vegetarian options.

    What if the weather is bad? My Asian food rides have a history of being epically soggy. I'm hoping that the third time is the charm, but watch this thread for updates.

    Why February 3? This is the last Sunday before the Chinese New Year, which starts on February 5 this year. Dumplings are traditionally eaten to bring good luck in the new year.

    Have you considered how tomorrow's Women's March may affect things?
