    Default Strava/GPS Art Ride

    Itís hard to think of a more fun way to get BAFS points. A bike ride that makes a picture! This event is open to all freezing saddles riders


    Strava/GPS Art Ride
    Saturday Feb 8, at 9:30 AM Meet at Italian Store at Spout Run

    This is a 12 mile ride that is a combination of secondary and residential streets and the Custis Trail. You'll have to do the ride to see what it is, so it will be a mystery until you post your ride(s) This is a no-drop ride, avg speed 10-12 mph. You must be comfortable riding on Lee Highway and Washington Blvd, but nothing busier than that.
    Bonus.....Donut stop! Along the route

    Just a reminder: A week from Saturday, everyone who's interested will meet at 9:30 AM at the Spout Run Italian Store. I just saw the Italian Store doesn't open until later, but there's a STARBUCKS next door where early birds can meet for coffee and warmth before the ride! We're expecting an on-time departure so get to Starbucks early if you want a hot beverage before we begin!

    Black Diamonds, Everyone! All welcome!

    Tomorrow is the big day. I plan to get to Starbucks around 9 AM before the ride for coffee to warm us up for the start!
    Ride begins at 9:30 AM. All participants who complete the artwork are guaranteed at least 67 BAFS 2020 points!

    The artwork is a surprise. You won't know what your drawing (riding) until you finish. Pointless Prize awarded on the spot awarded to the first rider to identify the picture! (brand new Capital Bike Share sunglasses)

    Hey Dave! I'm planning to join you - I can't resist the surprise art!
    My teammate Cassy is coming too, from Takoma park.

    Looking forward to it!

    FFG,
    Thanks for a great ride. It was fun to not know what we were drawing and try to guess.
