    Default Sandy Hook Ride on Washington (SHROW) 2014

    The SHROW is scheduled for March 8-11. No details yet, but I wanted to put out a save the date for Tuesday, March 11 when the group is scheduled to ride into DC. They'll be stopping at Proteus Bicycles again to regroup and refuel. You can meet at Proteus, or along the route (which we'll post as soon as we have some info). Hopefully we'll have better weather this year so we have can have a great turnout!

    PS. This ride is another great way to stock up on BAFS points. Last year, a couple idiots and I got up early and rode to Baltimore to meet up with the long-distance riders, then rode back down to DC with them. Here's was my day of it: http://www.strava.com/activities/44152278

    Tremendous fun and a great ride! Contact me or respond here if you're interested and we'll organize a meetup once we know the timing etc. -Jeff

    If I'm in town I'll be interested, not sure if I can get up your way to join the ride up to Baltimore, but that would be a great way to add some Freezing Saddles miles. It was a great and moving event last year even in the pouring rain. Thanks for doing this.

    I'd love to be able to actually do this this year... we'll see what's going on around that time but it's on my calendar.

    We still don't have details on timing, but we're learning a little more about the route... the plan for March 11 is for the riders to go from Baltimore, to Proteus (College Park), then to the National Cathedral, and from there to the Capitol. We were planning to scout the route today, but the trails in our area are still not fit for riding. We hope to try to scout the route this weekend after we get some melting. Will post details as soon as we have them!

    Not an official schedule yet, but I'm thinking the timing will be something like this:

    5am Depart Greenbelt
    7:30am Arrive/Depart Baltimore
    10:00am Arrive Proteus
    10:30am Depart Proteus
    11:45am Arrive National Cathedral
    12:15pm Depart National Cathedral (police escort!)
    1pm Arrive U.S. Capitol

    Anybody want to ride to Baltimore with me at 5am?

    Folks are welcome to meetup with the ride at Proteus or at the Cathedral. Hopefully the Bishop of the National Cathedral is going to ride with us!.

    Laurie will open the shop at about 9am I think so people can stage there and ride back with us after or take Metro (the shop is about a mile from Greenbelt station) back to Proteus.

    All these details could change a little, but it should be a great day. Hopefully the weather will be better this year!

    Here's a video from last year's ride (in the rain!)

    And here's a video of getting to the bike shop from Greenbelt Metro


    Here's directions from DC for anyone riding out to College Park for the 10am meetup:

    I'm thinking of riding up to join you for the ride to Baltimore, but it will depend on the weather. I don't want a repeat of last year. Anyone want to leave Arlington about 3 am?

    Unfortunately I have obligations at work until at least 11am. Hopefully by the year I'm actually able to join this ride there won't be a need for it anymore.

    Greenbelt - a couple planning related questions:

    Are you allowed to post the proposed route the ride will take from Baltimore?

    Also, I'd like to get your proposed route to Baltimore.

    Do you know what sort of ride pace they're shooting for (or you're shooting for)?

    Thanks
