    Default Saturday Feb 21, 10 am: In Search of the W&OD Railroad in Alexandria

    *** Update: this was rescheduled to March 14 ***

    This informal Community Bike Ride will take us on a search for the remnants of the Washington and Old Dominion railroad in Alexandria. There is enough of the old right-of-way left that one could imagine a trail/road bike boulevard parallel to West Glebe including trail sections and Tennessee Ave.

    One section, less than a mile, will be on wood-chip-paved dirt and some riding will be on sidewalks, but most will be on low-speed roads or bike paths. We will stop often to point out where the W&OD railroad once delivered passengers to St Elmo and Alexandria Junction. We should get back to Del Ray in time for lunch or a snack at noon.

    This will be a no drop ride. The 7-mile route (more or less): http://goo.gl/7rZeWJ

    Date: Saturday February 21, 10 am - Noon
    Location: Velocity Bike Co-op, 2111 Mt Vernon Ave, 22301
    Cost: There is no cost to attend.
    Bring: Yourself, a bicycle, water, a sense of adventure.

    In Virginia, helmets are required for riders 14 and younger. This ride will go ahead unless rain is expected.

    Default Ride rescheduled for March 7 (but will do a hike on the original date)

    Because there is too much ice on the roads and trails for the February 21 bike ride, we are doing a 3-mile hike on that day instead.

    The Feb 21 hike is here: http://www.meetup.com/Alexandria-Bik...nts/219740686/

    The rescheduled 7-mile bike ride is on March 7: http://www.meetup.com/Alexandria-Bik...nts/220626696/

    Notice: This ride was rescheduled to March 14, 10 am, because of a conflict with the St Patrick's Day Parade on March 7.
