Tues/Thurs  (Mar 28 - Sep 29, 2017)

The Tuesday/Thursday rides have been a popular, ongoing event for many years.  These rides are organized by Ken Thompson.  The Tuesday/Thursday rides run spring to fall from the beginning of daylight savings time to end of September.  Courses vary week to week for ride levels from 1-6 (A to S).  Separate routes are offered for each ride level.  Riders frequently eat together following rides.
Tuesday rides start at 6PM at the Hunters Woods Shopping Center in Reston (intersection of Colts Neck Rd & Glade Rd; park in the 2 far west lanes near
 Colts Neck Road).   Click for Google  map & directions      

Thursday rides start at 6PM at the parking lot across from the caboose on the W&OD trail in Herndon (intersection of Elden St & Station St; park in the far west lot)  Click for Google  map & directions              

Saturday    (all year)

These are social rides with an impromptu course decided upon by those who show up each week.  There is a no-drop policy so that A and B rides can start and finish together at a pace that is enjoyable for all.  Occasionally, riders break off into smaller groups with similar pace.  The Saturday rides were started by Gaston Prudencio in 2002.  New riders are encouraged to call Randy Karn at 703.402.0227 or John Hamilton at 703-593-9384  if they are planning to ride that weekend.                Saturday rides start at 9AM Apr-Sep; 9:30AM Oct/Mar and 10:00AM Nov-Feb at the parking lot across from the caboose on the W&OD trail in Herndon.   (intersection of Elden St & Station St; park in the far west lot)   Click for Google map & directions
