Beautiful views of DC monuments, the National Mall and the Potomac River

See photos from last year. https://www.meetup.com/Delaware-Valley-Bicycle-Club-Greater-Philly-Area/photos/28407851/467009764/

Many of us last year chose "intermediate" for speed and 20 mile (instead of 6 miles). You probably want your packet mailed unless you are doing the Friday ride.

My guesstimate based on biking in Philly & NYC is we will go 8 to 12 mph because of crowds. It is 20 miles one loop, so it is possible after lunch if you like to join us on a loop around a scenic river trail. The streets are closed. It will be at a smell the roses, let's take photos pace. You may go faster or slower if you want different stops or pace.

Three days of DC rides!

We also will have a ride Friday May 17th 4pm -7pm, and Sunday morning.

We also have a FACEBOOK group for this event, see posts and comments there from both club's members.

https://www.facebook.com/groups/849928011845284/

Also I like to see the city on these types events and stop and take pictures. So if you want to stay with me feel free, or as the route is closed and will have thousands of folks on it, you may go on your own as well if you desire more or different stops or less stops.

Please post your thoughts and suggestions under comments.

IMPORTANT

For these weekend events, current Delaware Valley Bike Club Membership or current Outdoor Club of South Jersey membership is required. You will need money for parking, food, and the ferry, and of course your overnight accommodations and other transportation if any.

OCSJ- In 1967 the Outdoor Club of South Jersey (OCSJ) was formally organized. Besides biking the Outdoor Club offers hiking, kayaking, canoeing and cross country skiing. One must be a member to attend outings. . Learn more at:

http://ocsj.org/

Remember, being a dues paying club member is not the same as just being a member of their free Meetup group. You will need money for parking, food, and the train if any, and of course your overnight accommodations and other transportation if any.

TERMS OF PARTICIPATION

By registering and participating in this meetup, you acknowledge that you have read and agree to the following statement:

I understand that bicycling involves certain dangers and risks which I am prepared to assume for myself and all children accompanying me. I hereby release and hold harmless the posting group's and individuals, it's Board, individually and collectively, and it's officers, employees, volunteers and agents from any and all injury and damages that result, directly or indirectly, from my participation in this bike ride.

I understand and will bring a spare tube, a bike lock and plenty of liquids, that blinking lights which can save my life are highly suggested, and as is this a Delaware Valley Bike Club and Outdoor Club of South Jersey jointly sponsored event a signed waiver (which leader will have) of liability and a certified helmet (which you should bring) will be required by both clubs. I will bring an operable and safe bike with fully inflated tires (best way to avoid flats), with good brakes and hopefully lights. Make sure you have plenty of water, Camelback or 2 water bottles or both and bring some snacks such as nuts, power bars, etc. I understand I should bring spending money in case I want refreshments afterwards or want something along the way, and a fun attitude and smiles which are best when shared!!

My plus 1 count is to account for members from other sponsoring club.
