ABRT Saturday Ride

This is the “premier” ABRT group ride. This ride has been in existence since before the formation of ABRT over 30 years ago. The ride is 60 miles and travels to south to North Beach in Calvert County, mostly on smaller roads, and back. The ride takes 2:45 to 3:15 pedaling time (18-21+ mph, slower in winter) and is about 60 miles. The first part of the ride usually stays together for the most part and very often on the second half the ride will split into various groups. Often there will be a dedicated slower “B” group (16-18 mph) which will let the faster riders go and this group typically does a shorter ride of 42 miles to Deale and there are often regroup spots.

Regardless of group, riders should always be prepared to ride alone of they can not reasonably maintain the group pace, so should always bring a GPS enabled device if the route is not familiar. The time change happens after memorial/labor day weekends.

Time: 8 am (summer: Memorial Day-Labor Day), 9 am (fall/spring: Labor Day-December/March-Memorial Day, 10 am  (winter – December-March)

At the 27-mile mark, we head back along Piney Meeting House Rd, then circle back toward DC via River Rd to Falls Rd. We regroup at the top of Great Falls Park (37-mile mark), and return together on MacArthur.

We roll promptly at 8:35am from the Java Shack in Arlington, stopping briefly at 8:55 am at Pierce Mill to pick up DC riders. The ride lasts about 3 hours.

The Winter Ride Series

Welcome back to a PPTC tradition, the Winter Ride.  We have been going strong for more than a decade.  The series runs from December through March.  This is a multi-class ride, with a variety of lengths to suit your preference on any given Sunday.  We have multiple ride leaders (see below) and can have up to 50 riders on a good day, so you are very likely to find someone riding your pace and distance.

The ride does not go if there is precipitation (snow or rain) or if the roads are very slick due to recent precipitation.  Check this listing on any given Sunday to see if the ride has been canceled on a particular day.

The ride starts at the Adventure Playground at South Germantown Recreational Park.  One of the reasons for the ride start location is the heated bathrooms available year 'round.  In addition, we will be riding on low traffic roads in the Montgomery Ag Reserve.

Category: AA/A/BB/B/CC
Distance options: 50/48/45/40/32 miles
