Great Washington D.C. Chapter - Monthly Bike Ride
Saturday 10 October at 0830
Start at Prince William Forest Park - 5475 Turkey Run Rd. Triangle, VA 22172 (in Prince William Forest Park)
This will be a group ride to get us together and outside. We will vary the location to maximize exposure to area resources and get members of the GWC together. Ride #2 will be in Prince William Forest Park. We can ride either Road or Mountain ... or, Both!
** There is a fee to enter the park **
$20 per vehicle, $15 if you ride in, good for 7 days. OR, $35 annual pass.
OR, use your National Park Service Annual or Lifetime Pass.
Taking COVID into consideration, in future rides, we will look for ways to engage with Midshipmen to ride in Annapolis and throughout the region.
At the first ride, we will probe interest in obtaining a riding kit that in some way can support the USNA cycling or triathlon teams as well as the GWC.
