NOVA weekend rides

OK Campers...

How about a little ride around Loudoun County on Sunday August 21?
v2 will depart at 10 am from somewhere on Rt 50 TBD near Middleburg.
Mostly dirt. Last time out we covered 90 miles with a lunch break.
So thats my plan.
Open to suggestions, recommendations but not to trash talk.
Drop me a line if your interested. or not!

In. The social schedule be damned.

Wait. That's trash talk, ain't it? In trouble and the side stands aren't up yet.

Bumpety-bump. Get on board, train is leaving soon. Get the kitchen pass, develop a sick uncle you gotta go visit, whatever. There will be snow flying and cold soon enough. What particularly makes these routes good is that Loudoun County treats their dirt roads with nasty chemicals to keep the dust down. Otherwise, the first three bikes have a good ride, the rest choke on dust. Not the case here. A good ride for all skill levels.

The only thing that surpasses the route is the outstanding company you will be with.

A s-t-r-e-t-c-h, but . . . might be IN.

Any more granularity on starting point and time?

Escape Route

The finely tuned excursion itinerary (not) calls for Lunch in/near Leesburg.
There are lots of paved exits from there.
