Lunch in Shirlington Ride
The “Lunch in Shirlington” ride meets year-round on Sundays at 10 AM on the brick plaza in front of the Shirlington Library / Signature Theater at 4200 Campbell Ave, Arlington 22206, for a 16 mile loop on the bike trails of Arlington (the Arlington Loop: traveling first on a portion of the W&OD Trail, then the Custis Trail, the Mount Vernon Trail, and the Four Mile Run Trail). The 3-4 miles on the Custis Trail are hilly; the rest of the ride is pretty flat (average speed on ride is about 10-12 miles per hour; cue sheet available).
This is a friendly, social ride; new people are welcome and will soon be part of the regular group. Lunch after the ride is at one of the many restaurants in Shirlington (free parking in garages and lots). It would be wise to bring a helmet, water, bike lock, and money for lunch. Check the “Ride News” forum on the Potomac Pedalers website for cancellations due to rain, ice, etc. (you must be a forum member to view). For detailed directions to the ride start email the ride leader. Ride Leader: Ron Trueworthy
