Fwd: Sunday Ride, February 27, 2011

Dear Friends,

We have a nice ride to Madison, Virginia scheduled for Sunday, and the forecast there is for sunny and 60F!

Please download and print out your own cue sheet and GPS files for the weekend rides.   Just click on "Cue Sheets" (on the left side of this page), and you'll find them there!  When you open a pdf file, just click on "Print" to print the cue sheet.  If you're unable to print the cue sheet yourself, let me know and I'll bring a hard copy to the ride start for you.  I won't be bringing extra copies of cue sheets to the ride start unless you email me directly and advise me that you're unable to print out your own.


"PORK BARREL CENTURY," starting from Margaret Pierce Elementary School, Remington, Virginia.  **MEETING TIME 8:00 a.m.**  This ride heads in a southwest direction over mellow terrain, as we pass through Brandy Station and Rapidan on the way to lunch at the Madison Inn in Madison, Va.  See http://www.madisoninnva.com/.  We'll have a rest stop in Rapidan in the morning, but please bring your own snacks, as the Rapidan Trading Post will probably not yet have opened its eyes when we get there.  Afternoon rest stop at the Reva Market.  Estimated elevation gain somewhere between 4000 and 5000 feet.  101 miles with an optional 6-mile shortcut before lunch and 4.5-mile shortcut near the end of the ride.

Directions to ride start:


From Beltway Exit 9, take I-66 West 21 miles to Exit 43A (Gainesville/Warrenton).  Take US29 south 24 miles to Remington.  Turn left onto Bus.29, just past VA28.  Proceed 1.4 mi. to school on R.
