Dear Friends,

If you're home for the holidays, we'd love for you to join us for a ride on Monday! 

Please download and print out your own cue sheet, GPS file, and overview map for Monday's ride directly from the DCCenturyRides blog,

Just click on "Cue Sheets" (on the left side of the page), and you'll find them there!  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.

Here are the juicy details:


"BONNE ROUTE," starting from Dave Berning's house, 12430 McCrossin Lane, Potomac, Maryland.  **MEETING TIME 7:45 a.m.**  We first did this ride in August of 2007 as a send off for Randonneurs who were PBP-bound. It's only moderately hilly (probably ~ 5000 feet elevation gain), definitely the easiest century that we do starting from Dave's house.  Nothing new under the sun on the route, but it's a very nice ride to Purcellville via Seneca, Dickerson, Point of Rocks, Lovettsville, and Hillsboro.  We return via White's Ferry (bicycles now pay $2.00 to the toll troll).  We'll most likely have lunch in Purcellville but may opt for Hillsboro if we just can't wait.  98 miles with several optional shortcuts.  If you take all of them you'll have 76 miles total, but will miss Hillsboro and Purcellville.  Here's the link to the RWGPS interactive map and elevation profile:

Directions to the ride start:


From I-495 in VA:  Cross Potomac River and exit to River Road west.  Go about 9 miles and turn right on Travilah Rd.  Go 0.5 mile past 4-way stop sign and turn right onto McCrossin Lane.  Dave's house is 2nd one on right.


From Rockville:  head west on MD28 from I-270 interchange.  In 1/2 mile turn left on Darnestown Rd (two lanes turn left at TL).  In about 2 miles turn left onto Travilah Rd (past Great Seneca Hwy).  In 3 miles, left to remain on Travilah at T.  In 0.4 mile, bear left to remain on Travilah where Turkey Foot goes right.  In 0.4 mile left onto McCrossin Lane.  Dave's house is 2nd one on right, 12430.


From points northwest:  Access Quince Orchard Rd MD124 from either I-270 or MD28. South (or west?) on Quince Orchard, crossing MD28.  In 2.5 miles turn right at T onto Dufief Mill.  Continue straight onto Travilah Rd in 0.2 mile.  In 0.4 mile, bear left to remain on Travilah where Turkey Foot goes right.  In 0.4 mile left onto McCrossin Lane.  Dave's house is 2nd one on right, 12430.
