Lights - Bring em. 300 Lumens minimum. 600 is better. Some folks are running 1200 to 2k these days.

We meet at 6:30 and start riding at 6:45. Plan on having a light that can run for at least go for 2 hours at this point. We generally finish this time of year between 8 and 8:30 depending on which group you are out with.

Usually we are having 3 groups at least out, with a Casual, Casual Plus, and Intermediate.

Requirements:
Functioning Bike!
Lights are needed!
Helmet ---- No helmet = No Ride!
Hydration!

Riders are strongly urged to purchase a hydration pack and use it. A single water bottle is not sufficient, even in cold temperatures.

Location:
The ride starts near the Wakefield Park recycling bins, located in the parking lot of the Audrey Moore Recreation Center. Please park near the large green recycle bins. Click the thumbnail below for an overhead image of park entrance/starting area.

Good news - Accotink season is 1 week away. Hopefully starting March 15 we will be riding again. With the time change that means we can ride till about 7:40PM at least.
