    The Thursday Night Mixed ride is bought to you by MORE and The Bike Lane.

    Feb 16 – Think trails should be mostly ok with wind and relative cool temps. Plus wind should slow a bit by then.

    Lights! – Bring em and make sure they are charged!

    Accotink – Done for regular rides. Pre-ride only.

    Time: Rally 6 to 6:30 – Ride starts at 6:45 Sharp!
    Where We Ride: Wakefield and Accotink Park
    Location: We meet in the furthest in lot of the Audrey Moore Rec Ctr. Near the recycling containers. Look for my Silver Nissan Rogue. G’Maps Link.

    Take a look here at the Accotink Creek data from right near the bridge under 495. This is one of my main tools for judging how wet the WF/Accotink area is. Click Here!
