Proteus Rides:

Rides are not supported. Riders participate at their own risk. Bring tools for changing flat tires, a Metro Farecard or cellphone (in case you have an unfixable mechanical problem or otherwise need to be bailed out on the road) food and water and gear for changes in weather. Please take personal responsibility for your own safety and obey all traffic laws and trail rules. HELMETS REQUIRED!! All rides meet at Proteus unless otherwise noted. Children must be able to ride independently on 2 wheels or on a parents bike (e.g. Ibert, trailer).

Weekly Rides:

The rides below (usually) occur on a weekly basis. However, sometimes we cancel for bad weather or we take a destination ride instead. Any specialty rides will show up on our Google calendar, Facebook and newsletter. Always check the calendar to be sure if a ride is going and the time.

NOTE -- We ride all winter long, but not all rides will go each week, and the times may be modified. Always check the Google calendar and the Facebook page for ride details the day before. -Jeff

Join us for our annual Thanksgiving day road ride. We like to get out on our bikes to increase our metabolic rate for a few hours after the turkey is in and before the feasting begins! Intermediate paced ride (14-16 mph), on low traffic roads in the Henry A. Wallace Beltsville Agricultural Research Center. If this is your first road ride - or you're not sure what 15 mph feels like, then this isn't the ride for you. Try our Sunday morning coffee ride instead - easy pace, no drop, mostly flat.... great for beginner group riders
