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

Interested in traveling west to Bethesda, but flummoxed by the closure of the Georgetown Branch Trail for purple line construction? Join Millie this Columbus Day as she demonstrates her favorite work-around. Some comfort riding in traffic will be needed, though a lot of the route will be on trails. Be prepared for a few significant hills - both going up and coming back down. There will be a stop for a light meal in Georgetown - bring hydration/snacks. Expect an average pace of 11-13 mph. No drop, but be prepared with a metro card/cash/credit card just in case. Approximately 45 miles. Depart Proteus at 9am.
