Shenandoah
WHEN: July 7-9
WHERE: Mt. Jackson, VA

Dreaming of summer, a cool mountain breeze, and spending some time poolside? Then mark your calendars for the Potomac Pedalers Shenandoah Valley Weekend, July 7-9. Based in Mt. Jackson, Virginia, the area is a fabulously bucolic place for cyclists - no sprawl, little traffic and plenty of corn! Enjoy  scenic rides, mountain views, creeks, and a top-notch covered bridge.  You'll have the opportunity to explore nearby vineyards, the Mt. Jackson Arts Museum, the Rt. 11 Potato Chip factory, antique stores, Bryce resort, Shenandoah Caverns, Civil War battlefields; go duckpin bowling; or just lounge by the pool! Come see why we call it summer camp for adults!
Carlisle2** Registration Open! **

WHEN: August 11-13
WHERE: Carlisle, PA

Carlisle weekend registration is open.  The rides will remain in the same idyllic location of rolling farms, where you will have choices of a number of mileage options, with big climbs or just the lovely rolling country-side. We will also be riding through Boiling Springs! We had fun riding to a local brewery last year on Friday afternoon and seeing a historic Molly Pitcher monument.

If you have a non-cycling partner attending with you, there is LOTS to do! The Appalachian Trail is very close by, as well as the Guilford Pinchot state park.
Carlisle is the county seat for Cumberland County, it's a very attractive town for cycling and walking.

Saturday, July 1
This is a training ride for beginning women riders with the goal of riding one of the Back Road Century routes in September. We'll take it easy as we go up the Capital Crescent trail and then loop through some of Bethesda and back down the trail. We won't drop anyone along the way.

Karen's Birthday Ride
Sun day, July 2
A classic ride to Taylorsville. We take in my favorite road (in the correct direction) Bloom Road. Two rest stops on the 67, and one on the 50. It is a bit hilly so bring your climbing legs. 
___________________________________

Most of us have family obligations; be it a cookout, pool time, relatives, etc on the holiday. But we still want to get a ride in. So, meet your "partners in crime" at LAV for an 8am start to the day. This is a just a moderately hilly ride for Laytonsville with none of the killer climbs.
