Kick-off Ride (100,75,50) Nov 7, 2015 for Roundabout Century 2016

"Kick-Off" Ride for Next April 's Roundabout Century 2016

Some amazing cycling folks braved the all day rain and dropping temperatures to ride the "kick-off" Roundabout Century ride including some that did a full century (100 miles) from The Bike Rack in DC out to Purcellville,VA and finish at the Lincoln Memorial in DC.  Others did 50 mile routes out to Reston, VA and back to DC. The routes were along the Custis and W&OD trails.  Rain and wet leaves meant for a slower pace (safe is better than fast) but the rain and cold made it a challenging... but still totally fun ride.  Some folks stopped along the 100 miles at bike shops to purchase rain and cold weather gear, coffee and anything to keep dry and warmer!  Some even stopped at Caboose Brewing in Vienna,VA to stay dry and warm up.Yum!
