I live in Falls Church. I need to wait until Monday to find out my Tuesday working schedule, but maybe we can meet up somewhere.

Cool, just let me know. Shoot me an email and we'll catch up. I usually ride from my house in Pimmit Hills to meet up with the others down by Panera Bread, where the W&OD crosses Great Falls Rd. It's usually a good meeting point, easy on, easy off.

Well, he says that I've been riding in this area for quite a while and don't know about WUSS and so on. Since he has no clue about bikes whatsoever and doesn't own one I am sure he is not part of WUSS. But I thought I'd try to google "WUSS", but nothing came up.
Then I check if there are any new posts on the forum and run into yours...

Funny!

Like so? This sighting was up at State College, Pee-A at the SSWC.

BTW, for any interested parties, DmofoT is a eunuch.

It would probably be easier to meet in Pimmit Hills, since that's where I live, too.

hey just wanted to say that I picked up my suburban from the farm this weekend and will be ready to haul bikes and people up to the century on friday.

I'm leaving the dC area pretty early as I want to set up my camp site before dusk.

Give me a call if you need a ride. I think I have space for one more person.

oh,, and

ridey. it'll be VA - DC - MD - DC and so on... not hilly, but fairly far. I'd expect 15+. I'll be fixed, but there will be gearheads coming as well.

That means I'm mad fast too, even though I was drafting, and riding my geared bike - my fixed still has a disc wheel and a really big gear on it...
