    Ride Suggestions for 12/31 in N. VA/DC

    I'll be in town this coming New Year's weekend and want to get some mileage in. My ride window will only be Sunday morning. I used to live in the area (30+ years) but never got into riding more than the occassional Mt Vernon/WOD/4-Mile Run paths. Are there any organized rides Sunday morning in the N. VA or DC area? Any links to club websites with calendars?
    As of now, I'm thinking of bringing up my roadie and/or cross to ride either the Mt Vernon trails or hit Wakefield trail (it's been about 10 years since I've been at Wakefield but if I remember correctly, that should be very doable on a cross bike - minus some of the singletrack offshoots).
    Happy New Year and Go Hokies!

    PPTC schedule for the weekend. http://www.bikepptc.org/ride_schedul....html#Dec31Sun
    and the Oxon Hill Club http://ohbike.org/rides/200612.html
    I'll probably do the Bellhaven ride Saturday morning and rest/party on Sunday.
    Sunday looks like it has a few choices, although some are a bit of a drive.
    If you were still around Monday, there's the annual Haines Point ride.

    Wakefield trail is still there. Easy on a cross. Even some of the single tracks shouldn't be a problem. Last year they opened a new segment along the Accotink Creek north of Wakefield, connecting it the the trail to route 50. You could ride from Lake Accotink to Fairfax Circle, then take the Connector Trail and streets to the W&OD at Vienna Community Center.
