FABB Social ride wrap-up
Shortly after 10 the group headed south on Eskridge Rd toward the Cross County Trail. The trail had been flooded earlier in the week but by Saturday the water had receded. The trail alternates between potholed paved sections and gravel. Given there are so few options for traveling between Gallows and Pickett Roads south of Lee Highway there's a strong argument for paving that entire section of the CCT.
We turned onto Cottage St. and rode to Gallows Road and south past Dunn Loring Metro station to reach Lost Dog Cafe where most of us stopped for a good lunch.
We'd like to hold a few more Social Rides in the next couple of months. Thanks to everyone who came out to join the ride.
I think the best thing about social rides is you get to see an area of the county through the eyes of a cyclist who lives there and has definite opinions about what needs to be done to improve it! They have insight regarding their commutes that those of us who live further north and west might never have grasped. Thanks, Tom & Bruce!
