Location: Wegmans 2281 Carl D. Silver Parkway, Fredericksburg, VA 22401
Join the ride leader for a ~20 mile NIGHT ride on bike trails and downtown city streets in Fredericksburg. We will depart from the Wegmans parking lot near the light pole marked with a #9 placard at 6:30pm sharp. If the temperature is 35 degrees or less at the start of the ride, the ride will be cancelled.
Mandatory equipment includes a functioning headlight (that can light the road commensurate with your speed), a tail light (steady mode, not flashing), and warm cycling clothes. Reflective clothing is also highly recommended. Expect to be cycling until 8:00 pm while the temperature drops throughout ride. The group will stay together and obey all traffic and trail rules.
Intermediate bike handling skills are required and the ability to stay together as a group with an average pace of 16 mph (at night in the city and on trails this is equivalent to about ~18mph on the open road).
Contact the ride leader with questions before the ride. The leader reserves the right to prohibit any rider from participating that does not have the proper equipment or skills.
The bike trail on Fall Hill Ave has been completed, but the maps have not been update to reflect this. We will ride on the bike path and not on Fall Hill Ave.
