The Ride : Detail
For your riding pleasure, let's visit my buddy Jimmy at Jimmy's Old Town Tavern for lunch (

Why Jimmy's Old Town Tavern do you ask?? Well Jimmy is from Buffalo N.Y. just like I am (well close enough... he's from Arcade NY and I'm from North Tonawanda NY to be exact) and his fine establishment brings down some of my favorite Buffalo foods so we can enjoy them below the Mason Dixon Line.

For Example, Chicken Wings with the original Anchor Bar Wing Sauce (that he has brought down especially from Buffalo) and Beef on Weck which is essentially a hot roast beef sandwich on a special salty kimmelweck roll (that's where the WECK comes from). He offers them both in a "Buffalo Platter" with fresh cut french fries (or perogies) so that is what I'll be getting. Let's not forget about poutine fries!! YUMMY.

However, there are all kinds of great foods on the menu to enjoy whether you want a taste of Buffalo or not.

The good news is that you'll have a chance to work off those calories with the bike ride. The bad news is that you'll have to ride 8 miles after a lunch like that with a full belly so plan accordingly.

The Meeting Spot:
Vienna Elementary School
128 Center Street South, Vienna, VA

The Ride after the Ride:
There is no ride after the ride as Jimmy's is the ride WITHIN the ride.
