******************
The Ride : Detail
******************
For your riding pleasure NoVA CBG presents the Peach Tree Loop.

Please note that this is a MEDIUM(+) ride because this route has "rolling hills". This is a "no drop" ride so if you have always wanted to try riding a hillier ride this is the one to do as it is only 27(ish) miles total.

The first hill is "right out of the gate" and then the rest are rolling. The first half of the ride is all about the "rolling hills" with an elevation increase from 200 to 550 ft. The second half of the ride is still about the "rolling hills" but we are coming down from our high point so mainly downhill back to our starting point.

There will be two "regrouping" stops:
1) Boyds Market: Mile 9.7
15110 Barnesville Rd, Boyds, MD 20841 (P[masked]

2) Market (address tbd) - alter route to stop at market

The last parking lot, all the way at the end of the road has a port-o-potty.
Let's meet there.

NOTE: PLEASE GIVE YOURSELF TIME TO GET HERE, DO NOT THINK "OH, I'LL HAVE PLENTY OF TIME TO GET THERE." THIS IS ONE OF THOSE STARTING LOCATIONS THAT YOU NEED TO PLAN A LITTLE EXTRA TIME TO FIND AND MAKE SURE YOU GOT IT RIGHT.

An RSVP of 'YES' is your digital signature and means you have read and understood MEETUP.com's "Terms of Service : Section 6. Release " found at https://www.meetup.com/terms/ and NOVA-CBG's "Assumption of Risk Agreement" found @ https://www.meetup.com/novacbg/photos/26152775/467307124/ or https://www.meetup.com/novacbg/pages/1942951/NOVA-CBG_Waiver/.

Remember that helmets are required to participate in all NOVA-CBG rides. NO Helmet, NO ride, NO exceptions. All riders ride at their own risk and with the understanding that cycling is an inherently dangerous activity. When coming to the meetup you do so voluntarily and are ready and able to participate in the ride as described under the conditions of the day.

Be on time for the "pre-ride" preparation. This is when we check to make sure you have all the required equipment and that your bike is ready for the ride. We will review basic safety instruction for group riding as well as other important topics. If you do not attend the pre-ride preparation you will not be allowed to participate on the ride.
