TOUR DE ACCOKEEK
Class All 16 mi at 5:30 PM from Accokeek Firehouse
NOTICE the later starting time. Long time mid-week club favorite. It's not too long, and it's not too short. Faster riders are welcome to speed ahead. We will go down a pretty long hill (expect to reach 35 mph or more!), and of course, what goes down must go up, so there's Barrys Hill Road after the rest stop at the Marshall Hall Boat Landing on the shore of the Potomac River. Come out and join the fun! https://ridewithgps.com/routes/12340169.
Directions: Take Md 210 south approximately 10 mi. from the beltway. Go right on Livingston Road at the Accokeek Rd 373 light (B&J Carryout). The fire station is on right after about 3/4 mi. Park toward the back.[16111 Livingston Rd, Accokeek, MD]
