FBC Fall BBQ and Picnic

Join the Frederick Bicycle Coalition for our first annual Fall Picnic and Bike Rides taking place on Sunday, October 10, 2010.

The picnic will take place at Cunningham Falls State Park in the large pavilion in the Manor area. The road rides will leave from the same location, the mountain bike rides will start at the Sand Flats Parking area of the Frederick Watershed.

FBC will provide burgers and hot dogs (veggie versions too). You bring a potluck dish to share. We’ll have some adult beverages as well.

Members and non-members are welcome. You can RSVP by posting to the web site, ourFacebook page or emailing communication@frederickbicyclecoalition.com
The picnic is rain or shine, check the web site for ride information if the weather looks questionable.

About the rides:
Helmets required. The rides will start at 9am. Road rides will leave from the picnic area. Phil VanWerkhoven will lead a road ride doing rolling hills and covered bridges which will cover around 35 miles at a moderate pace. James Johnson will lead a ride up the mountain and on some of the nearby dirt roads, 25-30 miles at a relaxed pace.

The mountain bike rides will consist of two moderate rides, one will be a women’s only ride and the other will be open to all. The terrain ranges from smooth to rocky and technical with some decent climbs. The start location is approximately 7 miles from the picnic location. Following the ride we’ll head over to Cunningham Falls.

All rides will return in time for the picnic start.
