Family ride and National Ice Cream Day
Sun Jul 21 10a.m.
July 21 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm
This ride will be an out and back route for families and riders of all skill levels. We will keep a pace that leaves nobody behind and makes it fun and inclusive. The planned route is 12 miles. This route can easily be shortened or lengthened depending on your family’s abilities. The canal is also a great place for walkers if anyone in your family prefers not to bike, but wants to participate. See below for more details.
The ride will be from the historic Point of Rocks MARC Rail Station, along the C&O Canal to the Monocacy Aqueduct (6 miles there) and back to Point of Rocks (6 miles back). At Point of Rocks, we will have a picnic and an ice cream party to celebrate National Ice Cream Day. Please message us if you need non-dairy. We will provide the ice cream and toppings. Riders will need to provide their own lunch.
Families with inexperienced or young riders are encouraged to ride as far as they can and turn around at any point.
Walkers are also encouraged to join us.
The ice cream and picnic will begin about 12pm. We will make a decision at the start of the ride if we will picnic by the Community Commons or by the Potomac River, based on weather and space availability.
