Note... After the Run we will be heading to the Capital City Brewery located in Downtown, D.C. at 1100 New York Avenue, NW (202 628-2222) for some beer and food... This is to lessen the impact on lots of Audi drivers on my personal beer supply at my apartment
You can get directions, etc. at the link below.
Here is the soon to be famous River Road run... an 85 mile round-trip that is turning out to be quite the gem. We will modify the route as time goes on to maximize the fun... Currently it includes plenty of curves and straight country roads. On Saturday, June 1st, we will meet at Starbucks at 2pm, leave soon afterwards via the GW Parkway and re-group before we start the run at the starting point.
