    Good to see several forum members out to ride the Parkway. We’ll hopefully do it again in the future.



    The Tour de Mount Vernon was a lot of fun. Thanks to the effort of all the volunteers and organizations that helped put this on. Over a years worth of planning and doing to make the ride a success. There were over 500 riders who got to enjoy riding on the GW Parkway from Mount Vernon to the Belle Haven Marina. Quite a spectacle to see all the riders spread out over 4 lanes of the Parkway. All should add this ride on their list of rides for next year.
