Join @PotomacPedalers for a Tour de France Happy Hour!

When:  Thursday, July 14, 6 PM – 9 PM
Where:  Rhodeside Grill
1836 Wilson Blvd
Arlington, VA 22201

Join @PotomacPedalers and your cycling friends to watch Stage 12 of the Tour de France! On Bastille Day, Stage 12 travels 184 kilometers from MONTPELLIER to MONT VENTOUX, the top of The Bald Mountain. An arrival at Mont Ventoux is guaranteed to bring spectacle – the variable weather and mythic climb instills fear and is sure to be an exciting stage!

From CyclingStage.com: “The climb up Mont Ventoux is 15.7 kilometres at an average grade of 8.8%, which is remarkably high for such a long climb. It starts with a 14 kilometres passage through the forest. When the trees disappear the riders navigate the famous moonscape, meaning the elements are free to roam (and roar). What type of weather it is on the 14th of July, the bare top section of the Ventoux is always a torrent.”

We’ll have appetizers and a cash bar. Rhodeside Grill is 2 blocks from the Courthouse Metro; there is a small parking lot adjacent to the restaurant.

We look forward to seeing you!
