Come to the Annual Nokesville Picnic Ride! Sunday, August 28th

Welcome New Members, Current Members, and Not-yet members!

Come out to the Nokesville, Virginia, countryside on Sunday, August 28th for a day of riding and fun ending with a picnic! Now in its 19th year, this annual gathering has grown into one of Potomac Pedalers’ largest events, regularly drawing over 200 riders of all ages and abilities. As always, it’s open to everyone—new, old, and nonmembers.

This is a multi-class ride with something for everyone, with rides ranging from 11-53 miles, covering classes from A to D. It’s a great way to meet people who are not in your usual ride class. (Three couples who met at past Nokesville Picnics have gotten married!) After the ride we’ll gather at the pavilion for food. Once again, Baja Fresh will be bringing burritos for everyone. We will supply the drinks, plates, cutlery, etc. Everyone is encouraged to bring a side dish—salad, chips, other dishes or desserts to share—which always results in an excellent potluck selection! We are stressing going “green” at this picnic by encouraging lots of recycling and reuse. Feel free to bring your own reusable plates or utensils to keep trash at a minimum.

Although we hope for a lovely day, this event is rain or shine. The pavilion is large and quite nice, so don’t be discouraged if we happen to have bad weather—we’ll all stay nice and dry under cover in the pavilion. An information table will be available before and after the rides to answer questions anyone might have about each ride option, or how to join the club.

Ride Information: For complete ride details including precise start times, route information, Garmin links, and detailed directions, see the Ride Schedule.

 Directions: Nokesville is located approximately 40 minutes from the beltway in southern Prince William County (12560 Aden Road, Nokesville, VA 20181). Allow extra time as rides start promptly at the advertised times and will give riders extra time needed to park, etc.
