          Washington DC Tour with Baseball Games

    Join us for a fun weekend touring DC and going to Washington Nationals baseball games.  The Nationals stadium has free bike valet parking where you lock your bike in a guarded special location just inside the stadium.  Feel free to join us for all or part of the trip.  Details on tickets, as well as cue sheets and maps, will be provided when the trip gets closer.

    Saturday (20 miles) – Meet at Best Western on Glebe Rd at 10 am.  Cycle to the baseball game (10 miles each way) for a noon game vs the Cubs.  Cycle around the National Mall and monuments after the game.

    Sunday (50 miles) – Cycle the Mt. Vernon Trial to Old Town Alexandria for breakfast then back to DC to cycle through Rock Creek Park (closed to traffic on weekends).  Stop for lunch near the White House, ride the amazing bike lane down the middle of Pennsylvania Ave, and continue on to the Nationals stadium for a 4pm game vs the Cubs.  Cycle back to the hotel after the game and then drive home.

    Friday (optional) – Check with Paul about driving to DC on Friday and cycling part of the W&OD Trail and perhaps the C&O Towpath.

    TBA Bike to the Tides

    Join TBA to watch our Norfolk Tides take on the Toledo Mud Hens at Harbor Park.

    WHAT:
    Ride to and from Harbor Park and watch the baseball game.

    WHEN?
    June 28th, game time is 1:00pm, ride start times will vary depending on location and pace.

    HOW MUCH?
    TBA member - $10; Non-member - $13.

    This is a great deal for box seat tickets as the standard price is $15.75. We must close registration on June 17th to get this special rate.

    HOW DOES THE RIDE WORK?
    Ride leaders will depart various locations to arrive for the game. For example, Bill Hart will lead a D pace social ride to the game. The ride will depart from Northside Middle School, 8720 Granby St, Norfolk at 11:00am. Riders joining Bill should arrive at Harbor Park at noon. Also, some riders are talking about a ride to the game from Virginia Beach and maybe catching the Tide from Newtown Rd. Ride leaders are needed, so please consider volunteering to lead a ride.

    Several days before the game, registered riders will be emailed details on all ride start locations and times so riders can join a ride to the park.

    Rides to the park are free and based on ride leader availability. Riders must wear helmets. 

    WHERE DO WE PUT OUR BIKES:
    Bike parking will be provided by the Downtown Norfolk Council (DNC). DNC will setup portable bike racks to accommodate 70 bikes. The bike racks will be located outside the park but near an entrance to the facility.

    Bike locks are STRONGLY encouraged. TBA is not responsible for stolen bikes.

    HOW DO I GET MY GAME TICKET?
    Your game ticket will be left at Will Call and a picture ID will be required to pick up your ticket.

    NO CANCELLATIONS FOR THIS EVENT. IF THE BALL GAME IS RAINED OUT, OUR GROUP WILL BE RESCHEDULED LATER THIS SUMMER. THE RESCHEDULED GAME WILL LIKELY BE AN EVENING GAME. UNFORTUNATELY, REFUNDS ARE NOT PERMITTED FOR RAINED OUT EVENTS EVEN IF YOU CANNOT MAKE THE RESCHEDULED GAME DAY.

    WHAT ELSE:
    I want to come to the game but I don't want to ride my bike to get there. Can I still buy a ticket and join TBA? YES. Please do buy a ticket and join us for the social fun at the park.

    This year's traditional TBA 4th of July Ride and Social will be held once again at Northwest River Park on Indian Creek Rd. in the City of Chesapeake.  Gates at the park open at 8:00 am and rides will depart promptly at 8:30 am from the large group shelter area.  Riders can choose between two different route distance options - a 20-mile route and a 40-mile route.  You can choose to go at your own pace or to ride with a group.  Afterwards there will be an informal social gathering at the shelter.
