Outdoor sports are inherently dangerous and accidents will happen. By joining the club or participating in any events posted on the GayOutdoors web page you are taking responsibility for your own safety and well-being.

Be Prepared: Please be prepared to be self-sufficient. Have your own provisions such as first aid kit, food, water, extra clothing for unplanned weather, etc. Have your EMERGENCY CONTACT SHEET completed and in your backpack; it may save your life, and help reach someone who greatly cares!
Pace: There may be activities when the group is either slower or faster than your current ability. Please know that because this is a group activity, it's hard to accommodate everyone's pace perfectly. Our desire is not to leave anyone, however there have been times when it is in the best interest of all to split up. Please do your part by knowing your own abilities, communicating with the organizer head of time if you would like to start early and have us catch up or fine with finishing on your own.
Summary

If you don’t have a bike, I have access to extra bikes.  Road bikes or Mountain Bikes are acceptable for this ride.

VA Capital Trail http://vctf.maps.arcgis.com/apps/MapSeries/index.html?appid=e6e8a7a48ace4906880857508845a4be

Moderate trail ride of 26 miles from Charles City County Courthouse (Mile Marker 20) to Chickahominy River (Mile Marker 7).  This is an easy 13 miles down and 13 miles back.  If we average 10 mph, it will take 1 hour 20 minutes down and 1 hour 20 minutes back. There are a few hilly sections, but mostly flat, paved trail.

Afterwards, we can have a nice meal at Cul's Courthouse Grille which has an awesome 3 layer lemon coconut cake.

Bring at least 2 liters of water and a few snacks. 

Driving directions to the location and spot to meet at:

Meet at 9:30 am at 10780 Courthouse Rd, Charles City, VA. 23030.  I’ll have a 2000 White Honda Accord.  This parking lot is a little off the main road, Rt 5 (John Tyler Highway) and is part of Charles City County municipal offices.
