2009 Polar Bear Ride 1 Jan 09, VA to MD.
The Potomac Area Road Riders (PARR) group has terminated its Polar Bear ride, which ran for 25 years: http://www.potomacarearoadriders.org/KILLPolarBear.aspx
. I felt a BMW rider should be the person to pick up the dropped baton.
Please join me for a ride beginning at the IHOP Restaurant at 6655 Arlington Blvd., Falls Church, VA 22042-3002, going Northwest to Waterford, VA., across White's Ferry (if it's operating) (this is where General Lee's army crossed in 1862 before Antietam and in 1863 before Gettysburg) and running mostly back roads to the Rockville Hooters. They have several HDTVs on which to watch football that afternoon, and I obtained a commitment from the manager for a 20% discount for registered riders. Buy your $15 tickets on eBay (item # 170286991701) using Paypal. Revenues exceeding costs will be donated to the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation of the U. S.
