|FIRST...I'm new to cycling
I just bought a Fuji Cross and I love it. I was wondering if there is anyone out there from Northern Virginia. I'm looking for a club or someone that that knows some good places to go and maybe even want someone to ride with.
Also I posted a few questions over the past couple of weeks and I want to say thanks for everyone that responded. Everyone's imput,help, and advice was priceless.

|I'll second the bikepptc.org recommendation. Potomac Pedalers has rides all the time and at all levels and distances. If you want a really focused racing program you should look elsewhere but from the original post I'd say this is a very good place to start.|

|...look up the Lardbutts. We ride most Sundays from Ft. Hunt Park. It's a small but feisty group. If you're interested, e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Potomac Pedlers has rides all over the place. However, the great untapped area for riding in the Washington area is probably over in Southern Maryland -- check out the Oxen Hill bike club.
And kudos on the Fuji Cross. It is an excellent bike...you will now have to race it this fall!

|... they meet monthly at the A-1 Cycling stores, alternating between Manassas and Herndon. They sponsor a cyclocross series.
I live in Manassas, and you're welcome to ride with me if you don't mind how SLOW I am. There are a handful of others of us scattered about the area.

Though we're primarily a roadie club, we've got quite a few GOOD cyclocrossers.
If you want to meet some of us, we'll be out in force this Sunday hosting the Reston Town Center Grand Prix.
