        Maybe have some more permenent page that describe all the group rides in the area with links to the web sites of the group and what type of rides they do (road, mtb, leasurly social ,…)?

        Some students and grad students have cars so they may be interested in PPTC or Oxen Hill (http://www.ohbike.org/) rides. Others may want to take the metro into DC and go on rides there like the ones hosted by the Bike Rack (http://www.bikerackdc.com/ and easy to get to from the green line by getting off at Howard) I just do road biking but I’m sure there are mountain biking groups around too.

        May help encorage more people to go out biking and maybe have more local group rides

    Wed afternoons at Ivy lane in Greenbelt:

    Friday morning from Buddy Attic Park in Greenbelt

    And weekend rides in the area at times. (more details on their web site)

    Mostly aimed at road cyclists (although still possible to go fast enough on a hybrid)
