NSC has been a long time supporter of Greenbelt and the Tour de Greenbelt. 

Hurricane Lee caused the cancellation of their festive ride this year and we are happy to be riding the 50 mile Tour de Greenbelt road route on Tuesday Sept 19. 

PARKING-For September 19 please DO NOT park in the usual field.  Park next to the new equipment garage out back. Pass the two barns, pass the parking lot (where the big tent usually goes), and then you'll see the shed and an open field on your left. The ground there stays a lot more solid than the other field!

PORTA-POTTY - there is a porta potty in the upper parking lot
