Tom and all -

I've never been to Carolina Brothers, mostly because I prefer Texas or Memphis style BBQ over Carolina style. Ashburn is in the very developed Eastern part of Loudoun, and while you can ride there, the roads are, indeed, very congested. The Western part of Leesburg is much less developed.

As for other area BBQ, there are a couple good choices. Red, Hot & Blue is a local chain with about six or so locations around the region. There's a RH&B about a 5 minute walk from the hotel. It has a wide range of food, but their BBQ is pretty good and there's always blues playing through the sound system. There is another local BBQ legend called BZ's that used to be in Leesburg at a tiny little (yes, it's that small) place called Mighty Midget Kitchen. The MMK was recently sold, and the BBQ guy (BZ?) set up shop out near the Fairgrounds just West of Leesburg in a lean-to and tent, with picnic tables. Everything is cooked outdoors. The beauty of BZ's now is that it's about a quarter mile off the W&OD bike path, maybe a mile from the Fairgrounds, maybe 6 miles from the hotel. A couple of our plotted rides goes right past BZ's. Ride cue-sheets will be available beginning on Friday at the hotel. We'll also have a little map of the area around the hotel, showing all the "good-eats" close by.

Four short days left!
