This is a beautiful ride through horse country in northern Baltimore County.  It travels 22 miles to a High's in Madonna for a snack break.  In 44 miles of riding, there is only one bad road, Route 23, which can be avoided by adding 1 1/2 miles to our circuit.  I'm starting at the Oregon Ridge Nature Center because of the Hot August Blues Festival at Oregon Ridge.  The access road to the nature center is right behind the Oregon Grille restaurant at Beaver Dam and Shawan Rds.  Rain will cancel the ride.

The forecast calls for sunny skies with highs in the upper 80s. 



Casual - North Point Peninsula - 9:00 am - 22 mi - Bob Carson,   410-828-8604,   bikebob@comcast.net
START: 7514 North Point Rd Edgemere -- Ride Terrain: Flat,  Ride Leader's Pace: 11 mph,  Regrouping: Some,  Rest Stops: Snack,  Rain Cancellation: Precipitation >60%,

Description:   An easy ride of 22 miles on flat roads. The roads are two lane without shoulders. There could be some traffic, but not too heavy. Visit Fort Howard, North Point State, Black Marsh Wildlands, Swan Point, and Bay Shore. ?

Directions:  From the North, take the Baltimore Beltway I-695 to Exit 42. Onto North Point Rd (not Boulevard) toward Edgemere and Fort Howard. In about 1 mile the Food Lion will be on your left.

From the South, take the I-695  across the Key Bridge to Exit 43. Get on Bethlehem Boulevard to its end at an intersection. Cross North Point Blvd at traffic light onto North point Rd towards Fort Howard. Turn left into the Food Lion parking lot.

This is a nice ride over very familiar roads.  We ride 25 miles before stopping at a High's on Route 30 for a snack break.  The ride can easily be shortened by 5 miles by skipping a loop before the rest stop.  The 19-mile return is mostly easy so the group tends to fly back.  I'm offering this ride because it doesn't start at Oregon Ridge which is hosting the Hot August Blues Festival.  Rain will cancel the ride.
