It should be a beautiful fall day so let's ride to Hampstead for pastry and coffee.  We'll pedal 23 miles to the Snickerdoodles bakery for our rest stop.  The 17-mile return is fairly easy with only a few hills before Cuba Rd.  I'm hoping for a conversational pace not a race.  Rain will cancel the ride.

This is a very pleasant ride through beautiful horse country in northern Baltimore County.  We'll ride 22 miles to a High's in Madonna for our rest stop.  Then another 22 miles back to Oregon Ridge.  The cue sheet takes us on Rt. 23 for 1.3 miles which is the only bad road on the route.  Rt. 23 can avoided with a simple detour that adds one or 2 miles.

Rain will cancel the ride.  If Oregon Ridge Lodge is blocked by a special event, we'll meet at the Oregon Ridge Nature Center.  If both are unavailable, we'll meet at the Western Run Park and Ride at Western Run and Shawan Rd.

START: Western Regional Park, Glenwood Md -- Ride Terrain: Rolling With Hills,    Regrouping: Some,  Rest Stops: Snack,  Rain Cancellation: Precipitation >60%,

 

Come on out to western Howard County for enjoyable scenic rides with a chance to socialize with club members after the ride. Bring your favorite food and drinks for yourself and to share. 
 
We are reviving the cluster all paces start for a weekend ride as we did when we had the enjoyable winter Peppercorn Rides. Unlike the Peppercorn rides where we all met at the restaurant for lunch, we will meet and eat at the end of the day's rides. These rides are a repeat of the successful first tailgate-potluck ride from May 21 this year.
 
We will use the staggered time starts as we do with the Picnic and Corn Roast rides.
Start Times:
16+ mph: 8:30 AM
13-15 mph: 9:00 AM
10-12 mph: 10:00 AM
I am estimating the riding should done by 1 pm. All of the routes allow for several shortcuts if you need one to make it in by 1 pm.
 
Distances: 16 mph+: 61 miles; 13-15 mph: 50 miles; 10-12 mph: 25 miles
 
The 16+ and 13-15 mph rides go to Damascus for a break halfway through each route; the 10-12 mph ride has a break in Lisbon.
 
Location: Western Regional Park in Glenwood, Md off Carrs Mill road adjacent to the Glenwood CC. (Be sure to park at the Western Regional Park parking lot and not the Glenwood CC.) I will attempt to secure a pavilion as we had on the previous ride. The pavilions cannot be reserved on weekends. I will direct participants to the appropriate parking at the entrance  of WRP.
 
Directions: I-70 to Rt 97 South, drive ~2 miles to Carrs Mill Rd and turn R at TL; park entrance is 0.4 miles on R

START: Meadowood Regional Park -- Ride Terrain: Rolling With Hills,  Ride Leader's Pace: 16 mph,  Regrouping: Some,  Rest Stops: Snack,  Rain Cancellation: Sprinkles,

This is a very nice loop over great, familiar roads.  We'll ride 25 miles to a High's on Route 30 for a rest stop.  The 19-mile return is pretty easy, just 2 hills, so the group tends to fly back.  A 5-mile loop before the rest stop can be skipped so the ride can be reduced to 39 miles.  Rain will cancel the ride.

We ride the full extent of Old Court Rd to Marriottsville and then return via Wards Chapel to Glyndon and Padonia to Thornton.  Five biggish climbs and a bunch of rolling for about 2600 ft.

This route has some traffic and other suburban nonsense from miles 5 to 10 as we pass through Pikesville to Randallstown.  Most of this section is broad, 4 lane roadway and at the time we will be riding we will be able to take the right lane and what little traffic there is will flow easily to our left.

Snack at Dunkin Donuts at mile 17.6 on Old Frederick Rd.  To make sure we do all of Old Court, we will start by heading east on Joppa Rd to Hunts Church which will warm us up before the Park School climb.

Come join the fun!
