This ride is intended for strong riders looking to go hard. Ride leaders pace will be 17+ and I will not sweep the ride so please be sure to print a cue sheet. Most of the time though the group fans out so you shouldn't be riding alone. Come on out as the weather should be really nice plus we get to stop for some coffee and pastries!

(NOW ON SUNDAY FOR WEATHER REASONS)
I have looked over the forecasts and feel that it would be best to move this ride to Sunday as the weather looks to be much better than today. Sorry for the change! Hope to see you all tomorrow!

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!

This is a fast paced, full drop team training ride, but all are welcome to attend. A compact loop designed to attack the steepest gradients in the city in quick succession.

The route has been modified slightly from last year, please check the map for details. Additionally, we will no longer be stopping to regroup. The pace between climbs will remain neutral to give everyone a chance to catch up, but we will no longer stop and wait after each climb.

The Roddy Bridge has been magnificently restored to allow us to enjoy the full trifecta of three covered bridges again on this club favorite designed by Lanny & Linda Evans. It's a pleasant, scenic, low traffic route with just a little over 2000 feet of climbing distributed over the whole route.

There are options for lunch in Thurmont, but the ride leader will be snacking at Sheetz mid-ride and considering a post ride lunch at the Panera Bread nearby. There are well kept port-a-potties at the ride start and along the route at Loy's Station Park and other locations.

It's worth the hour ride from the Towson area! From the Baltimore beltway, proceed west on I-70 to Route 15 North, then turn right onto Old Frederick Road for a short distance, with Utica Park coming up on the left. We assemble near the port-a-potties.

The ride leader hopes to post RideWithGPS info before the ride.

All Pace Long - Chesapeake Beach Ride - 8:00 am - 102 mi - bob wagner,   ,   bobwag@gmail.com
START: dixon bwi -- Ride Terrain: Rolling,  Ride Leader's Pace: 15 mph,  Regrouping: Frequent,  Rest Stops: Lunch,  Rain Cancellation: Go No Matter What,

This route is always a nice followup to M2M. It usually attracts a sizable group of speedy riders who start from BWI. I like to ride in from Baltimore and take it easy. There are a couple hilly sections on this route, but mostly it’s a flat and fast tour of Anne Arundel county roads and the western Chesapeake coastline. Coming?

 DETAILS:

 

IMPORTANT: There will be an earlier alternate start for those wanting to begin from Baltimore. Meet @7AM at Carroll Park (south corner). We will ride 11 miles to the BWI start.

10 - 12 mph - Galesville - Jazzercycle - 11:00 am - 19 mi - George Clinton,   410-507-1710,   georgeclinton4591@gmail.com
START: Carrie Weedon Science Center 911 Galesville Rd, Galesville, MD --  Ride Leader's Pace: 10 mph,  Regrouping: None,  Rest Stops: None,  Rain Cancellation: Precipitation >60%,

Description: Begin and end on the waterfront in rural Galesville on the West River.  We will ride at a leisurely bicycle pace about 10-12 mph. The path is approximately 18 miles in length with a cutoff to go ~13 miles..  (Optional) Finish this relaxing social setting with fine food at Pirate’s Cove Restaurant.  If the weather is nice we may eat at their “Tiki bar/grill” outside of Pirates Cove.  A bicycle helmet is required as for all bike rides.   The Jazzercycle name came from when jazz bands would play at the local restaurants at lunch and we’d ride, and then eat to jazz music.  The jazz bands are gone yet we’ve kept the name and the bike ride tradition.  There are no convenient rest stops along this relatively rural path.  There are porta-potties at the Carrie Weedon Center and bathrooms at a High's store nearby where Muddy Creek Road intersects Galesville Road (Rt. 255).  

 

Directions: Carrie Weedon Center – take Rt. 2 South, left on 255 Galesville – cross Muddy Creek Road and park at Carrie Weedon Science Center on right .05 mile.  .  The parking lot entrance is past a park on the right and just past a Hardesty funeral home.

16 And Over - The Full Monty QB - 9:30 am - 41 mi - Steve Zeldin,   410-812-6816,   szeldin@comcast.net
START: ORR - Oregon Ridge Park -- Ride Terrain: Rolling With Hills,  Ride Leader's Pace: 16 mph,  Regrouping: Some,  Rest Stops: Snack,  Rain Cancellation: Precipitation >60%,

Double pastry ride because we have not been getting enough goodies lately or because whatever...

A nice mid-distance ride, ideal for a weekday morning.  QB is for the Quaker Bottom return.  (2900 Ft) There are some long sections and a certain amount of riding discipline rather than speed will see the riders with a fast completion.  Does the entire Hampstead to Hereford via Mt Carmel Rd (the full MONTY) section with only one Stop Sign in 11.4 miles. Tuesday riders have done this section in under 30 minutes.

Snack a little early at Snickerdoodles at mile 17-ish to fuel before the Mt Carmel push.  And then we snack late at The Filling Station at mile 32-ish.

Come join the fun!

We ride the BBC Summer Picnic 16&Over Version of the Two Taverns Ride (2017).  Check Calendar/Forums for any weather related changes - a different ride or day may be offered in event of excessive heat or rain. 

Park/start at the small lot off Playground Rd.  This is a pre-ride for the picnic, so we may encounter route detours and other cuesheet irregularities.   If you are desperate for early tentative cuesheet or course file, then send Steve an email.

While the picnic riders tend to ride this all-out, the Tuesday riders are a bit more relaxed.  This means regrouping, especially after bursts of enthusiasm, and otherwise a conversational 16+ ride.

Ride has first snack break at the Subway (or 7-11) in Biglerville (mile 28).
Then a second break for Ice Cream at the KOA Campgrounds at mile 41.  This is a great stop!

Come join the fun!

All Pace Long - The Best Ride Ever - 9:00 am - 62 mi - Larry Kenney,   410.830.0709,   larry.kenney.7@gmail.com
START: TMP -- Ride Terrain: Flats And Hills,  Ride Leader's Pace: 12 mph,  Regrouping: Some,  Rest Stops: Snack,  Rain Cancellation: Precipitation >60%,

 

Phil Mangers Beautiful Ride with similar terrain to the Two Taverns Ride.  Starts from Taneytown Memorial Park (entrance opposite Harney Road).  Exact metric century from Taneytown through Bonneauville, Biglerville, Fairfield and Emmitsburg.  Terrain is flat-to-rolling, scenery is gorgeous, roads are low-traffic, and there are plenty of restaurants and stores.

This is a great ride for 10-12 riders that want to build endurance for upcoming century rides.

The ride will not be swept.

Team BBC - Bumpy Belt Loop - 6:00 pm - 26 mi - Ian Jackson,   8307086424,   porus07@gmail.com
START: 1813 Falls Road -- Ride Terrain: Hilly,  Ride Leader's Pace: 16 mph,  Regrouping: None,  Rest Stops: None,  Rain Cancellation: Precipitation >60%,

Bumpy Belt Loop returns in 2017 with a vengeance!

Ride departs 6pm sharp from Baltimore Bicycle Works, 1813 Falls Road. Please pack lights.

This is a fast paced, full drop team training ride, but all are welcome to attend. A compact loop designed to attack the steepest gradients in the city in quick succession.

The route has been modified slightly from last year, please check the map for details. Additionally, we will no longer be stopping to regroup. The pace between climbs will remain neutral to give everyone a chance to catch up, but we will no longer stop and wait after each climb. If you find yourself getting dropped, please take advantage of the shortcuts built into the loop to catch back on!

Please respect the neutral pace between climbs. Attacks are encouraged but only if they are on hills!

The ride officially ends at the top of Bellemore. Retrace the route back to the shop if you're ready to quit, or repeat Bellemore with the leaders until everyone is gathered for a group selfie.
