This is a great ride that travels 28 miles to a Sheetz in Manchester for a rest stop. There is one hill after another from mile 17 to mile 28. After the rest stop, the ride is much easier terrain-wise. 51 miles is very challenging for February unless we don't race and instead enjoy the crazy warm temperatures!
With warmer temps predicted how about this nice Harford Co. ride? Varied scenery; stop in Havre de Grace for snack (Royal Farms) or lunch (La Cucina). I-95 N to Exit 80, turn L at end of ramp for about 1.2 miles to church on L (easy to miss!) Harford Community Church 2408 Creswell Rd. 21015Web Link: www.baltobikeclub.org
Ride start Veloccino Bike/ Coffee shop. Rolling ride thru low traffic roads. Come out and ride. ????????????
March 1st and some how we did not get to do a Leap Day Ride this year either due to weather or just bad luck with the calendar (it is 2018 after all). We ride a "semi-retro" yet revised further from the 2007 version of Teacher Bob's Old York Field Trip. Break at High's in Whitehall at mile 20.
Please check Calendar/Forums for changes or cancellations for weather.
DO NOT MISS THE OPPORTUNITY... ...DO NOT MISS THE FUN!
We've had only 2 pancake rides since Oct. 1st because of the very cold weather. Let's hope for better conditions for the next 3 months. We'll ride to Woodsboro VFC for an 'all you can eat' buffet (mi. 17 on the 33 mi. route and mi. 23 on the 39 mi. route). Menu items include pancakes, scrambled eggs, French toast, bacon, potatoes, fruit, juice, coffee & more. Relax & socialize while enjoying a scrumptious meal before heading back to Taneytown E.S. Check the ride schedule/forum for last minute updates (i.e. start time, different ride).
March 15th ride where we do a nice ride to a Cafe and discuss the soothsayers forecast. (During Caesar's parade on the feast of Lupercal, a soothsayer warns Caesar to "Beware the ides of March", a warning he disregards.)
A 9:30am departure has Caesar telling Brutus that the return will be "at two". Starting Hillside to Park Hts. Check Calendar/Forums/Other Auspacies* for any weather related changes. Come join the fun!
*Other Auspices may include:
ex caelo; ex avibus; ex tripudiis; ex quadrupedibus; & ex diris Being partial to Cathartes aurae, I will use vultures to help determine any ride schedule changes.
