13 - 15 mph - New Freedom to Hanover - 9:30 am - 46 mi - Carol and Walt Russell,   443-286-5807,   cjrussell74@yahoo.com
START: NFR -- Ride Terrain: Rolling With Hills,    Regrouping: Some,  Rest Stops: Snack,  Rain Cancellation: Precipitation >60%,

START: New Freedom Rail Trail parking in New Freedom. Map information and directions are not correct on the web site - see directions below. This ride  is on scenic country roads, (no trail riding) and is a shorter variation of "Up by Hills, Back by Valleys" with fewer hills going out. We recently revised this ride and eliminated Graves Run and Hokes Rd. There are still enough hills to give you a good workout. Return route mostly through valleys with one or two short, steep climbs. Rest stop at Rutters in Hanover. Optional lunch stop at Giovanni's Italian Restaurant. Ride leaders will use Rutters for the rest stop.

Directions:  695 Beltway to 83N, drive to Exit 36, R at end of ramp on 439W, R at T - Rt 45N > Main St > Susquehanna Trail, L on Campbell Rd, R on Front St (after tracks), jog L/R at Franklin St to continue on N Front St. Park by old train station. Restrooms available.

You can use the directions for the New Freedom Rail Trail Café, 117 N. Front St. New Freedom, PA 17349



10 - 12 mph - Davidsonville to Galesville - 10:00 am - 35 mi - Mary Ryan,   443-676-0891,   meryan@comcast.net
START: Davidsonville Park & Ride -- Ride Terrain: Flats And Hills,  Ride Leader's Pace: 11 mph,  Regrouping: Some,  Rest Stops: Snack,  Rain Cancellation: Sprinkles,

Scenic ride on low traffic roads in Anne Arundel County. Park on the far right side of the Park & Ride lot (at the intersection of Rt. 50 and Davidsonville Rd.). This is not a difficult ride, but it is 35 miles, so if you haven't been on your bike yet this year, this should not be your first ride.



16 And Over - Meadowood Emory Church Loop - 44 - 10:00 am - 44 mi - Gary Kelly,   410.375.9507,   garyskelly@verizon.net
START: Meadowood Regional Park -- Ride Terrain: Flats And Hills,  Ride Leader's Pace: 16 mph,  Regrouping: Some,  Rest Stops: Snack,  Rain Cancellation: Sprinkles,

I posted this ride solely because of the weather forecast, 70+ degrees!  Woo hoo!  This is a very nice loop over familiar roads.  We'll ride 25 miles to a High's on Rt. 30 for a snack stop.  The return loop only has two hills so it tends to be a quick pace back finishing on the repaved Hillside.  The ride can easily be shortened by 5 miles by skipping a pre-rest stop loop.  Rain will cancel the ride.



Social Events - ANNUAL SPRING SOCIAL - 7:00 pm - mi - Gloria Epstein,   410 665 3012,   carlglo@verizon.net
START: Ascension Evangelical Lutheran Church 7601 York Rd Towson MD 21204 --

The ride will have many regrouping stops but no stores until near the end.  Steve will bring snack cookies for your pocket, but bring a snack for the ride as well.  There is an NCR Trail Port-a-pot at mile 36 (mile 22 on the 30 mile version).

I am still awaiting the cuesheet and this entry is being updated as we get nearer to April First.  I now know the start and I assume that we will return to the start.

All Pace Long - TMP - Accountants' Burnout Red Rum Ride - 64 Miles - 9:30 am - 64 mi - Mark Tabb,   (410) 274-8668,   marktabb@yahoo.com
START: TMP - Taneytown Memorial Park -- Ride Terrain: Rolling With Hills,    Regrouping: Some,  Rest Stops: Lunch,  Rain Cancellation: Precipitation >60%,

Red Rum Ride:

Ride leader is Mark Tabb this year with Jim Guild and/or Steve Zeldin as backups.  First 18 and last 15 is very gentle.  The rest is tough for April 19th.  Six mile climb over South Mountain at mile 18 (very hard-lots of 14% grades) and then a two mile climb back over the another side of the mountain. The six mile climb is one of my favorites and almost traffic free. Lunch at mile 42 (if open/after both climbs) or mile 56 in Emittsburg after another one mile climb. Ride leader is in the usual poor winter shape so will be lucky to finish even though the entire ride is only an 8 out of 10. Rain (or extreme winds) date is April 20th-the next day at the same time.

Jim Guild notes:

 

I changed the Red Rum cue sheet.  I rode this about a month or so after the burnout last year and like the route.  Basically there are two changes:

 

1.       It was shortened to be close to a metric (just short).  This was done by turning left on Old Forge at the top of South Mountain.  This rejoins the original cue sheet at Mentzer Gap.  The descent is really nice (and not a bad climb the other way).

2.       The section along Route 16 was taken out.  The shoulder seemed really bad last year with cutting to alarm drivers and a lot of gravel so I was forced to ride on the road itself and was very uncomfortable.  The new route takes Old Forge across Mentzer Gap with a really short section on Route 16.  The climb up to Buena Vista is on Old Route 16 which is a nice substitute to the climb on Mentzer Gap being taken out.  FYI:  If anyone wants to do the old route to Mont Alto and then incorporate the new section that eliminates Route 16 it is easy to do.  I do not plan on updating the long cue sheet at this time, but will likely take the 2016 version of the cue sheet along with the 2017 version.
