Ride Starts

Ride Starts

          On today's ride I fortuitously found a great rest stop in Butler.  It had restrooms, shade, event style bike racks, air conditioning, and even a bike pavilion complete with ceiling fans! I found this country rest stop to be more pleasant than having to dodge cars and breathe fumes at gas stations. 

         The owner said that there's ample car parking, and cyclists are welcome to start rides here. He  said that he has an area to change clothes and even an outdoor shower.  How many times have you rushed home after a ride to shower and change before going out to dinner or meeting friends or family?

         Now that Baltimore County schools are in session, cyclists may not use school grounds on weekdays.  This new rest stop in Butler provides an alternative ride start to Sparks Elementary School.  Also the amenities and seating make it more pleasant  to wait for other members of your carpool to arrive - or just hang out with fellow cyclists.  If you want there's refreshments and a bike repair shop.  And it's OK to buy lunch next door and eat it here.  Velocci Bike/Coffee Shop is open everyday from 8am - 4pm.  (Hours may change in the fall).  Yes, it's OK to park or use the grounds when the shop is closed.
