Sunday's Glyndon-Hampstead-Butler Ride

Sunday's Glyndon-Hampstead-Butler Ride

       Five people who prefer rides closer to home came out for this fun, 30 mile ride The first leg, using a combination of wide shouldered Hanover Pike and Old Hanover Pike, followed a historic RR still in use.  After enjoying sticky buns at Snickerdoodles in historic Hampstead, we zoomed down  " racetrack like" Blackrock Rd, and then continued south on a scenic stretch of Falls Rd.  Instead of regrouping on the road, faster riders stopped at Veloccino's. Then we headed west on Butler Rd, and did a challenging climb up Piney Grove (actually not bad on an e bike).  Then we took a scenic stretch of Old Hanover Pike and passed by a Boring town.  Lastly we retraced a couple miles of Hanover Pike - quite pleasant in light Sunday traffic - to return back to Glyndon. People brought or purchased lunch to eat at a park across the street from the historic train station.  We rode 4 blocks on RR Ave, arriving just in time to hear the Star Spangled Banner,  and enjoyed the outdoor Naval Academy Concert, in honor of Glyndon's 150th Anniversary, and in memory to the people who died in 9 - 11.

      I  thank Gene Bayer for helping me get the right GPS coordinates.  I added the Glyndon - Hampstead -Butler Ride to the BBC Cue Sheet Library (Baltimore County rides under 50 miles).  I  encourage club members to also focus on good riding opportunities near home.
