Possible safer way to Sykesville
Category: Social

Becky and Jim rode from Mt Hebron west on RT 99 heading toward Sykesville by this new route to avoid RT 32 as suggested by Mike Harris. From RT99 turn R on Henryton, L on Crows Foot (ignore yellow "No Outlet" sign), R on Mayapple Trail (no sign currently; if you reach Crystal Ridge on your left you've gone too far), changes name to Stepping Place, at T turn L onto High Stepper Trail, at T turn R onto River Road toward Sykesville!

Thank you Mike Harris for the suggestion! Nice route.

Just learned of Rodney’s passing. I bought my 1987 Cannodale SR2000 road racing bicycle from Bicycle World. He customized the bike and did a superb fitting. I love ❤️ this bike. Such a friendly professional man.

Bicycling is ranked 2.

Sad news.

I wonder how their test results compare to those of Consumer Reports?
