Filling Station works if you take Carroll to Sparks to York Rd rather than Glencoe.  Then after Filling Station, continue south on York to right on E. Quaker Bottom to Priceville.
With the above there is no backtrack and only one cross of York Rd.

Baltimore County will permanently preserve a 23-acre farm in the Piney Run Rural Legacy Area in northwest Baltimore County.

December 02, 2021 Baltimore County
In the latest effort to support land preservation, County Executive Johnny Olszewski today announced the County will permanently preserve a 23-acre farm in the Piney Run Rural Legacy Area in northwest Baltimore County—the first easement funded through the County’s Rural Legacy program since 2015.

The easement on the 23-acre farm protects the agricultural land which currently include pasture and woodlands. By protecting the land in perpetuity, the County will help preserve the water quality of Piney Run and the view from Mt. Zion Road, a Baltimore County Scenic Route.

A 16-year-old Texas boy is charged with multiple felony counts after he allegedly hit a group of six bicyclists with his pickup truck while trying to blow exhaust on them, authorities announced Monday.

The Waller County district attorney’s office said in a statement that a teenager who drove his vehicle into bicyclists training for a triathlon, hitting all six riders and sending four to the hospital, has been charged with six counts of felony aggravated assault with a deadly weapon — one charge for each cyclist hit on Sept. 25. The teen, who has yet to be publicly identified, was not charged or cited by police after the incident, despite accounts from victims and witnesses that he deliberately antagonized the riders.

“Over the last six weeks this office has assigned its own investigators to seek out evidence, and to interview the victims and witnesses,” the statement said. “Earlier today the juvenile voluntarily surrendered himself, and was detained by representatives from the juvenile justice department where he will be held in custody until further orders of the juvenile court.”

It has been reported that the change in the Silo Hill Exxon into a Sunoco also finds a sign saying "No Public Restrooms".

So wise to avoid Park Heights Ave and also possibly Greenspring Ave and Garrison Forest.

Police Shoot Driver Who Struck Cyclists at Arizona Bike Race

Six people were seriously injured when a man driving a pickup truck plowed into cyclists at a bike race in Show Low, Ariz., the police said. The driver was then shot and wounded by the police.

The driver of a pickup truck hit a group of cyclists at a bicycle race in Show Low, Ariz., on Saturday, seriously injuring six people before the driver fled and was shot by the police, the authorities said.

The driver of the truck, a black Ford Super Duty, struck the bicyclists during the Bike the Bluff race at about 7:25 a.m. local time, the police said.

Officers tried to stop the driver, which “ultimately led to the suspect being shot,” about a mile and a half away, Navajo County Emergency Management and Preparedness said in a statement.

The driver, a 35-year-old man, was in critical but stable condition, the agency said.

Six people were taken to a hospital. Four were in critical condition, and two were in critical but stable condition, the police said. Two or three other victims walked into the hospital, the police said.

Robert Marchand, a diminutive Frenchman who once was told he would never excel in cycling only to set world records as a centenarian, died May 22 at a care facility in Mitry-Mory, France, outside Paris. He was 109.

I am running a DA 11 speed chain, currently at about 4900 miles of relatively clean, lub'ed use over Baltimore County roads.  I weekly measure the chain using a Park CC3.2 at a couple of different links.  When I checked yesterday the 0.5% did not slip in.  I spun the crank a half turn and remeasured.  The 0.5% went in.  Spun the crank another half turn and the 0.5% did not go in.

I then checked the entire chain and found one section of about 20 consecutive links at 0.5% wear (but not 0.75%) and all the other links were under 0.5%.
I had always assumed a chain on a non-fixie would wear uniformly.  So what is actual wear here, do I replaced the chain a little early?
What chance that this is a defective chain from the factory and that 10 link section was always out of spec.  Who checks every link on a new chain?

I agree with Phil about narrower roads - but seeing the number of tire tracks off the edge of roads and corresponding mud on many roads is daunting.  That's why ever more riders ride with front and rear daytime lights.
