Rain cancels ride.

Vernal Equinox Ride - Now we have true "Spring".  Or at least Sol, our star, is directly over the equator and casting solar brilliance equally between the tellurian hemispheres.  The equinox occurred yesterday afternoon at 5:58pm EDT so no more Winter riding we now enjoy Spring!  Snow will cancel the ride!?!

We ride the full extent of Old Court Rd to Marriottsville and then return via Wards Chapel to Glyndon and Padonia to Thornton.  Five biggish climbs and a bunch of rolling for about 3000 ft.

Snack at Dunkin Donuts at mile 17.6 on Old Frederick.  To make sure we do all of Old Court, we start by heading east on Joppa Rd to Hunts Church which will warm us up before the Park School climb.

We will ride "global warming vernal pace" with moments of enthusiasm countered by regrouping.  Come Join the Fun!
