North Carroll HS (former location) in Hampstead; Distance: 67/71 miles; Description: Rolling with hills very scenic ride to Taneytown; over some familiar roads and some new roads; ride dates from early 2000's and was scheduled on the 4th of July for several years. 'Cue sheet form' is original; Sheet #1 and #2 avoid Robert Arthur's gravel road. Sheet #1 maintains original distance with some loss of total elevation. Sheet #2 adds 4 miles and slightly increases total elevation gain. 

I will bring cue sheets for the original and the "Unger Rd" option (sheet 1).

Early start to avoid some of the heat and humidity. Most of the elevation gain is leaving and returning to Hampstead.

Between mile 16.6 and mile 43.6, there are no stores. Be sure you have adequate fluids for this section.

This has been a popular ride in years past. I missed the 4th of July to lead this ride since I was working.


SamKlitzner I like how you keep things simple Ed. Good job.

SamKlitzner For anyone who's interested...I did my best to plan the "No Gravel"/Sheet 1 route on RWGPS. It should work well with the cue sheet provided the day of the ride. The very end -- to the school -- might be a little bit different but as far as I can see the .fit file should work well with the provided cue sheet. https://ridewithgps.com/routes/30519270

SamKlitzner Metric century. 5,000 ft of climbing. Nice pace and company. It doesn't get much better than that. Thanks Ed!!
