Hi all, I am riding with Cycling is fun and Bike me Dc the weekend of August 17th and 18.
I asked permission From the event organizer of Cycling Is Fun if I could share this with the Biking In Baltimore he of course being the outdoor cyclist he said sure. So here it is. .
Last year a group went up to cycle an "Easy Covered Bridges" ride in Frederick, MD the day before the Lancaster ride. They happened to be doing this the same day and along a lot of the same routes as the official Tour de Frederick. We are going to do the same UNOFFICIAL ride and maybe we'll run into Greg LeMond like they did last year!
This is one of the most beautiful rides with gently rolling hills and no significant climbs. Plan to leave Richmond around 8:00 (caravanning plans will come closer to the date) and meet in the elementary school parking lot. Wheels on the road by 11:30. There is a place to eat lunch around mile 17 but be sure to bring plenty of snacks / powerbars / water for the ride in case it is closed. This ride is 33 miles.
Sat 11:30am Lewistown ES parking lot off of Hessong Bridge Road, Thurmont MD. Extrapolating from an online cue sheet I believe it is near the intersection of Hessong Bridge Rd and Lewistown Rd
Let me know if you are interested and I will Keep Dennis in the loop on how many people we have coming.
