Baltimore to DC century ride

There's more than one route between Charm City and the District. This month's Ramble is called "Good Craic". We start in south Baltimore and head west over top of Columbia. then down to DC via the trail system. 14th street will bring us into the city and a lunch at Irish pub, Fado. After lunch, we head home on the NW and Paint Branch trails, eventually passing BWI and coming back into Baltimore from the SE.

There is not a lot of climbing, but there are 103 miles and not much daylight to do it in. So we should push our pace as much as we can. You need to bring lights and proper clothing for winter riding. I may need to change the route if the DC trails still have snow on them by the weekend.

    BTW I'll post here and the blog tomorrow, when I put up a new cue sheet. I will also bring several printed copies.

    Here's the scoop: I will be at Carroll Park on Sunday at 7:15 regardless. I spent a while putting together a new route that bypasses all of the DC bike trails. The trails are going to be a mess so we'll have to go road. Actually, Sunday is looking to be a decent day for riding. We'll just have to see what Saturday night brings.

    I'm a bit concerned with the rain predicted on Saturday, it will either get rid of all the ice or make things worse. So I am a maybe.

    Hey ya'll. One thing I forgot to mention: Bring a lock. We'll be out of sight of the bikes during lunch.
