Ride Baltimore City's Tour Dem Parks!

http://tourdemparks.org/
Today, Thursday June 5, is the last day for on-line registration!  It's a lot easier than standing in line, but you can register at the site as well for this Baltimore City parks-based ride. There are 4 routes, from 12 to 64 miles. I am out of town that weekend, but feel free to get together as a group and see the city by bike.   THIS IS AN AWESOME RIDE!

    I work for MDE at Montgomery Park which right next to Carroll Park. I just discovered this ride today, after mountain biking at Patapsco. I thought this would be a great opportunity for me to ride in baltimore for the first time. I hope I have enough legs left over.

    Thanks Penny! I will follow your advice and try the 25 or 35 mile ride.

    Which route is recommended for someone who is not a regular cyclist and is new to this event? I

      Beth, your bike can handle the 12 mile ride, but I know you can handle a longer one. I think you would like the 25 or 35 mile ride...they would be just long enough.

    what route would be best for a road bike?

      So, there are rough spots on all the rides, but the shortest one is not road bike friendly at all. Here is the response from the route-master: The 12 miler uses the millrace which can be kinda squishy, but somebody with a road bike is probably interested in something longer anyway. The 25, 35, and 62 all use the Dickeyville spur of the GFT which is a little primitive, but a road bike should be ok. The 62 uses the old Haul Road out to N Pt S P, which has a few rough transitions. Bring tubes!

      I'm putting in a good word for the ride out to North point State Park (the 62 mile). I've done the ride early in the morning, and the park is beautiful then. It's great to ride out there, so if you are tempted to do so, I would encourage it.

    So, I've been the mechanic at the start of every ride since it's inception (actually, I started this ride). This year I have a college reunion at the same time, so I won't be around. Everyone have a really, really fun time, and look out for each other. Have a burger for me at the picnic afterwards (they have veggie burgers!)

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
