I&M Canal Trail (McKinley Woods - Frederick's Grove to Morris) - 22 Miles

Let's meet at McKinley Woods - Frederick's Grove parking lot (lower lot near the I&M Canal trailhead) so we can start riding at 9:00AM.  Time is approx. as we will be biking from the Lower Rock Run Preserve parking lot to meet the group of 22 mile riders, but I believe 9:00AM will be pretty accurate.

You do not have to join me for the full distance, but keep in mind you may be riding back to the parking lot on your own if you choose to ride a shorter distance.

Pace:  10 - 11MPH average.

Trail Surface:  Crushed limestone.

**Helmets are strongly advised for all riders** due to the inherent dangers when biking. Meetup.com, the organizer, and other members of Girl With A Bike are NOT responsible for you or your safety; you are responsible for yourself and your safety if you attend this event.

Please bring:

• A good attitude

• Dress in comfortable layers and according to weather forecast

• Drinking water and snacks

• Supplies such as replacement inner tubes, patch kits and tools (tire levers, etc.) to repair flat tires that may occur

• Bike in ride-ready condition

I will NOT be able to help you make any repairs and please keep in mind that I am not a professional biker.  I am simply a girl who enjoys biking and has enjoyed  biking with the very wonderful people who attended the previous biking meetups!

      Renae, It was good to get out and ride. I've already signed up for the Sunday ride in two weeks.

    I think I will follow up next weekend when the trails are dried out some. Have a great time!

    I have to change to a no Renae. Air quality is so bad. I can't breathe.

    July 12, 2014

    • Renae

      Sue, I am sorry to hear that. Take care of yourself and hope to see you on a future ride soon!

      July 12, 2014

  • Renae

    I am so pumped up after today's ride and we will be there and ready to ride at 9AM. Of course, please check the site as I'll be checking the conditions and will update as necessary.

    Hey all, I'm just hopin' the limestone is dry enough to keep the line off our butts :) If Judd is givin' it a shot, well, so will I. Hope to see you all therre.

    BTW: The Liberty looks for sale. I think some money could be made there. I wanted the Manor Inn Resturant/Lounge on route 6, but Ivo's beat me too it.
    I am looking forward to meeting your new new meber cohorts, Renae!

    Hi Judd & Sue, I know you both know the drill so I'll just say, "I'll see you Sunday morning!". :-)

    July 11, 2014

    • Judd F.

      I'll be trying out my new tire on this ride :-)

      1 · July 11, 2014

    • Renae

      Cool! Looking forward to seeing you!

      July 12, 2014

  • Judd F.

    Hi Renae, I'm assuming you're doing this ride in conjunction with the longer ride you have posted for 8 AM?

    1 · July 6, 2014

    • Renae

      Hi Judd! Glad you're joining us for this ride! Yes, we will be biking in from the Lower Rock Run parking area and meeting up with the riders for this portion at McKinley Woods. Just as an fyi, the Liberty Cafe is not open on Sundays so no Dirty Monkeys this time around! :-(

      July 6, 2014

    • Judd F.

      Bummer! I'm sure we'll find something. I may decide to switch to the other ride, just trying to make up my mind if I can do 40 miles.

  • Caron C.

    I will definitely do one of these weekend rides, I have to get my work schedule on Monday to know which will work. Now, when you say 22 miles for this particular ride, that is round trip, right? My longest ride to date is about 20 miles, so I am still building stamina....

    July 2, 2014

    • Renae

      Hi Caron, yes 22 miles is the round-trip distance and of course it is just an out and back so you could turn around whenever you feel like it. You might end up riding back alone though if you do. We'll have to see who decides to join the ride.

      July 2, 2014

  • Renae

    Changed the time from 9:30AM to 9AM.

    July 2, 2014

  • Renae

    Trying something different for the rides this weekend as I've heard from some people that they would like to do a shorter distance at a slower pace. I will be ready to slow it down a bit when I get to McKinley Woods! Hope to see some people out for this portion of Sunday's ride whether it be the distance, the pace or perhaps some people just want to sleep in a bit! :-)
