Patapsco from CCBC Casual/Advance Beginner

  • to
  • Patapsco via CCBC Catonsville Campus

    800 South Rolling Road, Catonsville, MD (map)

    39.255352 -76.728474

  • ***READ BEFORE RSVP***

    This ride’s pace will be casual and easy. This ride is for the regular mountain bikers due to the technicality that Patapsco has to offer. I will wait at intersections and take breaks as needed. IF you have not ridden much trails with technical condition like rock gardens and log overs, this not the ride for you. This ride may have many stops and breaks, so you've been warned, we may be out there 3-4.5 hours total. We don't want to rush. I am just getting back into the groove so I might be slow.
    What: Casual Pace at Patapsco State Park.


    Where: Patapsco State Park, Avalon Area, via the CCBC Catonsville Tennis Court Parking Lot #6.


    Pace: Approx 5-7 mph. Good for most Advance Beginner and regular riders, not so much for true beginners DUE TO THE TECHNICAL OF THE TRAIL. This is a no-drop ride, we will wait up for everyone at intersections if needed. (Note: We will adjust to the group dynamics, and Racer X hopefully WILL BE disappointed). IF YOU WANT TO GO FAST THIS IS NOT THE RIDE FOR YOU!!


    Terrain: Ranges from moderate to difficult to more difficult. Some of the trails are fairly smooth, and there are a few steep climbs, rocks and technical sections, and a stream crossing or two, just be advised that the terrain can be very difficult in places.


    Distance: Approx. 15-18 miles (not sure of exact mileage on route yet). At least half of it is down hill (ha-ha!).


    Duration: Approx. 3–4 hours, depending on group dynamics, trail conditions, wait-ups, mechanicals and/or number of breaks (we will take at least one 10–15 min. break to refill if needed). I suggest having at least 4.5 hours cleared for riding.


    Directions: CCBC (Community College of Baltimore County) Catonsville Campus, 800 South Rolling Road, Baltimore, MD 21228-5317. Meet at back parking lot (#6), near the tennis courts and ball fields. At CCBC entrance, take Campus Drive to the back of the campus, where the tennis courts are. Look for bikes. This link is real close: +39° 15' 0.00", -76° 44' 9.61"


    Bring: Helmet (required), water, spare tube/patch kit, multi-tool, I.D., emergency contact info where it can be easily located on your person.


    Weather: Shine Only (no ride if it's raining or the trails are too muddy). Protect our trails and don't ride them when they're fragile. http://www.weather.com/weather/5-day/USMD0142


    Wheels on trail by 9:20isham

    Sounds like a fun ride, but I am on the DL due to a pretty significant injury at the 12 hour Cranky Monkey. Perhaps you can do something similar in a couple of weeks? :)
