Three Covered Bridges and Holy Grounds Cafe in Frederick County MD

The date was changed from Saturday to Sunday September 8, due to the Baltimore Bike Club Civil War Century on Saturday with all of the routes going over many of the same roads we would ride.

We'll need to find an alternative to the Holy Grounds Cafe because they are closed on Sundays. The group can decide between alternatives for coffee/snack or lunch.

We'll take a easy ride from Utica Park (off of Rt. 15), a few miles north of Frederick, MD, to Emmitsburg, passing through the first of the covered bridges. We'll stop at the Holy Grounds Cafe in Emmitsburg for coffee or a smoothie. We'll get the last two covered bridges in on the way back to Utica Park. Distance: 30-35 miles.

    I can't make the ride today but it sounds awesome. Could someone please send over a cue/map so that I may do the ride later this Autumn?

    I'm so glad you were able to change the date to today. You'll have beautiful weather for your ride. I hope you'll put the Civil War Century on the calendar for next year. They do have a 25 and 50 mile route, if you don't want to do any of the 3 longer routes. It's a very well run event with a nice picnic at the end.

    Folks, do you know the Baltimore Bike Club is running their biggest event, The Civil War Century, tomorrow out of Thurmont. That attracts 1600 people. May I suggest you can move this to Sunday?

    Thanks.

    The ride is usually between 30-35 miles round trip, dedpending how much we wind along the country roads.
