Please join us on Saturday, May 12, for the Maryland Spring Century, one of Potomac Pedalers' most popular club events. Routes of 50, 75 and 101 miles through scenic Howard and Carroll Counties are lightly traveled, and the terrain rolling to hilly. The course will leave Fulton Park & Ride (MD Rts 29 & 216) and head into Lisbon. Once at the Lisbon rest stop (another Park & Ride) – optional loops are available before returning to Fulton.
PPTC will provide some refreshments at Lisbon as well as have both 700 X 23 tubes and floor pumps on hand. The Lisbon rest stop menu will include water, Gatorade, and quality foods such as bagels and cream cheese, peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, and for the century riders – ham or turkey sandwiches. There is no charge for the ride but we encourage you to bring a snack (leave at sign-in) that can be shared during or after the ride. Your favorite ride treats such as cookies, nuts, chips, brownies, or fruit would be welcomed. In addition, the Fulton and Lisbon Park & Ride locations are surrounded by grocery stores, gas stations, etc. No one should ride hungry! Port-a-pots, this year, will be available at both Fulton and Lisbon Park & Ride locations.
Last year, we raised over $100 for the Scaggsville Fire and Rescue Department. Again, we will be supporting a worthy cause by collecting donations for Steve Lafferty's daughter's college fund. Steve, a member of the PPTC family, recently passed away due to injuries sustained during a Reston bicycle club ride. A charity box will be available post ride.
For those of you who like to head out “solo”– show and go between 7:30am and 8:00am. If you want to join up with a ride leader – departure is at 8:00am.
Rain Date is Sunday, May 13th.
And of course…volunteers are always needed - contact Johanna Nathanson [masked] if you can assist with rest stop or post-ride duty.
