Thor's Day - Patapsco Lite

  • to
  • Rockburn Branch Skills Park

    5400 Landing Road, Elkridge, MD (map)

    39.222450 -76.755844

  • All the fun with half the calories.  A relatively informal romp from Rockburn Branch Park into Morning Choice Trail in Patapsco...and possibly beyond...  Slower than your average intermediate ride but more technically demanding than your average beginner ride, the vibe here will be pretty casual.  Wanna go fast?  Wrong ride.  Want to work on some logovers?  Bingo.  We'll do around 50 of them.

     

    Ride Leader: Brian


    Number: (seven-o-tree...tree-too-tree...for-for-o-fife)

    Please call me or post here if you suddenly can't make it or are running a few minutes late. Try to be ready to ride on time (good idea to get there 15 minutes early). If you've never been here, it's a good idea to get here even earlier so you're not late and stressed out.  We will try to accommodate everyone, but will leave the lot promptly 15 minutes after the listed time.

    This will be a relatively easy average pace with some technical terrain. Realistically evaluate your fitness and skill level.  We'll regroup at key spots and will break as needed.  Though this is a no-drop ride, be realistic, as there are some technical, rocky spots and lots of logs and roots.


    Voluntary drop policy (borrowed from MORE):  This is a no-drop ride, and we’ll actively make sure to keep the group together, but you may get the stink-eye from the group if you are having recurring mechanicals or that all-you-can-eat Indian buffet is slowing you down.  Please be considerate that, for most of us, this is our only opportunity to get in a mid-week trail ride and we’d like to make the most of it before the sun goes down.

     

    Directions: Follow the above address.  Upon entering the park, go to the end of the cul-de-sac and park.  That's where we hit it.


    What to bring:

    Helmet (no helmet, no ride)

    Mountain Bike (hybrid bikes are usually sketchy on trails)

    Water

    Snack (salty will help avoid cramps)

    Multi-Tool (although you can borrow one)

    Patch Kit

    Extra Tube

     

    Note: Please read the document "Meetup Ride Waiver" (found under menu: More > Files > Meetup Ride Waiver) before attending this event. Mountain biking is an inherently dangerous sport, and by attending this ride, you acknowledge and have read, agree to and fully understand the aforementioned waiver.

    It's likely I'll have to cancel it again. This section of Patapsco does NOT drain well. It rained last night...Stay tuned.

    I will be there. Do you know if this trail gets too wet and muddy? I'm not very good on wet terrain ...

      Same here! Mud is my kryptonite! I hope the weather holds up.
