5400 Landing Road, Elkridge, MD
All the fun with half the calories (burned, that is). 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.
Ride Leaders: Brian
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 moderately 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.
Directions: Follow the above address. Upon entering the park, go to almost the end of the lane and turn right at the steep uphill. There should be a sign at the uphill for the skills park. We'll gather by the skills park official sign at the top of the hill.
What to bring:
Helmet (no helmet, no ride)
Mountain Bike (hybrid bikes are usually sketchy on trails)
Snack (salty will help avoid cramps)
Multi-Tool (although you can borrow one)
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.
