Wednesday Schaeffer Farms for easy riders

I hope more people can join this time. I propose Wednesday easy ride on Schaeffer Farms for about an hour, then we can try Hoyles Mill Trail for extra, super-ultra fun at around 6:30 pm.

My suggested plan is very flexible. So if you have any suggestions/comments/concerns, please do not hesitate to speak out.

 

DIRECTIONS: Take I-270 to exit 15B to merge onto MD-118 South/Germantown Road. Go 3.2 miles and then turn RIGHT onto Richter Farm Road. Continue .6 miles and then turn LEFT onto Schaeffer Road. Go .3 miles (watch for the speed cameras!) At the traffic circle, continue straight to stay on Schaeffer Rd and go 1.3 miles. Turn left onto the gravel road that leads to the Schaeffer Farm parking lot.

WHAT TO BRING:
Helmet (no helmet, no ride)
Mountain Bike (hybrid bikes are usually sketchy on trails)
Ice cold water
Multi-Tool (although you can borrow one)
Patch Kit
Extra Tube (make sure the valve is the same as your bike)

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.

      Karla, sorry we couldn't meet you at 17. Did you make it safe back to the parking lot? The yellow path was a little bit tougher than we (Megan and I) thought, and Jeremy's chain got broken (luckily he had all the tools and skills to fix it fast, though). We made back to the parking lot at 8:00.

    I think Hoyles Mill is harder than Schaffer. Maybe they are similar...

      The part between south germantown park and white ground is super fun, definitely worth doing, but not what I'd call ultra-beginner terrain.
