Intermediate / Fast Patapsco from CCBC

What: Intermediate / Fast Pace at Patapsco State Park

Where: Patapsco State Park, Avalon Area, via the CCBC Catonsville Tennis Court Parking Lot #6.

Pace: Approx. 8 to 10 mph. Good for most average riders, not so much for beginners. This is a no-drop ride, you may feel that you are drop but we will wait up for everyone at intersections If needed. (Note: We will adjust to the group dynamics, and Racer X hopefully will not be disappointed).

Terrain: Ranges from moderate to difficult. Most of the trails are fairly smooth, but there are a few steep climbs, rocks and technical sections, and a stream crossing or two, just be advised that the terrain can be difficult in places.

Distance: Approx. 15–18 miles (not sure of exact route yet). At least half of it is down hill (ha-ha!).

Duration: Approx. 2.5–3 hours, depending on group dynamics, trail conditions, wait-ups, mechanicals and/or number of breaks (we will take at least one 10–15 min. break to refill).

Directions: CCBC (Community College of Baltimore County) Catonsville Campus, 800 South Rolling Road, Baltimore, MD 21228-5317. Meet at back parking lot (#6), near the tennis courts and ball fields. At CCBC entrance, take Campus Drive to the back of the campus, where the tennis courts are. Look for bikes. This link is real close:  +39° 15' 0.00", -76° 44' 9.61"

Bring: Helmet (required), water, spare tube/patch kit, multi-tool, I.D., emergency contact info where it can be easily located on your person.

Weather: Shine Only (no ride if it's raining or the trails are too muddy). Protect our trails and don't ride them when they're fragile.

Ride Leader: Jose ,[masked]ThreeFourone.

    I had a great time wish I did not fall twice and crash once, I had a tough day today but thats what happens when I lead with the leafs, LOL. Hurt my left knee on the 1st fall, hurt the right on the 2nd and hurt the bike on the crash, I said the heck with that and jumped off the bike ran into 2 huge trees that were down, but after all I fell great right now and cant wait till next weekend and by popular demand I will posted again hopefully we do the full 18, less issues and keep the 10mph as promise. BTW there was 1 broken chain but it was not me this time, LOL.

    Atilla, this is not a beginners ride we will do around 18 miles hopefully in fast pace and over 100 logovers, I am not trying to discorage you in any way but if you feel that you can hang without stopping for 4 miles or more in Ptaps then you are good. Another good choice would be the Woodstock ride with Pete.

    Too fast for my low-powered legs, especially at Patapsco. Besides I could not ride Saturday anyway. Hope to see you guys Sunday in full costume!
