This Meetup is cancelled

POSTPONED AGAIN. UUUUGH!!!!TECHNICAL­ RIDE WHEN THE WEATHER BREAKS.

  • This location is shown only to members

  • UPDATED UPDATE. Mother Nature Just doesn't want this ride to happen. I rode some of the roads tonight (after the little bit of rain we got today) and they were wet. With what is being called for tomorrow into Sunday, I'm not going to chance it. Lets try again for April 6th.... fingers crossed. Sorry guys and gals

    I STILL NEED VOLUNTEERS FOR PACK LEADERS, AS I'D LIKE TO KEEP THE PACKS AROUND 10-12 RIDERS. I'M WORKING ON RALLY POINTS ALONG THE WAY, FOR PHOTO OPS AND SHENANIGANS.



    Hi all, I'm thinking I'd like to lead a ride thru Howard, B-more, Harford, and Carrol Counties. The route I'm working on is very scenic and gets pretty advanced in places. Mostly back roads, with very little highway riding. I'm thinking a good start point would be the MapleLawn (216 & 29) area. We'll wind our way thru up and past Loch Raven. Many good places to stop and eat, and plenty of gas stops. Anyone interested. Probably be in the[masked] mile range, and a long day, as most of the speed limits are below 45mph.

      Thanks everyone for your help I got the seafoam and that seem to have helped.

      Seafoam? This is some kind of gas treatment?

    I've been monitoring the roads (pre-riding). I'm going to ride the route on saturday to solidify the route and lunch. So far no serious potholes to worry about. But i'll have a solid answer on any route changes satirday evening. Goid suggestion bro

    March 23, 2014

  • Ron

    Anyone live in the area of this ride. Maybe someone could just do a light survey of the roads to see if there are lot of pot holes on the route so everyone could be aware of any hazards ahead of time. This early in the season the road crews haven't had a chance to fix some streets.

    Thanks to every one for RSVP'ing. 8 days away, so its time to get some organization... I have some questions for y'all.
    -Who's meeting at what meetup point? The third one i listed Old Courte Crowne has actually changed names. For clarity, its the gas station on the South East corner of the intersection.
    -Who wants to step up and be a group leader? With the amount of RSVP's we'll need to split the pack into smaller groups, for the first half of the ride. After the lunch stop, we can actually ride en masse.
    -I'm riding the route tomorrow (suday 3/9). I rode it a couple weeks ago, and some of the roads were less friendly. Anyone interested in joining me is more than welcome. If the roads are still icy/small rivers, I'll have to alter the route.

      Hi No Chow, I'll be at Rips (meetup #1). I'm really looking forward to getting back on the road!!!

    Ok, rode the route again today. All clear (as long as Old Man Winter doesn't act up again). Food Stop in Hunt Valley will be Boardwalk Fresh Burgers and Fries. http://www.boardwalkfreshburgersandfries.com/menu.php
    Spoke with the manager today, is more than excited to host us.
    Dress warmer than what the weather dictates, as a lot of the route is either in the shadows of trees and hills or cutting thru wide open fields. I dressed for 50 degree weather today, and was a bit chilled by the time i got to the lunch stop.
    Can't wait to see y'all Sunday

    I am so ready to ride. As soon as I got all my heated gear...it just wouldn't stop snowing! Anyone know of a mobile detailer? My bike needs some pampering she's been neglected.

  • Vincent C.

    I just RSVP'd as "yes," but mark me as "I'd like to... but too soon to tell whether I will really be able to." Thanks.

    January 13, 2014

    • Tammy

      Hi Vince. I rode to work today and, look forward to riding with you this year. I agree about the limited meetup RSVP option. I think most of us are "it depends on the weather that day" riders. Although "No Chow " is an experienced organizer, RSVPing early can help with planning. Based on the total # of riders I usually increase or decrease the # of tail gunners/leads, fuel stops, restaurant size & reservation or, maybe even alter the route. I really hope to make this trip for I heard Rte 29 was very nice.

      January 13, 2014

    • Vincent C.

      Thanks, Tammy. I'm looking forward to riding with you too.

      January 14, 2014

  • No C.

    Can't wait to get this ride rolling. Be warned i'm a stickler for times, so the KU times are hard times.

    January 13, 2014

  • Ron

    I'm in glad to have more Sunday rides.

    January 13, 2014

  • Vincent C.

    I've done a little riding up there. My sister-in-law lives around Carol Manor Road and Sweet Air Road (SR 145). I agree, it's a very scenic area.

    January 13, 2014

  • No Chow changed the location for this Meetup

    January 12, 2014

  • No Chow changed the date and time to Sunday, March 16, 2014 at 10:00 AM

    January 12, 2014

  • No C.

    Ok, as per management :P Here is my revised revised route. Fist meeting point at Rip's in Bowie (fuel stop). Second at Looney's South in Maplelawn (fuel stop). Third at Old Court Crown Station in Randallstown (corner of Old Court and Liberty Road). Food stop at Hunt Valley Towne Center (Cockeysville). Many options for food. This can also double as a gas stop. http://www.shophuntvalley.com/shops-services/dining/
    there are plenty of gas stations along the route, JIC. here is the projected route. I rode most of it today. It is extremely scenic and gets very twisty at points (read cruisers might drag pegs, at speed limit). http://mapq.st/KSK3YU

    I'd like to hit this as soon as the weather breaks. So lets say tentatively March 16th.
    First meetup point at Rips, 1000hrs. KU at 1030hrs.
    Second meetup point at Looney's, 1115hrs. KU at 1130hrs.
    Third meetup point at Old Court Crown, 1215hrs. KU 1230hrs.
