Ride for 6/8 - I'm going to an airshow at Reading PA

Owings Mills - Reading PA Airport

Mid-Atlantic Air Museum WWII Weekend



Meet at the 7-Eleven in Owings Mills. Kickstands up at 9:00AM heading for the Mid Atlantic Air Museum at Spaatz Field in Reading, PA.  We'll break/fuel stop a couple of times on the way there and once on the way back.  All secondary roads going there, arriving about noon.  Airshow begins at 1:00.  I plan to leave the show at 3:00 to avoid the inevitable traffic jam at the end of the show and return to Owings Mills via freeways arriving about 5:30.  Lunch on our own at the airshow concession stands.

This one is unique in that a really nice ride through Pennsylvania's farmland and Amish country is combined with a significant destination and a lively ride home.  Admission to the airshow is $25 and there will only be enough time to experience a little of the extensive program.  Some of the aircraft are historic and one-of-a-kind, especially those in flying condition.  Even though the route and timing are intended to mitigate traffic, there is always the possibility of getting delayed while everything sorts itself out.  I'm going and if you're up for it, you're welcome to join me!

    What a great day to ride! Lots of variety in road types, elevation changes, great scenery and GPS challenges. Air show lived up to its pre-show hype. The group rode well....good time!

    Great ride through some beautiful MD and PA countryside. (I don't know how Larry found some of these back roads). Air show had a good variety of planes on exhibit and non-stop demonstrations of their flying capabilities. Lots of related exhibits, reenactors, and docents on the ground to help visitors understand the bigger context. Larry, Steve, and Phil were good company.
