Ride to Galesville

  • Oct 6, 2013 · 8:30 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

Come join us for a special ride through Maryland's Prince Georges and Anne Arundel's Counties to a rendezvous with the great Chesapeake Bay. This 50 mile trip will go through many historic sites such as churches, farmlands and forests. To quote a Boyz to Men song: "Not too hard, not too soft". The terrain is gently rolling with some hills that have just enough sting to remind you that it is not flat out there. The variety in scenery is simply spectacular. Starting with industrial parkland to sprawling suburbia to farmlands, forests, and waterfronts. Finally, the Davidsonville veterans will really appreciate the latter half of the ride because the route covers some very familiar territory.


Starting/Ending Point:
New Carrollton metro station(orange line)
Total Distance: 50 miles, 25 miles single direction
Terrain: Rolling to mildly hilly, see ride profile for details
Highlights: the best of suburbia, farmlands, forests, gorgeous riverfront and many furry creatures

- ID, spare tube, bike lock/cable are recommended .
- Snacks and liquids can be purchased.
- The event will be canceled/postponed if it rains.

    Hey Folks. There's been a typo in the Ride Details. The Start Time is still 8:30am with the latest departure time(after pre-ride briefing)8:45am. Sorry for the confusion and please arrive early so that we can start promptly.
