"I'm Leafing You, Baby" Twist n' Go!

Leafing your baby doesn't mean a lonely ryde. It's a chance to take your baby to the beautiful hills and forests of western Maryland and leaf them there! Only in the colorful sense of course, you can leaf each other, before turning over a new one ... in the Spring. We'll likely plot a scenic run out toward the Catoctin and Sharpsburg/Antietam areas ... and find a nice place for lunch.

***UPDATE***  Okay folks ... the response is as great as our members.  Those of you stretching for ryder pins will earn them on this one ... 130 miles of Fall splendor!  We'll depart Sykesville at 9:am.  Ryders' Meeting: 8:45.  Our numbers require we brunch at a place with some capacity, which are both known but sparse in Maryland.  Now it's not the same ryde as our Breaky-Brunch of some weeks ago, but our brunch stop will again be at the Mountain Gate Inn, in Thurmont.  We will then depart with a short hop north on US 15, then onto MD 77 to its turnoff on Catoctin Hollow Road ... south by Cunningham Falls and then out into Frederick County.  We will take some of the prettiest roads we know bursting with color down to Antietam Battlefield, stop at the Tower, then tack southeast for a beautiful crossing at Gapland State Park and down through Burkittsville ... then continue over for a quick break at the Sheetz at the intersection of MD 17 and 180, just northwest of Brunswick.  We'll move on through Point of Rocks and then off MD 28 onto Mt. Ephraim Road to Sugarloaf Mountain.  The conclusion of the ryde will take us east just south of Damascus, then on scenic road over to MD 94; then MD 97.  The Ryde will end at the High's Dairy Store and Gas Station on MD 97, just south of its intersection with MD 144 (Frederick Road).

DONT' FORGET - DAYLIGHT SAVINGS TIME ENDS TONIGHT ... You get to sleep in an extra hour!  Be sure you set your clocks back an hour before you go to bed. 

WEATHER:  9AM forecast for Sykesville:  52 Degrees ... gonna be a bit cool.  Daytime high:  64.  Make sure you dress to layer down as the day warms up.

Gonna be a great ryde!

    Couldn't be more gratified when a quick check of the weather forms an idea ... two days later, 23 friends converge from near and far to enjoy the day. Our members' spirit is what makes MSW a community ... a family. Thanks to all who came to one of our best fall foliage runs. Congrats to Mitch Paul and Charles Penry on achieving benchmark Gold and Silver Ryder level, respectively. Nice work! Brunch was great ... The ryde was long, but serene; the formation looked great in my rear-view mirror. Thanks to my fellow R/Cs, Pete and Bernie with a little more help from Herb and Gary. Big thanks to those who contributed photos/videos. This ryde and others spotlight the 'why' MSW will exceed 90 events over seven years this during 2016, and cross the century mark next riding season. Thanks to everyone! :-)

    What started out to be a chilly morning turned into a great day for a ride. My grandson said everyone was really nice and he really enjoyed the ride. He's already talking about getting a canam when he is old enough.

      Velma ... I use the smart phone app. There has been a major update in the past few weeks (you can tell because the logo changes). The result - I get overdosed on notifications ... LOL ... Hope to see you guys soon.

    Thanks again to Paul and Pete for planing another great Ryde with scenic views, great back roads, and not so sure if they have an inside track or not but we could not have asked for better weather. All of you guys and ladies are a wonderful group of people to Ryde with and it was great seeing you again. Already looking forward to the next Ryde!

    Bummer - I have to miss this. We are spending Saturday night in Luray, VA where we are attending a wedding - there is no way I could get home from Luray in time to make this ryde. Have fun. I wish I was going!

    • Paul A.

      Dan, we'll miss you. Join us on another ryde soon.

      I'd be there if I wasn't in Luray, right now. Interestingly, as we pulled in to the motel, yesterday, I realized that it is the same one we stayed at for our Skyline Drive ride a couple years ago! The parking lot looked better full of Spyders than it does full of cars!
