New Meetup: Saturday at Patapsco (Avalon Area) again!

From: Peter A
Sent on: Thursday, August 12, 2010 4:25 PM
Announcing a new Meetup for The Washington, DC/MD/VA Mountain Bike Meetup Group!

What: Saturday at Patapsco (Avalon Area) again!

When: Saturday, August 14,[masked]:00 AM

Where: CCBC Catonsville Campus
800 South Rolling Road
Catonsville, MD 21228

Great ride last week, so let's do it again. This will be a ride with some guys and gals from Loch Raven, who more than likely will do at least 15-20 miles. I plan to break off from that group somewhere along the line, for a total of about 12-15 miles. Anyone craving more milage can hang with the Loch Raven group.

What: Saturday morning ride at Patapsco State Park, Avalon Area, via CCBC: Catonsville Campus (about a mile from the I-195/Rolling Road Park-n-Ride we met at last week).

Pace: Moderate, approx. 6 to 8 mph average, no-drop. Not a fast-paced ride, but not suitable for beginners due to mileage, the number of climbs, rocks and technical sections, and a stream crossing or two.

Distance: Approx. 12-15 miles (not sure of exact route yet, depends on group dynamics and trail conditions).

Duration: Approx. [masked] hours, depending on distance, group dynamics, trail conditions, number of breaks, any mechanicals, etc.

Location: CCBC Catonsville Campus, 800 South Rolling Road, Baltimore, MD[masked]

Directions: Meet at CCBC (Community College Baltimore County) Catonsville Campus at the parking lot near the tennis courts. From I-195/Rolling Road Park-n-Ride, go right (west) on Rolling Road, past light at Wilkens Ave. Make left onto Collegiate Drive. Make left onto Campus Drive. Make left at tennis court parking lot (just after ball field).

Time: Wheels rolling by 10:00 a.m.

Bring: Water, helmet, spare tube/patch kit, multi-tool, I.D. and emergency contact info where it can be easily located on your person. Cell phone and insect repellent are not a bad idea, either.

Weather: Shine Only (no ride if it's raining or the trails are too muddy).

Ride Leader: Peter; 410-9six7-sixsix83; trekfueleratcomcastdotnet
