** New Policy: If the Attendance is maxed out, then anybody with recent No Show history will be bumped in favor of the next one on the Waiting List. **

*** Special Note: This is a challenging, hilly ride, suitable only for experienced riders equipped with road bikes. ***


Two of our most popular rides combined in one:

Starting at Shady Grove Metro we do Brighton Dam to the back of the Triadelphia circuit, then continue North to Sykesville. Brunch at Baldwin's Station, then return the traditional Salvation route down Daisy, Jennings Chapel, Howard Chapel, Zion, Brookeville and Muncaster back to Shady Grove. It's a 55 miler with 32 miles out, and 23 miles back. A google maps route link is given below. Memorize it, print it, or be sure to follow me, because I don't print reams of cue sheets.

We start at 8:30am: This is the first day after putting the clocks back, so it still feels like 9:30. This ride is suitable for experienced road bike riders capable of maintaining a 14mph average over 4 hours of riding. I'm limiting it to 16 riders so they can accommodate us comfortably at Baldwin's. Because we need to let them know the numbers in advance don't sign up if you're going to back out or no show at the last minute.

Sign up for yourself, no guests. Bring $10-$15 for brunch.

    Reasonable weather for the first weekend of November, a nice bit of climbing, good food, and good company - what more could you ask for on a bike ride? Thanks for setting this up Stephen!

    A great ride, didnt realize until the end that it was over 3600 ft of climbing, only negative but was easily forgotten about on the hills was the chilly conditions. Very Scenic and good roads.

    Hi Everybody,

    As I told Stephen, I created a tcx file to see the altitude gain and decide about my crankset. If anybody is interested in the file, you can download it from the following link:

    Please download under your own responsibility (Firefox and Chrome are better). You can also shoot me an email and I'll send you the file.
