Dear all-

While Chuck and Crista are off riding permanents this weekend, I'll be a leading a Saturday ride starting in Mt. Airy for those who are interested in attending the Stan Miller Life Celebration afterward in Gaithersburg.  Please email me at jemag@verizon.net and let me know if you are coming so I can send you the cue sheet.

Here are the details:

"GETTYSBURG GLORY," starting from Watkins Park in Mt. Airy, Maryland.
MEETING TIME 7:30 A.M.  This ride was adapted from a classic Tom Burns
ride led back in Y2K.  The terrain is very hilly at the beginning and
end and fairly mellow in the middle.  The ride includes a very nice tour
of the Gettysburg battlefields.  There are two short unpaved stretches
near the end of the ride, but I have cued a paved option for the
squeamish.  Lunch at Dino's in Gettysburg.  103 miles, with a 57-mile
short option that turns around at the first rest stop in Taneytown.

Directions to the ride start:
take I-270 north to exit 16, Father Hurley Blvd (MD27).
Follow MD27 north for 8 miles to Damascus, then BL tro MD27 north.
Pass under I-70 in another 6-1/2 mi. (you are now in Mt. Airy).
In 1.7 mi., after passing thru 3 traffic lights, turn L into Watkins
Park, followed by a quick right.
Head past tennis courts to next small parking lot on L (next to small
restroom building).
