Sunday Permanent - "Sailing Down to Solomons"

Dear Friends,

We're not scheduling a ride on Saturday but a group of us are planning to ride the "Sailing to Solomons" 206K RUSA Permanent on Sunday, starting from Crofton, Maryland.  If you're interested in joining us you must contact me today so that I'll have time to process all the necessary registration paperwork.  Friday's too late!  All riders must be current RUSA members.

"Sailing Down to Solomons" is a relatively mellow route, suitable for winter riding.  The route heads due south, passing through Prince Frederick on the way down to the pretty nautical town of Solomons, where it takes a nice tour around Solomons Island.  The return route visits Chesapeake Beach, North Beach, Rose Haven, and the lovely Fairhaven.  There are some extended stretches on busy Route 2/4, but the road has wide, smooth shoulders and at least offers an opportunity for speedy travel.  Much of the ride is on quiet, scenic country roads and there are lots of nice water views.
