Sunday Ride, February 13, 2011

Dear Friends,

We have a beautiful ride scheduled for Sunday, with temps predicted to reach at least 50!  Hope you can join us.

Please download and print out your own cue sheet and GPS files for the weekend rides.  Just click on "Cue Sheets" (on the left side of this page), and you'll find them there!  When you open a pdf file, just click on "Print" to print the cue sheet.  If you're unable to print the cue sheet yourself, let me know and I'll bring a hard copy to the ride start for you.  I won't be bringing extra copies of cue sheets to the ride start unless you email me directly and advise me that you're unable to print out your own.


"DAM GOOD RIDE TO GLEN ROCK," starting from New Midway Elementary School in Keymar, Maryland.  MEETING TIME 7:30am.  This ride heads in a northeasterly direction with a morning rest stop in Littlestown, PA., and continues past the Long Arm Reservoir and then along the very scenic Impounding Dam Road past the Sheppard Myers Dam.   We'll continue on to the historic railroad village of Glen Rock, where we'll have a relaxed and yummy lunch at Mignano's.  After lunch we'll tackle a few of York County's "interesting" hills as we head back into Carroll County MD.  Afternoon delights include Deep Run, a lovely cruise down Silver Run Valley, and maybe a CAMEL!   The route includes two stretches of lovely unpaved hard-pack surface roads.  Paved options are indicated on the cue sheet and will yield a couple of bonus miles.  101 miles, with 58 and 77-mile short options.
