Sunday Ride, April 3, 2011

Dear Friends,

We've got a fairly mellow ride scheduled for Sunday.  Hope you can join us! 

Please download and print out your own cue sheet.   Just click on "Cue Sheets" (on the left side of this page), and you'll find it 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.

Sorry, haven't had time to do a GPS file.  If you want one, let me know and if I have time to produce one I'll send it to you.



"VARIATIONS ON A THEME BY WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE SMITH," starting from Roy Rogers, 191 Thomas Johnson Drive, Frederick, Maryland.  **NOTE LATE MEETING TIME 8:30 a.m**!!  This kind and gentle ride is adapted from the 2007 Frederick Pedalers Century designed by Bill Smith and Tim Guilford.  (Thank you, Bill!)  The route goes to most of the same places but uses mostly different roads to get there.  In the morning we'll noodle along some of our favorite mellow roads between Frederick and Emmitsburg, then continue north into Adams County PA and slightly east to McSherrystown for lunch at Brothers Pizza.  We'll pass through the village of Harney in the morning and again in the afternoon, and there will be an afternoon rest stop at WGR's favorite refueling spot -- Detour!  Only ~ 4,000 feet elevation gain.  100 miles, with a 58-mile short option. 

Directions to the ride start:


From D.C. Beltway (I-495), take I-270 north 31 miles to Frederick.  Continue north on US15 3.7 miles.  Take Exit 16, Motter Ave exit (sign for Frederick Community College).  Turn RIGHT at the traffic light onto Opossumtown Pike.  In a quarter mile turn right onto Thomas Johnson Drive, then left into the shopping center.  Park at the north end of the parking lot near Weis Market.
