Sunday Ride, June 16, 2012

Dear Friends,

More gorgeous weather is on tap for this weekend, and I hope you can join us for a beautiful ride to Glen Rock, Pennsylvania on Sunday!  Here are the details (sorry they're so sketchy):

SUNDAY, JUNE 16, 2012

"RAILROAD RIDER," starting from South Carroll High School, Winfield, Maryland.  **MEETING TIME 8:00.**  This is a great ride and I know I had a very nice ride description for it once upon a time, but I've lost it and don't have time to write a new one just now!  Suffice it to say it's a very hilly, scenic ride through Carroll County MD and York County PA with a nice lunch stop Mignano Brothers Restaurant in Glen Rock PA.  100 miles, with short options of 51 and 76 miles, both of which, alas, turn around long before Mignano's.  Estimated elevation gain ~ 7500 feet.  (As usual, don't believe RWGPS.) 

Here's the link to the interactive RWGPS map:

Please download and print out your own cue sheet and overview map for Sunday's ride directly from the DCCenturyRides blog,  Just click on "Cue Sheets" (on the left side of the page), and you'll find them there!  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.  Please don't try to use the so-called "cue sheet" that appears on the left side of the RWGPS map!

Directions to the ride start:

SOUTH CARROLL HIGH SCHOOL, 1300 West Old Liberty Road, Sykesville MD  21784 (note that school is actually in Winfield, NOT Sykesville, but it has a Sykesville address).

From DC Beltway, go North on I-270 15 miles to exit 16/Father Hurley Boulevard.

Take MD27 north 23 miles (past Damascus and Mt. Airy).
