The perfect conditions for touring Antietam National Battlefield, eating ice cream, tasting wine, and listening to live music. A few important updates to share: Update #1: To accommodate our very busy 2019 BRC volunteers, many of whom want to join the Saturday group rides, but cannot get to the ride start by noon, we added an extra starting time of 1pm ET for the 13-mile route. Anyone can ride at 1pm with this final group; this time slot is not just for BRC volunteers. Update #2: Antietam Creek Vineyards will provide a food truck. BYOM (bring your own money)! Update #3: There are restrooms (porta-johns) at both the start/finish and the vineyard. Water is available too.   2019 BRC SATURDAY SUGAR RIDES Make it a weekend to remember! Join us for one of two PPTC group rides (13 miles and 36 miles), featuring the local sites, including the Antietam National Battlefield and Nutter's Ice Cream. Did somebody say ice cream? Absolutely yes, and Nutter's ice cream is amazing. Craving even more sugar? Both rides stop at the Antietam Creek Vineyard (right inside the park). While there enjoy wine tasting and live bluegrass music. The vineyard will also feature a food truck if you wish to purchase something to eat. YOU STILL NEED TO REGISTER These are standard PPTC group rides: meaning all are welcome, and there is no charge. To best enjoy Antietam National Battlefield and the Antietam Creek Vineyard, we must cap registration at 200 riders.
