2019-09-29 09:00:00 2019-09-29 09:00:00 America/New_York The Golden Girls Birthday Ride This is a special ride to celebrate our birthday's (Sept 30 & Oct 1). And one of us is celebrating a big Bday! (yet to be revealed) To mark the occasion we are pulling out one of my favorite rides. Lots of pretty views, and not much climbing. All the routes go up to Taneytown for the first leg. If you want 45 miles, just skip the middle loop. The two longer routes do either a 22 mile or 12 mile loop north of Taneytown, and back to the same rest stop once again. All the routes have the same 22 mile way back to Utica Park. After the ride, we plan to head down to Idiom Brewery In Frederick to celebrate the day. Here is the website: https://www.idiombrewing.com/ There will be a food truck there, but you can still bring your own food. Join us to mark this special day for both of us! Please print your own cue sheet. Also, you will have to either sign in online, or in person at the ride start.   Utica District Park (UDP)

The front runners keep a zesty pace but the ride leader always sweeps, so all are welcome. The ride leaves from the bike racks at the Marriott HQ on Fernwood.

We will start at Veirs Mill Park (VMP) at the North end of Beach Drive and ride up the Rock Creek Trail to Lake Needwood in time for a short break before joining Deborah’s “Friday Lunch Ride”. Please check here weekly for distance/destination info and any possible cancellations due to weather.  This ride will be the same length as the “Friday Lunch Ride” if lunch in Bethesda and could be a few miles longer if lunch in a more northern city, such as Olney or Rockville. Please remember to bring helmet, bike lock, and lunch money. Please arrive in time to be ready to roll at our departure time of 9:00.   Feel free to use the “Sign Up For This Ride” button above, but at the start of the ride you will still be required to sign the waiver and provide emergency contact info.

2019-10-04 17:15:00 2019-10-04 17:15:00 America/New_York Scenic Social Germantown Rec Park Friday Night ride This is the Friday night scenic social ride.  The rides run from end of March and go as long as daylight and start times allow (Sep/Oct).  Start times will vary to accommodate the changes in sunset times and to try and start as late as possible but allowing enough time to complete the ride before dusk. Please check the calendar for the latest start times. Ride is about 26 miles and we typically aim to complete in 90 minutes. Ride length is ~26miles with several regrouping points along the way. We usually wait at these points for others to catch up.  The ride does not go if there is precipitation (snow or rain) or if the roads are very slick due to recent precipitation.  Check this listing on any given Friday to see if the ride has been canceled. The ride starts at the Adventure Playground at South Germantown Recreational Park.  One of the reasons for the ride start location is the heated bathrooms available year 'round.  In addition, we will be riding on low traffic roads in the Montgomery Ag Reserve. Some of these roads are rough (Sugarland for example) so please make sure you have a spare tube along just in case.   South Germantown Rec. Park - Adventure Playground (SGRAP)
