Last month, the Frederick Grand Fondue lived up to its reputation: huge climbs, amazing scenic views, great organizing and wonderful food. Thanks Bike Doctor, job well-done.
Now on to the next food event: this Sunday’s Pancake Interception. Baltimore to Union Bridge for pancakes (and biscuits, gravy, french toast, eggs, muffins, coffee, OJ …etc.)
The Pancake Interception will wind its way through beautiful Baltimore and Carroll county’s woodlands, currently radiating with vibrant color. This is a hilly ride, but I’ve shortened it a bit to 96 miles. We’ll maintain a steady, easy pace with stops every 25 miles. There are five short sections of this route on unpaved roads. All of these are passable on skinny tires, but would be more comfortable on 28mm’s and wider. Below, I have two cue sheets, one for the standard ride and the other with detours around the gravel parts. Pick which you like and print it out. Sundown is before 5PM, so the next few rambles take off at 7:30AM. IMPORTANT: Bring $7 cash for your breakfast in Union Bridge. Bring lights for your bike and appropriate clothing for the season. I hope to see ya on Sunday.
