I love this map
Just a couple weeks ago we were climbing hills in B’more county on 4 Reservoirs. Now we’ve got a ramble that should suit those who don’t ride a gazillion miles a year, who actually have a life outside of biking: The Point to Point ride, a mostly flat survey of the western shores of the upper Chesapeake.
We’ll meet at Fort McHenry (hopefully the feds will let us ride the park this time). From there we skirt the harbor through Canton and Dundalk to Sparrows Pt., north to North Point, Back River, Rocky Pt. and lunch at the quaint Island View restaurant on Barrison Point in Middle River. After a crabcake and a beer we continue rolling north thru Bowleys Quarters, Marshy Pt. and all the way up to Gunpowder State Park. Each time we make our way to the scenic tip of the penninsula and backtrack to the next point. There are a lot of U-turns on this ride, some safe, but trafficky sections along Eastern and North Pt. avenues and lots of water to look at.
Though at time there can be strong head winds, this ride is as flat as any of the Rando Rambles. If you haven’t gotten your century ride in for the year, this is an easy one (I may give it a go on my single speed). Remember though: the weather is always in flux this time of year. Be sure to check the forcast on the day of the ride and to bring appropriate clothing. You will also need lights for darkening conditions.
If you have any questions about unsupported long distance riding or this monthly series, PLEASE ASK ME!
