Thanks to Andy, Rita, Charlie, Carl and Gary for giving my Old Roads ride its first group outing. We rode a steady, easy ride through the hills of Baltimore and York counties, cutting across back road terrain, exploring century old farms, mill towns, and forest, finishing off with a recovery cookout at Andy and Ritas in Glen Rock. A challenging ride, but a ride that couldn’t be any better. Pics here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/27976837@N00/sets/72157630613706962/
I’ll roll this one again in the cooler weather of fall or early spring.

This ride can give you whatever you’re looking for- speed on flats, great water views, a great first attempt at a century, a fixed gear/single speed ride. There are a few hills, but not many. There are some beautiful farms, forest and views of the bay.
