Next Ramble will be a February 3rd ride to Frederick, MD.
The first time I rode to Frederick on Frederick Rd. I didn’t use a cue sheet. It seemed ridiculous to bring one. I got lost and my friend Josh accidentally rode his bike up onto Interstate 70.
I use a cue sheet now.
Even so, this route is about as simple as it gets and that makes it a great winter route. Mostly, you just get yourself on the right road, put your head down and turn those pedals. If you do happen to look around while you’re riding you might be surprised how scenic the ride is. It is also hilly. No steep climbs, but Frederick Rd. is a constant roller coaster all the way out. After lunch, we do it all again in reverse.

Print your own cue or email me and I’ll bring a copy for you. I’m happy to help routing if you want a shortcut or want to pick up the ride after the start. Please contact me if you are interested in riding, but do not have prior experience riding long distance in winter.
