I did a partial M2M check-out ride this morning, in the rain no less, and it got me really psyched to get the bike rolling with y’all on Sunday. I tweaked the route a little bit and have the final map and cuesheet posted below. I will bring cuesheets to the start. If you use a GPS, click the map/gps link below. Along the right column of Ride w/GPS hit the “Export” tab where you’ll see links to gps files. This route has a lot of cues and using GPS will be helpful.
I expect you’ve got yourself in good shape to finish M2M comfortably. This week you should spend your time preparing your bike and supplies. Double check your equipment: bike, tires, lights, clothing, glasses, sunscreen, water and cell phone. Be sure everything’s ready the night before the ride.
The M2M route is a combination of paved trails, bike lanes and public roads. We stop for food and bathroom breaks 3 times. Twice at a convenience store near Laurel, MD and once for lunch at Union Station in DC. Bring money for food. You won’t need a lock, there are enough of us to guard bikes while others are inside.
Oh yeah, get psyched. This is a lot of fun.
