We have a ride this Sunday!
It kinda snuck up on me with all the holiday distractions. This Sunday’s route is a hilly and scenic route to the northeast I call the Pylesville Winter Warmer. It’s 92.4 miles with 2 short stretches of unpaved road and 7400ft. of climbing. Lunch will be at Amoroso’s.
This route is shorter than most Rambles. However, be prepared for a hilly ride, cold temps and be sure to have effective night-time lighting.
Earlier this month, we had a great ride down to DC to grab a Guinness (or two) at Fado’s. The weather turned out to be quite lovely and everyone was physically up to the task. Several mechanicals, numerous city traffic stops, a busy restaurant, and a return headwind slowed the group down so much that we had to put in a couple hours of riding in the dark. We all stuck together as a nice group though. Thank you to Mike, Dave, PJ, Ben (riding his retrodirect drive bike), Sam, Eric, Esther and special guest, Barry.
