Ride 46 miles west. Turn around & back to the start. March 2nd.

To Frederick, On Frederick is a classic winter ride for the Ramble. Nice and simple is good when you’re distracted by cold temps and poor road conditions. I’m hoping our weather will be better than what last year’s riders faced:

A snowy start to the 2013 2Fred/OnFred

From Carroll Park we simply ride west on Frederick rd. We take a quick break in Mt. Airy and on to Frederick, MD. In the past I’ve stopped at a nice sandwich shop on Patrick st just inside the city. Last year the group went to a brew pub. I guess we’ll have to see where we wind up this time.

The return to Baltimore is nearly the same in reverse. Big rolling hills through historic Howard county farmland. There’s a lot of climbing on this ride- nothing too sharp or long, but enough to keep you warm throughout the whole route. As usual, the group takes it nice and steady, keeping the pace at 13-15mph. There’s 11hrs of daylight now, so I’m switching back to an 8AM start. Ask questions if you got em.
