The Four Reservoirs Tour

Time to bring back this old Ramble route. Last ridden in 2011, the 4 Res route is fun, scenic and full of hard climbs. Ride w/GPS is lying to estimate 6200ft. of climbing. On-route Garmins have calculated 7900ft. But let’s not dwell on the difficulties, let’s think of the beautiful vistas we’ll have at those heights and don’t forget the equal number of feet downhill we’ll be riding! And of course, there’s Baltimore’s wonderful waterways to enjoy. All that, plus my company, and you won’t even notice the hills.

Let’s do it shall we?

    Not so fast. Started at 630 and minimized the breaks. Home at 3. I am happy with the pace. Quads are not. My Garmin also indicated 500 ft more climbing than the Gettysburg ride.

    re: Mike H.,
    for a moment, I considered reversing the route which would’ve brought us Franklintown to D.Hill around 5PM!

    You just get in from riding it today? Fast.

    Nice ride Bob. Druid Hill park to Franklintown is a little more interesting at 230 in the afternoon than first thing in the AM.
