It’s been a little while since I’ve scheduled the Point to Point ride. This was one of the first Ramble rides. It’s scenic and flat, following the ins and outs of the northwestern shore of the Chesapeake and tributaries. Beginning in Baltimore, we visit scenic water views all the way north to Gunpowder State Park.
Local and federal governments seem to be fussier than ever about us cyclists trespassing on public properties at Sparrows Pt and North Pt (two of my favorite parts of the old route). So, rather than giving us all criminal records, I decided to re-vamp the route, adding new parts, and removing others.
A couple of weeks back, I gave the new route a test ride and I like what I’ve got. It will be our first Ramble of the new year, scheduled for Sunday, January 4th 2015.
I will give the link to the final cue sheet soon, but for now:
Date: Sunday January 4th, 2015
Start time: meet up at 7:50AM, roll out at 8:10
Start Location: Federal Hill Park.
