Back on Track with the Pancake Intercept

The ride this Sunday is the Pancake Intercept, a ride up to Union Bridge for an all-you-can-eat breakfast at the firehouse. Rolling through old farms and craggy woods of Carroll county makes this a great Autumn ride. Somehow, it’s gotten more off-schedule than on. This puts it back in it proper season.

If you’re new to this ride, then you need to know a few things: it’s hilly, not crazy, but taxing for sure. There are unpaved sections on this ride- maybe 5-10 miles total. There can be some gravely parts or sections slippery with leaves, but it’s super fun and beautiful on any bike. You need $8 cash for breakfast. There is no ATM and nowhere else to eat in Union Bridge. The beginning of the ride is quick, in order to get to breakfast in time, the 3rd section is a long stretch with a break in Boring, MD. The last stretch will be familiar Balt. county roads home. Also, you will absolutely need strong lighting, front and rear.
