Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. I did. Way too much driving, so I’m eager to get out on a ride.
The Ramble is doing an “on again-off again” of the Baltimore & Annapolis trail this Sunday. I’ve made a few changes to the old route. We won’t get a lot of daylight this time of year AND, there’s a Ravens game downtown from 1PM-4PM. So I’ve made the route shorter, omitted the lunch stop and moved the start to Middle Branch park. We’ll begin promptly at 8AM. The route takes Belle Grove and Camp Meade down to the B&A trail. Then a long diversion over to Sandy Pt. park and a quick rest stop. South through Annapolis and down to Thomas Point park to get another big view of the Chesapeake. Returning north, we’ll have our 2nd rest stop and get back on the trail for the return to BWI. I’m hoping for arrival back into Baltimore by 2:30PM which should give us a safe window for getting home while the game is still going and the sun is still up. Beers will have to come afterwards.
Middle Branch park has easy parking and porta-pots, but no water. Rest stops are 30 miles apart.
