Print yourself a cue sheet from the link below, or export the route from RWGPS.

  • Date/Time: Sunday, June 17th 2018. Meet at 7:45AM. Leave PROMPTLY at 8:10AM
  • Start Location: Baltimore Washington Monument
  • Map/GPS: M2M Map/GPS  (click “export” in upper right for GPS)

  • Cost:  None. Bring $ for lunch and snacks at local businesses
  • Assistance/Sag:  None. (except help from fellow riders)
  • YOU RIDE AT YOUR OWN RISK

IMPORTANT! READ THIS BEFORE RIDING M2M

WHAT’S THE RIDE LIKE? M2M is a little of everything. There will be fast and slow riders, skinny and fat tire bikes, racers and bike party people. There has been groups of only 10 riders in rain and groups of 100 in nice weather. M2M goes rain or shine. We ride a steady average pace of about 13MPH. There are hills, but none more strenuous than a long ride through your neighborhood. The roads to DC are as safe as riding in Baltimore. Most of the route is surprisingly scenic and the DC trail system is very relaxing. We’ll stop 3 times: a break at the 25 mile point, a lunch at Union Station in DC and a break at the 75 mile point. I will bring a few cue sheets, but mostly you will be following ride leaders.

Are you in this pic from M2M2008? I’ll buy you a beer at Irish Times if you make the 10th anniversary. I’ll even extend the offer to anyone who rode with Boson the same year!3037910057_293eb9cba8_o

Keep on rollin: Chesapeake Beach on 6/4

IMG_2271_2This route is always a nice followup to M2M. It usually attracts a sizable group of speedy riders who start from BWI. I like to ride in from Baltimore and take it easy. There are a couple hilly sections on this route, but mostly it’s a flat and fast tour of Anne Arundel county roads and the western Chesapeake coastline. Coming?

 DETAILS:

  • The Chesapeake Beach Ride 102 mi., 4400ft.
  • Date/Time: Sunday, June 4th @8AM  (SEE NOTE BELOW FOR EARLIER START)
  • Start: Dixon/BWI STARTMAP
  • Route Map (click EXPORT for GPS files): ROUTEMAP
  • Cue Sheet (print one, or ask me to bring an extra): CUESHEET

IMPORTANT: There will be an earlier alternate start for those wanting to begin from Baltimore. Meet @7AM at Carroll Park (south corner). We will ride 11 miles to the BWI start.

Good, good, fun. Thanks y’all.

I had a blast riding Monument to Monument last Sunday: great riding weather, lots of daring bike riders, excitement riding up to the Washington Monument. The afternoon was even more fun, riding easy with a group of Ramble regulars, taking our time and enjoying the day.

How’d your ride go? Got some pics or a ride report? I can post a link to them here.

I counted 60 riders at the start. There were at least 15 more who joined along the way.
