Ride Schedule June 2012
June 2 (Sat) 8:00 am CC 48
Taneytown Memorial Park
Ride with Frederick Meetup Cycling Group
This ride will also include riders from the Frederick Meetup Cycling Group. A 48 mile ride through beautiful southern PA countryside. Mostly rolling terrain. Meet in the parking lot closest to the school (On MD 140). We pass several convenient stores along the way for those that wish to stop, though I am only planning one formal stop at the 27 mile mark. The cue sheet available is available here. No go on wet roads.
June 9 (Sat) 8:00 AM CC 55
Elmer Wolfe Middle Elementary School, Union Bridge
Gettysburg Battlefield Tour
A 55ish mile ride from Union Bridge to Gettysburg and back. Some hills in/out of Union Bridge. Rolling hills throughout ride. This ride will include a large portion of the Gettysburg Battlefield Tour route. This is one of my last longer training rides before my Iowa trip. I need to be back in Union Bridge by 12:30-1p.m. Maybe a quick stop for a snack in Gettysburg. Cue sheets will be provided to enable those that wish to ride faster or slower than me to do this ride at their own pace.
June 17 (Sun) 9:30 AM C 33
Easy Covered Bridges
Join us for an easy paced ride through Frederick County's covered bridges. Lots of photo ops, if you are so inclined. We will regroup as necessary and no one will be dropped. We'll stop for food/lunch in Emmitsburg and wherever else the mood strikes.
June 24 (Sun) 9:30 AM B 46
One Tough Hill And A Lot Of Fast Flats
About 46 miles. We'll do Catoctin Hollow road as fast or as slowly as you like, regroup, then run up pretty flat roads to Emmitsburg for a snack and a regroup — then straight back to Utica. Other than the hill, we'll average 18 to 19 mph, and pacelining is encouraged.
We’re always looking to add more rides. If you would like to lead a ride contact email@example.com.
Mondays 6:15 PM C 15–25 Taneytown Memorial Park
The route will vary each week depending on the location of road construction, the weather, the phase of moon, and what Stuart had for lunch. Rides will get longer when there is more light. Meet in the big parking lot by the football field.
Tuesdays 6:15 pm B+ 28 Utica Park
Hills and Pacelines
This ride proceeds gently but swiftly to the bottom of Catoctin Hollow Road where we'll go our own pace up the four-mile climb. We'll regroup at the top; then descend and regroup again at MD77 before the long descent into Thurmont, where we'll regroup once more. Then we'll ride safely in a smooth paceline at 20+ mph back to Utica District Park. Cuesheet provided on request. Expect to work a bit. Less strong riders are not expected to take a pull in the paceline if they do not wish.

Wednesdays 6:00 pm CC 15–20
Utica Wednesdays CC
The popularity of the Utica Wednesday rides led to some very large groups last year, so we split it into rides. This one is a CC ride and if you want to ride fast you should go on this ride, but there are no pacelines. The ride is planned to get back before it is dark, so the ride is shorter early in the year and will get longer as we get into summer.
