B/BB (MH) * 73 * MD * 8:30 AM * Twice Across the River from POR * POR

No ferry, no mountains--just great riding with an Ice Cream break...we did this ride (cued by Jim Quinn) last October and I promised to do it again in late spring to enjoy the ride with leaves on the trees and warmer weather...So here it is...a moderately hilly ride (only 4315 ft, 59 ft/mi) with two rest stops (and optional 3rd for ice cream) covering some beautiful country roads in VA and MD.

No ferry, no mountains--just great riding with an Ice Cream break...we did this ride (cued by Jim Quinn) last October and I promised to do it again in late spring to enjoy the ride with leaves on the trees and warmer weather...So here it is...a moderately hilly ride (only 4315 ft, 59 ft/mi) with two rest stops (and optional 3rd for ice cream) covering some beautiful country roads in VA and MD.

From POR we go over the Potomac through Waterford (short ride on W&OD trail) Purceville and finally Lovettsville via Hillsboro Rd, Mountain Rd (and others) then downhill back into MD through Brunswick.

Then up to Burkittsville (taking Mountain Church Rd (one of my favorites with a fun decent) over to South Mountain Dairy for an Ice Cream optional rest stop...YUM!! (water available). We continue through Middletown, Jefferson and back to POR.

We avoid all the hard climbs...No Stumptown, No Gapland, No Reno Monument and No Teen Barnes. We even take the tunnel and miss Marlu Ridge...So this should be a relatively easy ride for the "Bs" and "BBs".

"A" riders are welcome to join and ride at their own pace.

No go if rain at the start. Check the PPTC Forum if the weather is iffy.
