A(H) * 70 * MD * 9:00 AM * Hell's Delight * Monocacy Middle School (MMS)

This is a great ride that will take us on familiar roads as well as a couple that might be unfamiliar. With just a few miles on the legs we start the climb up Hamburg followed by a hair- raising descent down Highland School Road. The next significant climb is up Hell's Delight followed by the descent into Fort Ritchie to our first rest stop. The descending continues into the Harbaugh Valley and then we start the climb out of the valley including up Hampton Valley Road.

This is a great ride that will take us on familiar roads as well as a couple that might be unfamiliar. With just a few miles on the legs we start the climb up Hamburg followed by a hair- raising descent down Highland School Road. 

 

The next significant climb is up Hell's Delight followed by the descent into Fort Ritchie to our first rest stop.  The descending continues into the Harbaugh Valley and then we start the climb out of the valley including up Hampton Valley Road.  The next descent is into Thurmont for the second rest stop. 

 

Be sure to fuel up for more climbing up Catoctin Hollow and Mink Farm Road (portions unpaved) before we make our way back to MMS.  This is an aptly named ride. It's tough with 7000 feet of climbing.

 

There are two rest stops, one in Fort Ritchie and the other in Thurmont.

 

No go in rain or on wet roads.
