This ride will start off from the Brunswick MARC train station parking lot. To arrive at the meeting location on South Maple Ave, go past the Brunswick train station on your right, cross 3 sets of train tracks, and park in the parking lot of your left.

 

The route will have 3 featured climbs. The first will be up Gapland Road to Gathland State Park. We’ll zoom down towards Harpers Ferry and then encounter the second featured climb up Hoffmaster Rd. We’ll have a chance to recover by cycling along the Potomac River (via roads) to Shepherdstown where we can refill water bottles and grab a quick snack.

 

From Shepherdstown, we’ll pass through Sharpsburg and then size up our last major climb up Reno Monument Road. We’ll make a quick stop at South Mountain Creamery before returning to Brunswick.

 

There are restrooms on the C&O canal near the Brunswick starting location.

 

The ride will be cancelled if the temperature is expected to be below 20 at the start time, or precipitation has occurred or expected during the time we’ll be riding. Check the PPTC Web site for last minute updates (a no-go decision will be made 2 hours before the scheduled start).
