%0A2017-10-15 09:30 %0A2017-10-15 09:30 America/New_York The Other Side "THE OTHER SIDE" This is a hilly ride, but nothing major per Karen's request. This time we are going to explore both west and east sides of the South Mountain. From Myersville's side to get to "The Other Side" to Boonsboro, we take somehow steeper Reno Monument Rd.. We remain on this side until we reach Smithsburg for the 1st stop at mile 21. After the rest stop we are heading towards Edgemont and after reaching Rouzerville, to cross the South Mountain, we take Old 16th Rte. up and back to the east side. Be extremely careful when crossing Rt-16 @ mile 32.4. Thru Blue Ridge Summit to Highfield-Cascades for the 2nd rest stop at mile 35.2 (no restrooms) After the rest stop, for the next several miles we will be on familiar roads: Wise, Raven Rock, Quirauk School, Foxville until we reach Pleasant Valley Rd. Once we reach mile 45, what remains is mostly a rolling downhill. For those enjoying scenery, most of the flat and downhill sections are open to beautiful vistas while climbing is done either in shaded or populated areas. If you are itching for more demanding climbing you can always add High Rock or Lambs Knoll summit. All roads previewed and mostly in very good condition. RIDE START: We meet at Park & Ride in Myersville, parking on Ventrie Rd. No restrooms, but few gas stations and McDonald's nearby.
