%0A2018-10-13 10:00 %0A2018-10-13 10:00 America/New_York Gettysburg Tour I usually start the Gettysburg Battlefield tour in Thurmont, but this year the only weekend I don't have a conflict is the weekend of the Catoctin Colorfest - during which 20,000 people will fill the park we usually start from, as well as every other parking space in Thurmont.  So this year I'm starting the ride in Emmitsburg, at Emmitsburg Community Park, farther up US-15.  There's a silver lining, though: because the route to and from the battlefield is shorter, we can spend more time and mileage exploring the battlefield, visiting parts of it we've never been to before.  58 miles, 2750' of elevation gain.  Route map and GPS files are here: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/28723331?beta=false and the cue sheet is in the Cloud: https://goo.gl/T1N5Bg  This is a BYOQ (Bring Your Own Cue Sheet) Printed copies available by prior arrangement. Directions to Emmitsburg Community Park: From Alexandria or Arlington, take GW Parkway to I495 to I270 North to Frederick MD.  Continue on US-15N past Thurmont to Emmitsburg. Take a slight left onto US-15 Business N / S Seton Ave.  In 1 mi turn left onto Cedar Ave to Emmitsburg Community Park.  It's about 15 minutes beyond Thurmont, be sure to allow adequate time for travel. - Other Start Location MD
