Monthly Breakfast Ride Saturday the 15th

Postby bdimon » Wed Jul 12, 2017 7:17 am

Meet at 10 am at the Old Town Diner on Saturday, the 15th. After eating at my favorite breakfast place, we will ride. I'll bring route ideas and we will decide where to go over eggs and coffee.

Finally have a weekend not on the MSF range or with family obligations. Will see you at the diner and join the ride after. Looking forward to the usual crew and some new faces, too. I can regale you with my experiences at a recent Indian Demo Day. Scott

Saturday's weather forecast looks great. Low eighties in the Catoctin hills (cooler than the local forecast) and no chance of rain.

Maybe I'll wash my bike before I head up there. Nah, the dirt has been there so long, it's considered "heritage."

I plan to be there at 10.

I had not seen this post and started one last night under RTE. From the response there, it should be plus one more.

We had a great ride. Jerry, Mark, Rick, Brian, Scott, and I rode back roads to Harpers Ferry, Sharpsburg, and back to the South Mountain Creamery. The weather was perfect. Great ride, great day.

Thanks Bruce for leading an excellent ride. Lots of country roads with many turns. Definitely worth repeating in the future.

I captured it as a route on my GPS and have saved it here for others to enjoy:

I'll do that tonight. Those are some of my favorite roads in this area.

Below is a link to the .gpx file for the ride. This will certainly make it easier to follow than just the map.
