Reminder about the third Saturday of the month Breakfast Ride at 10 am at the Old Town Diner, 307 Main St, Myersville, MD 21773. It's the most important mile of the day. Who's coming?

I'll be Spring Flingin' at Morton's event. I do hope to catch one of these in June or July!

I have a nice mountain & valley ride planned for those who want to join in after grub. I live on Catoctin Mountain and know some sweet roads with low traffic that make you forget you're in MD and think you are riding the foothills of the Alps. I'll be riding my F800R with its spankin' new Metzelers, so the route is all on pavement but some asphalt is a little rough and lots of corners -- i.e. fun! These roads are as nice (possibly better) than the Spring Flingers are enjoying [hush - don't anyone tell them ;) ]
Still room for a couple more to join up yet still keep a comfy small group ride.

Still time left to get to Myerville for many of you. Perfect riding conditions - might have to put on the vented jacket for the first time this year.

Nice gathering for chow & a ride thru the MD woods. Brian, Jerry, Shane, Dave, Jon, Ed & me. The ride was great, well it was after Ed took over - I learned that leading the group over Hamburg Road not once but twice was better for the adventure bikes than the touring & sports rigs :emb: Anyway, Ed showed us many largely traffic-free roads in my backyard, and we had ice cream in a (deconsecrated) church before heading back home.

Wasn't that Gambrill Park Rd. we road twice? :shock: The Light Truck hit bottom a few times, so I slowed to keep from breaking anything. The rest was all good, had to get to another meet so I skipped the ice cream. Had fun, see ya at the rally.

Ed's right -- to paraphrase Duane Eddy, Hamburg is "4 miles of bad road" which is good road if you have the suspension for it.

Gambrill Road is 10 mile of smooth sweepers at the top of Catoctin Mountain. Scott
