There seemed to be enough interest in some dirt road oriented rides in the Baltimore area, so I'm starting this thread. What I'm hoping happens here is that locals can post ride routes that include at least some dirt and we can plan/organize rides. Anyone is welcome to suggest a route or lead a ride, just remember it should include some dirt roads or at least some out of the way places. I'll start. Here is a route I have been wanting to do for some time. Its 70/30 paved to dirt and is big bike friendly. I have ridden about 75% of it in order to do some scouting and planning. There are 3 WATER CROSSINGS, but all 3 have concrete slabs under the water, so you'll be fine on a street bike with decent tires... but you're going to get dirty. "A" is my proposed meeting point, its a park and ride. "B" is Loch Raven Reservoir, you find your way home from there. There is parking along the road at "B", in case we want to stop and talk about how epic our ride was before everyone heads home. https://maps.google.com/maps?saddr=...9,10,11,12,13,14,15,16,17,18,19,20,21,22&z=13 I'm booked solid for the next 3 weeks, but would be happy to lead this ride sometime late April or early May. If you want to join, post up and we'll pick a day and time. I'm up for changing the meeting spot, to find a place convenient for everyone. I'm looking forward to riding and meeting some fellow Bmore riders.
