    Distance: 126 miles

    start: Sunshine, Maryland

    End: Damascus Maryland



    This is a nice little ride through the country. As you start in Sunshine MD the traffic is a little more congested, but these backroads lead to Taneytown,where there isnt much traffic and passing cars is pretty normal.



    There are very little police presence.



    This route takes you through some nice twisty sections, and several open roads wher eyou can open up your bike. But there are some dangers as well, tight turns in which the road is not marked. And 1 steel grated bridge that comes up on a blind corner(look for signs).



    When you get to taneytown you can do loops of the smaller route as its a very nice deserted and isolated road. But be on the look out for cyclists and joggers.
