I have decided to delete my Sparks to Hampstead Cluster ride on Sunday. The weather is too uncertain to make a ride decision now. I will wait till Saturday to decide.

OOPs!! I may have made the cluster ride for Sunday too soon. After talking with Ellen, if her ride goes on Saturday, then she will add the longer 56 and 45 routes to her ride.
I will then add the 45 mile version of Seven Valleys (5 Valleys) to Steve's posting at a 13-15 pace for Sunday and not do another Hampstead ride.
Check the ride schedule for last minute changes.The weather can be difficult to schedule.

I have replaced my Sunday ride with Sparks ES to Hampstead. I have made it a cluster start by adding Ellen's cancelled Saturday ride to my ride. There will be 3 routes offered then. A 56 mile which also goes through Manchester, a 45 mile version which does not, and a 36 mile version which does go through the Patapsco.

Sunday's weather looks like the rain will be gone by the 10 AM start but the roads will be wet. The temperature looks like April weather-- in the 50's to almost 60.

Since the weather can be fickle, check the website for last minute changes or cancellations.

I have learned that the Rt 216 bridge before Myers is now open. So I will bring the 45 mile route for the long ride. This route is almost Carol's original ride.

Rich Burns is bringing cue sheets for 31 and 37 mile routes.

I will be leading Ellen Hochman's Whinery Tour Extended from 7th District. Not too hilly but some scenic back roads we don't ride very often. Rest stops at the Amish Market or Glen Rock.

At the request of some members, I will bring a 44 mile version of this ride. It is in the cue library as Western Regional Park to Damascus.

I have been informed that at 7AM a Duathlon will start at Western Regional Park which is adjacent to the Community Center. That may present some parking issues at the CC if the participants spill over to the CC parking area. I will come early and redirect riders if needed. Between the CC, the Park and 2 schools, there is a ton of parking at this location. It is just a matter making sure we have one place to meet.

Due the increased chance of storms tomorrow afternoon, I have change the start time to 8:30 AM from 9:30 AM. Leader will also offer short cuts to route if the weather is uncertain. I will be checking the weather forecast for tomorrow, and will cancel the ride if the chance of rain is too high.

Due to bridge repairs on Black Mills Rd just before Layman Rd, I created a slightly revised cue sheet named Thurmont Medium Detour 2019. I will be using this cue sheet for Saturday's ride. I have also updated the RidewithGPS TCX file.The detour adds about 0.4 miles to the ride. Please note the change if you have already printed the previous cue sheet or downloaded the TCX file.
