Beautiful ride to Rocks State Park with a brief rest stop in the park and a snack stop at High's in Jarrettsville. If you love climbing, you will get a "rush" from the two one-mile climbs out of Rocks St Park - quiet, scenic tree-lined roads with rolling up-hills and a couple short steep sections but nothing really difficult. There will be a half mile downhill between climbs to give you a break. The first climb is familiar (Rocks Chrome Hill,) the second may be new for you (Rush Rd.) We will get the climbing over all at once and roll on easy terrain and safer roads into Jarretsville - Old Federal and Rt 165 with a wide shoulder.

Enjoy homemade soup, baked goods and other lunch items at the end of the ride. Take a stroll through the Barn Market with a variety of vendors. Port-a-pot at ride start. Tell parking attendants that you are with the bike group.

Directions: From I-695: I-83 N to Exit 24 (Belfast Rd), S @ SS at end of ramp to Ensor Mill for 1.1 mi, L on York Rd for 0.5, look for "C's Barn Market" sign on R (immediately after school crossing sign and before Corbett Rd.)
