Middle Patapsco Mountain Bike Ride, Directors Cut Sponsored by The Bicycle Escape & Single Speed Outlaw Factory Team
Ride Leader: Jon "BALER" Schultz
Location: Meet at lower parking lot A in historic Ellicott City, 1241 Oella Ave, Ellicott City, MD 21043
Date: August 30, Saturday, Meet-up at 8:45 am, we'll roll-out at 9:00 am sharp. Ride will about 4-5 hours.
Post-ride: Food and beverages are optional, but there are some nice options on main street.
Ride Level: Moderate. We will be enjoying the ride, but expect some technical terrain and to put miles down efficiently. Riders should have some similar long rides under their belts this season. Description: This will be a mountain bike ride starting in Ellicott City, and then venturing north in Patapsco. Similar to the recent Patapsco Epic, but we'll take some different trails, especially around Ellicott City. Water stops are infrequent in the middle, so plan to carry enough water to last you for at least 3 hours of riding. Plan to carry all the food/snacks/tools/tubes you might need. This is an adventure ride, so bring a fun spirit and expect things may not go perfect.

Ride Leader: Lynn Grasso
Location: Main Gambrill parking lot on right
Date: Monday, September 1 from 10 am - 12 pm
Ride level: Intermediate/Casual pace
Description: This is an off-road ride for women who'd like a social ride for a couple hours, stopping at intersections and only going as fast as the most casual-paced rider :) Some climbs, logs, roots but nothing you can't get off and walk over/through. A no-stress, fun ride, with snacks in the parking lot afterward. Come with your camelback and a spare tube, gloves, nutrition bars and shotblox if necessary.
