Tuesday, May 30 @ 10:00 am / Casual ride group / No rain date
Ride leader: John Ingalls, 410-262-6033 or 667-786-3071
Departure location: Ellicott City 50+ Center, 9401 Frederick Road, Ellicott City, 21042 (side lot). Normal start time is 10:00 am, but if the forecast is for over 90 degrees F, the start will be moved up to 9:30 am, and will be announced at least a day ahead. If you are not sure, call the ride leader.
Ride description: The proposed route will use the south sidewalk in order to stay off Frederick Road for that segment of the ride. Traffic is otherwise expected to be light and roadways and paths smooth (Grey Rock Rd was recently resurfaced) except for the path that runs east of Columbia Road, which has a few potholes and many tree-root heaves through the macadam. Other road hazards to be noted are (1) boardwalks that are slippery when not completely dry, (2) numerous, wheel-eating storm-drainage grates having linear slots instead of safety mesh covering, and (3) absence of curb cuts or driveway aprons at some transitions between paths and roadway, where riders will have to dismount. We'll regroup at Columbia Road, again upon first reaching the schools, and finally upon returning to Grey Rock Road.

General Cycle2Health Information
Cycle2Health Howard County is a non-competitive, peer-led, bicycling club for adults of all ages and riding abilities, coordinated by the Health & Wellness Division of the Howard County Office on Aging and Independence (OAI). You must register to participate.
To participate in Cycle2Health Howard County (C2H), first review the Bicycle Guidelines, then register online or at any Howard County 50+ center during the 2017 cycling season. A $15 fee will be collected at the time of registration (renewed annually). To get C2H updates delivered to your inbox, registered participants may join the Cycle2Health Listserve and its associated Yahoo Group (Senior Spoken Here, not affiliated with the Office on Aging and Independence) to receive ride updates and cancellation notices. To join the listserve, send a blank email to email@example.com. To access a library of ride cue sheets and connect with other riders, add a note to request to join the Yahoo Group.
Rides take place during the week and on some weekends, during daytime hours, and depart from various locations in and around Howard County. Rides depart in the morning, with the exact departure time varying by route and season. Plan to arrive 15 minutes before the scheduled ride time to prepare yourself and bicycle for an on-time start.
To provide an opportunity for safe and enjoyable riding for all C2H participants, three different level rides are offered each week throughout the riding season:
Cue sheets will be made available in advance of the ride and riders are encouraged to drive the route to determine if the route is appropriate for them. Riders just getting back to riding or those who haven’t had experience riding in a group venue are encouraged to start with the Casual Ride group.
Guest riders are welcome to ride with C2H, but must have signed waivers; those under 18 must be accompanied by a responsible adult and must have their waiver signed by the guest rider's parent or legal guardian (not grandparent or other relative). All guests should be capable of sustaining the distance and speed established for the respective ride.
Instructional clinics are available at various times during the riding season. The instructional clinics focus on bike control, bike safety, rules of the road, and group riding etiquette. C2H registration is required to participate in the instructional clinics. For more information, email the clinic coordinator.
In the event of inclement weather, the ride leader may move the ride start time one hour earlier or later. Rain cancels the ride, although some rides do offer a rain date. Participants are encouraged to join the C2H list serve for ride updates and cancellations. If you would like to join the list serve, send a blank email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Each participant provides their own bicycle, helmet, water, spare tube, bicycle air pump, tools to change a flat tire, and snack/lunch money as rides may conclude with a lunch outing. Each participant should wear a road ID on all rides. A courtesy road ID is given to participants upon registration.
A bike with a solid frame that is fitted for your height and equipped with multiple gears to assist in managing hills. Bicycles should be in working order to ensure safe and enjoyable riding for both the participant and group. Courtesy bike checks are available to C2H participants at Mt. Airy Bicycle, Princeton Sports, and Race Pace Bicycles.
Dress for the weather, layers may be necessary in the spring and fall months. A neon, or other brightly colored shirt or jacket is recommended. Cycle2Health jerseys are available for purchase. If you would like more information, email Jeannie DeCray.
C2H Ride Leaders are experienced group bike riders who are familiar with the trails and roadways in Howard County. They are volunteers who wish to share their love of riding with others. For more information, email Jeannie DeCray or call 410 313-6535 (voice/relay).
