Departure Location: MDOT Headquarters Parking Lot, 7201 Corporate Center Dr, Hanover, MD 21076
Ride description: Park in the lot across from the HQ building -- go to the back of the parking lot. Group Riding Basics (& Maybe More) -- This will be a "How-To" session: We will cover the elements of "what you need to know," then some on-the-road bike and traffic handling skills, including, maybe, pacelining (you don't need to go fast to get the benefit of pacelining). This will be a lesson in group riding, so even though we may break into smaller packs, we will try to stick together. The basic course is a 5.6-ish mile loop with 240 ft of climbing, i.e., about as flat as one can find around here, but there will be stretches of rough road. We'll do the basic course at least a couple times, then tackle New Ridge Road to/back the BWI Rental Car facility (where there will be indoor plumbing), and then might add a Patapsco State Park or BWI loop at the end.

Additional Notes: BE WARNED: There are NO plumbing facilities at the ride start (unless MDOT HQ lets us in), so come appropriately prepared and supplied with H2O and fuel of your choice.
NOTE 1: There will be an element of spontaneity to this because what we practice will depend on how it goes.
NOTE 2: I may ask more experienced riders to help.

Departure location: 12315 Benson Branch Rd, Ellicott City, MD 21042
Description: This is a repeat of last year’s route with escape options if it is too hot. It is the 5th Annual Lunch with Joyce. The ride starts and ends at my house. Most of this route is familiar to many of you. Typical west Howard Co. roads, largely no shoulders. Fair number of hills. The challenge is Henryton Road which involves a 2 mi long descent before a loooong climb back up hill from the Middle Patuxent River, where we will have a scenic rest stop. This road is shady so while the climb is long, it shouldn’t be too bad. Be at my house no later than 9:15 am.
