Casual ride group with a moderate option/Ride leader: Dave Van Stone, 443-286-8659 (no rain date)
Ride description: Representatives of the Howard County Police Pathway Patrol Unit will be joining us for this ride! Ride features mostly gentle terrain on paved and unpaved trails closed to vehicular traffic. The ride will depart from the East Columbia 50+ Center/Library parking lot. This ride will follow an out-and-back route, so riders can shorten or extend their individual rides by turning around at one of several points along the route, designated by the ride leader.
The ride will follow trails and low-traffic streets and proceed clockwise around Lake Elkhorn to the Patuxent Branch Trail, then continue along the Patuxent Branch Trail to the truss bridge which crosses the Little Patuxent River. Riders who elect to turn around at the bridge will limit their ride to 8 miles as per the Ride With GPS link: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/13279854
Riders who would like to venture off the paved trail to the unpaved groomed trail will continue to Volmerhausen Road. Those who elect to turn around there will complete a 10-mile ride as per the Ride with GPS link: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/13530034
Those riders who choose to complete the entire route will proceed across Vollmerhausen Road and continue along the Patuxent Branch Trail to Savage Park (12-mile round trip) with the option of continuing all the way to the historic Savage Mill for a complete round trip of about 13 miles as per the Ride with GPS link: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/13091684
After a brief rest stop at the mill, where refreshments and restrooms are available, the ride will return, with some minor modifications, along the Patuxent Branch Trail and local side streets to end at the starting point. The pace of the ride will be leisurely, about 10 MPH, as is appropriate for trail riding. Because portions of the Patuxent Branch Trail consist of unpaved groomed surfaces and wooden decking, caution should be exercised on these surfaces. Although this route is suitable for road bikes, wider hybrid and mountain bike tires are also recommended.

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. 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 2016 cycling season. A $10 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 firstname.lastname@example.org. 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 email@example.com.
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 Jennifer Lee.
