ABC Thurmont Covered Bridges Ride

  • 10/01/2019
  • 9:30 AM - 1:30 PM
  • Thurmont Community Park

It’s a relatively short ride (36 miles) but makes up for it by being very hilly (2300 feet of climbing).  The course is very scenic with three covered bridges, a view of the mountains, hopefully some fall colors and roads which are very lightly travelled (at least on a weekday – the leaf peepers only come out on the weekend!).  After the ride, those who are interested can join us for lunch at a nearby Italian restaurant.  I’ll have cue sheets so those who want to run ahead to the next covered bridge can do so.  This will be a no drop ride.  It starts in Thurmont Park, the same location where the Civil War Century starts.  From my house near the Bay Bridge, it’s about an hour and 30 minutes, so a bit less for many of you.  Start time will be 9:30.  There are porta-potties at the start as well as a McDonalds once you get in Thurmont.  One of the covered bridges has bathrooms but other than that we won’t be passing any stores or other facilities, so you’ll need to take water/snacks.
