Eat enough turkey on Thursday to fuel this Category 2 hill climb on Friday! (Or maybe registering for this ride will be motivation to not eat so much...)
This ride climbs the Catoctin Mountain; from Thurmont to Camp David is a 6 mile 1360 foot climb at an average 4.5% grade with a max of 9.6%. After running the ridge at the top, enjoy a 7 mile 1100 foot downhill back to the car. Ride is a short 15 miles. If that is not enough, we can tack on a covered bridge or two on relatively 'flat' ground.
I will check the weather as the date nears to confirm start time and holding the ride. Register to get automatic updates.
