My boyfriend and I are heading to MD for the first time this weekend and want to know if anyone can show us around. We're interested in a beginner-intermediate ride. Either Saturday or Sunday would work.

Thanks! Amanda

Amanda,

We are doing a group ride at 9:00 on Saturday the 4th. There is a thread somewhere, I will try to find it. We will be meeting at the Saffins Pond Lot

The middle parking icon is where we are meeting. It is the second lot as you drive up Weldon Road.

Jeez, this might end up being one of the biggest group rides of the year the way it is going (at least biggest group ride in North Jersey).

Awesome...long range forecast look like a crisp fall morning...'looking like it might be one helluva group ride...

Between you me and shaggz, we can easily split the group up into two packs. Shaggz can take the slower group :cool:

We had something like 26 at the Stephen's ride and I think there were over 90 people at the first intermediate group ride at JORBA Fest.

See you Saturday, Amanda.

I was talking MTBNJ ride...hmmm...don't think we're at 26, but that'd be cool.

Can't I take the slower group???:D:D

We'll play it by ear depending on how many folks show and what everybody feels like doin'. If the turn out is large, it'll make sense to do warm up on the rail bed instead of the WMA (I don't want a ton of people hating me as I drag 'em through that first part of the WMA before they're warmed up) ...then when we hit Saffin those who are still feeling energetic can loop the WMA w/a nice cool down on the rail bed.

I just assumed people would know that I was speaking of Mahlon when I used MD. Sorry :)

Anyway I know I said that Saturday would work but after thinking about it... Sunday would be better because we'll have some running around to do that morning before heading up there as we're camping up there saturday and sunday.

If anyone is riding beginner-intermediate Sunday let me know.

Sorry for the confusion.

This may be better from the picnic area. Full outside loop anti-clockwise then those that can't climb stonegate just take the 2 track up to the top and regroup.Whatev..............

I *might* be able to get out for a ride Sunday AM.

My wife is helping with her woman's club 5k run Sunday AM...so I gotta' see if my stepson is gonna' be here to watch the kiddies. Even with that, I'd have to have the ride wrapped by 11-ish.

I'll corner everybody later tonight to see what is happening...and will let you know. If I don't get back to you sometime tomorrow, have Brad come and whop me up side the head:D
