3 Untried Rides

3 Untried Rides

I'm filling my upcoming weekends with long rides, and have come across 3 supported rides that sound interesting.  I was wondering if anyone has tried them before.
They are the Cumberland Valley Century, 103 miles out of Boonsboro; the Ride to See starting in Galena, Kent County, MD and the Savage Century in Delaware in October.  The Savage boasts of some fierce grades; the Ride to See is probably the opposite of fierce grades and I imagine the Boonsboro ride isn't far off the CWC (6,300ft total).  Anyone have any experience of these?

Done 'em all. The Ride to See is mostly flat, the Cumberland Valley century is rolling (easier than CWC; no mountains), and the Savage is truly savage; makes the CWC seem like the Flatlands tour.

Another nice out-of-bounds ride is the Shore Fire Century put on by the White Clay Bicycle Club. It's fast, flat, and well-supported.

I'll pamper myself with a supported ride this year. Thinking about riding this again:

Renee's got the century bug! I love it.
I would definitely be up for carpooling to this one- it's a longish ride down there.
Terrain is flat with a few small rollers, great food, great views of the Potomac.

So have I - looking to do 10 or 11 this year, including the 4 Reservoirs.  Dogwood, Spooks Hill, Gunpowder and Old Bosley on the same ride with Lake Ave at mile 96. Bliss, or whatever that is called. Enough to straighten an English dog's teeth.

The Bay Country and Back Roads were very pleasant last year: I'd recommend both.  The Back Roads (in Berryville, VA, near Winchester) had [sounds of angelic trumpets] salty baked spuds at the rest stops.  Marvellous.
