Thanks Steve. Came down Troyer yesterday from 23 and as I live just off of Wesley (Blue Mt) since they been repaving it I would just cut off onto Hunters Mill and come back up McComas. Yesterday coming down Troyer and when I got to the cutoff I noticed that is was paved so I continued to Mccomas on the nicely smooth finish surface. I did want to take it farther now to see how far it was finished either Sheppard or Markoe but that would have left me with Sheppard to Gerting or Markoe to Jim Pearce to Gerting and that the last hill on Wesley Chapel but I was getting hungry and didn't wanna see that hill. Is it just as smooth all the way past Markoe?

Troyer Road (at least the section from McComas up to Hunters Road which is where Balto/Harford Co meet) has been repaved and now has a nice smooth surface. Not sure how far south past McComas is done at this time.

Any 13-15 riders interested in doing the 16+ Blue Ridge Summit ride next Sat 6/11.

That's what I tried to tell the guy but he said it wasn't his fault. I not sure he understood.

Downes Rd that goes over Rt 83 near 7th district school (last bridge before Rt 439 going north) is schedule to be close the day after school closes and will be close until mid-August. The entire bridge is to be replaced.  Rode by there yesterday and saw the orange construction markings on the the road surface and spoke to one of the workers about the replacement.

Sad day in the Giro.  (Not sure if this was the correct place to put this topic).

And so what is your point?  By the way I've been a resident of Baltimore city for 30 years also as well as about 3 years of Baltimore county (just south of Towson) and for the last 24 years also Baltimore county, North of Towson all of which is a lot closer to Loch Raven and Joppa (which is in Towson) then Westside','Westport' & 'Pigtown is. But I don't understand what all this has to do with starting from Loch Raven and Joppa and riding to Lancaster and back. Bob probably wonders what ever happened to his original post.

Yes, it used to stop at the train museum for lunch but now it goes to a lunch place up the street. It has a really nice view of  Lancaster county just before you get into Strasburg. Back in the earl 80's 5 of us rode to Lancaster starting at the McDonalds at Loch Raven and Joppa (that used to be one of the BBC starting locations.) When we got into the town of Lancaster we were looking for a place to eat. We found a halfway house for drug and alcohol abusers who were having a bbq chicken cookout out front of their house on two very big grills and selling at a  very cheap price the biggest chicken pieces I've ever seen so we ate there. As we were eating and sitting around, one of them would come over to us and say something like "So how far did you ride" and of course we told them from Baltimore, and he responded with "So you're gonna  find a hotel and ride back tomorrow." No, we going to finish eating and ride back today.
He then went back shaking his head to his friends or housemates  (whatever they were) and another one would come over and say "Why did you lie to my friend, that wasn't nice" and we told him, we didn't lie and he walk away scratching his head. This went on for about 20 minutes. We finished eating the best chicken I ever had, said goodbye and left. The ride came out to be 160 miles and it was a warm up for our double century the following week.

Hey Bob,
Mark Tabb led a really neat ride starting from Conowingo Elementary School, 471 Rowlandsville Road 21918-1521 that goes right into Strasburg. The cuesheet in in the Cue library. It's called the Conowingo to Strasburg and is 69 miles.

I don't want to hear anything  about any accidents with any groundhogs, brings back bad memories. For those who don't know I hit a groundhog back in 1992 on a downhill (Vernon Rd) and put me in the hospital for 9 days with a severely lacerated right arm. The doctor was thinking of amputating until my better half fainted in the operated room when he said that. Then he decided to see what he could do. Results: I'm now minus a bicep's muscle in my right arm, (due to whatever I sliced my arm on in the accident) no big deal. Give me a dog any day, as a few people in the club know and have witness they go back home, sometimes with their tail between their legs when I bark back at them, they understand English, groundhogs don't.
