Due to drizzle and wet conditions, I am cancelling the ride from Runneymeade Elem Sch to New Oxford.

9:00 am start at the New Freedom Rail Trail Cafe to the Rutters in Hanover. Rest rooms available at both ride start and rest stop. See ride schedule for more details.

Need advice

We rode tandem for quite a few years and even did 3 and 4 week tours. I started out with the bullhorn bars, but found I sat too upright most of the time and couldn't shift my position much. I ended up switching to drop handlebars and was much happier with the variety of positions. The drop bars will have to be wider than you would use on a road bike in order to fit around the captain's hips. They make dummy brake hoods for use as a stoker bar. Walt even cut off the brake levers so they wouldn't poke him.

Hope this helps,
Carol

Steve,
I think your first option for a detour would be best. I believe that Flohrs Church Rd turns to gravel before it merges with Tillie Town. Perhaps you can do a little exploring when you are out there on Tuesday.
