Old Frederick Rd. closed near Utica Park
Forum: Road Problems

BBC has several different rides that start at Utica Park in Frederick. We usually take Old Frederick Rd. from Rt. 15 to get to the park.  Old Frederick Rd. is currently closed from Old Frederick Terrace going north. This web page 
says it is closed for bridge construction. If you look at the map (click on the link) it looks like Utica Park is not accessible.  I sent an email to their Office of Highway Operations asking them to verify whether it is accessible.

Peace-a-Pizza ride is CANCELLED for Saturday 7/29/17 due to forecast of rain and flooding.

The latest newsletter from AARP has an article about bicycling in Maryland (it only focuses on bike trails, not riding on public roads).  It includes a quote from Bob Carson.

Grist Mill Trail is still open
Forum: Road Problems

In Patapsco State Park off Rt. 1 in Elkridge, the Grist Mill Trail and the bridge to Ilchester/River Rd. was supposed to close last fall during the removal of the dam. It is currently open and there are no signs concerning any upcoming closure.

Also, the Old Elkridge parking lot on nearby Railroad Ave. now has signs saying Private Property, Cars Will Be Towed.  So we definitely can't use that as a ride start, and everyone should avoid parking there.

Davidsonville to Deale ride today 9/3/16 due to prediction of rain showers beginning in Deale at 8:00am.

The Peace-a-Pizza ride has moved from Saturday July 4th to Sunday July 5th because there is a running race, the Firecracker 10K, in Arbutus on Saturday morning that closes Selford Rd. and Francis Rd. (see map ). Since there is a 60% chance of rain on Saturday and 0% on Sunday, I am moving the ride to Sunday.

Does anyone know whether Race Rd. in still closed below Hanover Rd. in the Elkridge/Hanover area?  It was closed in June to repair a slope failure.
