Looking for a long route from NoVa to Baltimore - April 13, 2008, 04:03 PM

The thread title maybe somewhat misleading. I have to be in Baltimore for a B-Day Party in couple of weeks.

The party is Saturday Night. I'd like to leave NoVa Friday afternoon and head towards some good roads in that *general* area. Ride Saturday and roll in to Bmore Sat night. Any ideas MD peeps?

+1...kinda.

Lookin for a long way round route to B'more from NoVa - got fam up there and gettin tired of the parkway and/or 95. Want to make it more of a ride than a commute. Ideas?

When you are a new rider, you are mostly relying on luck to survive. You start with a full bag of luck and an empty bag of experience -- the idea is to fill up the experience bag before the luck bag runs out.

Depends on how long you want to make it .... scenery wise, you can take 15N to 28E all the way to 270 or 97 ... not too fast though. Or go further and hit WV then up to Hagerstown and slab it

I used to commute from Columbia to Dunn Loring and would take 270/Falls Rd/28/97/108 ... can be a decent relaxed ride but nothing too exciting.

Thanx man...the 15N/28E/270 sounds good, I'll give it a shot. When u say 'not too fast' are there a lot of lights, ect like when u head up RT40 from B'more to Del?

Heh .. I'll put it this way.

Month or so ago the wife and I were caging it to Columbia. Usually an hour taking 495/95 or 29. We intended to take 15 to 70 (about 90-100 min). We took 15 to 28 to 97/108 and it was about 2.5 hours. It's just slow. Lots of 35mph stretches and pretty countryside, but not having ridden it on a bike, not sure how much fun it would be.

At least taking 28/97/108 you have some fun stretches. And 108 at Homewood Rd, take a left and there's some fun little riding. Of course that's headed the wrong direction there too

I'll sleep on it and see what I can think of to make it interesting

Oh I got some roads for you, Loosey. I've been exploring the area. I can totally set you up, but it'll be in a day or two and by PM.

Ha, I just got emailed that this thread was finally replied to. I posted back in April, so this particular instance isn't valid, but I do have some friends up there and just started a joint venture with another engineer in Elicott City. So I'm still looking for routes!

I passed a sign for the Patsco (sp?) place you mentioned when I first met with the guy last month. I was in my car though, and din't have time to spare that day anyway.
