Urbana-Poolesville-Urbana 40 miles (some hills)

Start is at 10:00 am at the Urbana Commuter Parking Lot (South Lot).
Pace: CC 12-14 mph.After the holiday, come burn some calories! This ride is a club favorite. Very scenic, rolling terrain through Western Montgomery County.
We do go on one stretch of gravel road, but it is fairly tame.
Riders will have the option to climb Sugarloaf Mountain. This is a mild climb, about 1.4 miles. hope the entire group will try it, but riders can opt to wait at the bottom. The effort will be rewarded with spectacular views!
We will regroup as often as necessary. Nobody will be left behind.
There will be a rest stop at the McDonald’s in Poolesville (21 mile mark).

Ride Leader: Dave Sweeney
I will bring Cue Sheets.
