Half Century, Baltimore County

Wow this is a great bike ride.  Baltimore, Hereford and Hartford counties with rolling hills, beautiful scenery, nice roads,  English history and great flowers. Here are a few shots from our 2019 ride. Jim is smoking it

A ride shot from 2019

this year we went by the renactment of a World War 1  in some small town 

So here is the post from past years . We have a friend that has a very special home on the Susquehanna river in Pennsylvania.  Every year he organizes a trip from Western Run road @ hunt Valley and we have a leisurely ride up to his smoking cool river front home. Here are some shots from years gone by!! Thank you Ken

The route is through rolling terrine in Baltimore and Hartford Counties and it changes some times over the years.  It is a fun and an enjoyable time spent with friends.
