75 mile Glen Burnie to Sykesville Loop

Here is a link to a route from my Glen Burnie neighborhood out through Patapsco Valley State Park and past Columbia. It loops around out in the countryside near Sykesville on US-32 and comes back, avoiding major highways. A section of the BWI bike trail can be easily substituted for Dorsey Rd. south of the airport.

Old Rag 70 Miles - Culpeper, VA

Here is a Google Maps link to a ride I mapped based off of available cue sheets. It is a nice 70 mile ride through the foothills of the Blue Ridge in Virginia. It takes roads that pass by trailheads leading to Old Rag Mountain and Shenandoah National Park. I've hiked all through that area but haven't ridden there; I'm looking forward to trying this route out in the spring.
