About the Event

Let’s plan to meet at District-Harley-Davidson with kickstands up at 9:30am. July 18th is bound to be hot so let’s get started early. This will be a picnic ride to Washington Monument State Park (WMSP) on South Mountain near Middletown Maryland (gotta be cooler on the top of a mountain). Everyone should plan on bringing their own sandwiches and drinks. We will stop at a 7-11 on the way there so if you don’t bring anything you can always buy something to eat there. This ride will take an indirect but fun 61 mile route to the park on some seldom seen roads. After lunch we will take the scenic route to South Mountain Creamery (SMC) and from there head home via a fun 58 mile winding route. Altogether we will make 4 rest stops including the stops at WMSP and SMC. The picnic will use the picnic area adjacent to the WMSP parking area. For those wishing to hike from the picnic area to the Washington Monument it’s ¼ mile up the Appalachian Trail and it is a pretty tough hike so you may want to bring some lighter or more appropriate footwear. Hope everyone can make it. Please arrive on time gassed up and ready to go.

Total Miles: 119 Highway Miles: 2 Stops: 4
