I can't do it this week, too busy at work and then heading down to Miami next week for a little vacation.

I was up on 211 last Tuesday. it was nice, roads were in good shape and almost no traffic. It is just a shame that it is so far away.

I need to find some places like that a little closer to the city.

Have fun.

Thats why I only try to go during the week. I try to get there early, make a couple of passes and get out of there early. I also don't screw around at all on 211 except for on the mountain itself. The cops are everywhere heading to and from 211.

same here, I pretty much take it real ease heading to the moutain, take a nice easy pass up and down both sides to check it out, then do 3 or 4 runs from the both of the East side over the top to the bottom of the West side and back. By then I am spent anyway so I just pedal my ugly ass home...

You guys know of any good rides in Maryland, say around Sugarloaf or along 270?

MikeV that is exactly what I do. I am trying to ride further and further away from where I live. Most people I run into like to drag race all over the place. It seems like most people are glad to haull ass up and down 210 or on the beltway and that just isn't for me. I don't like cars or straight roads. There are some pretty good roads around, but I'd just as soon head for the mountains. I don't live anywhere near Sugarloaf but I'll be glad to go check it out.

Same here, i spend too much time on the beltway as it is. I guess if I were more of a stunter I could entertain myself anywhere, but i enjoy pushing through the twisties much more than practicing wheelies.

Hey Young, I am off all this week,tried to ride up to skyline yesterday but it turned real nasty real quick. I am going up today as well,I could go tomorrow,thursday also. I know some really fun roads in between here and the mountains that are literally cop & traffic free,well almost. Tomorrows forecast looks good, let me know if ya wanna go!!!!!!!!! That goes for MikeV,as well or any one in the D.C. metro area. I dont care what you ride. Is there any local "squadron"?

My friends are the same way. I guess as I've gotten older I got to be more of a bitch. I don't do the real high speed runs anymore, at least not that often. Especially with the way people like to drive their cars around here, it turns my stomach everytime I'm on those roads.
