Are their bikely maps for all of the rides?

I am doing the 45 miler but someone else that I know is trying to decide between the 15 mile or the 36 mile route. (They will do the 36 mile route as long as there are not too many hills!). I am guessing there are not a lot of monster hills in CC.

Out fishing with Annie on his lap, a cigar in one hand and a ginger ale in the other, watching the sunset.

I got this in email, re your question here, apparently. Glad to repost them, though.

Hi Tom,
Here are links for the routes you asked for- We had to make a few
adjustments to accommodate a bridge closure. We have hills in Calvert, but I
wouldn't call them monster hills If your friend rides regularly they
should be able to do the 36.
Hope this helps,

Helping the wife recover from spine surgery. Otherwise I'd probably do it this year. I'm right off Rte 2 in Owings.

Maybe next year...
