Middletown MD's Grand Fondue: Lots o' gravel, wine, melted cheese.. 35 or 99.9 mile
Join a bunch of like minded folks who ride road bikes on roads they shouldn't. Big miles, hard climbs, beautiful Frederick country and mountains. Dirt roads. Wine and Communal fondue and a good band afterwards, all at a local winery.
Two Rides: 99.9 miles (with a bail out at 65 if needed) and a 35 mile ride.
Pace: Super casual and or semi fast, depending on which breakaway group you are in.
Difficulty: Not for everyone. Experienced bike handlers.... gravel roads...
Contact: James or Dan
Location: Ride starts at Orchid Cellar winery in Middletown MD
When: 99.9 miler starts, wheels down, at 7am. The 35er starts at 12.
Cost: $15 plus bring a brick of cheese for the fondue (see website for details)
There will be minimal sag support, but if you come into hard times, we'll get you out pretty fast.
