I live in Baltimore City and my parents live in Brunswick (SW suburb of Frederick) and I wanted to do a ride out there to see them (about 65 miles or so) and then ride back the next day sometimes in april/may.
I wanted to know if anyone had done it and if so what is the best route to atleast get into frederick (which is a great bike city i hear).
I'm looking for roads with shoulders (obviously) and if not that, then the least traveled roads. Prolly going to do it on a saturday and then come back sunday (least amount of cars).
I know MD-26 is decent (how decent i DO NOT KNOW), but it will take me 10 miles north out of the way. but I was thinking of taking 40 until it runs parallel with 70 and then just taking those roads that go south of 70 into brunswick.
Anyone done this? let me know as i'm going to drive it tomm. and I don't really want to waste my time with a crappy route. THX in advance!
