Had a good time on the ride. Made my metric.
Quick ride report.
Arrived at the Inner Harbor by 6:30 and parked behind Federal Hill, several miles from the start but close to AVAM where I wanted to go afterward.
Got in a few miles riding, including Fells Point, on my way to the start.
The Mayor of Baltimore joined us for the longer ride, which would explain why the route was so free of debris and glass, not to mention the police presence at some intersections.
At North Point another BF member saw the stickers on my helmet and introduced himself (roadie07 I think it was)
Foggy and overcast until I got to German Hill, about 10:00. Sunny after that.
Ride was routed around Fells Point this year to avoid the Festival.
Finished about 11:30. Pizza and salad for lunch. Back on the road by 12:00.
Went thru the Fells Point Festival, mostly walking my bike down Thames Street. Remembered to take my cyclocomputer off first so I wouldn't mess up my average.
Continued my ride around the Inner Harbor, Federal Hill, Raven's Stadium, Riverside, back out to the Fort. Did a lot of wandering to round up my mileage to 63.
Stopped at AVAM for a couple of hours. Went thru the new show, and picked up christmas presents from the gift shop.
Left the museum at the same time the Raven's game had just ended. Took a long while to get out of town.
