Scorched Earth Scurry...

Putting on a little SSOFTeam ride this Saturday. It’s a double-loop, fat-tire, fixed-gear ride over the rollickin’, rollin’, asphalt-smooth dirt trails at Rosaryville in Uppah Marrahburrah, Merylin. All are welcome. Here’s the official four-one-one:

Scorched Earth Scurry
Sponsored by The Bicycle Escape and Single Speed Outlaw Factory Team
Location: Rosaryville State Park, Upper Marlboro, MD. First parking lot on the right after the gate.
Date: Saturday, December 4. Meet at 9 am, wheels down and rolling at 9:15 am
Terrain: Mild. The loop is hardpack singletrack with plenty of whoop-de-doos. Short up- and downhills. Fixed gear and singlespeed friendly.
Ride level: Moderate to advanced, depending on the players.
Description: A 20-mile fixed-gear dirt ride. Fixed gear recommended, but all mountain/cross bikes are welcome. What better way to warm up the winter engine and prepare for the onslaught of cooler weather than going coast-less in the woods of (moderately) wild, (moderately) wonderful Upper Marlboro, MD? Come on out and pedal every inch of the 10-mile dirt loop in one direction, then hit it again going the other way to double your pedaling pleasure. This route is pure bliss, a veritable roller-coaster ride guaranteed to have you grinning from ear to ear without feeling like you had to suffer for it!
