    Rides in and around Frederick MD

    I will be visiting family in Frederick late March for a week and would like some info on some decent riding spots. I was thinking of bringing the road bike to log some early season miles (I'm from Canada and don't get out on the road much before April) but I can bring the MTB if its a better choice.

    Thanks in advance.

    There is wonderful riding to be discovered in and around Frederick. Below, is a link to the roads the Gran Fondo Maryland covers: https://www.granfondonationalseries....maryland-maps/

    On the longer rides, there are few stores, so plan accordingly. The climbs are challenging.

    Enjoy,

    Check out Frederick peddlers on Facebook or Potomac peddlers. Wheelbase in downtown has group rides Sunday mornings. I did the long route of the grand fondo last year and it is challenging. All American bikes in Damascus has shop rides on Saturdays. There are a few places to rent a bike if you want. Lots of great cycling to be had. There is a fairly flat route that hits a few covered bridges if that appeals to you.

    Drew123, I left a PM about meeting up for riding while you're in MD.
