Yesterday’s 38-mile loop through Montgomery and Howard counties started out at the Laytonsville Shopping Center. Just Riding a Bike , an area bike store, is located right next door.
It developed into a hot and humid day. The route was beautiful (not counting the first mile on Route 108 – traffic-y and not much shoulder). Pretty much the entire route is hills and by the second half I for one was feeling it. We were not surprised that John’s Garmin recorded 2000′ of elevation.
Along the way
Burial Ground – Ancestors of Original African American Community of Howard Chapel
Some of the gravestones were very simple rectangular pillars with just an initial engraved.
Soma – taking a break
On the way home we made an unplanned stop at the famous Olney Ale House. Perfect finish to a good workout!
Enjoying the deck at Olney Ale House. (One of the beers was mine!).
