Ruxton (16.1 Mi)

View Larger Map

This is a decent ride, about an hour in length. We generally use it for recovery rides or pre race rides just to open the legs up. Some slight climbing on Falls Rd and Boyce Ave, but overall pretty flat. You can make it even shorter by heading straight back on Charles St. and avoiding the loop on Bellona through Loyola.

Park Heights (22.6 Mi)

View Larger Map

This ride is generally about an hour an a half, maybe a tad shorter, depending on lights. A good option if you’re crunched on time and need to get a decent tempo ride in. Some good climbing on Falls Rd, Park Heights Blvd, and Bellemore Rd on the way back. Cross Country Road is very fast and very fun. You can also take Greenspring Ave on the way back for some more climbing and come back through Druid Hill Park.

 Caves (28.3 Mi)

View Larger Map

The “iconic” Hopkins Cycling ride and the one that most of our longer rides are based off of. Generally takes about 1:45. Good climbs on Falls Rd, Caves Rd, and Bellemore on the way back. Please be careful on Greenspring Ave. It can be busy and there isn’t much of a shoulder.

Wednesday Night Ride (33.3 Mi)

The loop of the Wednesday night Twenty20 Ride. Generally takes about 2 hours or so. Climbs on Falls Rd, Thornton Rd, Knox Rd, and Lake Rd on the way back. A fun loop.

Jerome Jay and Bellona (37.5 Mi)
View Larger Map

A tough training ride and one of our favorites! Features climbing on Falls Rd, Park Heights Blvd, Jerome Jay, and Bellona on the way back. A good, solid training ride of 2+ hours, depending on your fitness. Please be careful on Tufton Ave, there isn’t much of a shoulder.

Euro Road (47.8 Mi)

An extension of the above which adds climbing on Butler Rd, Duncan Hill Rd (so called “euro road”), and Cuba Road. An awesome ride and one of our favorites. Will likely be the route of many Sunday rides this winter.
