    Default Backroads Century 2019

    Hello friends,

    I have never done the Backroads Century before and am considering it for this year (Sunday, September 22). I have heard good things about it.

    I'm wondering if anyone else is thinking about it or has already signed up who may want to coordinate the fun.

    Backroads is a nice ride. Iíve done it three times. Lots of nice rural riding. They also do a ride on Saturday with a 16ish and a 30ish mile route both of which go through Antietam and have a stop at an ice cream shop.

    Iím not planning on it this year but I hope someone has pity on you and offers a ride.

    I've done it several times but not since it moved to Shepherdstown. It's fun and challenging. I'm still undecided for this year.

    I like the Sheperdstown route better than the old Berryville one. SteveO, rumor has it there may be a car available without driver.

    Steve,
    I have yet to do Backroads Century, and I've been thinking about it for this year, Even more so if there is a possibility to muster a number of us for carpooling and to share lodging the night before (any still available?). If so, Karen B. is likely to need the car, so I'll be looking for a ride. Thanks for your initiative to get this started.

    Dave

    I regret that I wonít be in town for PPBRC2019; the Shepherdstown WVA route (and preliminaries ) is a GREAT ride. I had the privilege to lead the marshal crew on the 2015 inaugural ride of the (then) new route, after which we posed for this victory photo:-)

    I signed up.
    I'd be happy to ride with others, coordinate travel, etc.
