Patuxent North

 

This Skinny Tire Friendly™ route meanders out to the northernmost segment of the excellent Patuxent River Park system. It features some solid hills, good vistas, and lots of farmland.

There’s an option on the cue sheet to save 10 miles and about 900 ft of climbing.

Also Waredaca Brewing Company at mile 41. Great place to stop if they’re open for a pint at a picnic table. It does get quite busy. Brookeville Beer farm, a little further down the road, serves pizza and seems less prone to lines out the door, but does not feature the same level of scenery.

 

Important Reminder

Metro does not allow bikes during rush hour on weekdays. If you are planning to catch the train home after a non-weekend day of riding, make sure you do so before 4pm or after 7pm. I made this mistake. I wouldn't recommend it.
