    The Civil War Tour is a classic DCRand brevet, taking in four battlefields.  The ride starts in Urbana, MD and soon enters the Monocacy Battlefield, on the way to the first climb of day, Catoctin Mountain at MarLu Ridge.  The route goes through Jefferson and Burkittsville in the Middletown Valley before climbing South Mountain to the battlefield at Crompton's Gap, which features Gathland State Park, a crossing of the Appalachian Trail, and Correspondents Arch.  From there the route approaches the first large battle, Antietam, in Sharpsburg, where you can refuel at the Battleview Market.  Then you're on to Boonsboro and beyond that the longest climb of the days, over South Mountain on Ravens Rock Road.  After Sabillasville you enter Pennsylvania and climb little Jack's Mountain before the lunch opportunity of Fairfield.  In 72 miles you've climbed 5,000 RWGPS feet, and the remaining 58 miles give you about 2,800' more climbing.  In Gettysburgh you might also grab lunch, after a large loop of the battlefield.  It's 46 miles to the end with there, with a potential to resupply at the Woodsboro High's at mile 111.

    Double Ox Audax is designed for moderate climbing and audax riding in the heart of DCRand territory.  Starting outside Frederick, MD it passes through New Oxford, PA on the way to a natural lunch stop in East Berlin, PA.  The route then returns to New Oxford en route to Gettysburg Battlefield and a final stop in Thurmont.

    This event is a UAF Audax brevet, subject to some unique rules.  The critical rules are a common riding pace of 22.5 kph (14mph), scheduled controls of set duration, and sit-down meals.  Riding willfully outside the peloton is forbidden, the peloton is led by route captains, and the outside time is 14h for 200K.  The finish time for this event, however, is about 11 hours.

    The Mountain Church 200, first ridden by DC Randonneurs in 2017, is Roger Hillas's reworking of Lynn Kristianson's Coffee Quest permanent. It starts from the Starbucks at 5185 MacArthur Boulevard in the Palisades neighborhood of DC. Plenty of street parking is available nearby, especially between MacArthur and the Potomac River, but check the signage for restrictions (you cannot park on the block directly in front of Starbucks on Saturdays).

    The ride begins gently, but the rollers grow quickly after Potomac, Maryland. Back roads take us around Poolesville to Maryland 28 near Dickerson, then on to the control at Stups Market in Adamstown. Instead of continuing west across Marlu Ridge, the route heads south and crosses the Potomac River at Point of Rocks. A gradual climbs takes us to the second control in Lovettsville, Virginia (to the new 7-Eleven), and an equally gradual descent leads to Brunswick, where we cross the Potomac back into Maryland. After climbing out of the Potomac basin, the route wanders through farmland and far suburbs to Burkettsville. This time, instead of making the familiar climb up to Gapland, it skirts the base of South Mountain north to the informational control that gives the ride its name.

    From there, moderate rollers take us to the open control in Middletown. The Main Cup will be a great place to stop for a sit-down lunch with your fellow riders, or the Subway nearby for something a bit quicker. Then come the formidable rollers between Middletown and Jefferson. We climb Marlu Ridge the easy way, with its spectacular view west towards Harper’s Ferry and south into Virginia as far as Old Rag, if the day is clear enough. If a tailwind is blowing, we’ll speed home on a route that is more exposed and somewhat hillier than the outbound route. After Potomac, the road levels out, with only the descent back down to the Potomac basin and a flat ride along MacArthur between us and the finish at Del Popolo SPK Pizza at 4885 MacArthur Boulevard.
