    South Mountain Redux Revisited is revised, rejuvenated, reimagined, and of course redundant of a classic DCRand 600k, the Pigeon Hills.  In 2018 this was reworked to be the South Mountain Redux, which avoided the Pigeon Hills and their ugly aftermath.  Still, the ride proved quite challenging, so this renewal does more significant surgery, and lengthens the first day to about 400k, and accordingly reduces the second day by about 40k.  How does that work?

    SMRR entirely skirts Big Flat, including the false summit, with a bigger indulgence in the majestic Michaux State Forest.  A new control in Mt. Holly Springs improves the supply chain in the first leg of the route, which also ducks down to Shippensburg to eliminate the overlong stretch of unserviced road into Mercersburg.  From there things are unchanged until you cross back over the Potomac, where a few more miles of modest terrain are added before overnighting where you started, the Hampton Inn on Oppossumtown Pike in Frederick. 

    After that respite, Day 2 has the advantage of being 25 miles shorter than before.  It now heads to Union Bridge, where the chance for more frequent re-supply begins.  Up at its northern end this day hits its high point, with about 50 miles to go and a fairly mellow pass through the battlefield in Gettysburg, then Emmitsburg, and Thurmont on the way back to Frederick.

    Iron Brigade is a new 200k by Bill Beck, from the DCRand traditional December Woodbine, MD start/finish.  The route heads first to historic Ellicott City, but not so far that flooding is a risk!  Then we head across lovely western Howard County and up to Emittsburg.  Then we'll go down to Thurmont, and back to Woodbine on a unique path that skips the Waterville climbs.

    Social Gathering Before/After



    The Mason Dixon 1200k travels country roads through places where US Civil War factories hummed, crops grew, slaves reached freedom, and critical battles raged.  The route includes the Blue Ridge and South mountains, Shenandoah Valley, the iconic Antietam and Gettysburg battlefields, and Pennsylvania Dutch Country, all in the Mason Dixon region that functionally separated Union and Confederate territories.  Our website is full of information about the Civil War history of this land, prominently including social history like the Underground Railroad.
