SSS Ski Club Events 2023
October12 - 10:30AM Paint Branch Trail Bike Ride
This ride is 13-15 miles long over a paved bike path with plenty of shade and few road crossings. It starts in north College Park, just inside the Beltway. We follow the Paint Branch south, passing by Paint Branch Golf Course, the University of Maryland campus. and College Park Airport on our way to our turnaround point at Riverdale Community Park. On our way back, we’ll detour to ride around Artemesia Lake. After the ride we’ll have lunch at Mamma Lucia’s in the nearby College Park Marketplace shopping center. There are no toilets at the trail head, but there are some at Riverdale Community Park.
Your trip leader is Bob S. If there is a greater than 30% chance of rain the day before the ride, it will be postponed. Bob will inform anyone planning to attend. The rain date is Tuesday Oct. 17.
Directions: From the intersection of the Beltway and Rte. 1, go south on Rte 1. (If you’re coming south down I-95, getting to the intersection is a little tricky. As you approach the Beltway, take the right fork marked "I-495 West Silver Spring”. After the fork, take a left exit marked “Rte 1”. This will put you on the inner loop of the Beltway leading to the Rte. 1 exit on the right) On Rte. 1, after a short block take the first right onto Cherry Hill Rd. Look for the sign on the right. On Cherry Hill Road pass two traffic lights leading into College Park Market Place shopping center on your right. The trail head is on the right approx. 100 yards after the second light. The sign says “Cherry Hill Road Community Park.”
Directions to Mamma Lucia’s:Go back the way you came on Cherry Hill Rd. College Park Market Place shopping center will now be on your left. Go left at the second light into the shopping center.
