Let this serve as a sample of what we are looking for in Turn-By-Turn submissions for My Favorite Ride.
Some people are just better talkers than they are writers. It is certainly easier to communicate face to face. However in order to reach a larger audience we are going to have to ask you submit your entries in the following format. You don’t have to include descriptive text with every turn, but pointing out major landmarks or points of interest is strongly requested.
Turn by turn directions are required.
Also required are warnings for road conditions like potholes from construction, wet surface from waterfall, or gravel from falling rock.
I would suggest programming in the route on Google Maps and copying the directions from there like I have.
We are working on a way to let you build your maps through our site and store them for others to pull up on Google Maps.
We would love to have pictures included. You and your bike, pictures from along the ride, snaps from roadside attractions / eateries, or pictures from rest stop / scenic overlooks are all suggested and welcomed.
Here is what we would be looking for:
Baltimore, MD To Annapolis, MD
This is an alternate route that keeps you off the highway. It takes a little longer to get there but I promise the ride is a lot more fun.
You will have to get onto Rt 2 for a small portion once or twice but it is the best I could come up with.
The 8×10 10 East Cross Street, Baltimore, MD 21230
Head west on E Cross St toward S Charles St
58 s (482 ft)
Continue on S Hanover St. Take Pennington Ave, MD-173 S/Fort Smallwood Rd, Solley Rd, Baltimore Annapolis Blvd, … and MD-450 W to Market Space in Annapolis
