For the second year, the Back Roads Century Weekend started off with a Saturday ride to and through Antietam National Park. Because last year’s Antietam ride was so well attended we knew to expect an even larger crowd this year and planned a start location to accommodate this popular warm-up ride. The routes of 19 and 35 miles, travelled to Antietam Park which was celebrating the 154th anniversary of the Battle of Antietam. Back Roads Century attendees all received free entry to the Park because the Club covered all fees. After touring the grounds, cyclists continued their journeys which, long or short, inevitably brought them to Nutter’s Ice Cream in Sharpsburg! This popular Saturday option is here to stay as the Back Roads Century evolves into a weekend to plan for!
