MORE’s Summer Festival at Rosaryville State Park in Upper Marlboro, MD was a spectacular, active family outing for mountain bike riders of all skill levels. My fellow Fit Father Shawn Ciers and I participated specifically in the Poker Ride, an 11-mile route through the park’s perimeter and interior trails. At each of the 5-way stations, riders drew a card from the deck as part of the competition. Riders with the top 5 poker hands won prizes.
The state park was certainly worth an experience with fast and challenging, steep trails. After unloading the Kia Sorento our Trek MTBs were up for the winding twists and stimulating turns, while fun, up-hill points along the route provided a great endurance test for these Fit Fathers. MORE also hosted a youth ride and a skills competition for advanced riders.
It was an energizing and vibrant Sunday morning workout to kick off our days. We definitely found a new home for future riding.
