Rocket launch travel alert

Excerpt from baybridge.com:
Due to the Anne Arundel County Burn Foundation's Benefit Motorcycle Ride, motorists should expect high traffic volumes on Saturday, June 18, at approximately 10 a.m. when the group is expected to reach the bridge.  The MDTA will direct the group to the far-right side of the toll plaza.  Approximately 1,200 - 1,500 motorcyclists are participating in the benefit event.
So, I could leave at 8:45 and beat the biker crowd but then have to figure out how to kill a couple of hours before the sod farm opens at noon.  Or, I can leave at 10:00 and just sweat out the traffic.
