There are lots of good road routes north of town. Great riding with varied topography.
Yes - I'd center my start areas around Veloccino (Butler Rd @ Falls Rd), Meadowood Park (Falls Rd @ Greenspring), or Oregon Ridge State Park. Joe's Bike Shop is a good reference, but you'll have to navigate north through some congestion to get out to the good riding. A lot of folks also drive out a little further west to Westminster or Taneytown to ride up around Gettysburg, and south toward Thurmont, or up into the Catoctins. Plenty of nice options....

Edit:
The NCR trail actually runs all the way to York, PA, FWIW. Pick it up on Ashland/Paper Mill Rd, ~1.5 mi E of York Rd.
