IF THIS KIND of thing keeps up, the folks who run the annual Cycle Across Maryland may have to add a subtitle: . . . and Find Love and Romance.That's what happened, at least, to Susie Haigh and Dave Jones on last summer's second annual CAM tour. The two Cockeysville cyclists met while pedaling a scenic country road in Frederick County last August. Tomorrow they will wed in an evening ceremony at the Wicomico Shores Golf Course on the Eastern Shore.The wedding cake ornament will be a tiny bicycle built for two, and their gifts to each other are new bike saddles.
