BBC Booth at Towsontown Spring Festival

 

Many thanks to our team of BBC members who volunteered to spend part of their weekend at the BBC booth at the Towsontown Spring Festival on May 5 and 6.  Their objective was to publicize our club's  activities to the 200,000 visitors at this annual event.  We hope to have new members who will join our club as a result of the efforts of: Jayme Abrams, Nikki Austin, Bob Carson, John Eckard, Marge Ewertz, Steve Feldman, Gary Flax, Esther Frey, Eric Frey, Jeff Huesman, Amy Hurtoom, Howie Kline, Kim Kodenski, Jim Mayhew, Mary Ellen Mclewee, Rick Todd, Bill Wiesand, and Gene Young.   

BBC Small Grants Program will begin accepting applications beginning Jan. 1, 2018. 

Effective April 24, 2018, there is a new ‘Port-o-Pot’ taking up residence at the Western Run Park-and-Ride on Shawan Rd. courtesy of the BBC and two gracious gentlemen at the MD State Highway Department who kindly striped an area for its own dedicated parking spot. 

This new development will be a comfort to local cyclists and will no doubt provide much needed ‘relief’, both to the pine grove across the street and to the puzzled stare of the golfers on the on the Par 4 15th fairway.

Maryland Interscholastic Cycling League

Maryland Interscholastic Cycling

There is a revolution going on right now in youth cycling. In 19 states, there are state-wide middle and high school bike racing leagues up and running. More than 15,000 kids ride or race in NICA (National Interscholastic Cycling Association) leagues. Some individual schools have over 120 kids on the bike team! Other amazing statistics include: 80% of participants have no prior cycling experience, 80% also report that a parent or sibling picked up riding as a result of their participation, and 99% say they will be cyclists for the rest of their lives.

This past October, Maryland Interscholastic Cycling League (MDMTB) launched as a new league within NICA committed to bringing experiential learning and character development programs to Maryland that use mountain bikes as a primary tool.

MDMTB works within the boundaries of NICA to produce safe, quality mountain bike events that focus on equality and inclusivity and further the goal of developing strong body, strong mind, and strong character for our participating student-athletes.
