A rigorous analysis of the projected temperature rise indicates that it should be just above my personal 'wuss factor' of 40 degress by 9:30 am. Hoping to see a good turnout for what should be some great fall weather!

Michael,

Consider joining a ride posted at the 10-12 level watching for notes about the terrain. We have been known to give you all the free advice you can stand and we usually sweep rides at that level. If you are not confident about finishing our usual length  ride of 30 miles or so, keep an eye out for the casual rides which get posted occasionally. Our 30 mile 10-12 level rides usually feature a refreshment stop at the mid-point peppered with social banter. Looking forward to seeing you on the road!

current/wink Hmmm.... rain drops on my windshield at ride start time and no riders. Looks like other folks had the good sense to think about indoor options today. You may find me Spinning in the gym this afternoon. Hoping to do this ride another day!

Forecast is for light rain starting between 1 and 2 pm - let's get this ride in!

On today's Union Bridge Pancake Ride, we found Woodvile Road impassable around mile 23 on the 36 mile cue sheet. There are detour sign posted for traffic, but us cyclists can sometimes go where cars can't. The closure is noted on http://www.frederickcountymd.gov/docume … 559599.pdf where it is noted that the road was closed on August 27th at the intersection of Emerson Burrier Rd. Completion is expected in Spring 2013. Some of us just returned to the start via Liberty Rd. Others tried a diversion vis Unionville and Black Ankle to Buffalo, which seemed satisfactory.

Thanks to Phil Manger arranging the perfect ride on perfect weather day yesterday! A small group of us 10-12 riders hung together and enjoyed the bucolic countryside, occasionally catching a whiff of the authentic working farm aromas...

Problem on New Freedom OHD II cue sheet
Forum: Road Problems

The bridge on Fissels Church Road at mile 15.9 on the New Freedom OHD II cue sheet is out. There is no way to cross the creek - there is a sveral mile detour to get back on the cue sheet. Also, on the same cue sheet, there is bridge construction at mile 25.7 at the turn from windy Hill Rd to Deer Creek Rd - you don't need to cross the creek, but the construction has eliminated any street signs that might have been there to navigate the right turn.

A perfect weather day for the Flatlands Tour. Thanks to Ken Philhower for helping to keep this BBC tradition going stong. I did the metric century at 14.4 mph - a satisfying result for this 10-12 rider.

http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=4222889780349&set=o.2224775619&type=1&ref=nfOn my first ride lead, 16 riders signed in and most of them stayed with me on a pleasant ride to Galesville today. We didn't feel the heat or the winds until the ride was almost over. The route has a lot of road-side trees for shade and wind breaks. I was impressed that the ride attracted riders from diverse locations, a few from as far as Arlington, Virginia. Folks mugged up for a pic at the waterside break at Galesville.

Looking for advice on trailer hitch and bike rack for new Prius
Category: Social

I am planning to take delivery of a new Toyota Prius shortly and am looking for advice about transporting my bike. I have convinced myself that I would like to bolt a trailer hitch on the car and use a hitch mounted bike carrier. I have seen a number of web sites advertising relatively inexpensive kits that are tailored for each car model. Does anybody have experience about trailer hitch mounting to share? Also any advice about hitch mounted bike racks would be welcome.
