Looking for a new century....
Category: Social

My standard late August favorite the Bay Country Century was cancelled recently,
so I'm looking for 100 miles I've never ridden before.  I came across this website
'Ohbike.org/events' (thanks, Mtube!) and found the 'Tour De Frederick' on the 13th.  Anyone done it before?  I'm assuming great scenery and low traffic roads,
but anyone have any other experiences?

thanks,

Bill Gary

Please let the rest of us know if you're alright!!!

Ride cautions...
Category: Social

This is a challenging ride in Howard and Montgomery counties, made more so by forcasted high winds on Sunday.
There are shortcuts we can take before lunch (left at Old Frederick at mile 26.9) or after lunch (straight at Florence at mile 49.3 up to Old Frederick)
if the wind becomes a problem.

Also...we'll be crossing or turning at several high trafficed intersections, including Rt 97, Rt 108,Rt 27 and Folly Quarter road. Managing these situations successfully requires a mix of judgement, experience and a rear view mirror.  Hopefully, you'll be bringing all 3 to the ride.

Please contact me at billc_gary@prodigy.net if you have any questions about the ride.

Well, hey Rando Bob!!  We'd be honored to have you with us whenever we
do the Rando Bob Chesapeake Beach century within the next few weeks.

How have you been??  And thanks for the updated RB CBC cue sheet!

Bill

Hey Carl...funny you should mention the CB century..I've been thinking about posting it if we ever get a non-rainy weekend.  It's in the Cue library under
AA county over 50 miles, listed as 'Rando Bob's BWI to Chesapeake Beach Ramble.
MAYBE we can do it the weekend of the 28th/29th??

Due to a work-related conflict, the 62 mile 'Mildly Mountainous Metric...' that was scheduled for Saturday April 9th has been rescheduled to Saturday April 16th.
Fear not...all those hills will still be there on the 16th!!

I have a 2 or 3 year old pair of black Sidi cycling shoes...3 binding straps, size 47 with SpeedPlay Zero cleats attached.   Anyone want them before I Velocipede them??

LMK,

Anyone want a copy?

The recent worlds road and time trial races in Richmond CA were spectacular to watch live (yes, I was there!). I don't know if anyone is interested, but I recorded the coverage from the soon-to-be-gone Universal Sports Network and I thought that the BBC family might be interested in sharing a disk of the races.
As I've done in the past, it's first responding first viewing. Each person borrowing the disk is responsible for passing it on to whomever is next..we'll keep track of viewing order by the order  of responses to this posting.  I already have a disk for myself, so I don't need it returned when everyone has seen it.   Whatdayasay, sibs.....anyone interested?

get em early...

I know it's too early to be thinking about Bike Virginia 2016, but anything that distracts us from the coming cold temps and lack of daylight is good.  Early registration for BV is coming up, so I did my own search for hotels near each of the TC's. I found them myself, and they were FAR CHEAPER than they will be when the 'hotel scheduling' service for BV takes control.  If you're a BV hotel person, check the dates and location of the TC's and book your hotel NOW.
