possible route change to the final 30 mile loop of the GRR century
Category: Social

Thanks for the input Ed..
How about if we took Sand Hill south to 144, then EAST on 144 to Tridelphia,
lEFT (south) on Tridelphia to Sharp/Shady Lane/Hobbs??  Is Tridelphia rideable
down there?? OR..Tridelphia to Rosemary Lane RIGHT to 32 then LEFT to Burnt Woods??

Whatdoyathink??

Thanks again,

Bill

possible route change to the final 30 mile loop of the GRR century
Category: Social

Howard County folks..
I'm tying to update the final 30 mile loop of the 'Gary, Rick and Ron' century
route. Currently, we go west on 99 from Alpha Ridge Park, left (south) on 32 and
then west on 144 for 2.5 miles till we go left on McKendree.  I'm not crazy about
those 2 miles on 144 (traffic, narrow or non-existent shoulder) OR having to turn
left across 144 on McKendree.
Any routing ideas?? I'd like to keep the route south of 144 and moving east so that
our final rest stop is at Woodbine and Old Frederick...and, of course, it has to
end up being close to 30 miles!
I'm not planning on leading the GRR century till May or June, so we have lots of
time...let me know if you have any ideas.

thanks,

Bill Gary

Prelim planning for a Tucson cycling trip!
Category: Social

Hey, BBC'ers, BBC racers and anybody else....

Can it be time already to consider some early season
2012 miles in a warm, (hopefully) dry environment????

I'm thinking about the first or second week in March
for our semi-annual bike outing to Tucson AZ....
I started this annual trek to the sunshine several years
ago when I tagged along with the BBC racing folks, who
used to do this as their early season training camp. As
I've said here many times......it's great training AND
a great way to eliminate a week of winter from your life.

Southwest now flies direct from BWI to Tucson (fares are pretty
low right now) and the La Quita Hotel at the airport has rooms
available...but of course, there are many reasonably priced
hotels in the area.

Here's a link to SOME of the routes in the area..I think I've
done most of them!

Anybody interested??

If you've wanted to try CF, here's your chance!
Category: Technical

I'm selling my classic Calfee Luna frame...it's a 58 cm (C to T)
carbon fiber road frame made with Craig Calfee's own carbon tubes
and gusseted lugs (you know, those wing looking things that make a
Calfee frame so distinctive looking).

The TT is 57 cm C to C, chainstays are 41.5 cm, wheelbase is 99.4 cm,
head tube angle is 74 degrees, seat tube angle is 73 degrees.
I'm including a Reynolds carbon fiber fork, headset, carbon seat post
and front derailleur clamp. It's been VERY WELL taken cared for...it
was my baby bike, so it has never seen rough graveled roads, and, in
its' lifetime, it has probably seen rain twice (maybe 3 times).

Please contact me here (on list) or off-list at wgary@jhmi.edu for more
information or to arrange a place to meet (I live in Baltimore).

Please..help me find a good and deserving home for my Calfee baby!!


$300.00 OBO

Diff between the Diamante and Rubino
Category: Technical

I've got the Vittoria Diamante Pro's on 2 sets of wheels and I love them.
However..they ARE race tires and therefore they're supple, soft and thin
under the tread.  The Rubino's are a little more robust, but I'm curious
how much heavier/'leaden' they might feel.  Comments, anyone??

Is the Wed Oregon Ridge route OK?
Forum: Road Problems

..was thinking of doing an OR spin tomorrow afternoon (Cuba, Miller, Falls,
Stringtown, Yeoho, Benson Mill, Cedar Grove, Corbet, Carroll, Sparks, Belfast, etc.)
Does anyone know of any problems with any of these roads?

How about Shepherd up to Troyer, then Troyer right to Monkton?

thanks,

Bill

Hey Mary & barry...weather permitting, I'll be at the CWC volunteer ride
on SUnday.    Bill Gary
