Thanks Phil Manger for a great event in Franklin County, PA; -Greencastle Great Escape
Category: Social
Forum: Ride Reports

Mike and I just returned from a wonderful weekend event--the Greencastle Great Escape--and a "great escape" it was!  The cycling was extraordinary--through beautiful valleys that boasted sweeping vistas and mountain views off in the distance.  Group dinners at Brothers Pizza and the John Allison Public House, happy hour in our room, and plenty of ice cream at Mikie's, Trickling Springs, and Windy Knoll Market & Creamery made for a food feast for hungry cyclists.  Of course, all the camaraderie and socializing was icing on the cake!  Our heartfelt thanks goes to Phil Manger for coordinating this the 4th annual....Despite the at times ominous forecast--Phil saw to it that we got all the rides in!!  Evie Reinsel

A Big Success and Thank You!
Category: Social

We extend a super big thank you to Mary Ellen McLewee for spearheading a wonderful 50th anniversary celebration--with great rides and a terrific party. Her effort and commitment are greatly appreciated. Thanks to Pat Lapensee for his support and his culinary skills--with the delicious smoked salmon and meats.  It was a true feast for hungry cyclists.  The atmosphere--on the road and off--was charged with an excitement and energy that was befitting for this milestone year!  Thanks to all the other volunteers who helped make this event so memorable. Happy Anniversary BBC! Evie/Mike

Thanks Mary.  Kent County Spring Fling rides are for registered participants only.  KCSF registration ended on May 14.

The loss of a dear friend--a guy who loved to ride his bike
Category: Social

We are so saddened by the loss of our dear friend, Al Barrett, who passed away on Tuesday, March 27, at Johns Hopkins Hospital, from complications following surgery.  He was 74 years old. Al was a cyclist to his core and was a club member for over 35 years--participating in rides, events, weekend trips, and club socials. He was the Kent County Spring Fling's biggest fan, attending every event but one--34 of 35--over the decades, even the first one held at Great Oaks Landing. Al just loved being active and also enjoyed hiking and skiing. He was a nice guy with a big, warm smile and a great sense of humor. Al was a wonderful storyteller and historian--who loved reminiscing about the club's "glory days." He was liked by everyone who knew him. Al will be greatly missed.
The viewing (9-11am) and funeral (11am) will be on Monday, April 2, at the Harry Witzke Family Funeral Home on 4112 Old Columbia Pike in Ellicott City, Maryland.

Thanks, David, for letting us know about Al Barrett.  Both my husband, Mike, and I have know Al since the 1980s.  We have been friends over the decades and especially look forward to being with Al at the Spring Fling as well as other club events throughout the year.  We will get in touch with him.  Thanks again.  Evie & Mike Reinsel

We are cancelling the 10/29 Tandem ride from Runnymeade ES because of the wet forecast.  Hope to reschedule this ride.

Outstanding BBC volunteer/Spring Fling coordinator/
Category: Social

We are so saddened to hear of the passing of Al Schaffer, a warm and generous man who made a huge contribution to cycling and to the BBC.  Al, a local dentist, was one of the early bike commuters in Baltimore--cycling to work in the early 1970s.  He and his wife, Ruth, took over coordination of the Spring Fling early on and turned it the bike club's premier event for decades.  They also coordinated numerous club picnics and always had great ideas for menus, etc.  Al (and Ruth) were huge workers in the tandem community as well.  He will be greatly missed. Al was 84 years old.

Forum: Ride Reports

A big thanks to Bill Blankenship for a great BBC Picnic at Taneytown Memorial Park on Sunday, July 9!  There was a BIG turnout, on a beautiful summer day, for the wonderful rides and free picnic lunch. It was a great opportunity to socialize with fellow members, ride through gently rolling countryside with few cars, and enjoy the delicious food. Thanks also to the ride leaders, officers, and anyone else who had a hand in making for a very fun event!

35th annual KCSF was a big success!
Category: Social
Forum: Ride Reports

A big THANKS to Bob Carson and his committee for another very successful Kent County Spring Fling!  The milestone 35th version of this classic weekend was great fun, as always!  We met riders from Missouri, Connecticut, New Hampshire and Georgia--plus lots from the Mid-Atlantic region.  Four days of great riding and the vast majority of people never got wet:) The riders, food, quiet roads, cool weather, music/dancing, energy, ambiance, and charm of Chestertown and Washington College made for a wonderful Memorial Weekend!
