Westminster Gran Fondo in October looks interesting.  Is this new?

Garrett County Gran Fondo looks challenging.  I have registered for this one.

Hi Michael & Dan,

The mag trainer and seat bags are in Catonsville.  Please contact me so you can pick these items up.

Thanks!

Seagull on a fixie can be fun.  I ride a Masi fixie on the eastern shore a lot with 43 * 14 gearing (80+/- inches).  There generally isn't much of a need for derailleurs over there unless it is really windy or if you want to keep up with a fast tandem or an even faster washing machine.  I would be interested in one of those multispeed fixie hubs.  Thus far have not seen any need for the freewheel, but it is there as a bailout.

I will bring these back from DE next time we are down -- probably two weeks.  Will e-mail when I have them.

I will need to bring the trainer to Catonsville from Delaware.  Expect to be in DE in two weeks.  I will advise when it is here in Catonsville.

In Rehoboth Beach, about 12 inches of snow by my guess.  Rode 2.5 hours Sunday morning before the snow.  Will be inside all day today except when shoveling.

Another fun winter begins ...

MT,

Thanks for the forecast!

Hope you are right on the 80% prediction ...

Rode Hamburg, Middle Point & Coxey Brown today.  Low 30's & a fairly strong north(?) wind.  Nearly run over by a fuel delivery truck while descending the unpaved Rum Springs.  Was afraid to challenge Harp Hill with the wind.

Cheers!

Jim

If the BBC was a for profit company I could understand the reason to protect the cue sheets as assets of the club by limiting public access.  However, the cue sheets for the BBC have been created by individuals who contributed them freely to the club.  I suspect that many contributors like myself would prefer to permit free access to the cue sheets that have created.  A few cue sheets in the BBC cue library were created by me. As Ed pionted out above other comparable clubs continue to offer their cue sheets to the public and the logic that they atttract new rides seems logical to me.

I rode the WCBC Savage Century on Saturday and was planning to upload the cue sheet since it is a pretty nice ride.

I rode this area within the last two months.  Once the turn is made onto Prettyboy Dam from Mt. Carmel simpy stay on Prettyboy Dam until Armacost.  The cue at 20.7 in the cue sheet mentioned (S TRO Prettboy Dam Rd @ Falls) is simply a protective cue.  Prettyboy Dam bears to the left and Falls Road is a clearly separate road to the right (there is a stop sign on Falls Road for traffic approaching Prettyboy Dam).  Staying on Prettboy Dam you will eventually descend (on a pretty rough section of road) to the dam which has a terrific view in the middle.  After passing the dam there is climb and then the right turn onto Armacost Road.
