As of 6/16: Hillside between Greenspring and Stevenson is being paved today.

Greenspring north of Hillside has a section being milled today.

Is it possible to get cold drinks (non-alcoholic) from the liquor store?

On a more positive note, the Mr. Charles store at Park Heights and Walnut is re-opening under new ownership.

Any tips on training indoors?
Category: Social

Use a video program such as Real Rides or Spinervals. The programs tell you what gear to get into, when to get out of the saddle, etc.

If Kant Were a New York Cyclist
Category: Social

The link to the NY Times story is:  www.nytimes.com/2012/08/05/opinion/sunday/if-kant-were-a-new-york-cyclist.html

A common sense approach....

Is there a Corn Roast Ride this weekend? The link on the homepage seems to suggest so, but the link is to last year's event. Is there a ride this year?

Thanks!

Bike Maryland is working to strengthen the 3 foot law

Forum: Advocacy

I also love the idea of helmet cams! As Lindsay notes, video could provide important information with respect to drivers who do not comply with the law. Moreover, as she also notes, such footage could be helpful with respect to advocacy, not merely showing blame on the part of motorists, but showing the right way to bike and drive. There is also the value of recording something that catches your interest. Case in point: I recently saw the YouTube clip of the BBC's Tuesday Night Time Trial (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qmTMA24kZt4) and loved seeing the roads that I ride.

Who doesn't love a discount? I think this is a great idea for the club to consider trying to use its purchasing power. The BBC should conduct an online survey and find out how many members would be interested in buying a helmet cam if a discount were available. I don't believe that purchasing this item would hurt the LBS, as most purchases of this kind are probably done through large online sellers.

Finally, use of helmet cams could give rise to a great BBC contest - the best and worst awards, with members uploading examples of great and terrible techniques, to be judged by a panel. It could bring some great media attention to the BBC and help to contribute to positive advocacy.
