Hey folks:  I use a helmet on every ride but do not want the politicians telling us we have to. I have worked with a bunch of cyclist in the last year where police did not issue a single citation to motorists responsible for car accidents involving cyclists. Not a single citation even though some had witnesses or the motorist was obviously at fault.  Yet some politicians seem hellbent on "making" us wear helmets while allowing motorist a free pass.
   Many people feel differently about using a helmet.  That is not what this is about.  I often hear in the media after a cyclist is involved in a crash...."the cyclist was not wearing a helmet".  Yeah, like that is the reason for the crash.

Fly to Miami and bike down through the Keys.  Flights to Miami are usually $150rt from BWI.

......  Glad we don't have to do a Bob Wagner memorial ride. It would have to be a hundred miles and I would feel compelled to go on it.

And it would be held in winter with no support:)

Are you still interested in obtaining a Counterpoint Opus? I have an Opus II -- not sure how old it is, but it must be at least 15. Let me know if you want to know more.

Hi Dorothy:  Is this still for sale?  Thanks Charlie

Baltimore Bike Party sponsored Bob Moores Moonlight Madness ride last night.  All I can say is WOW!!  Over 700 cyclists, cheering locals, respectful drivers, wonderful police assistance at major intersections and concluding with a party at Wyman Park Dell, music, dancing, food, beer and smiles.  Bob Moore would be proud.
Pictures and discussions are being posted:

While the trail is not officially closed it might as well be. Catonsville Rail to Trail held a bike ride to Ft McHenry on the 4th and encountered numerous downed trees along the way.  Consider the Gwynns Falls Trail closed at least along Winans Way and between Windsor Mill and Frederick road.  The new trail spur up Winans had 2 large trees blocking the path. The GFT dirt section south of Windsor Mill and West of Frederick had about 10 trees downed (some very large).  Some trees needed 2 cyclist to pass the bikes over

Folks from Proteus bike shop took Grand Champion.  Their sculpture takes a fun look at the "1%" of our society.  The unicyclist in the mud pit is Ben, one of Bobs Rando rider regulars.  Strong rider that did very well cranking through the mud.  Check out the link.

Balto County board approved the plan, thanks for all your efforts.  We still need to get pass Kamenetz, no slam dunk here.  He doesn't seemed very enamored with cyclist. More on that later, see Loch Raven post.
