A cooler of water at the ride start
Category: Social

Thanks to ride leader Mark Raginsky for bringing a cooler of ice water to the ride start on Sunday.  The water was still cold after the ride, and it was VERY much appreciated then, when all I had was warm water and gatorade.  Bringing a cooler is such a good idea, I want to encourage other ride leaders and/or participants to do it this summer.

Looking for a Mt. Bike or Hybrid for Someone 5' 7"
Category: Technical

I have an old Raleigh mountain bike in good condition that I will donate.  It belonged to my son, who coincidentally is in Cameroon right now!   I'm sending an email to Tim.

New to area... Towson to Hunt Valley?
Category: Social

I live nearby, in Lutherville.  Your second route is better. The Beltway interchange on Dulaney Valley Rd. is still pretty scary, but better than York Rd. or Charles St. It's 5 lanes wide at that point. If you are going north on Dulaney Valley, you can make a left on Charmuth Rd. (there's a left-turn-only lane and a traffic light) and take Charmuth all the way to Ridgely.  Charmuth is a residential street.

You should test drive these routes during your normal commute time, of course, since rush hour traffic is completely different than weekend traffic, and afternoon rush hour is usually worse than the morning.

Nathan Krasnopoler, the 20-year-old Hopkins student who was right-hooked and run over by an 83-year-old driver in February, died yesterday.

The article says that the family settled their civil suit, and they insisted that the driver permanently give up her driver's license.

Baltimore Sun story mentions BBC
Category: Social

There is an article in the Baltimore Sun that mentions the BBC, specifically the Instructional Ride Series with quotes from Gordon Peltz, and a link to our web page.

In the next few weeks, ride leaders might want to watch out for newbies showing up at their ride starts after reading the article, totally unprepared to ride 30 or 40 miles.  I biked to work on Bike to Work day, and met a guy who didn't even have a water bottle or a cage to hold one. We were biking 12 miles from downtown Baltimore to Towson/Lutherville.

Patrick,
Welcome!  You and your girlfriend should come to the Instructional Ride series which starts May 1st. It's for people who are new to road biking or whose skills are rusty. Click on the "Instructional Rides" link in the Main Menu on the left.

Novara Carema $600 OBO like new barely used

I got a "404 Page Not Found" error when I clicked on the link to the Craigslist ad.  Just remove the period at the end of the string and it works fine.

Finally, the Baltimore Sun has an update:
http://weblogs.baltimoresun.com/news/cr … accid.html

"Police have received numerous inquiries from citizens and city officials about a report in which a police spokesman said charges were not likely to be filed, which the department's chief spokesman now says was premature. "  Looks like all those phone calls and emails have made a difference.  And please tell your friends & try to be at 39th St. & University next Wednesday 3/9 at 5:30pm.

The Baltimore Sun hasn't  had any updates on this, but the family of Nathan Krasnopoler, the young man who was hit, has created a Facebook page with updates on his condition:
