I considered trailing a black flag behind me with a big 3 on it. Signs are a good idea, whatever you want to do.

I'll send you my modified version tomorrow and you can comment before I finalize. I know the ride through the city quite well.

Terry,
I know. This was done quickly before we settled on where the start is. As it is now it starts at my house. I iwill modify and send out a clean, law abiding, correct map tomorrow morning. Don't bother with it yet. Tomorrow we will e-mail (and post) it to everybody with all points of convergence, info etc. I have to go out now for a couple hours.
Thanks,
h

Terry-I have a paid subscription to MapMyRide and will tweak and clean up the route, send it in pdf to you to print.

Barry-That's all good

Nigel-Very good idea indeed. I will pick one of those spots as a main rendezvous before entering Annapolis.
I am on Facebook and had done an event announcement as well, but most of my FB friends are in NY.

Okay, the way this is shaping up we have three points of departure so far.

Starbucks and Roland Ave-For people riding the whole way from Baltimore  8:00

RacePace in Owings Mills-Talk to Marc at Racepace about when their group leaves

Cromwell Lightrail station at the head of the B& A trail 9:30

Barry, Is there adequate parking at Cromwell? Do you know? Are you joining us? It would be great to have somebody who knows that little section of the Gwynns Falls connecting over to Hollins Ferry etc.

Joe,
That's great. You will be meeting up with the Baltimore group, probably down to you by 8:30.

Keep checking back as times and places may change but everything will be solid by Sunday.

Terry,
Can you shoot me your e-mail so I have you on my list. I have a flyer that I want to run by everybody.
The way I see this thing is like this. It's very last minute so a mass start and scheduled meet up points are impossible. I plan on leaving Bmore at 7am from intersection of Roland Ave and N Parkway. I would like to tell everybody to just be at the State House by noon. They don't have to ride the entire distance, they can park off the b&a and ride in, as long as they ride in. We don't have a scheduled time to meet our reps or know when they're voting. What's important is that we get as any cyclists to Annapolis by noon. And it needs to be stressed that this is a memorial ride so no BS, no running lights, not a Critical Mass knd of thing. we need people to see our best side.

I also want to make it very clear that this is an unsanctioned ride, not affiliated with the BBC or any other club. Everybody is responsible for their own safety and behavior.

Hey Isaias,
The time is yet undetermined, this is all coming together last minute and of course will be a bit disorganized. We're working on it. We are waiting to hear from Cardin's staff on when best to be in Annapolis. I'm thinking noon, we'll probably leave Balt around 7am putting us near Carrroll Park at like 8am. But please stay tuned.

Terry,
The ride is posted. First time I've scheduled a ride so let me know if I've botched anything. There is a link to the route there. I may tweak it but it's a fairly simple route. As Nigel said people can park somewhere along the B&A, even as close as the bridge into Annapolis. I haven't got a time yet for when we meet in Annapolis but I'll keep you posted. Cardin's staff said they would have a better idea tomorrow.
Marc at RacePace is on it as is John Kelly who has quite a bit of political background. Marc also said that Larry's widow would like to be there. It looks very strong that this bill is going to pass but I think the ride may add extra weight and it's also a memorial ride in Larry's honor, bill or no bill. Stay tuned
