Four Falls Ride: Four Falls Ride (40 miles) with a Three Falls Ride (33 miles) option. Expansion of my popular Three Falls Ride where we ride on each of FOUR of the various Falls Roads in Baltimore County. Snack early at mile 15.
Cue Page 1 is Four Falls and Page 2 is Three Falls.
Hilly to rolling @ 3700 ft.

Looking like we will have excellent weather and not much wind for Tuesday's Ride.
Leaving Oregon Ridge at 10:00 am.

PMS is needed once bbctalk shuts down
Category: Social

Since the problem only happens after doing a preview, I would prefer to have the functionality of a flawed PM.

If the bbctalk listserv is to be shut anytime soon, the PM system has to be available.
Only other possibility is open access to people's email in order to do private conversations.
(And reduce public forum junk).

Hows about a right at Hanover Pike to left on Long ln. R on Longnecker and L on Butler.
That would remove the scary crossing and the Piney Grove section.

You do realize why Long Ln is not on any cuesheet current/lol
Many mapsets are sadly inaccurate and google maps has many errors.  I suggest the Long Ln option be saved for a drier period and not near the end of a 106 mile ride.

Bob, is the route clockwise or counterclockwise? I can't tell from the map on bikely.com.

Click on the Bikely navigation box where there are direction arrows next to "Point 1 of 1305".
Direction is Clockwise

Besides the normal state of the descent (irregular macadam, loose stones and spilled cement) there are numerous potholes and cracks.  Since the hill is heavily forested, curvy, and steep, visibility is poor.

If you Preview a PM and then Submit it, then body of the message will be BLANK on receipt and the message will NOT be retained in the Sent folder.

Please avoid the descent of Piney Grove between Longnecker and Butler Rds.  The steep descent is now very dangerous given the current road surface.

Add on the extra 1.5 miles by descending Longnecker then left on Butler, right on Belmont.

The PMS messaging service for the forum was inactivated because of some problems loosing messages.

However, if we are to shut down the bbctalk listserve, then BBC members will need a way to communicate outside the public forum.  The PMS provides such a "vehicle".
Alternately BBC members need access to a complete rider directory of email and other contacts.  Although for the Forum paradigm to work correctly, the PMS is the way to go.

One problem with PMS is specifying multiple message recipients.

Isaias has a ride report on reaching 2000 miles already this year.
How are you doing - fill in the poll current/lol
