Westminster to Emmittsburg Canceled; Replaced with A New Blast from the Past.
I will be unable to lead this Sunday's 15-18 ride Westminster to Emmittsburg. I am substituting it with "A New Blast from the Past" as an "Early Bird" ride. By leading an 8:00 AM ride from Oregon Ridge, I can make my Sunday PM commitment. I apologize for any for any inconvenience this change may cause.

Hi All
I have changed the start time to 10AM from 9:30 AM to allow more time to drive to New Freedom and to have time to enjoy breakfast at the diner where the ride starts.

Hi All
It has come to my attention that there may some confusion about entering the ride start time when adding a new ride. If you change the "Ride Type" from (?)" meeting" (the default) to "all day event", you will lose the ride time start box as well as the totally useless ride time end box. When I added some rides, I did not pay much attention to this wording since I recognized the format from Google Calendar. However, I now know that some members have been put off and not been able to enter rides correctly because of this wording. If you select "all day event", the default ride time start is 12AM!
On Thursday's Board meeting, I will ask Georgia G., our president who is now also functioning as the web site liason to Will, to see what Will can do to clarify the wording and eliminate this booby trap. Since the programming change might take some time, members need to be aware of potential problem with the "Ride Type".

Hi All
Isaias is correct in his last post about gravel on Indian Steps Road. So I emailed Jim Guild, the BBC member who developed this ride, about the route. I have corrected the MapMyRide.com map---  http://www.mapmyride.com/route/us/md/ma … 463245791.  (Indian Steps- Revised)
The detour down to the museum starts at mile 31-- not mile 29 as is shown on my original map. Going to the museum starting at mile 31 avoids the gravel part of Indian Steps Road. My memory is pretty shot these days, but I did not remember any gravel roads on this ride.
Sorry for any confusion.

Hi All
I read Isaias account of his ride along Indian Steps road. It appears that he did the entire loop back to Rt 425. Jim Guild's Indian Steps cue sheet has us doubling back to Rt 425 the way we come in avoiding the gravel part of the road (now I know why he had us go back the way we came in). I don't remember riding on a gravel road on this route. See the map on MapMyRide.com.  http://www.mapmyride.com/ride/united-st … 053853585.

Hi All
I will not have time to drive or ride the route before May 1. The cue sheet in the Cue Library dates from 1997; I last rode it in 2006-7. This makes the route fairly old and unused. I did, however, map the route on MapMyRide.com . The URL for the route is : http://www.mapmyride.com/ride/united-st … 053853585. As far as MapMyRide.com is concerned, the route still holds.
For those not aware of MapMyRide.com, the website has a "Fly-by" feature that allows you to see the route as a fly over. The Fly-by feature is as current as Google Earth can make it.
If anyone in the club has done Indian Steps more recently and knows of any significant changes to the  route that is not on the club cue sheet, please let me know.
Thanks,
Ed Cahill

Hi All

BikeRadar reprinted Lance Armstrong's reply to Tony Kornheiser rant about a bicycling lane in Washington DC. I think there needs to be a response from all cyclists to this rant which is basically advising maiming or killing cyclists.

"What a complete f-ing idiot" – Armstrong
By BikeRadar


American radio talkshow host Tony Kornheiser has joined the ranks of cyclist-haters (like the UK's Matthew Parris and James Martin) by claiming live on air that motorists should “run 'em down”.

Today Lance Armstrong used his Twitter page to pass on his thoughts on Kornheiser, saying: “Disgusting, ignorant, foolish. What a complete f-ing idiot.”

Kornheiser – who got in trouble last month for publicly criticising the way a female colleague dressed – was discussing a proposed new cycle lane from the White House to the Capitol in Washington when he began his rant.

"The last time I looked, the roads were made for automobiles...," he said. "We're going to be dominated as if this was Beijing by hundreds of thousands of bicyclists ..."

He's no fan of cycling attire either, saying: “They all wear … my God … with the little water bottle in the back and the stupid hats and their shiny shorts. They are the same disgusting poseurs that in the middle of a snowstorm come out with cross-country skiing on your block. Run 'em down.

“Let them use the right, I’m okay with that. I don’t take my car and ride on the sidewalk because I understand that’s not for my car… Why do these people think that these roads were built for bicycles? ... They dare you to run them down.”

To hear the full rant, head to this page and skip to 31 minutes into the show.
