I was contacted off the forum.  I was told that if the ride was posted on the BBC web site that there were certain protocols that need to be followed.  It was purely my interpretation that this was for legal reasons, as I don't really see any other logical reason.  I apologize if I'm causing a stir and there's some other reasoning afoot.

The contact sounded very official, so I assumed this was a club official or moderator of some sort contacting me.  I've since looked back, and I'm not so sure anymore.  I asked the person if they were indeed a club official.  If they aren't, then I'll see if I can find an official position on the subject and report back what I find out.

As for the sign-in sheet, if there's some specific reason I need somebody's contact information, we'll exchange it after the ride.  Emergency phone numbers?  Sure, those are essential, but you don't need a signup sheet for that.  Individuals just need to have some common sense and carry that information in a smart place.  Now that I've said that, I'm sure to have an accident next time out, and nobody will be able to find my info, lol.

Anyway, there's no hard feelings here, just trying to have some fun with some like-minded people.

It was a pretty polite slapping down.  Not so much violence.  I understand the need to protect the club against litigation.  I suppose a single lawsuit could ruin us.

If I'm planning to ride by myself and I just want evrybody to know where I'm going to start from and at what time, is there an appropriate section of the forums for that?

So I guess that by posting a ride here, this becomes a club ride, I am agreeing to become a ride leader, and I will need to adhere to certain club protocols (sign-in sheet, helmet preaching, etc.) if the ride takes place.  I apologize for the mistake on my part.  This ride is hereby cancelled.  A very special thank you to all those lawyers out there.

I will, however, report back on what the condition of the Patapsco trail that starts near the Rolling Rd ParknRide was at 5pm on Thursday night, as I expect to be there at that time to commence a ride on my Khaki colored Rocky Mountain Slayer.  By myself.  Nobody's invited.  I'm serious.  Don't show up and expect to ride with me.

Weather permitting, we're gonna hit the trail Thursday night (3/25).  Leaving from Rolling Rd (by the parknride) at 5pm.  Intermediate pace/skill level, back to the car by 6:45.  Post here if interested in joining us.

Is there a way to get a daily digest of ALL subscribed forums?

Forum: Ride Reports

How about Allegrippis in PA?  Looks like a bit of a hike from B'more, but maybe it's a possibility?  The reviews make it sound fast and rolling.  I like technical stuff as much as the next guy, but this might be a cool change of pace.

Also - is there a MB ride schedule, or are they just arranged through the forums?

I'm not happy with the Forum and don't wish to lose the old Yahoo list

Yes, this forum is better.  Thanks to the developers and to BBC leadership for the hard work.
