Team BBC - Team BBC Saturday Social - 9:00 am - 31 mi - Alex Harisiadis,   ,   alexharisiadis@gmail.com
START: Baltimore, MD -- Ride Terrain: Flats And Hills,  Ride Leader's Pace: 14 mph,  Regrouping: Some,  Rest Stops: None,  Rain Cancellation: Sprinkles,

Every Saturday is Team BBC's Saturday Social, a friendly, social-pace ride intended to welcome both new and experienced road riders.

We meet at Artifact Coffee at 8:30 am to grab espressos and pastries before we roll out 9 am for a 31-mile route out toward Timonium and returning to the City, covering both hilly and flat terrain. This is a no-drop ride, featuring an average pace of roughtly 14-15 m/hr, but there are three segments where riders are encouraged to drop the hammer and test their legs! We sprint at:

- Thornton Rd. climb b/w Seminary and W Timonium
- W Padonia b/w Cleghorn and Falls
- Bellemore climb

Occasionally, the group will also charge the climb up Park Heights from Caves to Greenspring Valley Rd.; this is on a case-by-case basis. We regroup immediately after every sprint point and continue as a group.

Safety is a priority on this ride. We stop at all stop lights and stop signs, and group ride behavior (attacking the front, half-wheeling, etc.) will not be tolerated. Poor weather, such as significant precipitation, excessive cold or heat, cancels the ride.

People new to group riding are especially welcome to join this ride. We aim to teach people that road riding can be safe and fun, and we will work on group riding skills with all riders, both new and old.

We look forward to riding with friends, new and old!

START: Baltimore, MD -- Ride Terrain: Flats And Hills,  Ride Leader's Pace: 14 mph,  Regrouping: Some,  Rest Stops: None,  Rain Cancellation: Sprinkles,

Every Saturday is Team BBC's Saturday Social, a friendly, social-pace ride intended to welcome both new and experienced road riders.

We meet at Artifact Coffee at 8:30 am to grab espressos and pastries before we roll out 9 am for a 31-mile route out toward Timonium and returning to the City, covering both hilly and flat terrain. This is a no-drop ride, featuring an average pace of roughtly 14-15 m/hr, but there are three segments where riders are encouraged to drop the hammer and test their legs! We sprint at:

- Thornton Rd. climb b/w Seminary and W Timonium
- W Padonia b/w Cleghorn and Falls
- Bellemore climb

Occasionally, the group will also charge the climb up Park Heights from Caves to Greenspring Valley Rd.; this is on a case-by-case basis. We regroup immediately after every sprint point and continue as a group.

Safety is a priority on this ride. We stop at all stop lights and stop signs, and group ride behavior (attacking the front, half-wheeling, etc.) will not be tolerated. Poor weather, such as significant precipitation, excessive cold or heat, cancels the ride.

People new to group riding are especially welcome to join this ride. We aim to teach people that road riding can be safe and fun, and we will work on group riding skills with all riders, both new and old.

We look forward to riding with friends, new and old!

Team BBC - Bumpy Belt Loop - 6:00 pm - 24 mi - Ian Jackson,   (830)708-6424 please tex,   porus07@gmail.com
START: 1813 Falls Road -- Ride Terrain: Hilly,  Ride Leader's Pace: 16 mph,  Regrouping: Some,  Rest Stops: None,  Rain Cancellation: Precipitation >60%,

It's baaaaaaack! THIS THURSDAY, wheels roll 6pm at Baltimore Bicycle Works, 1813 Falls Road.
We'll take the first few weeks easy, so don't be shy.
 
This is a full drop ride. 16mph average with sprint climbs sprinkled in. We will make a general effort to ride at an inclusive pace, and we will always regroup for a minute after Circle Road, but there are no guarantees. If you flat we'll leave you behind. If you're too slow we'll leave you behind. If you're too fast you'll leave us behind. So know the route and pack what you need to be self-sufficient.
 
Bring your own lights (please, please bring lights!) Bring your own cue sheet. Bring your own flat kit. And bring a real bad attitude because there's KOMs to win!
 
New for 2018 is a modified route. https://ridewithgps.com/routes/27209373
 
Mostly the same as before, we just take a more mellow route to Bellona. This will require us to navigate the switchbacks up Falls Road, so please be considerate of other trail users and always yield to pedestrians.
 
If you are accustomed to intercepting the group on Roland, you will need to revise your plans.
 
The following rules will be strictly enforced.
  • Helmets mandatory
  • Functional brakes mandatory
  • Wheels roll 6pm sharp
  • Single File on Falls Road
  • We stop at all stop signs
  • We stop at all red lights
  • We always yield to pedestrians
  • We never escalate road rage incidents. (no yelling, no gestures, and no physical contact)

  3. Circle Road counter-clockwise

Team BBC - Team BBC Saturday Social - 9:00 am - 31 mi - Alex Harisiadis,   ,   alexharisiadis@gmail.com
START: Baltimore, MD -- Ride Terrain: Flats And Hills,  Ride Leader's Pace: 14 mph,  Regrouping: Some,  Rest Stops: None,  Rain Cancellation: Sprinkles,

Every Saturday is Team BBC's Saturday Social, a friendly, social-pace ride intended to welcome both new and experienced road riders.

We meet at Artifact Coffee at 8:30 am to grab espressos and pastries before we roll out 9 am for a 31-mile route out toward Timonium and returning to the City, covering both hilly and flat terrain. This is a no-drop ride, featuring an average pace of roughtly 14-15 m/hr, but there are three segments where riders are encouraged to drop the hammer and test their legs! We sprint at:

- Thornton Rd. climb b/w Seminary and W Timonium
- W Padonia b/w Cleghorn and Falls
- Bellemore climb

Occasionally, the group will also charge the climb up Park Heights from Caves to Greenspring Valley Rd.; this is on a case-by-case basis. We regroup immediately after every sprint point and continue as a group.

Safety is a priority on this ride. We stop at all stop lights and stop signs, and group ride behavior (attacking the front, half-wheeling, etc.) will not be tolerated. Poor weather, such as significant precipitation, excessive cold or heat, cancels the ride.

People new to group riding are especially welcome to join this ride. We aim to teach people that road riding can be safe and fun, and we will work on group riding skills with all riders, both new and old.
