Baltimore Bike Club Mobile Schedule

Saturday, August 18, 2018

13 - 15 mph - Piney Hill Sparks Loop - 8:30 am - 35. mi - Mark Miller,   4438462481,   mark.miller105@aol.com
START: Oregon Ridge -- Ride Terrain: Rolling With Hills,    Regrouping: Some,  Rest Stops: Snack,  Rain Cancellation: Sprinkles,

We're starting early to beat the heat and also the rain forecast for the afternoon. Ride leader will have cue sheets.  Rest/snack stop at Filling Station cafe (mile 27). 

Per Gary Kelly's note, the concert starts at 11:30am. Leaving at 8:30 should give us enough time to beat the crowd and find parking space. I'll get there by 8:00am and will stay there unless the lot is crowded or the staffers deny access to all but the concert goers. Should that be the case, I'll be leaving from the Oregon Ridge Nature Center located beyond the Oregon Grill Restaurant (look for the sign).    



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!

  • 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

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!
