Club Membership in Ride with GPS

The BBC Executive Board is pleased to announce that it has recently decided to provide a new benefit to the Club’s membership by purchasing a club subscription to “Ride with GPS” (RwGPS), a route mapping internet site. This is not a replacement to the current club's cue library, but rather an added benefit.

Many of you have probably been directed to this site as some of our ride leaders have been posting such links on club ride announcements. By subscribing as a Club to this innovative technology, we gain a place to store as many routes as ride leaders wish to create and have all routes viewable and easily found on our club account.

New BBC Cycling Kits/Jersey Sale

 

The BBC Executive Board is pleased to announce the arrival of the newly designed 50th Anniversary cycling kits.

As an added benefit to BBC members only, the Executive Board has decided in its last meeting to substantially subsidize the kits to offer them below cost at a remarkable price, particularly when comparing their quality to competitive brands. These kits are made of high quality material and cut, designed by Jason Kamps of Woof Cycling, and manufactured by Primal Wear as a "sport cut." Jerseys are with full length zipper. In addition to short-sleeve tops, women's jerseys are also available in a sleeveless version.

The cost to BBC members will be as follows:
(non-members need to join the BBC in order to receive any Club membership benefits)

Complete kit (jersey & short or bib-short): $100

Jersey only: $45

Short or Bib-Short only: $65

The BBC treasurer John Isaacs is stocking these kits and will handle sales.

Beware of Hogweed!

Tis the season for roadside stops, but be aware of the vegetation alongside the road. The plant pictured here in this photo from the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation is known as giant hogweed, and it can cause a rash worse than poison ivy. BBC member Lydia Cunningham shares her experiences with it in this article.  If you’ve seen giant hogweed in Maryland, please contact the Plant Protection and Weed Management Section of the Maryland Department of Agriculture at (410) 841-5920
