This Saturday morning there will be a real estate auction on Glencoe Road, just east of the NCR Trail.  Expect lots of traffic and cars parked everywhere.  Be forewarned if you plan to bike up or down Glencoe Road on Saturday morning, October 6th.  The sale is scheduled to start at 10 a.m.  There are five parcels being auctioned separately or in total, so it may take a while.

This morning, Friday Sept. 21, I observed that Lower Glencoe Road was milled and Upper Glencoe Road was blocked off, and I could see that Upper Glencoe at York Road was already paved.  Obviously, I don't know the condition of the rest of Lower and Upper Glencoe, but it is either not open or very difficult to ride on.  Sparks Road would be the logical option.

I have biked through the new circle several times since its completion, and it works very well. The intersection is definitely safer and much more easily navigated, especially when turning left off of Tufton.

Computer with automatic start/stop

I want to install an older bicycle computer on a spare bike.  I have the base mount and the wiring with the cadence and speed pickups, but I need the computer unit.  The Cateye computer that fits this base mount has three contacts and has automatic start/stop function.  If you have one of them taking up space I have a use for it.  Call me at 410-628-6297

Best of luck to the three women from the BBC Racing Team who have signed up to race in the Wilmington Grand Prix.

Vintage English bike in need of maintenence

Contact Brain Laird at the REI bike shop on Aylesbury Road in Timonium.  410-252-5920.

Yesterday, Nov. 3rd, I talked with a friend who lives near the top of Shepperd Road.  He said they are installing steel pipes in the road bed to shore the road and the stream bank where the road is close to the stream.  Once the road bed is stabilized, they will pave the road.  It's going to be a while until they get to that point.  Shepperd Road is open from Gerting Road and J M Pearce Road up to Troyer Road.

A vehicle lost a large part of a load of gravel and stone at the corner of Priceville Rd., about a week ago, where the road goes right at the top of the short, steep section just before the Quaker Meeting House.  It covers all of the road for about fifty feet.  As you come up the hill, you don't see it until you are on it.  Lack of traction and one to two inch stones could take you down.

If you are coming from Thornton Mill and making the left the stone now covers the entire intersection.  Yesterday, 9/24, I came that way and it was not possible to avoid the stones.  Several times the bike kicked sideways as I hit stones, even at a very slow speed.  The next time I ride out of Sparks I will stop after the ride and sweep the intersection.

To add to the road issues you should be aware that a vehicle has lost a large part of a load of gravel and stone at the corner of Priceville Rd. where the road goes right at the top of the short, steep section just before the Quaker Meeting House.  It covers most of the road for about fifty feet.  As you come up the hill, you don't see it until you are on it.  Lack of traction and one to two inch stones could take you down.
