Instructional Ride Series: Week 4

On Sunday, May 18, forty three hardy souls ventured forth from Greenspring Station to face the challenges of riding in traffic, climbing hills, and changing gears. Pictured are riders successfully climbing a beautiful Baltimore County Road, and more photos are in this report. For the upcoming Session Six, riders will meet in Jacksonville and experience the joy of riding in scenic country with low traffic.

 

 

Instructional Ride Series: First Session

The BBC's 30th annual instructional ride series has gotten off to a great start. The first ride on May 4th was well-attended with nearly 40 riders. Gordon Peltz, Howard Kaplan, and Gary Brandon led out three different groups depending on skill levels and stamina. The quartet group pictured on the left completed 30 miles. Two of the riders are training for the Seagull Century, and another wanted to see how far she could go. The next session will be on Sunday, May 11 at Marley Station Mall. See flyer for more information.

Israel Ride 2013

"After this, my first organized ride, the joy of riding has inspired me to become a lifelong biker and given me the ability to throw away a previous image of a sedentary old age."

Team BBC Launches New Website

Team BBC has been working hard over the off season to introduce a new website. This site was built entirely by our talented teammates. The new tools will allow us to use one URL as a communication hub. The site is still at TeamBBC.net. Special thanks to Russel Lebo of data:ink:io for being the mastermind behind this build.
