Where are we now?


This next contest is a little easier. Of course it helps if you are not always looking at the wheel in front of you.

Check it out, and let's not be so shy about entering this contest. Details and the new prize are in the forum

From the Archives: The Hunt Valley Hundred 1997


This is the cue sheet for the 1997 Hunt Valley 100. Look at the roads it goes on.  How much has changed since then? How much is the same? Bob Wagner pointed me to the old Yahoo archive; I found this and other treasures there.   The old archive is still existent!! It is the Yahoo group: BBCTALK.  If you want access to this old history, post something in the forum.  

I think this 1997 cue sheet is probably the oldest still around.... (Think you have an older one? Post it--jpeg or pdf--in the Ride Reports Forum. I will put the oldest posted to the forum on the front page of the web site.)

Ten Mile Bike Race from Halstead's Hotel to Nine Mile House


That bicycling has taken a strong hold on Baltimoreans and is growing in popular favor was strikingly attested by the large attendance yesterday at Halstead's on the Pimlico road, to witness the beginning and the conclusion of the impromptu ten-mile bicycle race. The road through Druid Hill park was, at 9 o'clock in the morning, thronged with cyclists and vehicles, all hurrying to Halstead's.

Where are we now? Why did the chicken cross the road?


This weeks photo was submitted by Tom Valenti. The story behind this submission and the description of the prize and how to win are in the forum. Remember the winner is chosen at random and points are awarded for "good pulls".  What is a "good pull" in this context?  For the "context" of the chicken photo, click on the small image on the left.
