This is Team BBCs 32 Mile Saturday Ride.  All riders are welcome, not just Team BBC members!  This spirited loop will leave at 9:00 a.m. sharp from Baltimore Bicycle Works during January and February.  The route traverses through Hampden via Roland where we will ride 2 wide in the lane (the bike lane is a dangerous place).  We will wind out to Bellona and eventually head to our 1st of 4 segments:

These are spirited segments where you can choose to increase the tempo or not.  We will regroup at the end of each.

Segment 1: Thorton (Seminary to Timonium)

Segment 2: Broadway (Cleghorn to Falls)

Segment 3: Park Heights (The elevation part to Greenspring)

Segment 4: Bellemore (From Falls to Roland) **Possible Hill Repeats**

We will also practice a rotating pace line on Hillside.  If the group is larger than 8 we will break up into two groups.  Focus here is to work on a smooth pace line, not to hammer it.  

From Bellemore, we will roll back to the shop.

16 And Over - ORR - April F@@L's Day Ride?!?! - TBD Miles - 9:00 am - TBD mi - Steve Zeldin,   410-812-6816,   szeldin@comcast.net
START: ORR -- Ride Terrain: Rolling With Hills,  Ride Leader's Pace: 16 mph,  Regrouping: Frequent,  Rest Stops: Snack,  Rain Cancellation: Go No Matter What,

April Fool's Day Ride!?!?... Ride Leader will bring a fun ride consistent with the spirit (and weather) of the day. This special version is suitable for the 16+ Weekend Riders. Snack break at mile xy. Thanks to Livened Zest for the cuesheet. A special yx mile shortcut without breaks has been arranged for this ride by Crusher Nut Tort. Please bring a calibrated cyclometer or be prepared to ride with the group. There will be a cuesheet with mileage points, but anything else goes...

I am still awaiting the cuesheet and this entry is just a placeholder to be updated as we get nearer to April First.  I am in fact not even sure it will start from Oregon Ridge, or if it does, that it will end there.  Livened Zest was frustrated that his efforts in 2016 were for naught, in that weather cancelled the April Fools route.  L.Z. insisted that 2016 routing required dry roads to be successful (wtf)...

April Fools Day
