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.

Tailgate Potluck

On Sunday May 21, more than 35 BBC members enjoyed our first ever Tailgate Potluck ride -- despite the damp, cool, and cloudy weather and a first time ever ride start at Howard County's Western Regional Park.

The rides of 60, 50, and 25 miles were modifications of familiar club rides in the cue library.

The food, mostly provided by the riders and a little from the club, was very much enjoyed. As can be seen from the photo, tailgates were not needed as we snagged an unused pavilion with tables.

The club's new banner was used for the first time. Members will be seeing it again at future club events.

The favorable response from the participating riders may well lead to a few more potluck rides this year at this location or other locations. Members are encouraged to give the Board any suggestions for future dates and locations.
