BBC Biker In Peru - May 2018

 

In May 2018 I went to Peru and on 4 days of my trip I biked in the Sacred Valley region between Cusco and Aguas Callientes, the gateway city to Machu Picchu.  I used a mountain bike provided by Aspiring Adventures, the tour operator.  Younger people on our trip headed to the off road tracks.  But as a road biker, I preferred to remain on the asphalt for the 10 + mile descents that we rode each day. High in the Andes, the scenery was majestic.

The 2018 Greencastle Great Escape

Will miracles never cease?

For the fourth year in a row – every year we've held the event, actually – we managed to dodge a weather bullet.  But this time, just barely.

Attendance at this year's Greencastle Great Escape was slightly below last year's numbers – a result, no doubt of a very wet and late-arriving Spring.  And the forecast for the weekend was not very promising, either:  a  chance of rain on Friday, and then rain all day on Saturday and Sunday.  Even so, almost everybody who had registered for the event showed up, and we even got a few who had not preregistered.

50th Anniversary Celebration Re-Cap and Thanks!

 

Our 50th Anniversary Ride and Celebration held on June 2nd was a big success and attended by many!

Boy oh boy, were we lucky with the weather?!  Just as WBAL had forecasted, rain didn’t come until later in the afternoon.  It was heart-warming to see so many riders show up on such an iffy-weather day and to see so many sporting old club jerseys.  We counted over 110 riders!
