Long Distance Bike Riding Talk at Velocipede Tues. May 4th. 7PM

Long Distance Bike Riding and Randonneuring Talk at Velocipede Bike Project on Tuesday, May 4th at 7PM

Ever wanted to just get on your bike and ride to the mountains, to the Chesapeake Bay or to some neighboring city or state, and then be back home at the end of the day? To have a bicycle adventure of a hundred miles or more that’s self-supported, self-propelled and self-reliant?

Velocipede Bike Project is hosting a talk on Tuesday, May 4th, 7pm. explaining how to ride your bicycle long distances unsupported. The talk will provide you with helpful tips to make riding 100+ miles possible and even comfortable. It will give you information on appropriate bike frames and equipment, improving your performance on the bike, eating and drinking during the ride, tips on handling weather and darkness and how to find safe routes from the Baltimore area. We will also cover some of the history of long distance riding and Randonneuring.

The talk will come two days after the scheduled “Monument to Monument” ride going from Baltimore’s Washington Monument to DC’s Washington Monument and back on Sunday, May 2nd. We can get reports about that ride from members of Velocipede who are planning on riding it. For more information about this ride or the talk contact Velocipede or bobwag"at"

Bob Wagner rides more than 150 miles per week commuting from his home in Hampden to work in Owings Mills as well as riding longer distances on weekends. He designs 100+ mile routes from Baltimore City to far-off places in MD and surrounding states and has been leading The Rando Ramble, a century ride, each month for the Baltimore Biking Club. Last year he rode 18 centuries.
