I had such a wonderful ride on Saturday. Thank you for all that you guys did to pull it off! Unfortunately in my post-ride euphoria I neglected to pick up my CWC shirt. Can anyone point me in the direction of who to contact to arrange a time and place to pick it up? Thanks!

Covered Bridge Metric Century entry available

I have one wristband available for Sunday's Lancaster Covered Bridge Metric Century. Unfortunately my wife won't be able to make the ride this year. We got in early so it's only $35. So if you missed the registration window before it sold out, now's your chance.
The weather forecast is great. It should be a nice ride. If you would like it, but just call me at (410) 340-8541 to make arrangements to pick it up. I'm in Hereford.

Cheers,
Mark Hochstein

You have got to be (bleepin') kidding.  Benson Mill Rd. in that stretch is just a little ~country lane!  Hope your paper-hanging days come to an end soon...

My sentiments exactly! It's not like I was riding a on a major thoroughfare. From now on I'll be one of those guys riding 3 feet into the lane.

I was riding eastbound on Benson Mill Rd between Yeoho and Cedar Grove. It happened so fast that I didn't get any vehicle discription - and since I didn't let actually hit me I'm sure it would be hard to charge them with anything. Big lesson learned!

So, there I was...feeling pretty good about myself since I got up and went out on a crisp fall morning for a ride on my sweet new road bike. But 9 miles into the ride I got pushed off the road by a driver who just couldn't wait 15 seconds for a truck towing a horse trailer to go by in the opposite direction. I was being far too considerate to the vehicles and riding too close to edge of the pavement. My front wheel got caught in the rut next to the newly paved blacktop and promptly dumped me in the road. I just missed the back end of the car that was passing me. I put my left hand down to break my fall and heard/felt a POP as I hit the pavement. After spending a day in the ER at Union Memorial it was diagnosed as a coronoid fracture with dislocation. That was Friday.
This week I saw the elbow guru - Dr. Eglseder at the University of Md. He decided that it's best to pursue without surgery since the coronoid bone is in place nicely. He said I will be a "one armed paper hanger" for the next 6 weeks.
This sucks. I had just started a training program to give me a good base for the spring. I'm out of work for the next 3 months. I'll be climbing on my spinning bike as soon as I'm able, but right now I can't even tie my own shoes!
