I have a pair of white Louis Garneau HRS-300 (course 2LS) shoes,
free to a good home. They WERE a size 47 when I bought them a
few years ago, but I left them in my car after a long ride in
summer and they shrank.  They are now size 45.5 or 46.

They are the fancy LG shoes with 2 boas...I hope one of you can
use them.  Let me know if you're interested, we can meet
somewhere so you can try them on.

  Anyone know of anyone local who does work on bike clothes?  I
just bought a pair of the worst fitting bib shorts in history,
I'm thinking maybe I can salvage them by adding fabric to the
shoulder straps. Other than a cleaners shop who does alterations
(but would be unfamiliar with the fit or fabric of cycling clothes),
is there anywhere else I can take them?

Let me know here in the forum....I'm sure other BBC folks would
want to know if such a place exists locally!!

   I have a Sportful Tirreno_Adriatico Cyclamen (points) jersey for sale,
  new with tags attached.  It is  size XL and still too small for me
  (I'm 6 ft. ½ inch, 160 lbs.)  I'm thinking  someone between 5-8 and
  5-10  or 5-11 would be comfortable in this jersey.

  Asking $50.00, or best offer.  If you're interested, let me know and we
  can meet somewhere local for you to try on. I can also send you a
  screenshot picture of the jersey.

Mark, I was eating my protein bar at Aldi in Timonium (8 miles from the finish
of my bike ride) when this guy approached and asked if I was with the BBC. I said
yeah, he asked if I knew a guy named Mark Tabb...his name is Tim Galliger, he
said he rode with you on some 'Cycle Across MD' events. He knew Ed Cahill and a few
other BBC folks.   Small world, huh?

Just when we thought BV was a goner, I received this in the mail yesterday.
Of course,  they can 'postpone' this like they have for the last 2 years! … all-event/

  I was just thinking about our Flatlands ride from Chesapeake City, and
wondering if it's going to be scheduled this year.

Larry,  I looked into the 'bike about' outings in April and June, and they
sound very interesting.   You may want to post a standalone notice here on
the forum to alert other BBC'ers of a BV alternative in April or June this year.

Thanks again for the notice...I had never heard of the 'Bike About' tours!

Bill Gary

Thanks for the reply, Larry!!  I didn't know about this 3 day bike event, which sounds like fun.    Do you have any clue as to what's going on with BV?

If they are trying to alienate their attendees they are doing a great job!  By now, many potential BV guests have made other plans for June.

Bill Gary

I haven't been paying much attention, but also I have not received any
notification or update from Bike Virginia regarding the 2022 tour. Does
anyone know if the 2022 event is officially cancelled?  They are not great
at communication with their attendees!!!  Let me know via email or just
respond on this forum in case anyone else is wondering the same thing.

While doing Emery Church loop today, I saw a sign on Cuba Rd saying the wooden
plank bridge on Cuba about a half mils south of Western Run would be closed
Thurs the 26th and Fri the 27th. No mention of whether or not bikes would be
able to cross safely.
