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!

  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.

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.

Thanks,

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.

Does anyone know of a list of local (MD/DE/PA/VA) century rides scheduled for this summer and fall?  Other than our CWC and the WCBC 'Shorefire' century in August, I
haven't seen any others scheduled.

Here's a link to the 'Shorefire'...

Since we're doing club rides again and the CWC is scheduled, I was wondering
if the Flatlands century from Chesapeake City is going to be scheduled this summer?   I assume we can still do it as a standard club ride.  Is there a most recent version of the Q sheet for the century and metric century loops?

since my Continental GP tires with a reflective strip are not available
anymore (and the new GP 5000 tires don't offer them), I'm looking for a
way to tape or paint a white reflective strip on a bike tire...kind of like
a white wall, but for the purpose of making me on my bike more visible to motorists.   I've tried using white reflective tape, but it doesn't stick
very well and it's messy.

Does anyone know if there is a simple way to do this, or if there is a shop
in our area that does this as a business?  Please feel free to respond here
on the forum in case other riders have the same question, or let me know
via my email, billc_gary@prodigy.net.

Thanks,

Anyone have any info on road conditions at Columbia Gateway?  If much of the 2 mile circuit is wet with snow melt or covered with salt, I won't bother to clean my bike after my ride today.  OR...it could be clean and dry all the way around, in which case you should come to the gateway and ride with me!!

Thanks for any information,

Bill Gary in Baltimore
