A big thank you to Gloria Epstein for organizing another great End-of-Year event at Oregon Ridge on November 11. The attendance, food, camaraderie, setting, and program were all excellent! Thanks, Pat, for your service to the BBC and for conducting an informative and productive meeting. Thank you and best of luck to Nabil Ali as he takes the reins of the BBC, along with the other the new officers and board members. Also, thanks to those who helped to make this event a big success: John and Jane Cole, Larry Kenney, Mary Menne, Rich Burns, Steve Zeldin, and Evie and Mike Reinsel. It was great to see so many long-time BBC members together enjoying themselves on a beautiful November Saturday afternoon. The years and miles fly by.

A big thank you to Bill Blankenship for all of his hard work in bringing about yet another great BBC picnic! From the delicious food, excellent routes, great weather, big turnout, and wonderful camaraderie, it was a very fun day! Thanks also to quartermaster Mary Ryan for her essential work at this and all BBC events. Thank you, as well, to Rob Keiser for putting together the delicious trail mix packets that we all enjoyed. The abundance of smiles and laughter, on the roads and in the pavilions, is a testament to the much-appreciated efforts of Bill and company.

Sorry, have to cancel May 21 Tandem ride--Taneytown to Gettysburg because of injury.

Bill Saunders, Mountain Club President said that Bob Carson has died
Category: Social

RIP Bob! Bob also ran the 1984 Gear Rally at tTowson State University for the BBC. This was a wonderful weekend long event with 1700 participants who enjoyed rides (up to the 100+) mile century from Towson to Gettysburg, workshops, guest speakers, entertainment, meals, and more. In his later years, Bob did a great job of heading up the Kent County Spring Fling! Bob was a wealth of knowledge about all things BBC and bicycling. He was BBC president and worked on the CWC route markings. Bob also worked for cycling at the national level with the League of American Bicyclists. We were so thankful to see and speak with him at the BBC awards dinner last November.  Mike and Evie

A big thank you to Gloria Epstein for an excellent BBC celebration!  The November 12 gathering of the Baltimore Bicycling Club, at Oregon Ridge Lodge, was a big success!  Great food, wonderful camaraderie and a strong turnout made the annual BBC recognition and election event an occasion to remember.  All of Gloria's hard work and time were much appreciated by the capacity crowd of cyclists on a beautiful autumn afternoon. Congratulations and thanks to the ride leaders, officers, board members, event leaders, and volunteers who help to make the BBC such a great organization!

It is with much sadness that we report on the sudden passing of longtime BBC member Rita Overman Bennet on August 14, 2022 in Sebring, Florida. Rita will always be remembered with much love for her enthusiasm, laughter, generosity, and magical spark that lit up every room. She was a part of the very successful 1984 Towson GEAR Rally Committee--the biggest event in BBC history. Rita was married to Bob Bennett, four-time BBC president. Together they revitalized the Sebring Bicycle Club, and oversaw many successful bicycle rallies in Sebring. Rita's spirit lives on in all who knew her. More information may be found at: … ta-overman

A big thank you to Phil Manger for all his hard work in making this year's Greencastle Great Escape a wonderful and memorable weekend of cycling. Mountain views galore on quiet roads with friendly cyclists is a recipe for fun. Those who rode all three days were well- rewarded for braving the weather forecast as the sun brightened the roads and our spirits.

Congratulations to Marg and Pat and everyone who helped to make the 2022 Chestertown Weekend a great success! The food, riding, activities, people and camaraderie were all excellent! It's hard to come home again after so much fun.

Tomorrow's Runnymede Tandem ride will depart at 9:30 am instead of 10 am.
