Hi all. Thank you for the kind words of support. Im lucky to have only one bad injury - my busted ankle. All orher injuries are not disabling. Im healing and getting used to walker and crutches. It'll be a bit before im on my feet but that time will come. No need for cards. Your well wishes here are much appreciated. Happy New Year all. -"rando" Bob

Monument to Monument is in it's second decade. Wonderful ride at and easy pace from Baltimore to DC on lightly travelled roads and bike trails. Come on out. Sunday May 19th

Up on the calendar is the 10th anniversary of the Monument to Monument ride.
We take it nice and easy on scenic roads and bike trails all the way to DC.

Is 2018 your year to give it a ride?   -Bob

Hey. Fun article, Steve. Thanks for sharing.

I've been through both of the Breezewood Pike to bike tunnels. I drove out there a few years back with a group of friends. Very strange and wonderful experience. You'll need good lights! Even biking on the long outdoor stretches of the old highway are crazy fun.

If you've ever ridden the GAP/C&O trails between Pittsburgh & DC then you've hit a few tunnels on their list. I did that in 2014. Also, highly recommended as a bike adventure.

I've been through many of the DC tunnels over the years. Great infrastructure down there.

I'm trying to think of any bike/ped tunnels in our region. There's a couple of short tunnels along the Gwynns Falls trail NW of Carroll Park. Can't think of other tunnels around here.

Doh. My bad.

I'm pretty sure I have a couple different 28's you can borrow to test.

My SOMA smoothie has fairly tight tolerances. It doesn't fit many 28's but it does fit one of my fav. all-around tires the Conti 4 Season GP which are more like a 27mm. I might have an old worn one of these to test.

Usually front fork crown distance is not a problem, but rear brake bridge and stays can be very tight. Also, the wider your rim, the smaller your OD becomes.

Anyhoo. I've got tester 28's if you want them.

28 inch. Sure?
This would be the same ISO as a standard 700C tire, but it is a rare way of stating it.

Or, perhaps you mean 28mm width?

Since it's a rainy day full of cancellations you could kill time reading Sheldon Brown's page
