Good words. I cannot disagree, however this seems like the perspective of yet another healthy, well-schooled guy from a nice neighborhood to imply that riding in the streets is "knowledge (that) is readily available and the skills easily learned".  The problem is, not everyone has these privileges. Many (most?) people have a lot to overcome to get a decent working bike, to keep it safe,  and to find other riders or resources to learn from. Gotta give these people all the help and respect we can.

It ain't all that, but I'm really not seeing what the "difficulty" is with the new forum.

I got Isaias' post in my email inbox (as I see all the posts from this forum) same as when we were using BBCTalk.
I clicked the topic link in the email which took me to the topic view here- no searching.
I had logged in earlier and was still logged in, so I clicked reply and started typing this.

So, what was that- read, click to forum, click to reply. hmm... one more mouse click.

This Sunday's Randonneur's Ramble
Category: Social
Forum: Ride Reports

There is a lot of great weather and great rides scheduled for this weekend. Get out there and enjoy the saddle time!

This Sunday, the Randonneur's Ramble takes a big loop up into Carroll and Frederick counties. A very pretty ride that starts off hilly, rounds off after the halfway point and gives an easy descent back to Baltimore.

The Rando Rambles are all day expeditions of 100 miles or more. These are not rides you "knock out". They are rides you take the day for. They are more like bicycle-ridden surveys reaching from Baltimore to Maryland's (and neighboring state's) farms, forests, river valleys, mountains and historic small towns. I list them at 15-17MPH, but rarely go over a 15mph average (and often much less). There are always short mileage options and breaks every 25 miles. If you've got the day free and can manage a 13-15mph pace for many hours of sight-seeing, then I heartily encourage you to ride one.

There will be a new and different Ramble every month. Next month the ride is on April 4th (two weeks away on Easter sunday) with a route up to Holtwood PA over to the eastern shore of the Susquehanna.

If have any questions about the Rando Rambles or if you are on the fence about riding one and would like some encouragement, don't hesitate to email me.

Enjoy the weekend everyone!                   -Bob Wagner

cannot login on first try with either safari nor chrome on a mac
Category: Social

I, too, am on a Mac OS 10.6 running Safari 4.0. I have also gotten that message, but only once when I had multiple login windows open.
I've not had a problem since them.  (not sure if that was the issue)

Steve, you're so damn reasonable. I like that Long rd though. All of this is only to avoid the Deer Park  bridge construction. Phooey.
I'll probably drop down towards Reisterstown then:

Hows about a right at Hanover Pike to left on Long ln. R on Longnecker and L on Butler.
That would remove the scary crossing and the Piney Grove section.

Here is a preliminary routing of my March rando ramble.

Before I hop on the bike and give it a check-out ride, I thought maybe some of you could give me some preliminary trouble shooting. See anything in there that is dangerous, unpaved, or closed? Also, if the route is nearby a particularly nice riding road that I'm not using, I'd love your suggestions. I'm mostly interested in the areas west of Lake Liberty.

My commute is 17.5 miles each way. Some days I can be a bit late and I either ride one of Steve Z's rides or I'll ride a "super commute". This was today's
