Janet, Have you been getting your miles in?

The thousand for January is tough, but at least there were 31 days to do it in. 1,000 miles for Feb is hardcore. 28 days and all that snow. Fine work.

LD Adventurers,

Since the trails are not clear, we'll have to postpone the 3 cities Century till spring. As a simple and safe substitute, we will be riding Frederick rd out to Frederick and back. Start is still from the south corner of Carroll Park. Easy parking and bathrooms at McDonalds across the street. I rode Fred. rd to Mt. Airy last Mon. and the conditions were uneven, but good. However, we might encounter occasional frozen washouts if conditions are right. This is an out and back ride so, infinite turnarounds possible. Do come. READ THIS BEFORE RIDING- http://tinyurl.com/RandoRideNotes

Please email me if you've got any concerns or questions.

7:50AM Meet. 8:10AM push off.
Carroll Park south corner. Baltimore. see here: http://tinyurl.com/ygfr7sn

I must admit to having no first hand knowledge of the trails, but I would have to guess that any bike/ped trails are going to be dead last for snow removal. The path around Druid Hill still shows one set of footprints. Unfortunately, path riders might have to wait a long time till they're seeing pavement. Alas.

I am having to change the route of my century ride this sunday. 20 miles of it was on paths.
It will happen though.  current/smile

Steve's pretty much described it. Roland has an uneven snow wall, but perfectly rideable. Same goes for Lake, Falls (north of Lake), Hillside and most of my commute corridor from the city NW up to Owings Mills. If you are riding at night or in sub freeze temps, you might want to invest in studs.

I'm lazy. (when I can be)

Can someone explain to me what's wrong with doing nothing?
Why are we putting extra effort into deleting a club archive?

If someone wants to move it to the new site. Fine.
If someone wants to improve the interface and searches. Fine.
Just don't delete it.

I was thinking that it was more common for ride leaders to reference other's rides in making new ones. It's a critical resource for me. When I design new rides I look at cuesheet central, bikely and other club's ride libraries. This info is important because I don't know what the roads are like in Lancaster PA or Anacostia in DC. I need local experts. Frederick Pedalers, WABA, etc. are the only experts I can rely on. My ride might be 100 miles, but if I can use a local commuter's 10 mile route to get me through west Frederick safely, I really appreciate it.

I am not asking the club/Will to do more work. I was only wondering why we are taking the effort to delete a worthwhile library. Club history is not just some cute fascination for me. It is helpful information- just as helpful as new information. And saving information is what computers do best.

There are about 90 rides listed on the new site and about 250 on the old one.
I'd love to see all of the old rides added to this new site and perhaps allow dated notes so that riders could evaluate whether the ride is still feasible.

None of my rides are on the new site. (am I supposed to add all of my rides from last year?)

Perhaps the better question to ask is: why not save older club info? Is it problematic? Expensive?
These rides give history to the club.

A useful resource that I think is well worth saving. I'd love to see a link to the old ride library from the new site.
