Many of us liked having it in the afternoon instead of the evening, and also liked Andy Nelson's barbecue.  Please keep it in mind for next year.

The Grist Mill trail in Patapsco State Park will close after Labor Day for 12 months.  Here is the explanation (scroll down to "Alerts"): … apsco.aspx

I have cancelled the Taneytown-Littlestown ride which I posted yesterday, due to the distance from the Baltimore area, and the fact that many gas stations have NO GAS (the first two that I went to this morning had no gas).  I have posted a substitute ride which starts at Lindale Middle School.

Instructional Series
Category: Social

I assume there will be an Instructional Series this year?  If so, I'd like to see a page with all the info, and a link at the top of the home page, posted sometime before the Westminster Swap Meet on Sunday February 9, 2020.  It is something we promote to people at the swap meet who stop by our table.  And many thanks to all the folks who run the Instructional Series.

It wasn't changed on the ride schedule.  It's still on the schedule for tomorrow (Sunday 10/27).

I was looking at Apple Fritter rides on RideWithGPS, and I found two apparently identical rides, with very different elevation gains and maximum grade %.

The first one says 1,289 ft of climbing, with max 8.1%
The second one says 982 ft of climbing, with max 3.9%.

There's a huge difference between 8.1% and 3.9%. WTF?

Larry's Ride needs volunteers
Category: Social
Forum: Volunteers

Larry's Ride, honoring Larry Bensky, will be held on Saturday 10/19/19 starting at Oregon Ridge park. I am not planning to ride the event, but I see that they need volunteers. Many of us CWC volunteers are very experienced at driving SAG vehicles, handing out food and drink at rest stops, etc.  I plan on volunteering, I hope others will too.

Click on "Volunteer" at the bottom of the page to see the list of volunteer assignments.

Re: temporary barrier for parking.  I have a bunch of stakes, 4 to 6 feet long, and we have Caution tape. I used them at Gathland one year, roping off an area to discourage riders from walking over to the tree line to urinate.  We can use them at Thurmont.

Lindale Middle School - avoid these days
Forum: Road Problems

Some of us have been riding the BWI Trail for our "spring training", parking at Lindale Middle School.  We need to avoid parking at Lindale on these days:
This Saturday 3/30/19, there will be a flea market in the parking lot from 8am-1:00pm.
The following Saturday 4/6/19: it is Little League Opening Day. We found out a year or two ago that this involves jammed, overflowing parking lots, and some street closures for a parade.

It's best to get to the Swap Meet early, because:
- best selection
- late arrivals will have to park on a muddy field, when the gravel parking lot is full.
