Baltimore Sun story mentions BBC
Category: Social

There is an article in the Baltimore Sun that mentions the BBC, specifically the Instructional Ride Series with quotes from Gordon Peltz, and a link to our web page. … e-20110520,0,1741932.story

In the next few weeks, ride leaders might want to watch out for newbies showing up at their ride starts after reading the article, totally unprepared to ride 30 or 40 miles.  I biked to work on Bike to Work day, and met a guy who didn't even have a water bottle or a cage to hold one. We were biking 12 miles from downtown Baltimore to Towson/Lutherville.

Welcome!  You and your girlfriend should come to the Instructional Ride series which starts May 1st. It's for people who are new to road biking or whose skills are rusty. Click on the "Instructional Rides" link in the Main Menu on the left.

Novara Carema $600 OBO like new barely used
Category: Technical

I got a "404 Page Not Found" error when I clicked on the link to the Craigslist ad.  Just remove the period at the end of the string and it works fine.

Finally, the Baltimore Sun has an update: … accid.html

"Police have received numerous inquiries from citizens and city officials about a report in which a police spokesman said charges were not likely to be filed, which the department's chief spokesman now says was premature. "  Looks like all those phone calls and emails have made a difference.  And please tell your friends & try to be at 39th St. & University next Wednesday 3/9 at 5:30pm.

The Baltimore Sun hasn't  had any updates on this, but the family of Nathan Krasnopoler, the young man who was hit, has created a Facebook page with updates on his condition:!/pages/Nathan … 1227673255

Free Yakima roof rack parts
Category: Technical

Free to good home: Yakima roof rack components listed below.  These actually come from two different roof racks, 10-15 years old, but all parts are listed are in good condition, no rust.
(4) locking towers (keys included), currently mounted to the factory roof rack of a 1995 Subaru wagon, which is going to the junkyard soon.
(2) 48" tubular crossbars
(2) trays with straps for bike's rear wheels; each tray is just 8" long.  I recommend buying new rubber straps because of their age, $26 per pair at REI,
(1) skewer mount for front fork
(2) wheel forks (see )
(2) ski mounts
Call Mary at 443-676-0891 if you are interested in some or all of these parts.

Topic: Calendar
Change in Sequence
Category: Social

Stephanie,  I've made the same request numerous times ever since the new website and calendar went live.  Ed Cahill has created a poll in the "Website Suggestions" Forum.  Go over there and vote that you want the calendar to run Sunday to Saturday, not Monday to Sunday.

Per the Baltimore Sun:
A section of Falls Road in Butler will be closed from 8 p.m. Friday, Nov. 5, through 5 a.m. Monday, Nov. 8, according to the State Highway Administration. The road will be closed to allow for pipe repairs under the roadway. Falls Road will be closed to through traffic between Butler Road and Black Rock Road. It will be closed to local traffic between south of Stringtown Road and north of Butler Volunteer Fire Department. … d-nov-5-8/

Please update the directions to ride start GLN, Glenelg High School
Category: Social

More than a year ago, the road construction at Rt. 32 and Burntwoods Rd. in Howard County was completed. The traffic light is gone, replaced by three (3!) traffic circles.  The directions to GLN, Glenelg High School, are incorrect in the Newsletter, the Ride Start Directions web page, and the Group Rides page. They all say "turn right at the traffic light onto Burnt Woods".  The directions should be replaced with this, courtesy of Google Maps:
From the Baltimore Beltway, take exit 16, I-70 West. Go 12 miles, get off at Exit 80, onto Route 32 south. Go 3.4 miles, bear right onto the exit for Burtwoods Rd & Ten Oaks Rd. At the 1st traffic circle, take the 2nd exit onto Ten Oaks Rd. At the 2nd circle, take the first exit onto Burntwoods Rd. Go 0.9 miles; turn left into school parking lot.

Isn't that easy?  Now try getting back on 32 North or 32 South from there.
