The rides calendar has been updated with the new Ride with GPS route to reflect the detour for the Mason Dixon Road bridge closure.   Instead of adding a mile it subtracted a mile so the ride is now 61.7 miles and according to RWGPS 4700'.

New Ride added for Tuesday, September 7.  Ride start TMP at 9:30, 69 miles.

The Ride with GPS link in the listing will lead to a ride that says "Russell's Two Taverns" . It is the correct route but with the wrong title.  here is another link with the correct name but both are the same.   https://ridewithgps.com/routes/36630364

I post this last September, so this is just a reminder.   If you are heading up to Fairfield the Sunoco Station seems to be completely closed with no indication of reopening soon.  There are not many options now in Fairfield.   A BBC group grabbed sandwiches at the Book and Table Café yesterday.  The turkey sandwich was enjoyed by those who got it.

It is a small café and not super fast.



Vulnerable Road User legislation to become law in Maryland.

Congratulations and many, many thanks to Bike Maryland, the late Kim Lamphier, Nigel Samaroo and Josh Feldmark, among others, for their tireless efforts to get this important legislation passed this year.

Since the "Earth" will provide much better weather on Tuesday April 20, the ride originally scheduled for Thursday 4/22 will now be on Tuesday 4/20.   See ride schedule for details.

It was sad.  Few vendors (all just folks trying to sell their old stuff) and few customers.  I didn't see much money changing hands.  I suspect that the effort wasn't even a break-even $ event - but it was great to try to keep it going in such a tough year.  Conspiring against it was Covid, the weather, and bike shops that may have been too busy to consider attending.  Lets hope that things are more normal next year.  (Posted by Barry from Mary's account.)

Here is a link to an old article in the New York Times.

Not sure how it recently came to my attention but it is good reading for a day so windy it might be hard to keep the bike upright!

We were surprised yesterday to discover that the A-Plus Store at the Sunoco Station in Fairfield is closing.  The Subway restaurant is already closed and there is no food left in the store to purchase.  Limited drinks are available but they are mostly sodas, no Gatorade or equivalent.   There was no indication of exact date of the closure or replacement store, etc.   We were pleased to see that Ventura's is still open with limited outdoor seating.  I believe the old market closed years ago.
