For Mapmyride, go to the MORE tab, select Download GPX and save the route.

Why use Mapmyride when the BBC has a club account with RideWithGPS?
RWGPS will allow export of garmin course type files (.fit or .tcx)

Assuming it went on Saturday, I am moving it from Sunday (tomorrow) to Saturday (10/26).
The poster should have altered the Calendar entry!

The ride (26269318) quoted was actually recorded by a rider and uploaded to rwgps.  Rwgps does not reveal the recording device so we don't know if barometric altitude or what weather changes may have occurred that day.  A stop for fritters with a concurrent weather change can have a major effect on altitude.  Note there are also many possible errors using elevation databases so often a barometric altimeter is considered superior.

The BBC Board posts Meeting minutes at
The Board Meetings usually include a Treasurers Report.
However due to the current state of the Board (including the lack of a Secretary), the currently last posted Minutes are from March 2019.
There is a Board Meeting scheduled for Wednesday evening which is posted on the Rides Calendar.  I suggest you go to the Meeting if possible.

Additional planking has been added to the bridge, doubling the width of the parallel planks.  This means the center original decking is much narrower.  Use caution, especially when wet.

St. Clair Bridge Road in Jarrettsville to close starting Saturday

A section of St. Clair Bridge Road in Jarrettsville will be closed between Route 165 and North Bend Road for about three weeks starting Saturday.

The Harford County Department of Public Works — Bureau of Construction Inspections is closing this portion of the roadway in order to have the bridge over a tributary to Deer Creek cleaned and painted, according to a county government news release.

Emergency vehicle will also not have access within the work zone, located about 250 feet north of North Bend Road.

Follow detour signs or make other arrangements if you plan to travel this roadway during the three-week period.

Questions about this closure may be directed to 410-638-3217 ext. 2437.

Response to my email to Baltimore County Engineering concerning the Cuba bridge. 

Thank you for your concerns regarding our Bridge No. B-0029 on Cuba Road over Western Run.   Interim measures (new/temporary deck boards and barrels along the sides of the bridge to keep traffic in the center of the bridge) were necessary due to some loose and deteriorated deck members.  We have begun design for replacing the deck but do not have a date for construction at this time.  We will investigate placing additional warning signs at the bridge as well as trimming some of the vegetation to improve sight lines.

Should you have any further questions please advise us.

CAUTION - Cuba Rd North wood decked bridge is narrowed with dangerous added longitudinal planking.  The planking will fit most cars/trucks but could trap a cyclist.  Likely extremely dangerous when wet.  There is little visible warning due to road bend when approaching southbound.  A cyclist will have nowhere to go if encountering a car on the bridge.
