Team BBC Launches New Website

Team BBC has been working hard over the off season to introduce a new website. This site was built entirely by our talented teammates. The new tools will allow us to use one URL as a communication hub. The site is still at TeamBBC.net. Special thanks to Russel Lebo of data:ink:io for being the mastermind behind this build. 

 

February 20 Jarrettsville to Delta Loop

This is a favorite cold weather out and back route because of the wide shoulders on Rt. 165 and the rest stop at Buon Gusto pizzeria. In spite of the low temps, we ended the ride with a stop at Jarrettsville Creamery for ice cream. Pictured are Bill W., George C., Rich B. and Gloria E. 

 

Baltimore County Receives National Recognition for Complete Street Policy

Baltimore County was recently ranked sixth among 83 communities in the U.S. for its Complete Streets programs. Established by the Baltimore County Pedestrian and Bicycle Advisory Committee (PBAC), the policy ensures that all new roads will be built in consideration for pedestrians, bikers, drivers, and those using public transportation. See Baltimore Sun article for more details.

As the advocacy arm of the Baltimore Bicycle Club, Bike Maryland helped promote the Complete Streets Resolution.

 

February 2 New Windsor Pancake Breakfast Ride

 

 

Not all sixteen hearty souls are captured in the photo, but be assured that everyone who stopped for the all you can eat meal was smiling. As usual, the food was delicious and plentiful. We needed the calories to get back to South Carroll High School. Check the ride schedule for upcoming pancake rides. You'll find two posted each month.  

 

BBC Annual Meeting a Great Success

A record 166 members attended the Annual Awards Dinner and meeting. The Committee headed up by Jeffrey Marks (pictured) did a fantastic job. Thanks, Jeff. In addition to a terrific dinner provided by Bear Brothers Catering, the club elected a new board and gave out major awards. See program for names and details. Additional awards will be presented at the Spring Social on March 28.

We didn't know it, but our new President, Ed Cahill, is a legend among the Howard County General Hospital scene. Some of our members thought you might like to know a bit more about Ed.

Thanks, Ed, for picking up the baton.
