    Baltimoron's introduction

    Greetings, everyone!

    I'm Liz, a 31 year old woman living in Baltimore, MD, USA. I've been mountain biking (XC, recreationally) for a few years, and just bought my first road bike last night. Between the two, I expect to be doing a fair amount of biking, and I'm really looking forward to it!

    I do hope that's not REALLY how people from Baltimore refer to themselves.

    It's actually Baltimorean, I think. But Baltimoron is often used by residents of Charm City to poke fun at ourselves. I prefer it.

    Well Hun, even Baltimorons know Baltimore (Bawlmer) is nicknamed "charm city", or also "the city that reads" (I think I read the benches at the bus stop right). Just be careful not to get a flat tar on some of those rough city roads!

    Well, it used to be "The city that reads" but the benches now display "The Greatest City in America"! No, seriously.

    And yeah, the roads in the city are absolutely terrible. They'll defintely be a challenge!

    Welcome, hun. If you ever decided to ride south into Anne Arundel County, give me a shout or drop an e-mail and I can show you some pretty interesting rides. From the easy but scenic and enjoyable BWI Trail, linking to the WB&A Trail for about 20 miles of easy pedaling to a tour of the hills of Crownsville, where steep descent means HANG ON!!!!!

    Liz, I live in the Balto. suburbs. May I suggest some BBC rides (check their web site...do a "Baltimore Bicycling Club search)....or if you are fast (or just want to be), try the Wednesday night training ride out of Oregon Ridge park. The ride leaves promptly (more or less) at 6 PM from the Oregon Ridge parking lot. There are usually sevaral women on this ride. The pace at the front is 20-22 MPH for the 31 mile loop, but with 20-30 riders, there is always somebody to ride with.

    hello liz,
    greetings from another local. do you live in the county or in the city? i live in the county but i commute to the city during the week. theres lots of cyclists around here but i know only a handful of them. its nice to know there are other people from baltimore who will be sweating and cursing at the oppressive humidity that we have yet to encounter... that torture makes me a stronger rider

    never thought about it but are there a lot of people from baltimore on this forum? ill have to do a search now...

    Hi Liz,
    I am yet another Balto biker babe (Mt.Vernon) that is. I got into biking in the city a little over 2 years ago. I just got a good road bike and hope to be racing soon. I am glad to hear you are into it! have fun!

    ...and to the rest of you, I am new to the forum and will most likely ask a bunch of questions about how to get started racing (besides the start line) and other things related. So if anyone has immediate feed back on this matter I will get back to you immediately.

    Thanks...
