    I'm back in Essex. I'll write a longer ride report later. Right now, all I want is a hot cup of soup, soak under a hot shower, and a nap. I'm definitely sick. Throat is scratchy and burning and my upper chest feels like it's filled with cotton, and I feel like I need to cough up a fur ball.

    My final mileage total is 92.6 miles.

    L8ter.

    Well ya did good anyhow.

    After I get the kids to bed later tonight I will write up a full report with pictures.

    Legs are a bit sore, but I am still tempted to do a short easy roller spin tonight just so they don't get too tight.

    Nice ride guys. I was out(not biking ) at 8. It was very cold at that time(20's). I thought about the you 3. As the day warmed I wished I had gone. Since I commute so often in cold I chose not to ride below freezing for recreational rides. No racer w/ a cold, I might have been able to keep up. Grreeat trip report

    I’m kicking myself now for not joining you guys. I don’t know what it is about this winter but I have been having off and on temperature issues that I did not experience last year. Sometimes I fine over a wide temperature range and other times I am not.

    NoRacer I hope you feel better.

    Back in the day, when I used to live in Pasadena and work in D.C., I rode the MARC every day (Penn Line) from BWI. But that other day was just a one-time thing -- I had to go to a conference at the Omni Shoreham Hotel (conveniently located a block from the Woodley Park/Adams Morgan Metro stop!) I never tried to bike to the MARC -- I didn't get back into cycling again until after I was no longer working in D.C.

    My hat is off to you dedicated commuters. A very long time ago, I lived in England for 4 years and did not own a car, and cycled everywhere. But I only lived about three miles from work, and I didn't have to look nice when I got there! I did enjoy it, though. Right now I live much too far from where I work (41 miles one-way, via interstate roads), but I'll probably be moving in May, so I'm keeping the bike commute possibility in mind as I'm starting to think about where I should go.

    That's a chunk of miles. Commuting by bike and train has been one of the best changes I have ever made in my life. I no longer fear going towards DC. Sometimes the train is late or slow but I ain't driving. I also can look a little frumpy when I arrive at work and often do. I am also fortunate to have a shower when needs dictate. Hope your move allows you to bike commute.

    No Racer has been quiet...the bug must have put him down!

    Stayed home Monday and Tuesday. I'm at work today, but I've got a serious sinus leak. Gross!

    Coughing has subsided for the most part, but if I were to get out on the bike in the cold air, I'm sure I'd resurrect it.

    I'm hoping I'll be ready to ride by the weekend.

    Hi locals. Saw a picture today on Sunspot of a woman walking her dog around Lake Montebello. Is the area open for riding yet? They closed it for a few years back for work - whats up with that area?
    Thanks

    Here is a little hour-and-a-half training ride I did yesterday after work. This route works pretty well early and late season when one is forced by short days to ride during rush hour. Most of the route goes against the prevailing traffic (excepting heading out on Providence Road but once over the beltway, traffic is light).

    This loop has several good climbs with Notchcliff (aptly named) being the biggie.

    http://sports.groups.yahoo.com/group/bbctalk/
    If you have trouble posting a Q let me know and I will do it for you.

    Folks: March 1...Spring is in the air!

    For those interested in a century (or two) this weekend, the DC Randonneurs are putting on the following rides (Saturday looks like a sufferfest--yeah!):

    SATURDAY, MARCH 3, 2007
    Lothar Hennighausen is leading "LES LAMENTATIONS DE LOTHAIRE" (aka
    "Lothar's Lament" for those not PBP-bound), starting from Monocacy
    Middle School, Frederick, Maryland. MEETING TIME 7:30 a.m. This is a
    new ride and it's going to be a doozie. There are 7 CODE RED climbs,
    so get ready for the big hurt. I don't want to destroy the element of
    surprise so I won't tell you more than that. Lunch at Nan & Pap's in
    the village of South Mountain. 100 VERY SCENIC miles, with a metric
    option and an optional 7-mile shortcut near the end of the ride. Since
    Lothar's going to lead the ride, he is COMMITTED to riding every inch!


    Directions to the ride start:
    MONOCACY MIDDLE SCHOOL, FREDERICK, MARYLAND, 8009 Opossumtown Pike,
    Frederick MD 21702 From D.C. Beltway, take I-270 north 31 miles to
    Frederick. Continue north on US15 3.7 miles. Take Motter Ave exit
    (sign for Frederick Community College). Turn RIGHT at the traffic
    light onto Opossumtown Pike. In about 1.5 mi. turn RIGHT into Monocacy
    Middle School parking lot (just after Frederick Community College on the
    left).



    ******************************************

    SUNDAY, MARCH 4, 2007
    "THE SANDGATES CENTURY," starting from D.C. Martin Elementary School,
    Bryantown, Maryland. MEETING TIME 7:30 a.m. Here's a kinder gentler
    ride offered as an antidote to Saturday's torture-fest. Highlights on
    this southern Maryland ride, mostly in St. Mary's County, include many
    Amish farms and an Amish meeting house, Greenwell State Park, an
    optional side trip to the Sotterley Mansion (see
    http://www.sotterley.com/), and lunch at the Seabreeze Restaurant in
    Sandgates, where if we're lucky we might get a glimpse of Shrimpy the
    Kelp Gull! See
    http://www.livejournal.com/community...tml?mode=reply
    and
    http://www.wamu.org/programs/mc/feat...th_shrimpy.php
    . 102 miles, with plenty of shortcuts.

    Directions to the ride start:
    T. C. MARTIN ELEMENTARY SCHOOL, 6315 Olivers Shop Rd, Bryantown,
    Maryland
    From DC Beltway, go south on MD5 Branch Avenue, toward Waldorf (Exit
    7A). In 12.2 miles turn left on MD5 (TL) (just after entering Charles
    County) (sign to Lexington Park/Leonardtown). In 3.2 miles turn left
    on Leonardtown Rd to remain on MD5 (TL) (Bus. 5 goes R). In 4.9 miles
    turn right onto Olivers Shop Rd MD232 (blinking TL). In 1.1 mile turn right
    into school parking lot.

    For Contact information, go to:

    http://www.dcrand.org/
    2009 mileage = 14,738 miles; 2010 mileage = 15,234 miles; 2011 mileage = 17,344 miles; 2012 mileage = 11,414 miles; 2013 = 12,169
