    Oh, I forgot to mention the one interesting thing about the meeting -- the new BBC Web site should be up and running by 1 February. We got a preview of some of the features -- it's a lot more interactive, particularly with regard to the ride schedule, looks pretty cool. Cuesheetcentral will be phased out, as will the Yahoo BBC group (there will be several "forum" sections set up on the Web site for chatting.)

    Also, going forward, membership dues are going to be less for those who opt to get the newsletter only electronically, and more for those who want a mailed printed copy.

    Wow! That sux!

    Glad Bob brought his bike inside or it could've suffered the same fate.

    Welcome to my neighborhood. The York Rd. Corridor is like a supermarket for thieves. Bummer.

    I was going to go to the meeting but my wife was fixing dinner and I was pretty cozy. I did a solo 48 on Saturday as opposed to the BBC ride which I missed by dragging ass in the a.m.
    Did an indoor class at Meadowmill on Sunday, it's a Ride for The Feast training group. Might be joining their team for the RFF ride in May.
    Did 20 easy recovery miles today at Mbello, wild weather, springlike and then rather dramatic clouds moved in and the wind literally pushed me around, now that's a strong wind.
    I should be on the road tomorrow and Wednesday as the weather looks good.

    Tentative: Barry's Bikes, beer and baristas ride.

    Sunday Feb 7

    Basic Tentative outline: Starting at Dunkin Donuts on Reisterstown & Falstaff, pick up Harry (Roland and Lake), Bob (Roland and 36), Maxine and Charlie (BWI trail) NR can chime in where he would like to meet on this route. First stop is a cute little coffee Shop on the B&A Trail (north of McKinsey Rd IIRC) then to Annapolis for lunch at Moe's Southwest Grill‎. Back to the city with a rest stop at Royal Farms (Annapolis and W Patapsco) then to The Diz for dinner and drinks.

    Any thoughts or suggestions? Maybe invite the club to join in at Marley Station?

    Woohoo! Sounds like a plan.

    You can pick me up somewhere convenient for you three that's along the way--perhaps Carroll Park.

    If you invite the BBC, make sure they know that bikes are mandatory--no MVs! Actually, they can drive and park at the Dixon Observation Parking Lot and ride to Marley Station, minimum! Ok... I'm kidding (sorta).

    I should be able to swing the coffee-and-lunch portion of the ride (Sundays are often a bit tougher for me than Saturdays.) At the risk of NR turning his head and giving me the palm of his hand I may opt to stop at my house on the way back and then drive up to The Diz. (Not sure I want to ride through that Hanover/Patapsco/Pennington-Cherry Hill/Curtis Bay gauntlet later at night . . .)

    Oh, and NR -- no mention of the racing team at the meeting, I'm pretty sure. I was a few minutes late, but they were on a different topic when I walked in.

    I guess I should resubscribe to the team listserv to find out what's going on. I wasn't sure if I was going to race for Team BBC this year or go "unattached" (or race at all), but I wound up renewing my license under the team.

    I wonder if Michael Ball will send me a Rock Racing kit if I ask him for one?

    NR-There is a meeting of the BBC men on Feb 13. I'm not saying one way or other if I'm actually going to take the plungs this year. All I know is I need 2k base miles, working on that now.

    As for Barry's ride, sounds epic, gotta see if I have a prior commitment. If not I expect I would be doing a rounder from Lake and Roland.

    All,

    As we've been talking about lately, and as we did last year, we're going
    to have a Men's Team meeting scheduled for the 13th of February. I'd
    like to have everyone arrive by/at 5 p.m. so we can hopefully get down
    to business shortly after. On the agenda is a discussion of the coming
    season's races (which we're individually planning to be at, which we
    want a big showing at, etc.) as well as some talks about strategy and
    anything else that might come up. We did this at Geoff Frost's house
    last year, and as a first-year racer, it was extremely informative. This
    is a great time for our new guys to learn a lot from the more ...
    experienced ... racers.

    I've been working on my recipes for pizza dough and sauce, so I've got
    that covered. If someone(s) could bring frosty beverages, you would
    surely be regarded as a hero of the team, and if anyone wants to bring
    other snacks, that is also very much welcomed.

    Also, if your significant others and children (Also known as your
    "supporters") are feeling left out of your racing life, feel free to
    bring them along, and they can mingle upstairs while we talk business in
    the man-cave.

    Please at least reply to me if you're going to be here so I know how
    many pizzas to make, and let me know if/how many supporters you'll be
    bringing (and how big their stomachs are.) Here are all the important
    details ...

    What: Men's Team Meeting

    When: 13 February 2010

    I'm good for the Barry ride. I had been mulling over that Proteus Cycles CX race, but I was leaning towards 'no' anyway.
    The Miyata single speed/fixed has a fair amount of toe overlap which is manageable for road riding, but I could see myself getting hung up and doing an endo in a CX race.

    Way better to ride with you guys.

    Teresa and I are headed to Key West next week.

    I'll be hard-pressed to get in the miles down there.
    I'll probably take my shoes and pedals and rent a ride when I get down there.

    Hope to have a good tan for Barry's Beer and baristas ride on the 7th.

    Lucky bastard. I was briefly there a few years ago with my boys when our snorkeling trip at Bahia Honda was washed out. Melissa and I were there before we had kids, it's fun, we rented a scooter, that was really fun. Bahia Honda SP is beautiful, just up the road a bit, you can see and walk out on the old bridge that was wiped out by a hurricane, the old Flagler railroad. I read a book aBarracuda2006SRogerson1.jpgbout it, you would find it pretty interesting and may make for a good vacay read. Just google Flagler's railroad. Maybe you can ride up route 1 a ways.

    This looks a lot like my bike from the late sixties. Schwinn.
    You really need to watch out for these. Melissa and I saw lots while snorkeling and one grabbed my line while fishing for tuna, I had a tuna hooked and the cudda cut him in half. Yowza!Barracuda2006SRogerson1.jpg

    Hey Folks: been away recently. My dad ha been moved into home hospice with a nurse part time and us kids part time so most of my typical activities have diminished. I did bike commute today. Really chilly this AM, in the teens.

    Charlie,
    Very sorry to hear about your dad's declining health. I cannot really believe that I'm on the "otherside" of my experience with my mom in hospice.
    You all were good friends to me during that time and I still appreciate it. I'm sending my best vibes your way. Hope we see you on the 7th.

    And here's a diversion I saw over at the touring forum:

    What GB said. That's tough stuff. Good vibes your way brother and hope to see you on the 7th.

    Gave blood today after a 3 mile treadmill run and a swim, wiped out.

    I need to order some studded tires, how else am I going to get miles in? GB-you commute everyday on slicks? on ice and snow?

    I guess GB and other half is on the way to Key West. Almost any place else would be warmer than here.

    I had no problems with my commute to work. There were a few icy spots along the way.

    Carried my large backpack, so that I could bring in fresh work clothes.

    Is the Farewell Barry ride still on for Sunday?

    Just heard 20-24" of snow tomorrow into Saturday, and high of 27 on Sunday.

    AFAIK, It's still on. Do you have your studded tires, yet?

    Actually, if we keep putting it off, maybe we can delay Barry's departure... ya think?
    2009 mileage = 14,738 miles; 2010 mileage = 15,234 miles; 2011 mileage = 17,344 miles; 2012 mileage = 11,414 miles; 2013 = 12,169
