    Ugh. I've got it too. I've been producing phlegm like a factory the last week. and it's taking me too long to get rid of. I did a quick ride of the tour dem parks route yesterday. The ride felt like it was clearing the sick out of me, but as soon as I got home and warm, I started coughing again.
    Get well!

    What a chatty bunch. Nice to see some old faces that have been missing from around here lately. Hope those of you that were sick heal up.
    NR those icy pictures look frightening, especially from 2 wheels. Around here the weather was great
    Greaterb: you probably got sick riding that century w/ Barry

    Hey, Charlie!

    I was actually surprised by the fog this morning. None of the weather stations showed fog--just cloudy. I guess that they meant that the clouds were at ground level.

    The closer that I got to Towson (from Essex) the foggier it got, but I had zero problems with motor vehicles on the way to work.

    well since no one wanted to go mountain biking (i feel its unsafe to go alone, in case something happens), I did 20+ miles on the NRC trail, different than I expected, The crushed rock and puddles caught my by suprise, i was hoping it was paved. I used my commuter for this run, so I guess the new MTB will have to wait for another day.

    I'd love to hit the trails sometime. I haven't had the mtn bike out in a long time. This was just a bad week to try and duck out.

    +1 on the bad timing for leaving early today.

    Let me know if you want to get out for a road ride and I'll see what I can do. I don't mtn bike, though.

    I don't ride fast all of the time, silly.

    Maybe, we can take a trip out to Havre de Grace sometime. It's nice down by the park.

    Josh, I understand that one. My riding time has gone down the tubes with 2 kids. I haven't used my Mtn bike as one for years. I just recently put knobbies back on in the hopes of some winter trail riding but haven't made it out yet.

    And no worries, NoRacer is a great ride partner at any speed (and I am slower than you). He was nice enough to help me celebrate my B'day last year on a ride. Speaking of which, I hit 36 in 21 days...

    Time for another trip to Annapolis, but this time we'll stop and take in some of the local atmosphere.

    huh, what? And a bike ride too, cool, I'm in.

    The Bike Symposium went real well, and if I do say so myself, the presentation that I did went real well and was well received. The main issue for me was it was the presentation before lunch and a lot of people wanted to talk to me afterwards. So while I'm answering questions all the vulturous legislative aids crashed our party and swooped up all the food before I and other people could get any. That's really not right scoring a free lunch off of a non-profit especially if the particular legislator the aid works for is non-supportive of our bike bills.

    This was the presentation: http://www.tourdemparks.org/Baltimor...dCrash2006.doc (zoom to 200%)

    We had close to ten bike riders come (I was scared of thunder showers on the way home while having my computer in tow so I got a ride.) One came from just north of Baltimore City and did an out and back ride. That was cool.

    Change is definitely in the air with this administration.

    Your presentation was very interesting. I'm sure it raised a few eyebrows. I hope it helped some see how are roads and drivers are here in Maryland.
    I moved here from South Carolina in 2004 and was totally appalled by the total disregard for traffic laws and speeding. Also the almost total lack of enforcement in most areas. I have even become conditioned to it and find myself at times rolling with the crazies on Rt 50 and 495. I also live right off of Rt. 170 (Telegraph Rd. in Anne Arundel County) and know of at least four or five deaths on a small stretch of that road in the past two years involving both pedestrian and auto collision. The speed limit is 50mph there, which makes it more like 60 in a residential part of Telegraph Rd. When cycling, I have to ride Rt. 170 coming and going from my home, and I'm never really at ease on that road even with wide burms on each side in most places. I know this is only one road out of many, but how many more pedestrians, cyclists and drivers got to die before it becomes an issue worth dealing with.

    Barry,
    Great presentation at the symposium, pretty shocking numbers. I for one am in the process of lobbying for traffic calming measures on Pinehurst Rd. where I live-a speedway at times. I was encouraged by the work being done in Baltimore city, very energetic and charming young lady in charge.
    I'm glad I chose to ride down from Baltimore, just a few drops on my return to Cromwell where I caught the snail rail to Falls Rd. Beautiful little ride up through Rob E Lee park to my home, except for the traffic of course. I was moving pretty good on the B&A, though carrying heavy pannier with my clothes, shoes etc. I find the Arkel panniers though so well built to be rather heavy even when empty.
    Also, to give credit, there was another cyclist named Carl who I ran into at the northern terminus of the b&a. He cam all the way from Lutherville via lightrail and we rode to Annapolis together. On the way down in the morning I rode to Camden Yards and picked up the light rail to Cromwell, very convenient.
    Thanks Again. I'll be at the Bike Summit in DC next month, hopefully cycling down or jumping on Amtrak with the bike- so if any of you guys have issues you want raised please let me know. There a whole day where we will be lobbying and then there is a congressional bike ride on the last day.
    Harry

    bike lanes-fresh

    Hey Barry,
    As I was riding down to my studio at the Clipper Mill in Woodberry they were striping the bike lanes as I was rolling through them. Also, last night rode in a new lane from the tower on Roland north to the intersection of Coldspring. Also saw signs up indicating bike lanes, directions by bike to light rail. good stuff.

    NoRacer, DCRand is having their Sunday ride around Davidsonville. I think I may join that one.

    What about you?

    I might. I planned on cutting volume this week since next weekend is Trade Zone. I was thinking more about riding out your way from BWI on Saturday and again on Sunday just for some low stress miles on the trail.

    Hey,

    It's last minute, but I am planning on hitting this route tomorrow morning. My parents offered to take the kids for the night tonight (going to a movie with my lovely wife) and then hitting the road early tomorrow.

    I do plan on leaving pretty early tho, so I highly doubt I would get any takers. But I figured I'd throw it up anyhow.

    Definitely at my current fitness level it will be L-S-D. Emphasis on the 'S'

    -D
