I need a new job. I thought I was doing something by being on pace for a 1500 mile year. I guess I'm the slacker here, but I enjoy every mile I put in. I also love spending time with the wife and kids. So when I do get out I love it that much more.
GB: We gotta firm up the beer ride.
branenjs:It's quality, not quantity. You seem to have your priorities right. Kids are only kids for a short time, enjoy them.
Hows about: Sunday November, 2nd.
Meet at your place. 1st beer in Ellicott City, 2nd in B'more, 3rd @ your place.
Yep, I try to get them out as much as I can.
HC203- Yes, my oldest son(14) is in the red jersey, my younger son(12) was'nt up for the hills so he helped mom with the support truck. That ride can be grueling, we started at Front Royal and went south for about 40 miles. My son actually bonked on the climb after Thornton Gap and had to ride in the truck for awhile. His metabolism is too fast for the size of his stomach..He's a great rider though.
GB-You got that fixie together? That means I would need to bring mine, or not.
I'm heading up to SNP this weekend with two of my sons, hiking and camping not biking. We did a few miles of the AT a few weeks back and maybe we'll crank out a few more.
You can count me in for Nov 2 as well.
Maybe I'll come, that way EVERYONE can feel like Lance in comparison. I'll have to take a closer look at the calendar -- gotta be in Parkville in the early evening (showered and in non-bike clothes), but I might be able to show up late for that.
DST ends on the 2nd; so I guess that's the night you set the clocks back -- or is it 2:00 a.m. (i.e. on the "Saturday night" when you go to bed?)
You can't win until you're not afraid to lose.
Barry, Max and HC are in or maybes, great let's turn those maybes into definite. The ride is shaping up.
In Bethesda here; I frequent the Capital Crescent Trail fairly often (several times per week). I'm usually there in the early evening before dark.
English Roadsters, American Roadsters, and Balloon Tire Bicycles

Also if people are interested in helping get kids interested in biking we have two events in the city this Saturday that we are in desperate need of volunteers. I'm going to stress this one with this group: http://www.baltimorespokes.org/artic...81010200735635
Besides bicycles as part of a sustainable transportation system I think it would be really cool is we can get some cyclists to cover air quality and water quality as well (yes we have a positive impact on those things as well.) So if your up to help out and talk/inspire some kids email Brett it would be appreciated.
Or if you just want a family bike ride check this out:http://www.baltimorespokes.org/artic...81015111349782
Good wheel builder someone asked on BaltimoreSpokes about a good wheel builder in the area. Does anyone know of any? http://www.baltimorespokes.org/forum...&fromblock=yes
