Josh,

I've got your PB Superflash. I think you may have saved a life (literally) by giving it to Pat.
I can put it in a mailer and send it to you. Or if you're in either Hampden area of B'more city or Owings Mills you can pick it up.

And here a link to my photos.

I'm glad to have done the ride. No need for a full report as Isaius has that covered. I will admit to not being completely enamored with it the whole time, lots of traffic lights, stop signs, etc. but that's urban riding, and maybe it would have been a bit more pleasant if slightly warmer and less windy conditions. But hey, I have to fight the puss factor whenever it creeps up on me, like the momentary idea of taking the lightrail home. I was shaking when we came out of whatever bar that was that we were in where we weren't watching football. Hey Isaius and Barry, let's go, hypothermia is kicking in. Spinning up Charles I hear Barry say "You're killing me" and I said you must be kidding. I don't know where he went going east on 33rd, maybe to do a few laps at Montebello.
Good to ride with you all. What's next?

Isaius-Thanks again for the brew an grub, owe you one.

What's with that ridiculous expression on my face in the coffee shop?

balto charlie 11-17-08 01:41 PM

Sounds like a great ride guys. Wish I could have made it. Perhaps next time.....in the depths of winter:winter2:

I'm already on it.

This is a fun one. Very few lights/stops. Nicely protected for a good winter ride.
The idea is to ride the entire NCR trail, but at no more than 10 miles at a stretch.

Here's what I've got:

Still very much under construction though.

Thought you guys may be interested in this and will help explain what I do. A couple illustrations for Bicycling Magazine from a few months back. Not sure if you get that mag. I think they send it to me for free. The shadow three image is about falling into the rut of training in only zone 3, and how that will just sap your enthusiasm. The article talks about pushing into 4 and even going down to 1. The other one is on learning how to ride in the pack, something I need to work on.

Sign me up. I rode the 80m round trip last March for my birthday run, new ritual, though not sure I would do the whole trail again, boring. Have ridden that 80 three times total. Your concept for breaking up the monotony is brilliant. Only December day that I know I can't do it is Dec, 6th as that will probably be when we celebrate my son's birthday.

Garmin Etrex Vista, I really like it.

I also want to say I had a blast Sunday, it was fun meeting you and riding with you.

Barry, that's the gps I've got. I'm going to have to ask you about maps and such, which ones you added to the unit since it comes with just that base map.

I'm also on a Mac and Garmin seems to be lagging with Mac friendly interface.

How do you feel the elevation does? Mine has been all over the map. I used it in Death Vally and it was to the exact foot of the pass I climbed, but in dense foliage it loses reception.

I'm glad I was able to help him out.

Thank you,hang onto it, I'm sure we'll catch up at some point. If Isasis sees you before I do you can always give to him.

Anyone know anything about the garmin 305? can I upload routes to it and have it guide me?, if not I guess I'll just have to get a garmin 705 :thumb:

side note: Noracer, I saw you on Rt40 today, I saw the light and was thinking whats that motorcycle doing in the shoulder? sure enough it was you and the death star, super bright in the daylight.(4pm)

Probably due to the disgust over the leaking coffee cups. You had one, I had one, and others in the shop had them as there were many people sipping from a cup within a cup.

The wind was outrageous around the Washington Monument. I placed my bike with mounted iBike along side of the building had a peak wind speed of 27 MPH with the bike not moving.

Yup... that was me all right. lol @ motorcycle :roflmao2:

It probably looked like I didn't even get out of the kit I had on yesterday, 'cuz I wore the same stuff--washed, of course.

Thinking about a post Thanksgiving ride, Friday, day after Thanksgiving. I'm going to need to do some calorie burn. Not sure how long, guess that depends on the temps. Probably look for a ride on Sat and or Sunday as well.

I'm good for something maybe saturday after thanksgiving but if I can get a sitter the wife and I will go out.
Sunday would be good as long as I'm not out as long as this time. I'm good for a ride as long as I can be back by 200pm, a 7am start would give us about 7 hours total, doesn't have to be 100 mile, the Pa ride me and noracer did was good, mostly county roads.

I'm thinking more like 50-60 miles, each day. Maybe just one of the BBC routes out of O Ridge. There are some BBC rides over the weekend out of Taneytown, too far of a ride start for me.

Daniel, what's going on with you? How come you haven't been riding to the point that dust is gathering on your bike?

Why don't you come on out for some of these rides, dude?

friggin' cold commute this morn. I was freaking out thinking all of the wet road surfaces would be black ice. Not the case, just bridges and overpasses. Mother earth hasn't yield it's warmth, thankfully.
Harry: you drew those for bike mag, cool. I thought you were talking about riding in zone 3 all of the time. I was going to say....then don't ride so fast. Now your post makes sense.
leaking cups...sometimes young folks(for fun) stick a pin through cups at serve your own beverage places, sit back and watch peoples faces(Bobs) that have leaking cups. I guess they are bored. They need to ride.

GB-Yes I know the work of Seth, quite talented. We're both represented (agent) by the same group in NY. rappart.com.

He does editorial work like me in addition to his comic/graphic novel stuff.

Egahhhdds, I actually went to a spin class this morning at Meadowbrook. I don't commute but sixty feet to my garage so I gotta make up for what you guys do. It's actually a good workout, but short 45 minutes, I rounded to an hour. Running program this evening at 6, will be cold.
