With just a few dozen rooms left at the host hotel, time is running out to get your registrations in for the best-ever ETR/PPTC St. Michaels Spring Thaw weekend. Waiting much longer will require staying in busy Easton, over 10 miles away. Once again the weekend will show off the wonderful Eastern Shore of Maryland cycling. Meet cyclists from throughout the East Coast. Four days of riding: no hills, sparse traffic, wide shoulders. Perfect for getting back into cycling after a long winter.
Special guest Bill McCready, president of Santana Cycles in California, will make a rare stop in Maryland to meet the group on his way to Europe to direct an international tandem rally. Bill's got an exciting presentation on tandem technology, history, travel and lifestyle that's intriguing to tandemists, tandem wannabes, and even those who just enjoy traveling by bike.

I live in the area. People think the Mid West is flat. It isn't. The Eastern Shore is flat. And quite scenic. If you like quaint towns, lots of shoreline, nice restuarants (great seafood), back roads and bike lanes—you'll like this trip.
It'd be fun to join you folks, but my stoker finds she doesn't like stoking (I'm very disappointed—it was looking good there for a while). Anybody looking to buy a tandem?
