Re: [Bicycling-in-Baltimore] Road rides

Hi Penny et al,

I’m not opposed to faster rides, but I would appreciate some guided rides. I just moved to the city a few weeks ago, and know nothing about where to go riding around here (long or short), and would appreciate the guidance of others more experienced in such matters.

I’m averaging around 15 mph these days, and could stand go to faster, but need to get up to speed first! I live up in Hampden, and I know Falls Road out to the county seems like the way to go, but would appreciate some company!

Cheers,
Alex

Rich,

This sounds great!

If you want to lead these rides,, I can post them on the Meetup.  I would want to be certain that you can do at least mild road repair and install inner tubes for the folks that come.  Easy to teach if you don't know already.  If you are interested in leading rides with some degree of regularity, even just every few months in season, I can make you an assistant organizer.  Again, I just want to be certain you can handle minor bike issues.

People love riding the rails to trails around here.

Let me know if you want to be an assistant organizer and how confident you feel about changing tubes and the like.

Hi Penny,
My interest is in 12-14mph  mile rides from 20-50 miles .  Pretty soft  I live in Severna Park 1 block from the B&A Trail so do a whole collection of ridesthat start from there.  Downtown Annapolis, KinderFarm Park,  Saw Mill Creek Park,   circling bwi,   patapsco st park, . I hope to do a campout ride that goes from SP to the light rail, rides the train to Hunt Valley &rides the NCR trail to a campground near new freedom PA.  I would like to find others who like to do cyclecamping (when I do this I go slower yet).  My mantra is" let's see what we are riding past".

I am interested in leading such a camping ride on the c&o canal which my wife and I did on a three day outing last fall.

So I don't know if any of this qualifies as road riding.

I would like to be kept in the loop on events.

Thanks

HI all,
I have had a bad knee for about a year, so if I wasn't fast on a road bike before, I'm really not up to it now.
Let me know if you are interested in road rides, and if so, how fast.  Also, would you be wiling to lead rides?  We are missing good training rides in the group.
 
Thanks............Penny
