Baltimore bike bloggers (left to right): Barry, Johnny, Zack, Dan, Dave.  I feel like I should write something about the relationship between coffee and cycling, given the “You’re going for COFFEE?!” that ensued when ElRo went to get us some brews.  But I’m tired, and it’s Friday, and this weather is driving me toward the coffee itself.  I just like this picture.

I didn’t get a chance to take a lot of photos because I was enjoying meeting everyone on the plaza.  Then, as you probably know, my MFin drive-side rear spoke blew in Waverly, and I had to bail like 2 miles into the ride when my tire and frame were getting too friendly. (Only after that did I learn about those awesome fiber spokes.) My wheels have been nothing but trouble since I got my bike this summer. I have to see if the good folks at the shot can do a warranty wheel replacement for me. Anyway, here are the first half of the share-ables I do have.



ElRo has four times as many as I do, so stay tuned.

Leave a comment with your email address (no one sees it) if you’d like a PDF of this flier you can print!  This image will also be on the front of the spokecard participants will get. This was excellently and graciously created by artist and NBBB member Christina Ralls, who is available for graphics work I am told.

With the Jack Yates Memorial Ride and Tour de Greater Homewood only six days away, it’s time to call upon experienced cyclists to serve as ride leaders! What do we need ride leaders to do? Study the route and help folks along the way. That is, RIDE, and then help folks find their way. We probably all do this regularly, but now it might be dozens of people asking for your help.

This is a link to the route on Google Maps (CLICK!) if you’d curious about the venue. It amounts to about 14.5 miles all told. There will be a shorter (@4-5 miles) ride that we also need a volunteer or two to lead.

We could also use help with registration (getting waivers signed; handing out spokecards; collecting donations). You’d still get to ride; you just might be behind everyone else.

We have two ride leaders and two volunteers for registration.  We need more!  If you’d like to help out, please leave a comment — or email us (northbaltimorebikebrigadeATyahooDOTcom).

Stay tuned to more ride details.
