Not quite cycling related, but there are efforts under way to save the Watertower.  Read more here.

Who’s up for a ride tonight? Completely low-key and completely last-minute!

At least Dan and I are meeting at the Watertower after 7pm and then pushing off at 7:30. If you plan to make it, please leave a comment. If you want my cell number, I’ll email it to you. Baltimore’s glassy, so bring a tube if you think you might need it. We usually carry patch kits, pump and levers.

And bring water! It’s gonna be hot!

We usually just ride around town for 10-15 or 15-20 miles enjoying ourselves, often getting a coffee/tea/soda somewhere.  I’m just back in the saddle after three months out, so I doubt we’re going to be counting the miles.

If you get there before 7pm, you can talk to folks from Friends of the Watertower, a group who’s trying to save our historical brick beauty.

If you’re like me, you’re wondering what the hell  all that barbed-wire fencing is doing around the Watertower, that icon of NBBB. Apparently, things are falling off of it, and no one thinks these things can blow 20 feet on their way down and land outside the fence.

Of course, it would be nice if the Watertower was repaired. How awesome would it be if it was lit up with the seasons/holidays? Purple lights for the Ravens’ season. Etc.

If you haven’t noticed the weather has been great. It’s suppose to stay this way until at least Wednesday. Highs in the 80’s and lows at night in the freakin’ 60’s. Anybody interested in going for a evening ride on Tuesday?  Same set up, same time, 8ish , Roland park watertower on the 12th of August. We could have a pot luck ride. Sound like fun? Who’s up for it?
