    Hi I’m Calvin. Funny coincidence, but my friend Bryan introduced me to Freezing Saddles, and he just told me we are both on Team Six.

    I like “bicicles” for the team name!

    I’m a daily commuter and have been so, well, basically my entire life. Except the three years I lived in Manhattan that is. I do anything from 125 mi to 250 mi a week. I come down the CCT daily from Bethesda, but often add some laps at Hains Point or maybe Great Falls going home.

    I’ve done RAGBRAI too, five times, and last summer did “Ride the Rockies” in Colorado. Their hills are bigger than those in Iowa!

    Funny fact: Bryan and I met while drafting together on the Seagull Century, and realized in November we are both in barbershop quartets. In fact he sings with my old singing group. If there is a tenor and baritone on our team, we can sing something for you!

    Default Flaming Cyclepaths?

    Hi everyone,

    My name is Caroline. I live in College Park and commute around PG county (by bicycle when it's safe!). I generally ride my bike every day, and like to go out for longer rides when I have the time. This is my first year officially doing BAFS. I was a frequent interloper on several group rides last year.

    I finished up my dissertation at UMD in May, and am continuing my teaching gigs while riding the collegiate job search limbo bus.

    I am up for weekend expeditions, and occasional longer rides in the week, schedule depending.

    For some reason, I keep thinking of Flaming Dirigibles. Not that a dirigible has anything to do with biking.
    But Cyclepaths has a nice ring to it. Perhaps Flaming Cyclepaths OR Team 6: The Cyclepaths?

    Looking forward to group rides- perhaps something over MLK weekend?

    Caroline

    Cool weekend ride

    Hey guys,

    The weather is probably going to be good on Saturday and I would be interested in a group ride. Someone suggested the Proteus ride and that would be fine if there is a group that will be willing to go further. Feel like I need to get some miles in. Been a while. But can also do that Sunday or Monday if need be.

    Other options. There is also a 50 mile ride I do out Silver Spring that I made up years ago but don't have a cue sheet. It's basically Sligo over to Rock Creek over to Montgomery Mall over to Tuckerman to Seven Locks to Wooten to Glen Mill to Glen then rest stop at Travilah market and then Querry Mill to Seneca Rd to River and through Potomac to meet up with Democracy and then Rock Creek and back. It's not exactly the Ag preserve. Mostly residential areas with some traffic. But it has the virtue of starting from Silver Spring.

    And there is a Pedalers ride that often goes out of Wooten High School on Saturday. It's 40-50 ride to the Poolesville area. Overlapping with ride I made up but it goes out further because it starts at Wooten.

    A third option is a ride I have done where you go from Silver Spring to downtown to Mt Vernon trail to the new Wilson bridge and then back up the other side of the river through the farm park, through the Anacostia trail, cross over by the stadium and then up to DC. Forget how many miles that is.

    Glad to consider other options.

    - Lee

    I'm planning on an early morning ride tomorrow, I have to be back by noon. But I wouldn't mind meeting up with team folks somewhere for a piece of a group ride. I think I might do a big loop going up Beach, then Forest Glen, Sligo to Kemp Mill, Randolph, Fairland, then loop down through Beltsville, stop at Proteus to say hi, follow them down, then take the ART back to DC, then up the CCT and back home. That leaves plenty of meeting spots for the SS folks as well as CP folks. If we set up a facebook group, I can send out group message to coordinate.

    I'm interested. Let me know what time you are thinking of kicking things off and where it might make sense to meet up.

    This route is close to what I was planning on doing, it's approximately a 50 mile loop.

    I'd be willing to detour into Silver Spring or just meet somewhere along Sligo, if someone wanted to join me.
