75 miles on a fixed gear? you guys are hard core! love it!

Can you describe the 7/10 ride? Distance, etc. (the longer the better - hey, we get to use gears!) Sounds interesting - is there a special occasion? fund-raiser? I know you said more info to come -- but a wee bit more at this point would be helpful, even what the ideal yet-to-be-confirmed ride might be. --

We've set a date for a Vintage/Bobish ride in Parkton, Maryland, north of Baltimore for Saturday, July 10. It's got some hills, but the scenery makes it all worth it. The Tour will be on TV, there'll be food and drink. Put it on your calendars if you'd like to join us. More info when we get closer to the date.

I'd also like to do a long vintage/fixed gear ride between Baltimore and Annapolis on Friday, June 18, two weeks after Cirque and during the week to avoid traffic and to allow a visit to the Velo Orange showroom, open only until 4 p.m. Monday through Friday. We did it last year on short notice and several people expressed interest who couldn't make it.

The ride starts on the Southwest side of Baltimore, goes through Patapsco State Park, along back roads to the Baltimore/Washington Airport loop and B&A trails (both paved auto free paths) and into Annapolis for lunch at the town dock.

Including the trip to Velo Orange, the total route is almost 75 miles, but is almost all gentle grades. I figure folks should have their distance legs by then. A couple people rode a shortened version of the ride last year starting closer to Annapolis. It's a great ride and I hope more folks can join us this year. Please contact me off list if you think you can join us.

Happy trails,

Dan Artley in Parkton, Maryland
