My time has become consumed by a concept we call the Monocacy Crossing Trail (MCT).

This past week winter has made a reappearance here in Frederick. Saturday Danielle and some TBE groupies (Aaron and Sarah) helped to support the Garrett’s 5k Run in Baker Park. Two were on wheels and one on foot.
The Gambrill Night Ride was a bust. With the temps hovering around freezing, conditions were up in the air. The five brave souls found trails covered by virtually un-rideable slush.
