thanks to all who helped make yesterdays trail work day a huge success.
there is an important trail work day THIS Sunday. If you ride, run, hike, or gallop in the Frederick Water Shed please help the trails you love.
Last week we supported Friends of Frederick County by donating a bike for the organization to raffle off at their booth during the Great Frederick Fair.
Do you have a bicycle you no longer use? Solution – donate it! The Knights of Columbus Bishop McNamara Council 1622, in partnership with Bikes for the World, will be collecting bicycles in relative good condition and/or easily repairable condition.
This morning I meet Pat Blair, resident of Elkridge, MD. While he was here Pat told me about a 6500 mile cross country adventure he and some buddies took on their fixed gear bicycles.
Several members of our single speed clan were lucky enough to head to Aviemore, Scotland for the 2007 Single Speed World Champs.
The other day a man on a very loaded bike stopped by the shop. For the past 16 years Thomas Beasley has been riding his bike around the United States to raise money for Multiple Sclerosis.
Well folks the winner has presented herself! Today a very excited Jennifer Eberhardt of Frederick came in to pick up the Breezer Zag8 folding bike that we raffled off to promote Bike to Work Day.
It is always fun for me to talk about bicycle commuting. The benefits are many and I would encourage everyone to use a bike as basic transportation at least once. We kicked off bike month with a commuter clinic.
Being the hams that we are we can’t seem to stay out of the news! A couple of days ago we were featured on MTBR. They posted a press release about our sponsorship of the world famous one speed wonders aka The Single Speed Outlaw Factory Team.
Well kiddies I made it into the Frederick News Post today- complete with goofy grin. The article was well done and tons of fun to read so check it out!
This past Saturday was the Meals on Wheels Charity 5K Run in Baker Park. If you participated in the run or happened to be in the area, you probably saw a few cyclists cruising throughout the course. Well, if you did, it was me and some other TBE employees assisting with the run.
The other day a fellow cyclist commented on a bad experience she had with a motorist. While any road cyclist can recount a similar experience, I find that this is the exception rather than the rule.
Last night (December 11, 2006) I (taking the picture) along with Tom (arrived after I took the picture), Mike (guy on the left in the picture) and his wife, Hayley (too hungry to be in the picture) joined a group of Frederick Pedalers in support of a proposed bicycle route connecting MD144 to the east with MD40 to the west.
Tom and I both graduated from Linganore High School in 1998, in fact, that is where we met and became good friends. It wasn’t until college that Tom swept me off my feet and we began dating but that’s another story…
