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.
Danielle and I have a great deal to be thankful for this Thanksgiving. In addition to celebrating good health, supportive family and great friends we have reached the one year anniversary of The Bicycle Escape.
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…
This past Sunday, Tom and I went on a little “date ride” to Black Hill Regional Park in Boyds, MD (near Germantown). Neither of us had ever biked these trails before so we thought it would be fun to explore the area and take some snazzy photos for the website.
Spot Bash GauThe Guys and Gals at The Bicycle Escape are quite fond of running a bash guard in place of the big ring on our mountain bikes. Recently we documented one of the installations (on Danielle’s bike).
Well folks we’ve made it! A beer manufacture has labeled us one of America’s Best Bike Shops. We were listed in this month’s edition of Bicycling Magazine along with 20 other shops.
The IF Weekend was a blast as Danielle mentioned. Matt gave a wonderful presentation, Mamma Lucia’s kept the great food stocked, and the micro brews were cold!
You are viewing the first batch of photos from last weekend’s Independent Fabrication event where IF President, Matt Bracken, spoke on the past, present and future of the company and it’s magnificent bikes.

A few months back a customer abandoned an unwanted bike at the shop, a late 1980’s Specialized Hard Rock.
