Frederick Bicycle Coalition (not the Eaton Football Club) is hosting a BIKE SWAP THIS SUNDAY Oct 2nd in Frederick
this is a swap meet with tables and components
while my Bicycle Swap in DC on October 1st at John Eaton Elementary School will be a USED BIKE SALE with Bike Swap potential
people will get 15 dollars credit towards the purchase of a bicycle
the logic being
a family will come with a 12 inch wheel bike too small for their child and will leave with the next size up
or a family will show up with a 20 inch wheel bike too small for their... oh... you get it?
Tips to better ride the tricky sections-DCCX clinic at Fort Reno
This Wednesday September 28th, DCMTB will be hosting its last CX clinic.
Mike Birner (USA Certified Level 2 Cycling Coach from the Sportif Coaching Group and current MABRA Masters 35+ Champion) will cover multiple aspects on how to better race your bike through the tricky technical sections of a CX course including, off camber, switchbacks, 180˚ degree turns, mud and sand.
*Instructors will be assisted by DCMTB
Wednesday clinics start promptly at 6:00 pm at the Fort Reno Park bandstand (Chesapeake St NW, between 40th ST, NW and Nebraska Ave, NW). Please arrive at least 5-10 min early to register.
All levels of riders are welcome. First timers are encouraged. All you need is a bike with knobby tires and a desire to learn. Please arrive early to register. This is a USA Cycling non-competitive event.
To offset the costs from USA Cycling, we're asking attendees with a USA
C license to pay $1 for insurance. If you don’t have a USAC annual license, the fee will be $5 for a one-day non-race license.
*** All riders under 18 years old need to be accompanied by his/her parent/guardian to sign their waiver.
Clinics and DCCX race info is at dcmtb.com
I often throw out the blanket statement "I HATE eBikes!"
I am not a fan
beyond that... I am not a fan of how people operate them
ebikes on the sidewalk?
ebikes on the bike path?
maybe it is ebike users that I am not a fan of...
these are some pretty eBikes
when the cost gets up there... I think a scooter or a motorcycle would just be more practical
Watching THE COVE
we had plenty to eat and drink around a camp fire on the beach
the dolphin paced with me at the surface
Photographer Michael Wang was killed in a hit and run in the Seattle area
a bike running into an auto dealership would do far less damage... another reason why bikes are better
had me wishing I had the camera and the time to use it
but really... the trip was a "flyby"
in and out like a teen boy on prom night
BIKE LANES IN CHICAGO
Bike Lanes... BIKE LANES SAVE LIVES!
BIKE LANES ROCK!
we need acceptance as much as we need separation
if car drivers just respected each cyclist and pedestrian with the same level of respect that they would want... well... we would have far fewer dangers on the road
car drivers see cyclists and pedestrians as obstacles rather than human beings
like it... share it... tell your friends
tell your friends about the GWADZILLA PAGE!
Joe Dombrowski back from Europe
I did not make it to Mount Pleasant Street but I knew it was Mount Pleasant Day because there was no place to park on my block
the boys had a home cooked meal instead of chicken on a stick
and as far as the activities in the main strip... the boys opted for activities in the alley
this kid from a few blocks away was loving the adventures in the alley behind our house
oh... I did not build the ramp
that ramp was designed and built by the kids!
this guy has a LEGO STACKING SYSTEM for Sorting his LEGOS
well... it sounds very time consuming
I think that there needs to be the creation of some sort of sifting device that separates pieces by size
all the small pieces would be with small pieces
all the medium pieces would be with medium pieces
larger flat pieces would be with
well... you get the basic idea
Bike Share is headed to Chicago!
these guys have a wide variety of product
I just learned of them
stoked on the crank bolts... just what the doctor orderd
now I am stoked to see all the stuff they have to offer
Origin 8 looks SOLID!
but at this point in time
I have no need for a membership in my life
my one year membership has run out
just a few days after their anniversary
CAPITAL BIKE SHARE IS AWESOME!
but I think I will just ride my own bikes
