Sunday was gorgeous! - August 4, 2008, 05:59 AM

For those of you that didnt ride on sunday, for shame! The weather was beautiful.

I tried a new addition to my little columbia route. I was impressed i hit all the roads i wanted first time through after trying to memorize the roads.

Included new cut road/thistle back down to 103 to rt 1 south, to gorman road.

Participants included old roommate, and our friend that moved here from Texas. He got in last monday. He's new to riding, but his response was: "wow, that was the most turns ive ever seen! and we dont have hills in texas!"

Pretty much his first ride with turns, he mostly commuted to and from work before. He did great at not trying to go fast and riding his own ride. It was a slow pace anyways as i was leading and exploring the new roads.

Good times with good friends.

PS: getting onto Thistle from 144 is scary.


I believe i can see the future;
because everyday i repeat the
same routine.

Be careful on thistle. There is a semi blind corner that runs into a stop sign with no warning. Thistle also had some low quality pavement. New cut was nicer, but once thistle turns into another name (i forget what it's called) there are a couple nice sweepers.

yeah I went out on Sunday too for about an hour or so... shot out the Glenalg (sp?) way and hit those back roads where some of the new $1million dollar homes are being built. It was a great day for riding.

I must admit though I went "squid" for the first time ever - rocked shorts and a t-shirt (cutoff sleaves even LOL!) - I know I was wrong for that but it felt good -- I can see how people can get to used to riding without their gear.... until its too late...

Anyways im right off of Snowden River/Oakland Mills, hit me up sometime- always looking for some folks to ride with around the local area.... get tired of the hustle-and-bustle of the of the highways.

River road isn't bad there either. You can make a circuit by coming in on new cut, right on college for that crazy hill, then thistle, 144, hilltop back down to thistle, then head up river road. Repeat as necessary.

j/k. I dunno why you'd have choosen yesterday as your 1st day to squid, considering it was so cool out and not humid! I was rocking leather jacket and mesh overpants on top of jeans. Pretty much my standard fare for riding unless it's to/from my columbia office (3.5miles). In which case, i just drop the overpants. I feel naked if i ride my bike from 1 parking space to another w/no gear.

Think we used to chat in SB awhile back. My old username was darksidesw20. I tend not ride with others too much unless i know them - i feel my pace will be too slow and bore others. But i'm down someday if you dont mind a slower, shortish ride.

OSD, that was my first time up there since we mentioned those roads in another thread. I can only remember so many road names/directions at a time. I'll continually try to expand it as i run it.

Definately remember you as DarkSide. You and your wife was sharing a bike at the time... until you picked up another one... I'm assuming you have two bikes now? I ain't a balls-to-wall rider myself.

Yeah Husker, we picked up a 2nd bike. I'll shoot you a pm next time i go "riding." The route i ran yesterday was a few turns in columbia, then leading up to newcut.. could probably slice some time off the route if i hopped back onto 29 to hit 108. I live near the mall and work on brokenland near stevensforest rd.

#452, we ended at my place and caged it to red robbins for dinner.

I'm torn ... I'm going up Friday so it would be nice, buuut I'm sure I'll be in no condition what so ever to ride home after I win the Bocce tournament Saturday. So I'll probably cage it. Unless I sell the cage this week haha.

Have to talk to Cory - see when he needs me to help set up. Might be able to get some riding in before or after I'll let you know.

If I don't ride, you can take your wife's bike and I'll ride the Daytona - that work? hahahahaha
