The 17th annual Eat-a-Peach ride is August 10. If you haven’t done this ride, it’s one you should try. There are three distances, 33, 67, and 100 miles and it starts at the Ag center in Westminster. Very challenging ride that goes to a great cause. The proceeds go to support the Brain Injury Association of Maryland. See the link below for registration.
Hello! My name is Dylan and I work at the Midshore Riverkeeper Concervancy in Easton, Maryland.
I have been working on promoting our annual century ride through Talbot County and have been able to submit it as an event to a few Bike Clubs online, however I don’t see a place to submit events on your website and was wondering if your could help us promote our ride by putting it on your events calender so some of your riders can have a chance to check it out and hopefully come out and ride! The event is on Saturday, September 21st and will begin at 7:30 for the 100 mi. and 100km and at 9:30 for the 20 mile ride, starting and finishing at the MEBA Engineering school just outside of Easton. By participating in the ride, people can support clean water on the midshore and in the Bay, as-well as enjoy a nice ride out on the shore. The website to register at is www.tourdetalbot.org Please let me know if there is any more information you need or if there is actually a place on your website to submit this!
Thanks so much for your help,
I wanted to share with the APL Cycling club that we will be hosting the 2nd Annual Firefighter 50 in Westminster Maryland on Sunday 28 July 2013. The ride features some beautiful, low-traffic Carroll and Frederick County roads with 30 & 50 mile road loops and a 30 mile mixed dirt/paved loop (great for cyclocross bikes). All proceeds benefit the Pleasant Valley Fire Company and they put on a really great lunch after the ride.

M55’s Terminus is an imposing, uncanny $35,000 contraption which looks and works unlike any bike I’ve ever seen. It’s heavier, too, at 65 pounds, which is offset by the output of an electric motor built into its CNC-milled aluminum frame. Engine power is mashed with your pedaling via a system of sprockets and chains which connect to the crankset. The motor is powered by lithium-ion cells which give it a range of 62 miles.
The mayor of Vilnius, Lithuania was so upset with luxury cars parking in the city’s bicycle lanes he held a demonstration to express his displeasure — using a troop carrier to crush a junked Mercedes W140, just like the Soviets used to.
Mayor Arturas Zuokas said he learned how to drive the Soviet BTR to send a message: “I want to point that if you have a car and more money (it) does not mean that you can park it everywhere,” he said. How very un-American.
