Greencastle Great Escape: 2016 Edition
The second annual Greencastle Great Escape drew a 50 percent increase in registered riders over the previous year, with many new faces among the participants. At first it looked like the weather was going to put a damper on our riding, but – once again – we managed to dodge the bullet and enjoyed three glorious days of cycling in south central Pennsylvania's beautiful Cumberland Valley. Read more about the riding, food, and fun in Phil Manger's article.
2016 Kent County Spring Fling
BBC's Kent County Spring Flight (KCSF) was a great success. The weather was beautiful and even the rain predicted for Monday held off. A highlight is that Frank and Kathy Anders who ran KCSF for ten years participated in 2016. See photos of cyclists at the Washington College Campus. We are looking forward to an even better event in 2017.
Beware of Hogweed!
Tis the season for roadside stops, but be aware of the vegetation alongside the road. The plant pictured here in this photo from the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation is known as giant hogweed, and it can cause a rash worse than poison ivy. BBC member Lydia Cunningham shares her experiences with it in this article. If you’ve seen giant hogweed in Maryland, please contact the Plant Protection and Weed Management Section of the Maryland Department of Agriculture at (410) 841-5920
2016 BBC Spring Social
A fun, relaxing, and just plain enjoyable time was had by the hundred (or so) folks who attended the club Social on Saturday, March 12, at the Cockeysville Volunteer Fire Company. Many people helped to make the evening a resounding success, to include Jane and John Cole, Cindy Wyatt, Russ Loy, Marty Zemmel, Steve Zeldin, Bill Wiesand, Gene Young, Mary Ryan, and Renee Rees.

BBC 2015 Annual Awards Celebration
The Annual Awards Event was held at Oregon Ridge Lodge on November 21, 2015. This event honors our dedicated volunteers who make the BBC the great club it is. The ambiance of a cozy fire in a rustic ski lodge, combined with a delicious dinner, added a festive touch to the evening. Please see the Awards Program for names of recognized club members, and don't miss the photos of the celebration captured by Gloria Epstein.
Rolling Along with Team BBC

A BBC Autumn Adventure
A clear, crisp, autumn morning found a group of happy cyclists in Hagerstown, MD, at Gordon’s, a rustic country store, founded in 1923 and still family-run. Participants of Rich Burns’ Washington County Getaway enjoyed this “gem” and many more as part of this year’s weekend event (Oct. 9-11th). Read the article for more details.
