Kelley Acres Ride - 70miler

In the spirit of the holiday weekend Fast Freddie and I logged 70miles in the Cobra today. No bike riding from Kelley Acres. We headed to Taneytown, MD to catch some of our friends racing the MABRA Cyclocross Championships. It was an exceptional feeling to cruise over Harp Hill and get to enjoy the view.

We arrived at Taneytown Park to no less than 5 cars stuck in the muddy field. I happened to catch this SUV getting a tug out of the mess.
We got to heckle our friend Steve (middle) in one of the many muddy sections.
Steve- post race. FF was impressed with the pump up sprayer - car thing.
He pulled off a strong podium performance.
This is the start of the Women's Elite Race. Super Fast JMax of ATAC p/b The Bike Rack (and Kenda teammate on the road) is going after Arley from Hub Racing right from the start.

Cousin Jim showing how he can balance holding his bike. His bike is just a little dirtier than normal.
It was a great day to cruise around and hang with some friends. I'm looking forward to getting the bike back on the road next weekend.
All for now...

Back At It...

We've started up the winter training rides from "Kelley Acres"

This morning we rolled out on a quest to do "the prison loop". It was calm, sunny, and beautiful for about 10 minutes. Then it became more of an effort to stay warm for 3 more hours.
We decided to seek out some entertainment.
Frank's bike can't go by this place without stopping, even on Sunday morning.

Welcome to Funkstown. We managed to keep Heidi from doing a telephone pole dance.

In case your in the area....

Everything seemed fine at this point. Until...
The guard in the tower was not amused with this. Illana displaying some impressive flexiblity. We managed to get out of here and back on the road without getting shot.

Great day of riding with friends!

Sunset over the Fly Over! (still available~btw)
