IT WON'T BE LONG NOW!! The BALTIMORE BICYCLING CLUB'S Instructional Ride Series will begin with an orientation to be held on Sunday, April 29, 2007 at 10:30 a.m. at the Dumbarton Middle School in Baltimore County. Directions to the school are provided below.

This series is offered to anyone over 16 years of age interested in learning basic cycling skills, including doing minor road repairs and improving as a cyclist. We want to help new riders find a comfortable riding level and develop so they can at least ride on the BBC casual rides by the end of the series. We also want to give experienced riders who are new to club riding the opportunity to meet and learn about group riding. The ride series will include at least one NCR (North Central Railroad) trail ride.

The orientation will include a short cycling safety video. We will discuss bicycles, equipment and clothing and answer questions about the program. If you bring your bicycle to the orientation, we can check it out for you and show you how to do a quick pre-ride bike check. The indoor orientation will be held RAIN OR SHINE. Weather permitting, anyone who wants to do so can join us on a short ride following the orientation. You must have and wear a helmet in order to ride. The full ride schedule is listed below.

DIRECTIONS: Dumbarton Middle School is located at 300 Dumbarton Road, 0.2 miles west of York Road, approximately 1.5 miles south of the roundabout or traffic circle in Towson. Contact Howard or Gordon at the email addresses or telephones numbers below for more complete directions.
