Schooley Mill Cross is just around the corner and we invite you all to join us and Team BBC for this great event. For those interested in racing, the course is like no other found in the Mid-Atlantic.This equestrian facility offers impeccable spectating as riders race across a large and varied course. It’s known as a high speed course and this year will not disappoint. But be prepared to show off those barrier skills in front of the beer tent!
Spectators can enjoy a tasty beverage and watch the action on nearly half of the course! Bring your chair and your ID and stay around to watch the elite men fly through the barriers! We’ve got a playground right next to the course so the little ones will have something to do between Little Belgian races. Top it off with food and coffee from local vendors and some of the best facilities any cross venue has to offer (did we mention heated bathrooms).
Ever been curious about trying this whole cyclocross thing? Got a bike that whispers to you at night about how it yearns to be ridden in mud? Just want to learn to jump off your bike while it’s moving to impress your co-workers as you roll in Monday morning?
Join the ladies of Team BBC for a morning of skills, drills, & hot laps. The first part will be clinic-style, covering some CX basics in the baseball field at 29th and Sisson, then we’ll spend the rest of our morning riding the infamous [Helen] Wyman Park loop, with focus on the different technical pieces commonly found in cross courses. Our hope is you ladies will ride away with increased confidence, and maybe try your first race.
Details and RSVP on the Facebook event page.
Join the Friends of the Mill Corridor Friday, October 10th 6 to 8pm at Union Mill (1500 Union Ave) to discuss how you can clean up this the Jones Falls. The EPA is funding community clean up efforts in this precious watershed. Join environmental scientists and advocates from the University of Baltimore, the Institute of Marine and Environmental Technology, and Blue Water Baltimore to learn about opportunities for City residents to be involved. The Friends are looking for community partners to help create:
- A community adopt a stream program for the Jones Falls that runs along Falls Road and Clipper Mill Road
- Education and outreach programs to engage our young citizens
- A pollution monitoring program to help track pollution and contaminants that entering the stream
- Sustained spruce up efforts
We are so excited to be honored once again with the City Paper’s Best of Baltimore award. We would like to thank all of our loyal customers and the editors at City Paper for your continued support and for this great recognition. We only hope to continue to live up to the high standards that are the Best of Baltimore. Thanks again!
