I recommend having two bicycles of similar appearance. pic.twitter.com/5dYhC5TFjW Try to pick a bike that looks commonplace, so that it will pass as routine. It is like picking a car rental of a variety that is most often seen on the road. It gets less attention. It’s about appearances. A racing bicycle can be disguised as a common street bike, and it is less likely to be stolen.

PrettyBoy Dam - #biking #carfree #fitness #exercise #health #training #aerobic #baltimore #maryland

After all my posts about PrettyBoy Reservoir, I thought that some might like to see photos from around the dam. IMHO, many of these photos are better than the PrettyBoy Dam photos in Google Image. I recommend riding your bicycle to the reservoirs&especially the dams surrounding the city. There are likely some challenging hills. According to the new Google Maps, I logged almost 2500 ft of uphills on this trip.

Health survey gives government its first large-scale data on gay, bisexual population http://wapo.st/Wbiccw

It is worth a look. - Health survey gives government its first large-scale data on gay, bisexual population http://wapo.st/Wbiccw Lately I’ve been thinking a large fraction of the “normal weight” population are engaged in unhealthful lifestyles, that reduce their weight The CDC finding is consistent with that idea, because of the large fraction of smokers and drinkers in the gay community. A finding of “less overweight” could really be an adverse result in some communities. Using toxicity to maintain a normal weight is not healthful, a skew that is seldom taken into account. The idea is the “normal weight” population has a sufficient number of substance abusers to skew expectations.

Liberty reservoir, PrettyBoy, etc, via bicycle - #biking #carfree #aerobic #fitness #training #exercise

I recommend riding around city watershed reservoirs. Scenery is great, and usually gets you a steep uphill ride. Go a little downstream from the dam for an even more challenging ride, and maybe some swimming. The dams and bridges provide some great views. As always, be sure and obey the trail rules, if you take your bike off-road. Obey the boating and swimming rules. Protect the watershed. Most of the watershed reservoirs have some great off-road bicycling trails. The ridges make for a challenge. I like PrettyBoy Reservoir so much, it makes me want to take up bow hunting, which is legal there. Watershed protections make for a beautiful pristine environment around the reservoirs. Take the green path.  Ride your bicycle out to the reservoirs.
 

New NTSB documents provide extensive details on coal train crash that killed two women in 2012

By Kevin Rector, The Baltimore Sun

July 14 2014, 6:59 PM EDT

The August 2012 derailment of a coal train in the heart of historic Ellicott City likely began at a small break in the rail line several hundred feet from where two 19-year-old women were seated next to the tracks.

The complete article can be viewed at:

One more thing…

Ahh yea, the name of that shooting range is  Freedom Armory, Glen Rock, PA. I’m looking forward to giving it a try.

More on the ride to Glen Rock PA. - #baltimore #maryland #carfree #biking #rkba #nra #2a #training

The wheat is quite tall. I saw them harvesting on my bicycle ride.  Some will be familiar with this Northern County landmark. 

It seems to me that the tall wheat enables the harvester to cut above the other plants, reducing the need for chemical spraying. Maryland does get alot of rain, which probably helps with the tall wheat varieties.

One great thing about the trip was riding all the way to Glen Rock PA&back in one day.  I enjoy stopping at this pizza place in Shrewsbury PA, Sal’s Pizza. Terrific calzones & right on Susquehanna/York Rd.  I keep wanting to go to Pennsylvania and shoot an UZI automatic at this shooting range in Glen Rock. 

If you are looking for accommodations on the NCR trail, Glen Rock Inn is a fine place to stay. Enjoyed my stay there. I think that every program should include some shooting, mainly to experience the effect on reflexes. So, ride to Glen Rock PA, take in some good pizza and some shooting. Heaven!
 

Climb 5000 ft of hills out of Baltimore #biking #carfree

A popular choice for distance bicycling in Baltimore is Pretty Boy Reservior, but most riders turn away from Pennsylvania after crossing the reservior, and head back to Baltimore. May I suggest turning left on Middleton road, in order to take in the hilly roads in Pennsylvania. Using this route, I was able to log over 5000 ft of uphills in almost 80 miles.

Here’s the map link, and hopeful map embed.

… and some photos. The Pennsylvania border on Middleton road is quite different from what you see in areas closer to Gettysburg.

#CISA is the new #CISPA

Hi there!

Senator Dianne Feinstein’s Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act (CISA) makes it easier for private companies to share sensitive personal information with federal agencies. That’s troubling enough. But CISA also lacks any privacy or human rights protections — and it specifically fails to protect the private data of internet users outside the U.S.

Now that the bill is out of the committee it could be voted on at any moment. Join me in urging President Obama to reject CISA and any bill that attacks our basic rights online.

Some evidence that puffed grains have higher nutrient accessibility -puffed grain nutrient absorption -GoogleScholar http://bit.ly/1rmievE My current favorite is organic puffed kamut. I add some frozen berries, which should help further with the nutrient absorption. Liquid yogurt with live cultures would be a good addition, tho I prefer soy milk. I’d also recommend including wood mushrooms in the diet. 
You might have to pay a little more for wood mushrooms, but they are likely worth the extra money to get access to more healthful tannins.
