Parkway TT

So, recently there was some hype about possibly doing an underground event in Crofton. And why not? Everyone knows Crofton is filled with the most bicycle friendly, caring, interested, noble people on the face of the planet.

I've also got a bridge to sell you.

But none the less, we want to put on a show. And given we have the perfect loop for a TT I say we do it. Two weeks ago I did my fastest lap ever, 8:17. The outer loop is 3.42 miles around; thats 24.94 mph. I say one day for a shop ride we all warm up, the rip around the PWY hells bells.

If you are a rider and aren't motivated by that then here's this: (otherwise skip down)

If you cant beat MY time YOU SUCK!

So let me know what you think, or stop in. We could have trophys, and swag and a band......and......

I'm really pumped for March.

Champion of Cyclocross, and Winter Snow.

I'm considering this the first post on this blog, on account the last one was in May-

My name is Thomas Mackay, I am a senior at South River High School and a wrench here at Family Bike Shop.

I wind up riding mostly everything. I have 4 bikes and Ive raced cross, mtb and road. Now for the usual jabber you might expect from a normal post.

Pictures right are a few medals I won the weekend after Thanksgiving. The one on the left is the MABRA championship medal, and the one on the right is the State Championship medal. Both are for U19 cat2/3/4 junior cyclocross.

Despite this I remain optimistic for the upcoming road season. For now though I'm enjoying the holidays.

Some other major developments recently Include me Joining ABRT.
