Good advice, and spoken like someone familiar with sports and drinking in College Park, MD...



Per Augie's ride plans, I don't think I can get free on Sunday, but we'll see. Would be good to ride with y'all for a bit.

I have seen a couple as well. I actually stopped and kicked one off the road the other day. People behind me were laughing. For some reason all I can picture is my front wheel hitting one of those things and it sliding like on ice.

Damn, I miss riding. My time has been spent between work and family. Ride time has really been cut short this summer. You guys take some good pics so I can live through you all!

I am damn proud to be an alumnus of the University of Maryland and a survivor of the College Park party scene. My warning to "Fear the Turtle" was as much to protect my fellow Terps as it was to ensure your riding safety. Once a Terp, always a Terp!!!!

Family events and my work travel schedule will conspire to keep me from riding with y'all on Sunday, but I may be able to sneak over there for breakfast.
