Howard County Fall Farm & Art Tour Recap and THANK YOU to JRABS!

Monday, November 6, 2017

The good weather certainly helped, but we got a very good turnout for out Fall century. We heard nothing but praise for the event which was attended by around 150 riders. Many folks visited the farm and art galleries and made purchases which Nancy Avitabile picked up and brought to the start/finish.

See photos from the event on the Potomac Pedalers Facebook Page!

One of the great features of the ride was contributed by Travis of Just Riding Along Bicycle Shop. Our ride started and ended at Laytonsville Shopping Center and we had our tables set up right in front of his store. Travis and his employees went way out of their way to assist our riders before, during, and after the ride. Although his shop is usually closed on Sunday, he had one of his employees come in early to set up coffee for our riders. He was available to help any of our members with bike emergencies and even stored two bikes for our riders who had an accident and needed to leave their bikes on the road.

Just Riding Along Bicycle Shop (JRABS) has been proud to serve the Potomac Pedalers since it opened its doors in 2009. In addition to excellent bike mechanics, JRABS sells several line of bikes and even takes trade ins on your used bike. The owner, Travis Evans, has been a member of PPTC since 1985 and his father, David, was chairman in 1991 — so the Potomac Pedalers has always been his main focus. Next time you ride out of LAV please stop in and say hello.

Thank you to Travis and JRABS — some of the success of our Fall Farm & Art Tour goes to him!
