Re: i've come to believe
I spend my winters in Maryland north of Frederick, but have a daughter and son in Baltimore. There are a few others here in Maryland, at least one other in Baltimore. If you post a thread asking for Maryland riders, you'll find somebody near you, maybe. Can't hurt to try and you might end up with a good local contact, maybe even somebody to go riding with. Welcome to the forum and good luck with your build.
Someday when I grow up I will probably lose interest in toys with wheels, but until then...
