VW Passat Timing Belt change

A couple of friends helped to change the timing belt, valve cover gaskets, and a plethora of tensioners, pulleys, etc. on my 2002 VW Passat Wagon V6 AWD.

The entire front of the car has to be removed.  The project was completed Friday afterwork and Saturday morning. 

I am please to say that thanks to Simon and David the car runs great.

Bike to School Day at Parkway ES

 My Agency sponsored the 1st Annual Bike to School Day at Parkway Elementary School in Frederick, MD.  We were the only  Bike to School event in Frederick County this year.

 The Elm Street contingent rolled out shortly before 8am en masse.
 A beautiful sight upon arrival was a completely full bike rack.  I was hoping for 20 or so bikes and WOW!  Our kids and parents totally rock!
 The overflow bike parking was around back.  In all, we had 64 kids ride to school with 36 parents that's a respectable 110 folks riding bikes in town on a weekday. 

Thank-you to The Bike Doctor of Frederick, Dunkin Donuts, and Dairy Queen

- ride again soon

Bicycle Friendly Business Award

We are very proud of this.
