“ ’Tis the Season…”
That phrase takes on a whole new meaning in the New York Cycle Club right about now. If ever there were an official start date for “the Cycling Season” it would certainly have to be the first weekend in March.
Look at what just happened on Saturday 3/2: The A-STS had their first ride. The A-SIG had their orientation meeting and first ride. The A-Classic SIG had their orientation meeting (and their first ride on Sunday). The B-SIG had their qualification ride and orientation meeting. The C-SIG had their qualification ride.
Not even counting the numerous NYCC members who participated in CRCA’s first Central Park race of the year (which was also, you guessed it, Saturday 3/2), this Club was responsible for putting close to 500 cyclists on the road that day…~350 of whom were probably snuggled under a down comforter sipping hot cocoa at this same time a week ago!
It’s invigorating to see so many Club members out and about, as if a giant switch was thrown from Off to On: Coffee Break’s Over, Everyone Back On Your Heads.
I for one am ecstatic. Hope you are too, and that I see you all out on the road soon.
Ride your bike
