Chill laps – Prospect Park

Wednesday, September 14, 2022 06:30 AM

Take a break from hammering and join us for endurance laps in Prospect Park (Z2/Z3).

We meet at the western tip of the grassy triangle near the Grand Army Plaza entrance (see GoogleMaps below).

The first lap would be a warm-up and then gradually increase the pace until we reach A20 or A21 on flat sections for 5 laps. Those will not be speedy laps.

Pacelining skills are required. The objective is to ride safe and be predictable. We’ll speak up and use hand signals to communicate and point out obstacles, potholes, pedestrians and cyclists accordingly. Please remember that in the park, we aim to pass on the right.

If time permits, we’ll go for coffee/croissants/donuts/bagels afterwards.

  • Helmets are required 
  • Aerobars and headphones are not allowed
