School of the Blessed Sacrament cafeteria

70th Street between Broadway and Columbus Avenue (north side of 70th St.) Registration/sign-in will start at 8:30 am Orientation begins promptly at 9:00 am.

The A-SIG Classic and A-19 SIG will present a joint orientation program then divide and head out to the destination of their respective first rides. Each group will stop for a late breakfast at a diner and participants will have more opportunity to talk with the leaders and to get to know each other. The orientation will take place rain or shine. If poor weather causes the ride to be cancelled, we will ride on Sunday at a meeting place and time to be determined at the orientation and posted on the NYCC web site Message Board. We will begin signing participants in at 8:30 am. When you register please let us know that you have pre-registered as this will help speed you through the process. There will be parking for the bicycles.

Here are a few reminders:

We plan to ride after the Orientation: bring your bike. Make sure your tires and tubes are in good shape and inflated to their recommended pressure. Make sure your gears and brakes are in good working order and water bottle cages are secure. We will not provide pumps or other tools at the orientation.

Wear a helmet--helmets are required on all SIG rides. Put your NAME on the FRONT AND BACK of your HELMET.


REMOVE AEROBARS before you come to a SIG ride--we will not be able to remove them or store them for you; aerobars are never permitted during A-SIG Classic rides and there are no exceptions.

Dress appropriately for the weather. We will ride for about 35 miles and it might be a good idea to bring an extra (dry) set of glove liners or an extra skull cap to change into after the breakfast stop. Classic participants may want to bring pocket food as we stop at the diner later in our ride.

Be sure to carry some cash for breakfast, a credit card for emergency use, 2 extra tubes and a patch kit, a small frame or pocket pump, and your health care/insurance ID, and your cell phone if you have one.

We look forward to seeing you this weekend!

The Leadership of the A-SIG Classic and A-19 SIG

What time over?

Approximately what time will all this finish up? Obviously depends on many factors, but what's the ballpark?

i couldn't possibly tell ya...

some years the first ride is back by 2:30, other years 4:30. the best i can say is plan to be out all day for the first ride and hope for (and be pleasantly surprised by) the best.
