Climbing to New Cannan Ride /Recommendation and Thanks

Hi All, I must say that the Climbing to New Cannan bike ride was glorious.. Excellent day out and challenging. Rolling hills and no heavy traffic anywhere .. You should see the opulent properties that go on and on and on .. The ride was led by an excellent leader who obviously does know the area better than anyone.. His love of this ride and sharing it was also very apparent. Most enjoyable day ..The only problem is that I after such a great day of fast riding, I am exhausted but happily so.. Consensus from myself and Joe.:-) There was five of us, all about same speed (I was challenged however) but we had a grand day ..very special. I compare this ride to the Blooming Metric but without the highway parts and the ride also allowed us to see a way of life that is beyond my life time (Greenisch backwoods).

How is Ann?

I am sure we are all wondering how Ann is doing after her fall. Wishing her a speedy recovery!

recovering...thx for your wishes

Hi NYCC CT Riders,
Thanks for the get well card, I'm recovering slowly from my accident in CT on 9/11. (fractured elbow!!) It's not fun, but I feel positive that I'll gain back the mobility in my arm.
