Tomorrow presents the kind of weather we have been waiting for to hold this ride! A nice, warm summer evening ride to City Island for a seafood dinner. Our pace will be a leisurely 17-18 MPH and while fat-tired bicycles are traditionally required for our rides, we won't be going off-road or riding on any particularly nasty urban roads, so this ride is open all bikes in good repair.

Please note return will be via Subway.

Thanks to Neile and his unparalleled knowledge of the Bronx, I saw sights I have never seen before or expected. While City Island was stunning, especially with a full moon rising over Long Island Sound, I was most fascinated with Clason and Castle Hill points -- a bit of tidewater Virginia right here in NYC.


Ron recorded the entire ride using a bar mounted cam with surprisingly good results. Blog next?

Next week we are making a pilgrimage to Iron Bound, before this unique region is lost to the Mets.

Neile seems strangely drawn to those yellow diamonds.

Nice ride - It was very interesting watching the ride on video when it is in fast forward mode. Overall the results were pretty good even in the dark. I'll make a DVD for those interested.

Yeah, they're mostly a waste of time, but occasionally you find a real gem.
