Thursday, 11/24 - Nice Birdy
Leader: Neile Weissman

Starts: 9:30AM from 23rd Street & First Avenue
Ends: 3:00PM at the St. George ferry terminal in Staten Island. Optional bail halfway point via PATH from Hoboken.

A pre-TG workout. Up to and over the GWB, then south to the Bayonne Bridge followed by a ramble across Staten Island and a boat ride home.

Serious rain, or the failure of at least three people to RSVP by Wednesday night, cancels. Check the NYCC message board on Thursday morning for ride status.

RSVP: soupstone*at*mindspring*dot*com

What you askin' THEM for? They don't know nothin'.

"It's not an especially hilly route. A strong rider on a good fixed should be fine.


But since you broached the topic, I'll take the opportunity to plug the following:

Sunday, 12/4
B17/40 miles
""fixed bent tandem - freaky ride!""

Leaders: Kay Gunn, [email protected], 646-491-0859; Neile Weissman, soupstone*at*mindspring*dot*com

Starts: 10:00 AM from the NJ side of the George Washington Bridge

Show up with your beloved fixed gear, singlespeed, tandem, recumbent, tricycle, unicycle, or any other human powered wheeled machine - except a regular old geared bike!

We'll take a mostly flat route to Nyack, where we'll stop at the Runcible for snacks. Snow, ice, or heavy rain will cancel. Light rain or cold weather won't. Please check the message board if in doubt."
