"Sunday, Jan 22 - B17/65+ ""Plains of White 10.1""
Leader: Neile Weissman

Starts: 09:00 AM from 23rd Street & First Avenue
Ends: 4:00 PM at 23rd Street & Second Avenue in lower Manhattan, or a subway stop in the north Bronx, with many chances to bail sooner.

Another in an everchanging series through the Bronx and Westchester via roads less traveled by. The ride's ""structured improv"" format dictates we maintain a cohesive group at a steady pace. As is usually the case in Westchester, expect a fair assortment of hills. Bring the usual plus lunch/bail money and a Metro North bike pass.

Serious precipitation, bad roads or the failure of at least three people to RSVP by Saturday night, cancels. Check the NYCC message board Sunday morning for ride status.

RSVP: soupstone-at-mindspring-dot-com

* We'll cycle up to the Bronx and meet up with Jesse Brown and his Temperature Regulators before continuing to Westchester.
* Sunday forecast - Partly cloudy. Highs in the 40s.
* I'm happy to commit to lead, but if I KNOW there's there no contingent of willing riders (for whatever reason), I have options; other rides, spin classes, banking a work day, etc. So, if you plan to show up, RSVP.


Raymond: Dr. Eugene Sands?
Eugene: How do you know my name?
Raymond: Took an interest.
Eugene: I'm sorry, you are?
Raymond: Oh, I'm sorry. Raymond Blossom.
Eugene: You gonna hurt me?
Raymond: You asking because you're afraid or because you want me to?
Eugene: Just trying to plan my day.

The ride is ON.

We have to meet the second group in the Bronx, so we will depart promptly. Once there, I will get a consensus whether to make the ride spicy (hills) or mild (flat).

Either way, I promise it wont be boring.

Started at 9:05. Selective improvising got us to the Bronx by 10:10.

The 5BBC group appeared set for B15 pace, so we elected for a more circuitous route to the Port Chester lunch stop. The strategy succeeded -- we arrived within minutes to share some excellent seafood at Ebb Tide.

After, we combined forces for an easy tour of Rye estates before turning it up to Echo Place. There we separated again with some heading to the #6 and the rest back to the Manhattan.

Individual heroics shaking off the winter doldrums resulted in excellent group cohesion and a respectable pace.

13.5 mph. 71 miles.
