"Starts: 7:00 PM - West 39th Street Waterway Terminal
Leader: Neile Weissman (subbing for John Z.)

The plan this week is to ride to NJ Water Ferry over to Weehawken then south to Bayonne, over the Bayonne Bridge to Staten Island and finish with a bite and brews at the bike-friendly Cargos before ambling half a mile to the St. George Terminal and taking the Staten Island Ferry back to Manhattan.

Meet 7:00 PM every Wednesday for an ever-changing exploration of New York City and its environs. Depending upon the time of the year, expect a 2-3 hour nonstop ride. Required will be some sort of fat-tire bike, good handling skills and a helmet, as the route may include cobblestone, rough roads and occasional off-road -- where we can find it. Lights are also required. While not a fast paced ride, those participating should be able to maintain a 18 MPH flat speed riding a fat-tire bicycle. This is a 4-season ride and if conditions are questionable, check the message board. Post ride dinner is always an option.

Ride is on if weather permits AND three or more people RSVP by 4:00PM Wednesday afternoon - soupstone-at-mindspring-dot-com

Notes: Want to do this, as well as Wed morning’s ""The Sun Rises Too"", as tune-ups for this Saturday’s “Gunks” ride.

NWS Wednesday Night forecast:

Showers likely with a slight chance of thunderstorms. Patchy fog after midnight. Locally heavy rainfall possible. Humid with lows in the lower 70s. South winds around 10 mph...Becoming southwest. Chance of rain 60 percent.

Note: If weather threatens, I can alter the route to one that stays close to NYC mass transit.

I'm game for this ride, if weather permits. I would meet you at the Jersey side of the ferry crossing.

Too bad - I'll be away through the end of the month.
