The mysterious gift

In winter's chill breeze
Long yellow fruit is stripped bare
Sweet flesh brings us joy.

Early AM Update

Keeping an optimistic outlook - if it is not raining at 9:30, the ride is on. Rain before does not cancel. Ditto for expected rain after. It's a short ride, there are plenty of bail outs, and it's supposed to be a mild day. Besides, Tony's expecting us, and it just wouldn't be the same arriving by subway (although I'm sure he will post directions to do so should the need arise.)

Check back for additional posts later this morning. As always, no news is good news.

Happy New Year!

Rain, Rain Go Away!

It's 54 degrees, perfect temperature for a swim and a bike ride. Unfortunately, it's raining, pouring, actually, making for very sloppy riding. In July I might try to ride through it, but in January? So it is with deep regret that we announce an unprecedented 1-year rain delay for the 4th Annual Polar Bear Ride. The ride will It will leave from City Hall at 10:30am on January 1, 2008.

Bring spares, water, food, towel, SPF, and hangover remedy... Your mileage may vary.

Don't Miss it!!

what's so funny about peace, love & mis-fender-standing?

Marci & Peter,

Sorry to hear this. Mother Nature will help next year. If you only mentioned raingear (I have SKS on a road touring bike) we could still ride....just kidding.

Happy New Year,
