    Details (RL read field instructions carefully): 

    Join me on a NYC ride that features:

    Roosevelt Island
    Central Park
    Wards Island
    NYC Ferry to Wall Street
    Battery Park
    Brooklyn Bridge
    Brooklyn Piers
    Manhattan Bridge
    Williamsburg Bridge
    Gantry State Park

    The route is about 35 miles with about 900 ft of elevation. It also includes a ferry ride down the East River from 90th Street to Wall Street. A 35 mile city ride plus a ferry segment and stops for sightseeing and photos can be a longer day than you might expect. I hope to be back at the cars by 3pm.

    Bring snacks and gels. There will be a food stop somewhere along the way. Here's links to the most likely routes:

    Obviously… not your typical "club ride". This will be much more of a "tour ride". I'm very selective about the roads/paths I choose. Many will have a designated bike lane... a few might not. If you have a fear of heights, bridges could be an issue, but we take them very slow.

    This is a B+ ride ... not so much for the speed, but for the hills (+ bridges) and general confident bike handling skills required to navigate a variety of advanced cycling situations. This is also an RSVP ride... and because of the limited space for bicycles on the ferry, I may limit the ride to a group of six people maximum.

    Contact me (text) in advance if you plan to come. Provide me with your SBRA Member # and I'll sign you in. The ride will be a "go" even if only one other rider is interested.

    Please note the new ride-start location for this year. If you need an address for your GPS, then use 42-25 Vernon Blvd, Queens, NY 11101
