Hi Bike Forums,
I'm the ride director for the NYC Century Bike Tour, which will be on Sept. 10th this year. It's a great ride with 5 route options, perfect for cyclists of many ability levels. If you all are interested please check out www.NYCCentury.org. We're also holding free training rides throughout the summer. If you're in the area please join us!
All rides will start and finish at Spokes and Strings bike shop in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Enjoy a morning ride along Riverside Drive up to the Cloisters, a trip to the Far Rockaways, or explore the Bronx greenways on the way to Orchard Beach. All rides will begin with a brief orientation about group riding, safety, and basic cycling etiquette. These rides will roll at a medium pace (12-15 mph) and are ideal for beginner to intermediate cyclists. Flat to rolling terrain. Please bring a spare tube and a pump, some pocket money, a Metrocard in case of emergency, snacks and plenty of water. We will provide turnsheets and an experienced ride leader.
