Bear Mountain? Sounds hilly!

Mid-Late June perhaps? I'll have to check the calendar with Wifey. From what I've read about you svloid, I might be a bit freddy for your kind!

Almost anywhere north in the Hudson Valley. Nice roads around New Paltz. Also north of Newburgh around Marlboro. Another nice area if your driving the bike out there is the Great Swamp in NJ. About a 45 minute drive from midtown. You might want to pick up a Metro North bike permit, then you could just train the bike up to Westchester and Putnam counties.

As for a rack for the Forester, you might want to look into adding a trailer hitch if it doesn't have one. I did that to my Chevy Tracker. and bought a 4 bike Yakima rack that fits the hitch receiver. Much less drag than a roof rack.

Mark me present, please. I can be found riding either my hideous, green Trek dumpster diver special with hand-crafted pvc bucket fenders, or my super spiffy '67 Raleigh 3 speed.

I hustle out about 100-150miles/week, all bk paths all sorts of hours of the day so it's quite possible I seen alot of ya already. Enough about me. Thank you sir

Aeyoo, Central Park closes at midnight. Not sure when it opens in the a.m. I'd guess 5am or so. Best riding (especially in warm weather) is before 7am or after 7pm when the Park is closed to car traffic. Between those times it's pretty crowded with cars, joggers, tourists, etc, etc.

I was sitting in the park watching all the bike riders going by and I wondered how many people on this list were there also. So I got this idea. Why don't we each reply to this post with a pic or two as an attachment of what we and our bikes look like. This way we can spot (or avoid, haha) each other on our rides.

I will start, and see if this idea catches on.

Checking in from Hell's Kitchen. I did some road rides with a few of you guys a while back, but lately I've mostly been doing the commuting thing with some CP laps mixed in. My commuter getup is an orange and white bike with an orange and white bag. So far, I haven't had any close calls, surely because no one has the heart to run over a delicious creamsicle.
