NYC folks, there is a train leaving from grand central station at 9:07am that gets in to bridgeport at 10:27am - I think you need a bike permit to take your ride on the train. The fare is $22-$29 r/t depending on whether or not it is peak hours.

Grand Central Bridgeport Travel Time Transfer Peak fare
8:32AM 9:58AM 86 THROUGH TRAIN Y
9:07AM 10:27AM 80 THROUGH TRAIN N
10:07AM 11:27AM 80 THROUGH TRAIN N

Sounds like fun... I hope I can make it but not sure at the moment.

Benefit Race in Conjunction with Velocity Tour Chicago!

After the events on Saturday in Northbrook, come down to Chicago for this race! The finish line is at the Velocity Tour Goldsprints! Come out! It's a benefit for Bobcat, a very injured messenger!

NYC - race & ride this weekend!...

SATURDAY - CONEY ISLAND OR BUST
Join us on Saturday August 5th for a mad dash to the beach! There are going to be tons of prizes! Coney Island or Bust! is brought to you by: Trackstar, The Onion, Phil Wood. R.E.Load, Velocity, Euro-Asia Imports, randL wallets, Crumpler, Visitor Design, and Base Brooklyn.

Sat Aug 5. Registration: 4:00, Race Time: 5:00. Entry: $5
@ 43rd and 1st Ave
www.trackstarnyc.com


SUNDAY - A hundred miles, a single gear: Tour des Barrens
A century for fixed-gear and single-speed cyclists. If you've never had the pleasure of riding 100 miles without bothering to shift, here's your chance. The route (courtesy John Zenkus) is almost entirely flat, so you won't miss that derailleur. Bring two water bottles, spare tubes, helmet, pocket food, and cash. Ferry leaves at 8:00am; cost is a $39 (for RT fare + bike charge).

Sunday August 6 at 07:40 AM
@ Seastreak Ferry terminal: E. 34th St. and East River
Leaders:

The average pace on the flats (which is most of the route) is 19mph, with minimal breaks. Hammerheads are welcome to buzz ahead. I'm always slower than advertised. It's possible to shorten the ride, though I haven't scouted those roads. If interested or any questions, give me a call. The ferry ride is a pricey $39, but it's still cheaper than the TA century, with fewer stoplights, and you can buy beer on the return trip.

NYC ride Sunday August 20th
http://www.times-up.org/calendar/det...calendarid=987

Where?
Staten Island, but meet at Staten Island Ferry terminal in Manhattan
(1 Whitehall Street at South Street in Lower Manhattan)

When?
Meet time: 10:45am’ish
Ride/ferry leaves on time @11:00am

In addition to info posted on the times-up site, I’ll add this (as the person leading the ride):

From the ferry to the beach is about ~15 miles through mostly bike friendly roads, most of it is flat,
however there are some unavoidable hills thrown in the mix, but you guys are healthy...I think, nothing
too crazy! The return trip back to the ferry is about 5 miles (less scenic route)

Unless you’re a macho guy, I suggest you have at least one bottle of water with you, there are a few
stores along the way, so we’ll make stops if need be, but a man prepared, is a man less dead...I don’t
know what that means exactly, but I like the sound of it

It’s also probably best to bring your own lunch to be enjoyed at the beach, but if you travel lite there’s
a pizza shop and a deli or two a few blocks away from the beach site.

The time scheduled for this ride says 11:00, but I suggest you aim to get to the Staten Island Ferry
station at 10:45 since the ferry we’re catching leaves at exactly 11:00am.

Peace
