    Riding in Prospect Park

    Currently I'm too lazy to go up to CP for the monday rides that people are talking about, but i live blocks from prospect and i have off all week. Anyone also around here feel like riding? maybe some sprints and stuff but I've been off my bike due to medical for a while so i am still trying to get back in business.
    I'm in prospect heights. Hopefully all these rainy day forecasts will go about the same as today's downpour that didn't exist.

    Evan-Wed night and Fri[day] sound cool, 3rd st entrance?
    Raw- 10 Pm or AM?

    The races sound cool, hopefuly I'll be able to do them soon, what are they usually like as far as distance or pace or however you would describe them? I used to club ride, but havent really done any racing, definitely not on the fixed gear, it's still pretty new.
    Got it to replace my Allez Comp Cro-Mo that some !$@# sawed in half. They didn't get any parts though, so i put them all on a new frame blah blah blah
    and I'm done.

    During the Fall the races were typically 4 lap relays with teams of two (so each person did two laps). Throughout the winter we have been doing two lap individual scratch races as no one wants to stand around waiting in the cold.

    The pace can get as fast as a 23-24 mph average.

    It's so sad that I have no idea where Prospect Park is. I think it's within 20 blocks of my house. Damn, i really need to get a life outside of my job. Before I leave NYC I will ride there at least once. Really. One of these weekends when it's actually nice out.

    Yes, it is a great park. Kinda nice that it is in Brooklyn so not too crazy when the nice weather hits, as opposed to CP.

    I am up for riding though in the meantime on my daiily beater.

    What are they doing? Why do they come here? Some kind of instinct. Memory, of what they used to do. This was an important place in their lives.

    Hey - I've been using noumena9's "lesstraffic+lesssimple" route to get out to propsect park at night and it's pretty good.

    Anyone know of a good way back from prospect to any of the lower manhattan bridges during the day? Bedford avenue to the williamsburg bridge is nice at night, but traffic and pollution make for an unhappy rider during the daytime.

    I wouldn't an extra 10 miles each way if the ride was nice.

    Vanderbilt Ave, left on Bergen St., right on Smith St (which becomes Jay St). That'll take you to the manhattan bridge.

    Thanks Yo.

    Someone said the MB path is closed? Last time I used it was about 8 weeks ago. Anyone cross the MB recently?

    ...and bike path is on the south side of the bridge, right?

    edit
    duh... I just looked at a map Manhattan and brooklyn bridges are right next to each other on the brooklyn side.

    Here's a map to your route

    I ride the MB daily and it hasn't been closed, nor was it this morning. For the Brooklyn Bridge you'd just need to make a left at Tillary St.

    North side path for bikes, south side for peds - on the manhattan bridge.
    Falling down is not exercising.
