Why would we want to do the ride, bonk, then race?

How fast are you? If I can keep up, I might need a partner since my current partner's bike is in about 2000 pieces.

Maybe it wasn't a total bonk for me. My calves cramped up making very difficult to mash up the hills and spin down the hills.

Thanks marcelinyc for reminding me that i suck!

From Columbus circle to the start is 20 miles, if you riding in from Brooklyn you gonna be getting in 25-30 miles before the race starts...just so you know for the low mileage peeps.

We have to go through the palisades and climb up to alpine instead of taking 9W going to nyack so we can make sure he bonks again, otherwise there are no guarantees.

isn't it more like 26 miles from c circle to nyack?

i've been wondering if the triboro is a better way into queens than the qnsboro for this race.

the one and only time I took the triboro from queens to the bronx I had to walk up two seperate flights of stairs and walk down two more. It totally sucks, unless there's some other secret bridge to try. Taking the car path on the triboro will probably get you dead or arrested.

Sandbagging already? Everyone watch out for his HID. He'll probably mount it on his seatpost and try to blind everyone into riding into traffic.

Well as you know, I spent all summer moving into and setting up my apt, so naturally, I'm out of shape.

BTW: The triboro bridge is about 2 hairs wide, usually not too much of a problem if you're not going fast, but there are a lot of stair cases. Queens boro takes you straight into queens.

How about a late night ride? Go up there for dinner, head back at 9pm.
9W is very nice at night.
