    NYC riders - Tour de Bronx, Sunday Oct. 22

    Anyone doing this ride on their SS or FG? Apparently, they get a few thousand riders every year, so should be a blast. I'm planning on doing the 40-mile route starting from Bronx County Building at 161 Street & The Grand Concourse (10am check-in). I'll either take the subway or ride up from Central Park if others want to ride up.

    The price is right - registration for the ride is free, as are lunch and snacks.

    I might do it. Just trying to decide on a start point.

    Well, if you're coming from Manhattan or Brooklyn, the County building is closest.

    Did you do the NYC Century several weeks ago? I remember riding part of it with a guy on a blue IRO.

    edit: Nevermind, I saw your bike pic, different bike.

    I'm thinking of doing it. Maybe we should form a "fixed group of fun", bring booze.

    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.

    Anyone interested in meeting up at Central Park and riding up to the County Building start?

    Are the folks coming up from Brooklyn passing near Central Park?

    Engineer's Gate - on the loop at 5th Ave/90th St. entrance, is a pretty good meet-up point. From there ride up to the north end of the park and out.

    I think it's about 5 miles to the County Building start from Engineer's Gate. To be on the conservative side (in case anyone has a mechanical), I suggest we meet at 9:25am-9:30am, and push off at 9:35am sharp. 25 min to get to the check-in should be plenty.

    If we can get a few people (say 3 or more), we can just ride up without trying to meet up with the guys coming from Brooklyn - unless they're passing through Central Park (but I would guess they're going up the east side).

    If you're fast enough to do the 40-mile route on a SS/FG bike at the stated pace - "15 mph on flat, open stretches", you're plenty fast enough to ride up to the Bronx with me.

    With timmhaan and acavengo, we're up to 4 riders for a Central Park meet-up. Anyone else?
