hey guys... just wanna say that i am excited as hell to get away from los angeles for a few days, period--let alone being able to go to new york for a 5-day bikefest! yay.
i haven't been to the city since my early teens, and that experience consisted of my all-too-zealous dad taking our unsuspecting family to all major tourist attractions in the space of 3 or fewer days. just wanna know... what's riding like over there? i know the bike scene is pretty large and in charge, but do any of you locals have advice, stories, places i have to see on a bike, etc? also... i know the weather is gonna be hot and humid. CA gets hot, but it's always dry heat. what kind of clothes are most comfy for riding a lot out there? and is it warm at night?--like i don't need to bring anything more than a sweatshirt, right? (i'm trying to fit everthing i'm bringing in one fairly small carry-able bag.)
okee, i'm finished. hope to see y'alls there. woo hoo.
