We're riding the New York Five Boro next Sunday. By we, I mean Tim, Al, Robert, Ces, and I. Yup, most of the workforce. So the store will be closed on Sunday and we'll shut down about 3 PM on Saturday so we can drive to Staten Island to spend the night.
What is the New York Five Boro Ride. It's 30,000 people riding 42 miles through the heart of Manhattan, touching on all five New York Boroughs, and doing a big finish over the Verrazano Narrows Bridge with its classic view of the New York skyline.
Ces and I have done this ride a couple of times. It is heady stuff to be riding in New York City where a cyclist can only ride about this one day a year. Riding on the FDR and crossing on the Verrazanno Narrows Bridge are examples of being places that cyclists done normally get to ride.
I hope we do not create an inconvenience for you. This kind of experience is why we work so hard so we can have a day like this one.
