Training rides for the NYC Century Bike Tour.

This posting came to me From Dani Simons
Communications and Development Director for Transportation Alterntives

Transportation Alternatives and Spokes and Strings are co-hosting free training rides to get folks in shape (and used to riding on the streets) in preparation for T.A.’s annual NYC Century Bike Tour. Rides are open to all, pre-registration is strongly recommended so we can make sure we have enough turnsheets and volunteer marshals on the rides. RSVP to events2@transalt.org. Register for the NYC Century Bike Tour which will take place on Sunday September 10th, at www.NYCCentury.org, proceeds benefit the advocacy work of Transportation Alternatives.

NYC Century Bike Tour Training Rides
All rides will start and finish at Spokes and Strings bike shop in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Enjoy a morning ride along Riverside Drive up to the Cloisters, a trip to the Far Rockaways, or explore the Bronx greenways on the way to Orchard Beach. All rides will begin with a brief orientation about group riding, safety, and basic cycling etiquette. These rides will roll at a medium pace (12-15 mph) and are ideal for beginner to intermediate cyclists. Flat to rolling terrain. Please bring a spare tube and a pump, some pocket money, a Metrocard in case of emergency, snacks and plenty of water. We will provide turnsheets and an experienced ride leader.
