Rumble thru the Bronx five. This Saturday.
This weekend is the 5th annual Rumble thru the Bronx. An alleycat so intriguing even the New Yorkers feel like "out-of-towners." This is a really fun race which winds its way all over this twisted borough which many participants have never step foot in. Racers often trade in their fixies for the more practical road bike due to the lengthy terrain. Its a race where knowledge of the streets is such a factor that they post all the checkpoints in advance and groups of participants even ride the course in preparation.
Hodari, Mike Dee and their crew due an excellent job of putting on this race which always includes a beach party afterwards on city island and amazing food by Roz. There's nothing like home-made food after a grueling 26 mile race.
Here is a little video I made of last years race:
