We're lining up some great rides for you this summer!

As you know, every Sunday morning we ride up the West Side, over the GWB, and into Jersey...

As the summer progresses, we'll be increasing our distance, working towards two goals: the NYC Century for Vision Zero on September 13th, and Bear Mountain (date TBD). Early bird registration for the NYC Century ends Monday, so sign up today!

Sunday, 6/7 @ 8 AM
Destination: The Market on 9W
We'll stop for snacks and coffee at The Market, a cafe with outdoor seating, just 5 miles past the Ranger Station in Alpine, our usual turnaround point. Round-trip about 60 miles. Road bikes are best suited for this ride.

**Note: There is a charity run on the GWB & River Road this Sunday. I'm hopeful the GWB bike path will be open. If it's closed, we'll swim. Just kidding. We'll play it by ear.

Saturday, 6/13 @ 8 AM:
Destination: Coney Island
This is a social ride! All are welcome. We'll take you through the residential streets of Brooklyn out to the sea, with a stop for some Russian fare. Folks are welcome to hang out at the beach, or join us for a brisk return ride to DUMBO.

Sunday, 6/14 @ 8 AM
Destination: The Market on 9W
In case you missed the previous week.
**Note: On this day, there is a Rapha Women's coached ride with the amazing Tara Parsons. Focus on climbing and descending techniques. More info & RSVP here.

Saturday, 6/20 @ 8 AM
Destination: Jamaica Bay / Rockaways
Details TBD.

Sunday 6/21 @ 8 AM 
Destination: Piermont (Gypsy Donut inside Piermont Bicycle Connection)
We we can eat donuts. Right? Round-trip about 70 miles. Road bikes are best suited for this ride.

General info:
Our rides are generally no-drop rides. New riders: we are very encouraging! We regroup at various points along the way. Of course, you are welcome to cut out early, or split off, if our pace is too slow for you. If we have enough participants, we may split into A and B groups.

7 AM: Brooklyn Roasting Company opens for breakfast.
7:45 AM: Redbeard Bikes opens for last minute air, water & pre-ride stretches.
8 AM: Wheels down!

Please bring helmet, sunscreen, water, snacks, spare tube & flat fix kit. Rain cancels. RSVP appreciated but not required. Any questions, give us a shout.

We hope you'll ride with us this summer!
