    General info:

    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). There's still time to sign up for the Century!

    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.

    See you on the bike!
