  • This week's rides

    We've been quite lucky with weather thus far -- Sundays have been by and large sunny!
    But after last Sunday's rain, we realized we should clarify: rain the morning of the ride cancels the ride. That said, if it's just drizzling/looks like it might clear up, come on out! In these cases we may revise the route (i.e. do laps in Prospect Park instead of going up to River Road), but we will ride!
    Upcoming rides:
    • One of our customers, Guy, has organized a ride to Nyack happening this Saturday. Departure at 7:15 AM from DUMBO or 8 AM from Fairway on the Upper West Side. If you'd like to join, please reply to this thread.
    • Our women's ride is this (and every) Thursday, meet at 8:30 PM at Grand Army Plaza.
    • Sunday morning shop ride to River Road, meet at 7:15 AM at the shop.
    • We're planning a special ride for Saturday, August 30th, to support the Afghan Women's National Cycling Team. Stay tuned for details.
    Got any fun rides planned? We encourage you to share them.
