July 15 NYC Ride details, and Ladies Road Bike Clinic!

For those of you who are attending the NYC Tour de Cupcake ride on Sunday, July 15th, a few reminders!
  • We'll meet at KC's Bagels on Route 23 in Pompton Plains at 7:45 a.m. We'll travel down to Fort Lee Park, ditch our four wheeled vehicles, and pedal our way across the GWB and do some sightseeing in NYC - including cupcake rest stops! Our exact time back? Not sure - maybe when we run out of cupcakes? 
  • If it is raining in the a.m., we'll cancel and reschedule. Cupcakes get soggy in the rain!
And for our ladies - instead of our usual Wednesday night ride on July 18, join us at the Kahl's for a road bike clinic and dinner! 
  • Bring your road bike - we won't be riding, but we'll go over the care and feeding of your road bike. 
  • We'll meet at 6 p.m. - please RSVP ASAP and bring your favorite appetizer or dessert! 
Have a great weekend!

Sunday, July 15 - Tour de Cupcake NYC

Details for our Sunday, July 15 NYC ride are set! We'll meet at KC's Bagels on Route 23 at 7:45 a.m., and head off to Fort Lee Park, where we will park and re-group, approx. 8:30 a.m. Then the fun begins! We'll roll across the GWB, taking in the sights, and making a few stops for cupcakes, etc. Our timetable is very flexible, so we don't have a real estimate of when we will make it back to Fort Lee, but hey - there will be cupcakes - so it will be all good! Make sure to bring cash, water bottles, and some sunscreen, if you desire. 

A great way to see NYC and spend a Sunday! We're looking for a rough headcount, so please RSVP and let us know if you are in - and the more the merrier, so bring a friend!
