I know what comes to mind,
This is the 15th annual signature event for the New York Cycle Club
Saturday, September 26, 2009
General Description: (from their site)
Escape the crowds and ride out of Manhattan into our favorite cycling territory: the West Hudson Highlands.
Choose one of three beautiful, well-marked routes of 50, 65 or 100 miles, all beginning and ending in Manhattan. Each route offers picture-postcard views of the Hudson River and Palisades as you cross the George Washington Bridge and ride through the hidden pleasures of Bergen and Rockland Counties.
Enjoy the support and hospitality of The New York Cycle Club. This is the day our club goes all out to deliver a food-filled, fun-filled and fabulous day of riding to our brethren in the cycling community.
This year’s ride profits will benefit both Recycle-A-Bicycle, a youth training and environmental education initiative, and Transportation Alternatives, advocates for non-polluting, quiet, city-friendly travel.
or you might enjoy the fix-a-flat contest:
Escape New York, NY Cycle Club “signature ride,” is Sat. Sept. 26. Start: 7, 8 and 9 a.m. Finish 1 p.m. onward. Location: Sakura Park, 122d & Riverside opposite Grants Tomb.
