Cruzbike micro-rally and ride in New York

Cruzbike Ride in New York

June 25, 10am. Poughkeepsie, NY
This is a ride: 75 miles, 13 mph avg. pace.

Start: Poughkeepsie, NY. Meet on the Walkway over the Hudson.
Planned route: Poughkeepsie to Bell Pond and back.

At the half-way point, we’ll grab some lunch and shoot some breeze. At the end, we’ll get ice cream at Stewart’s.

Robert Matson (Silvio, New York City Recumbent Supply), Peter Maron (Silvio) and Jim Lipscomb (Silvio) came up with this idea. Join us!

Map and cue sheet:
Ice cream: Stewart’s: 85 Creek Rd, Poughkeepsie, NY

This is an unorganized, leader-less meet-up.  But here are some ride guidelines so you know what to expect:

  • Keep it mellow: 13 mph average pace, ride in a loosely-spaced single-file line, obey traffic laws.
  • You must be able to fend for yourself: no tech support, no sweep, no bikes provided.
  • Bring your own map/cue sheet, tools, tubes, drinks, etc.
  • If you go off the front or fall off the back, you’ll need to navigate and take care of yourself.
  • It’s nothing personal if you get dropped. It’s an easy route. We’ll meet you again at lunch or at the ice cream shop.
  • That’s all folks. It’s just a group ride.
  • RSVP if you’d like to receive last minute updates such as cancellation due to weather.
