Netflix the movie "City Island", pack your best neon bikini and get ready!
Meet at Zen Bikes in the flatiron district in Manhattan at 10am. Zen will have any last minute supplies (tubes, etc.) you might need and there's a wholefoods around the corner for drinks & snacks. Ride leaves Zen Bikes at 10:15am and begins the easy ride up to City Island along the West Side Greenway and on to endless lobsterhouses on City Island and a beach that used to be called “The Riviera of the East.” Route takes us through NYC’s largest green space Pelham Bay Park.
Please come prepared: a helmet, bike lock, water and money for any food or drink. A spare inner tube, multi-tool, mini-pump and patch kit are also a very good idea. This is a self-supported fun ride. A ride marshall will be there to help with any problems along the route, but riders are expected to be able to handle their own basic maintenance issues and come with a bike capable of riding 45+ miles along uneven city street surfaces. A messenger bag or panniers will also make the ride more fun.
