Come join the 5BBC and the LI Randonneurs for a social mixer at Alewifes in LIC.
Wondering what a randonneur (rahn doe ner) is?
In short, it's a cyclist who enjoys the challenges that come with riding longer distances.
Events, known as brevets (bruh vays), build upon one another and offer beginner and veteran cyclists alike new challenges in terms of planning, preparation, performance, perseverance, and of course, mileage. In this social, we will learn about the joys of randonneuring, and meet some folks who do it.
Date, Time and Location Details:
The Social will be on Friday March 22, 2019 at 6:30 pm. Prior to the program there will be time to schmooze, eat, and order a favorite beverage.
The event will be at Alewife Brewing Company located at 5-14 51st Ave, Long Island City, NY. This is about five minutes from the Pulaski Bridge. It is also a five minute walk from the Vernon Blvd - Jackson Ave stop on the #7 train.
