It’s Spring Training time. Slowly, but surely, the temperatures will start to rise. The days will start to get longer. Daylight Savings will return. And after a winter of either hibernating or doing shorter rides, us cyclists will be back on the road, getting the kinks out and extending our miles.
The 5BBC is here to help. Starting Saturday, March 2nd, with the usual initial ride to Hicksville, we will be offering a diverse menu of spring training rides, of different lengths and speeds. This year we will have a nice variety of old favorites, like those heading over the GWB or starting from Cunningham Park, to new rides on Long Island starting from LIRR stations and going to places like Old Field Lighthouse or Smith Point Park. Build up your mileage week by week, or mix and match, whatever works for you. Want to do that bike event later in the year? Want to ride a metric or regular Century? Start training now and it will be a piece of cake.
Also, this year we will have a number of shorter, often urban rides helping newer riders train either for themselves or for the Five Borough Bike Tour. From quick spinners to newer riders, the 5BBC will be there to lend a hand to train and get you in shape with the friendliest bike club. So, checkout the 5BBC ride calendar at https://www.5bbc.org/rides-events. We already have an extensive list of rides listed and more rides will be added every week by our wonderful leaders. So check back often. See you on the road!!!!
