Ramblersville in Winter
I AM GOING RIDING TODAY - YES, IT IS COLD AND WINDY. NO, THE ROADS ARE NOT IN PRISTINE CONDITION. But, If anyone wants to join me I'll see you at 10:30. If roads do seem too poor to ride on, we will modify as needed. This may include new route, or just saying screw it and turning back. But, hoping to ride.
t's February - which can only mean that it is time for our annual cold weather ramble to Ramblersville. Traditionally, this has always been one of the coldest rides of the year. So, bundle up, get a warm beverage in the thermos, and let's ride. One of the most isolated neighborhoods in New York City, Ramblersville is a one block wide strip of land between Old Howard Beach and JFK. Houses are built on stilts in this marshy spit of land. We head to the very shore of Jamaica Bay to a wonderful hobo beach. We also cross one of the most scenic footbridges in NYC. NOTE - The route may be modified owing to any weather conditions that we may encounter on the way.
We will be stopping at New Park Pizza for lunch. Remember to take a mask and your vax cert. Take a lock. Take tubes. Remember - if your hands, feet or ears are cold - you won't be a happy rider. Dress accordingly. This is a 32 mile ride, so we will be keeping a steady pace and do not expect any extended stops.
Please check the website before you leave for any weather related cancellations or delays.
