I learned to ride a bike when I was very young but growing up in a small town in an era when cars were boss, my love of cycling, ironically, didn’t take off until I moved to the Big City. It was more a need for an inexpensive social activity than a desire to become more physically fit that lead me to get serious about cycling in New York City.

Since 2015, the 5BBC has revived, with flare, a nice lead-in weekend trip to Montreal’s Tour de L’lle. It is a bike event similar to New York City’s Five Borough Bicycle Tour, but in our sister Canadian city of Montreal, Quebec province. You’ll see a much bigger ride, spread evenly our and beautiful glimpse of this beautiful city.
We will do this again, from June 2 to June 4, 2017
Last week I was asked to write something about Phil O’Reilly and although I tried, nothing I wrote sounded right.
I sat down, with my tub of coffee, early this AM and tried again. Again…nothing.
I gave up, went back to bed and just when I started to doze, the telephone rang.
It was a friend from the bike club – a close friend of Phil’s.
Ignoring the many apologies for waking me up, we began to talk a bit – finally getting around to talk about Phil.
“Tomorrow’s going to be bad.”
“You mean the wake?”
The weather is warming up and our Spring Training Series has started. This article discusses what you need to know about riding with the 5BBC.
