How invigorating to come home so many days this past week or so, to a friendly mailbox holding pamphlets of upcoming cycling tours and rides. They all look like great opportunities to explore new sights, enjoy the camaraderie of other cyclists, and awaken your senses, muscles, and limbs! Additionally you have the added bonus of fresh air, sweet scents, and to begin your day with vivid sunrises and spectacular sunsets. I’m passing the info along to you! Anyone planning on signing up? Or if you have other tours to suggest, please do!
May 1st: The Five Borough Bike Tour, NYC: This is a one day 42 mile tour of the boroughs that make up New York City. Car free streets, and magnificent sights are part of the fun.
