It's the Ride of the Irish today! We'll go for a traditional Irish breakfast served at Eileen's Country Kitchen, an authentic Irish restaurant in Yonkers, NY. We will depart from the West 72nd Street entrance to Central Park.
This special, festive 20-ish mile round-trip ride is $16 online/$20 in person at the pre-ride huddle.This includes all tax and gratuities! Please bring exact change. Offerings include eggs, Irish bacon, Irish soda bread, real black and white pudding, home fries, toast, coffee/tea, and one of the nicest dining atmospheres in the state of New York. *Only those who pay will receive a special wristband for the meal.*
We will be seated in a special area just for our Paddy O'Pedal crew instead of waiting in line like everyone else -- see, we take care of our riders!
The atmosphere in Yonkers on this day will be more than enough to make the ride worthy even without the breakfast, but it sure would be great to sit down to a tasty meal together!
For those who wish to make other arrangements for food, there are several bakeries and delis nearby. You can meet up with us afterward.
**Bring on the Green! We will vote on the best Paddy O'Pedal costume! Prize for the winner! How could we forget this signature component of our fun festive rides?! May the best costumed rider/bike win!**
Please bring a friend or two to get the most out of this wonderful once-a-year ride!
As usual, waiver, helmets and extra tubes are required.
