    Is the cue sheet for this ride posted online anywhere? I missed it but would like to do it on my own.

    I will be at the start, rain or shine. If it is a torrential downpour with lightning and thunder, we will probably cancel it. If it's just sprinkles or the occasional summer shower, the ride goes on. Dress appropriately. You can peel off and head home via your bike or the subway whenever you like!

      And don't worry about changing your RSVP! I'm using that as a general guideline, not a rock solid who's who.

    We'll be making stops at the major graffiti spots in Gowanus, Bowery, Williamsburg, Bushwick, LIC (lunch stop), and Astoria then taking a straight shot back to GAP. I'll hand out cue sheets at the ride start.

      You'll be able to peel off and head home whenever you like and there are subway stops along our route. :) But I'm betting you'll be able to keep up fine.

    To the organizers of the Graffiti Ride:

    Hi there! I am brand-new to biking in NYC and am SO excited about this weekend's graffiti ride. Saturday's forecast shows a 30-40% chance of rain and thunderstorms, however, so I was wondering at what point, if any, will you either cancel or postpone the ride? And, if it goes along as planned (in the rain), and I decide not to join, should I just change my RSVP to "no"?

      ...info on the bike route for tomorrow?

    Hey guys! I'm interested in joining this ride, what is considered a moderate pace?

    • Shawn C.

      Anywhere from 10-15 average with stops at the major graffiti spots in Gowanus, Bowery, Williamsburg, Bushwick, LIC (lunch stop), and Astoria then a straight shot back to GAP. We'll do a point, drop, sweep with me as leader, a rider posted at each turn as we go along to guide the way, and my co-leader as a sweep to pick up the drops and make sure any stragglers are swept into the ride.

      Thanks for the info! I really hope I can make it depending on school assignments, it sounds like a blast!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
