Just a Longer Ride around the City! (About 50 miles)

 You can start this ride later if you want to since it will begin with a short jaunt down to 4 and 20 Blackbirds for pie and coffee before we hit the road.  Figure that we will take off from there at 10:45.  Just text me at[masked] on the morning of the ride if you are going to join us there (it is at the corner of 3rd Ave and 8th St, just 1.5 miles from the Arch.

 So at 10 I will gather folks up at the Arch and head down to 4 and 20 Blackbirds, get some pie and coffee then head back up to the park at about 10:45AM.

 Attached is the cue, but in summary, we will ride around Prospect Park, then over the Manhattan Bridge, up the East side to Central Park, do a half loop, exit on St Nick, to the Greenway on 125th, all the way uptown, down on the bike path on the east side, up at 155th, then down St Nick, back to the east side bike path, cross over to the west side midtown, then down the westside greenway, all the way down to the ferry terminal before backtracking a bit to head over the Brooklyn Bridge and back to Prospect Park!

All that is about 50 miles, give or take.

      Dorcas, there is a short bike path that runs right in the middle of Pike Street for just a few blocks, we will be going down that path about an hour after we leave the pie place. You can follow the cue sheet to see exactly where.

    Just to clarify a bit here. By 10 AM I will be at the Arch. I'll leave from there at 10 sharp and head down to 4 and 20 Blackbirds on 3rd Ave and 8th. If you are not at the Arch at 10AM, go to 4 and 20 Blackbirds because we will then start from there! DO NOT go to the Arch at 10:45!! My # is[masked], better to text to that than leave a comment here on the day of the ride if you need to reach me!!
