What we're about

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AD1TvZK_8Ac

Life is like riding a bicycle, in order to maintain your balance you must continue moving.

I love going out and doing things with like minded people but it gets harder each year as time goes by. Friends and family members move away. Some start their own families which limit their personal time. While this is great for them, it can leave you with a smaller group of people you can hang out with.

I'd like this group to participate in a wide variety of activities such as biking, hiking, kayaking, geocaching, cooking, movies, music, restaurants, sporting events, dog walking and so much more! Let's get out there to enjoy life and make some new friends! Almost all events are run by people who like the activity and are NOT experts or professionals. When a professional or expert is leading an event than this will be clearly explained in the event description.

If you sign up for an event then it is your responsibility to keep track of the event date. If you can no longer attend an event that you signed up for then you are responsible for changing your RSVP. If you sign up for an event but do not attend and do not change your RSVP then you are labeled as a "no show." Once you receive three "no shows" then you will automatically be removed from our group. If you are a "no show" for one of our restaurant trips then you will be removed from the group and will not be given a second chance. I don't care how many people are in this group. I only care about having quality people in this group.

Lastly, not every event that we post will be an official meetup. From time to time I'll simply post some cool event happening locally but I'll clearly state in the event description if it's an official meetup or not.

NY 5 Boro Bike Tour

140 Cabrini Blvd, Manhattan, NY 10033

On the first Sunday in May, 32,000 cyclists of all skill levels come from around the world to roll through every borough of New York City on streets totally free of traffic. For one day, the roads are yours, the bridges are yours, the City is yours. There’s no better way to experience the Big Apple by bike. Produced in conjunction with the New York City Department of Transportation, the TD Five Boro Bike Tour is the world’s biggest charitable bike ride, with proceeds funding our free bike education programs. Last year alone, we taught bike skills to more than 16,000 kids and adults. When you ride with Bike New York, you’re helping us in our mission to empower more New Yorkers to grab life by the handlebars. The route begins in Lower Manhattan, heads north via Sixth Avenue through the interior of Central Park and continues into Harlem and Bronx via the Madison Avenue Bridge. Re-entering Manhattan and traveling south along the East River on the FDR Drive. The route crosses the Queensboro Bridge into Queens before heading south across the Pulaski Bridge into Brooklyn, over the Broklyn-Queens Expressway via the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge into Staten Island. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YWHs1_cRxA0 Active Long Island NEEDS to be riding in this next year. Who's with me?

USPS Food Drive

Your Mailbox

Every second Saturday in May, letter carriers in more than 10,000 cities and towns across America collect the goodness and compassion of their postal customers, who participate in the NALC Stamp Out Hunger National Food Drive — the largest one-day food drive in the nation. Led by letter carriers represented by the National Association of Letter Carriers (AFL-CIO), with help from rural letter carriers, other postal employees and other volunteers, the drive has delivered more than one billion pounds of food the past 20 years. Carriers collect non-perishable food donations left by mailboxes and in post offices and deliver them to local community food banks, pantries and shelters. Nearly 1,500 NALC branches in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, Guam and the Virgin Islands are involved. To donate, just place a box or can of non-perishable food next to your mailbox before your letter carrier delivers mail on the second Saturday in May. The carrier will do the rest. The food is sorted, and delivered to an area food bank or pantry, where it is available for needy families. With more than 50 million people facing hunger every day in America, including nearly 17 million children, this drive is one way you can help those in your own city or town who need help.
