Outerharbor Ride

Two choices for distance - 6 miles roundtrip - includes wooden boardwalks, nice smooth pavement and uneven pavement (you have to ride on the street for short distances).
12 miles - this includes both sides of Route 5.

Because the bike paths are new(er) this is a very easy ride. A new waterside park opened earlier this month, complete w/a splash pad. Included in the 12 miles is a ride through Times Beach.

I have two extra bikes, if anyone needs to borrow. Both are 26".

      He was having too much damn fun with that kite. I had no choice but to ruin it for him!!

      Remember at the beginning of Despicable Me where Gru blows up a great balloon dog and then pops it! That's Andrea! She's the fun police! ;)

    Hmm I received neither text nor call - weird. I thought of calling but didn't think you'd want to interrupt the ride to come and fetch me. So how'd it go? You guys get rained upon?

    July 10, 2013

    • Andrea

      I have att. Yeah, no wonder you've been ignoring me. After all, we were all very clear with the rules around text responsiveness! Lol!

      Alberto texts me and then i have to email a response. It sucks. Except for him, he loves it.

  • Steve G

    I was too late :( - you should have counted to 10!!

    Also I apparently don't know where this beach is - I found a parking lot on South Furhmann but it was definitely not beach like

    Curses...

      What cliff said.

  • Gina

    No rain but the winds on the return trip were brutal!! I think we would have made better time if we had walked next to our bikes. 'Course Cliff made it look easy! I believe at one point he was peddling backwards. Brutal!

    July 10, 2013

    • Andrea

      I was seriously hearing the wicked witch song from wizard of oz. i was hunched down, peddling as furiously as i could while barely moving forward. But wow, exhilarating!

    Apparently, i can't post the pic until the event is technically over. Hrmmm.

      Smart! Uploaded now!

      July 10, 2013

  • Andrea

    I didn't call him! I texted him early but had no response! Oops, level 5 miscomm leaves Steve stranded.

  • Gina

    Tingle tingle tingle, Steve! Did you feel that vibration in your pocket? That was Andrea calling you!!

    OMG ... I swear to the gods ... you won't believe what was delivered to my house today. A bike. Not just a bike,m but the bike. A slightly early bday present. I have to get a helmet still, but ... SQUEEEEE!!!!!!

    • Effie (Stephanie) M.

      Though ... umm. I might need a ride for me and my SHINY NEW BIKE lol, if anyone can.

    I was going to say yes to the bite on the ear but now THAT'S off the table....

      Yessir - the world of ear based banter moves quickly; one either gets right onboard or gets left behind... :)

      July 8, 2013

    • Alberto V.

      That's right... In one ear and out the other! Waka Waka ;-)

    The Jackie Robinson baseball movie "42" is playing outdoors at UB south campus at 9:15, if anyone feels like going to that. Maybe bike ride, bite to ear, movie??

    I would love to join. Looks like both your bikes are spoken for. Anyone have a spare bike? If so, I would like to sign up.

    That's so exciting, Effie!!! Yay!!

    1 · June 26, 2013

  • Effie (Stephanie) M.

    If I somehow procure a bike by this time, I will absolutely be there! Otherwise, have fun!

    June 25, 2013

  • Gina

    I rode through the new park tonight and it's just beautiful! If anyone wants to bring a volleyball there are two nets.

    June 24, 2013

  • Mykal E.

    Until I get my bike fixed, could I borrow one?

    1 · June 24, 2013

  • Steve G

    I think I'd like to try this but I'd probably be borrowing one of those bikes. Normally I would assume that's fine (with you offering loaners and whatnot) but since certain cemetery personnel find me suspicious I thought I'd check in advance...

    Hi Ben! This is a great group, nice, fun people! Watch out for Alberto though; he's trouble!! ;)
