We'll meet under the arch at Grand Army Plaza at 10:45am, (wheels down at 11am) and ride to catch the ferry in DUMBO at 11:30am to head to the Governor's Island Unicycle festival. There will be food for sale there or you can bring food for a picnic. We'll bike around the island a bit together then people can feel free to eat with the group, hit some of the event activities, or do their own thing.
A few notes:
- The 11am and 11:30am Brooklyn ferries are free. You'll have to pay $3 for later ferries.
- You can catch a ferry from Manhattan (also free at 11am and 11:30am) and meet us in Governor's Island.
