How does this work? I assume the streets are not closed? If not, it would seem like it would be a really long day to put in 100 milesI've done this a few times already too and are looking forward to it again. It rained towards the end of last years ride. I look forward meeting people on the ride like last year I met these two girls who drove all the way from North Carolina just for this ride!
I was thinking more in terms of stoplights. Maybe I have a wildly inaccurate view of the city but I envision it as one giant city street with lots of lights.DaveG: They don't close the streets like they do for the 5BBT and its a staggered start at central park so your riding as a trickle and stream of people not in a mob group. Its better than 5BBT because it dosen't have that HUGE mob.
The route takes you on a lot of dedicated bike paths and through parks.I was thinking more in terms of stoplights. Maybe I have a wildly inaccurate view of the city but I envision it as one giant city street with lots of lights.
You do realize that the segment on the Marine Parkway bridge is as you pass the sign that says "No Photo Taking Allowed". A 9/11 remnant.Have volunteered as a marshal for this ride a few times; including
this year's. Always a lot of fun. Route gets tweaked a little bit each year; but follows a general path. Had to bail early this year; had a
party to attend for lunch.
