Wheelmen Takes To The Street





With arms raised in true Tour de France style, our own NancyKR completed her first NYC Marathon on Nov 2. (That was not her corrected time in the picture.)


Great job Nancy.

The High Council Speaks!

After many hours of deliberation, the High Council has decided to move the starting time 30 minutes later.

The new meeting times are: Lakeville and Northern 8 AM: Wheatley and service road, 8:30 AM.

This of course means the rides will be a bit shorter, 30 to 35 miles instead of 50 to 55 miles.

I have a cut off of 38 degrees with sun, 40 without sun.

Weather permitting, see everyone this Sunday.

Sunday November 16 - The ride

Four of us rode: Bob, Ori, Joe and myself.

Very, Very big headwind coming back - wind out of the West.

Joe and I went to the Corset shop and back, 34 miles. Joe had to work and I had the Giants game.

Ori and Bob????

Best,

Jeff

JeffK's Sunday 11/9 Report

We all met at 8 AM at Wheatley Road and the Expressway: Bob, Joe, David, Alan and myself.

Because of the prior night's rain and wet leaves, we decided to go out the service road instead of north on Wheatley.

At the corset shop Joe and Alan decided to go straight to Stillwell and back. Bob, Dave and myself wanted a longer ride and we decided to continue on the service road - using the Triangle Bike Club route from two weeks ago.

Dave and I made the right, but Bob continued straight. That was the last Dave and I saw Bob.

Going out we had the wind at our back, so I was able to keep up with Dave.

BTW, Dave has the new Garmin bike GPS. At the end of the ride it indicated that we had climbed about 1300/1400 feet, about Rupert's!

We went out past Dix Hills and came back - the last 25 miles into a 10-15 mile headwind.

Dave was kind to wait for me at each stop light!

Weather was perfect - high 40's with sun.

Finished about 11:20 AM with 53 miles.

See everyone this Sunday.

Sunday Report

Cold weather, 35F, did not stop eleven riders this morning.

JeffB arrived with two women, Corey and Sarit (cousin of Ori!). They will be leaving with JeffB this week for the Alyn Hospital charity ride. If you did not get the email, sponsor JeffB at http://www.alynride.org/ search for Jeff's last name and hit the sponsorship link.


JeffK and Amos rode together. Bob,Greg, Arthur,Ori, Dave, and Isaac were part of the advance group that went to Bayville via White Church, the S-Turns and Factory Pond Road. Next it was on to Moore's Hill and Stillwell to Syosset Bagel. Isaac cut his ride short due to time issues and took Sandy Hill, the Bumpy and Wheatley home. I was back in Great Neck at 10:30 with about 44 miles ridden and no stops after the drawbridge.

David, Ori, and Isaac had this view of arriving wheelmen as we did not take the extra Bayville loop.

Further ride info will be forthcoming as all the ride precincts report in on there ride tallies.

Good Luck JeffB and Co. in Israel.
