JeffK's Sunday 4/26 wrap up and time change

After much deliberation (what else would you expect) The High Council has decided to move up the starting time by 30 minutes.

That means 7:30 at Lakeville and Northern Blvd and 8 AM at Wheatley.

There were about 15 of us who rode this past Sunday. It was our first "normal" length ride. Basically two groups: Bob, Ori, et al in the fast group: They looked wonderful, not only because of their speed, but 5 of them were wearing North Shore Wheelmen colors.

I was in the second group and we had a 40 plus ride with a stop at the Deli in Syosset. Kudos to Harold who rode very strong and Alan who did the entire ride! Thanks also to the group who waited for Isaac and me.

I do not know about the rest of you, but the last 7 miles from the Expressway to home through Port Washington in the heat, it was 85, really did a number on me! Took a nap for an hour to recover!

See everyone this Thursday and on Sunday!

April 19 - The JeffK Report

Last Sunday Bob, Ori, Greg, Barry, Joe, Alan and myself rode.

At the Corset shop Bob, Ori and Greg split to do an extra 12 miles. Alan, Joe and myself went to the switch back, then the bumpy to the White Church. On the way to Syosett we ran into Barry who later joined up with Bob and his group.

Ran into Paul in Penn Station and he said he would try to be there this Sunday.

Lakeville and Northern at 8 AM. Wheatley and service road at 8:30 AM.

Hope to see everyone there - it should be a beautiful day for a ride.

Sunday 4/12

Five wheelmen and a triangle rider made up the NSW group today. Alan went short. BobL, Ori, Greg, Isaac and the triangle rider, Shigeaki, rode about fifty miles. Bob a little more, Isaac a little less.

Yes it was cold with morning temps around 35 degrees. But it was warm enough to see the caffeine cloud trailing behind Ori.

Next week warmer we hope and more NSW riders.

Start times remain at 8:00 from Great Neck.

South Shore Rules

DavidS, JeffB, Alan, and Isaac rode on the nicest day in April so far. After Alan left early the North Shore Wheelmen were led by the south shore riders. David S showed us how a winter gym membership can prepare one for the road.
BobL did not get the email and rode earlier as he continues his Colorado training.
Next week same time (8:00), I think.
