i forgot to post about the five boro bike tour i did two weeks ago!
i probably would never never done this tour had my friend george not asked me to join his team. i was being such a big baby about even getting into manhattan with my bike alone and riding downtown. i felt like such a nerd. it was cake getting down to the financial district from penn, though. i don’t know wtf i was so worried about. i guess the unknown just always scares me.
anyways, so the five boro tour starts in FiDi and ends up bringing riders through all 5 boroughs (while you’re only in the bronx for like FIVE seconds) and leaves you in staten island. yeah, 40 miles with 32k other cyclists… it was quite the experience.
i don’t want this to be one of those “what you should expect”/what to do or tips posts, this was just my experience (in case you find this post via google).
i have some thoughts…
