For a Good Cause
2018 Ride for City Harvest
Ride for City Harvest, NYC charity focused on food rescue and distribution, education,
and other practical, innovative solutions. Organized by Cycling Network International, the ride
featured 2 options. A 35 mile and a 75 mile ride. Here are some photos from the day.
Behind the Scenes
Thea staff and ride leaders ensured all the details were taken care of, resulting in a well organized event.
On the road
We rolled out as a group up to the George Washington Bridge.
Along the we way, we stopped for a group photo
Time for a group photo
We stopped along the West Side Greenway for a group photo. As you can imagine, coordinating almost 100 people can be a challenge!
Regroup & Check-In
We regrouped after crossing the GWB so everyone was clear on the next phase of the ride.
After checking in and a few announcements, it was off to the fist few climbs.
Starting to see the seasonal color change, even with 75F / 23C weather.
After climbing onto 9W, a few groups formed based on speed.
The fast group headed out first, followed by the rest. I went out with a medium paced group.
Back to the City
Once we all got back onto 9W, the group split up again. This time, I latched onto a fast group and we pacelined all the way back to bridge including a sprint up Hudson Terrace (Unnecessary Hill). Hence, no photos of the ride back.
But, once over the bridge we took it easy on the way back to Roula.
