Join LGBT riders of Fast and Fabulous Cycling Club for a backroads century that's sure to burn some flab. This century might be a couple of miles short of the 100-mile mark, but the hills more than make up for it. The views along the east side of the Hudson River can be breathtaking, but save some breath for the climbs! Once we cross the Bear Mountain Bridge to the western shore, the terrain levels off a bit, and you can practically smell the city once we hit Nyack, often for an early dinner at the Runcible Spoon. Riders should download the cue sheet in advance from http://www.fastnfab.org/CueSheets/bearmountainbridgeew.htm and show up at the Boathouse in Central Park for a departure at 8 a.m. sharp. Pace is B15 or faster, depending on the group. We will make plenty of deli stops, but bring pocket food too, as this is an all-day adventure. Those with less ambition might consider riding to the first rest stop in Tarrytown, where a gourmet deli and bakery beckon; round-trip is about 50 mi. and you’ll need to reverse the cue sheet to get home. Your leader for this expedition is Bob Nelson, available at fastnfab (at) yahoo (dot) com or 212-567-7160.
