Rides for 7/9-7/15

1) I will not be riding on Monday and Wed evening this week. Chuck and Dr. Bruce should be able to handle those who show up.

2) Thursday’s 6 Ferry Ride from New London to Orient Point is ON. I’m moving the “show-up” time in New London to 7:30 am. Parking may be available @ the dock, but if not the parking garage on the other side of the railroad tracks always has plenty of space. It is $10 cash for parking. New London Orient Point Ferry same day round trip with bike is $38. The North Ferry to Shelter Island with bike is $5.00 cash same day round trip. The South Ferry to Sag Harbor same day round trip with bike is $6.00. Total parking and ferries is $59.00. The New London Ferry takes credit cards os minimum cash not including lunch is $21.00. Figure $25 for snacks and lunch. In general, I always bring at least $50 and a credit card. We’ll try and catch a 4:00 pm ferry, but if not, they run at 30 min intervals at this time of year. Travel time from West Hartford is about 75 minutes, but I usually allow 90 min. So far we have Brian, Win, Jean, Marc, Jeff, and Jane signed up for the trip. Please confirm that you’ll be there. Intermediate guests or better are always welcome. https://ridewithgps.com/routes/27770081

3) This coming weekend, Sunday 7/15, I’ll be riding from Great Barrington to the Shaker Village just west of Pittsfield on Route 20. I’ll leave GB at 9:30 for a 45 mile, 2000’ climb ride. This is pretty mellow with no big climbs, just rolling terrain suitable for just about anyone who can sit in the saddle for 3-4 hours. I plan on stopping at the Shaker Village just to wander around for a bit and have lunch @ Their Farm to Table Cafe. Let me know if you’re joining me. Don

I am not riding on Mon or Wed this week, getting ready for 100 miles on Saturday in the ERRACE ride

Who’s leading the Monday, 7/9 ride if Don and Bruce aren’t there?

Note that I'm including 2 routes for the Orient Point ride on Thursday. I will be going a little more slowly than normal so one route is longer than the other, but they should time out to meet at the ferry docks at the same time and end in Sag Harbor at the WW-II Memorial. We'll lunch in Sag. Riders can chose which ever route they wish.
