Greenwich Estates - Get Out of Town Series - New Date

 

Join us for our annual 41 mile journey to scenic Greenwich, CT, where we will ride on quiet, suburban roads. We will ride at an Advanced pace of 15+ mph on the flats. Elevation is estimated at 2,106 feet with the highest grade at 8.1% according to RWGPS. The ride will start and end in Cos Cob, CT.

Beth Powmesamy has agreed to be my co-leader as part of the Leadership Training Program.

 

There is a Metro North train departing Grand Central at 9:05 AM, arriving in Cos Cob at 10:05. Be on it. There are no restrooms in the immediate vicinity so please make certain to use the facilities on the train. 

 

Lunch is fairly early in the ride at mile 15.7 in Banksville. Below is the RWGPS.

Make sure your bike is in good working condition with properly inflated tires before leaving home in the morning. Always check your email and the website for last minute status of the ride in case of potential bad weather.

 

Bring two water bottles, sunscreen, a spare tube and snacks to keep you fortified before and after lunch.

 

Please note: I limit the ride to 15 because I want to be able to ride as a single group. Larger than fifteen becomes difficult to manage.

 

If you register, but can no longer make the ride, please unregister so someone from the waitlist can participate. 

Lastly, if you sign up for the waitlist and receive a waitlist notification, you must open the email and register for the ride using the link provided in the email. The system does not automatically bump you up to the ride if a spot becomes available.
