5 Burros NYC Bike Tour

Gentle readers this Ruskin , Florida cyclist went to the big apple for his second 5 boros bike tour. A good flight to JFK and the Super Shuttle ride from hell to the garment district. A quick subway to Brooklyn to the bike expo. It was great. 


I saw the mechanic from RAGBRAI who lent me a $6500 Specialized Roubaix for 4 days and ended up fixing my Di2 on my Strong Bike, Nicholas. What a great young man. 


I got a pic of me with Manhattan in the background. 


Venue outside. 


I wanted to ride some the next day and headed for the Statue of Liberty Ferry. I went down the green designated greenway through Herald Square, Chelsea and Greenwich. 


I went by the 9/11 memorial park. Note the featured image is of the new single tower. One of the memorial pools. 



I went up and down the Hudson River Park bikeway it was busy and beautiful. 






I got down the ferry and it seemed that my rear tire was getting a slow leak. It appeared that I would need to get back to the barn where I could really fix it. The pier was cool. 



Back to the barn with a fix of bike and a lazy afternoon. 


Early Michelin rated Italian cuisine dinner around the corner. 32,000 ride buddies tomorrow. Peace out. Namaste Tres
