Riding out

Quickly we form into a neat double paceline and cruise through Central Park.

We ride on up through Manhattan and over the George Washington Bridge.

An over-the-shoulder view of Manhattan.

Christy's group cruising up 9W.

Timothy's group, ah, so disciplined.

Climbing up past Nyack.

Before we knew it we were on the final approach to Bear Mountain.

This is the climb before the climb. Then we're at Bear Mountain and everyone climbs at their own pace.

Here's the view of the Bear Mountain Bridge from Perkins.
