Tues/Thur Bike

Leaving from Hoboken Ferry at 540am.  It is a bit dark in the morning so you may want to bring a blinking light.  Ride of approx 20 miles, maybe some repeats, maybe not.  Get out there before it warms-up!

Tuesday/Thursday Ride

Tuesday and Thursday morning rides starting at 5:40 from Hoboken 14th street ferry into the park in Fort Lee with either hill repeats or ride to the first big hill and back. Back in Hoboken at 7am, ~20 mlies. I heard it’ll rain in the afternoons so we should be lucky to avoid the rain in the morning.
