    Good Trip

    Got back Monday from this trip to NYC. We all had a great time.

    Highlights:
    Great place to stay in Chinatown. It was close to a lot of sites, the bike expo and the ride start. We were able to walk to many places.

    Had dinner in Brooklyn at Modern Love, a vegan restaurant run by Isa Chandra Moskowitz

    Saw Fearless Girl on Wall St, Battery Park, Statue of Liberty (from across the river)

    Had a good ride. It was chilly and we got rained on a bit, but it was OK. The ride was slow though. Near the end I managed to get my average speed up to 9.8 mph. I don't think I have ever ridden that slow. The route was flat and easy. And I was riding with 5 good friends and we found each other all day in the mass of 31,000 riders. That worked out perfect.

    Nice get together after the ride for pizza and beer at a friends house. That was great to go over the days activities and just be together.

    So this goal is done. With all we did over the 3 days, I would say it was a success. We packed a lot in over those 3 days.

    We leave tomorrow

    Everything is all set for our trip. I talked with two of my travelling companion today. All are excited about the trip.

    There is a bit of concern about the weather on Sunday, the day of the ride. Everyone, myself especially, is tired of riding or running in the cold and rain. (Last Sunday's race was especially brutal).

    Hopefully it will at least not rain. Either way, we can make it a good fun time.
