New York City Run: June 9 2013
With all the success and good times from last year's end of season run, we'll bring it back again for round two! The basic route will take us down the Hudson to the Statue of Liberty, around the tip of Manhattan and up the East and Harlem Rivers, dumping us back out into the Hudson.
John F Kennedy Marina & Park in Yonkers, NY. The launch is located off of Warburton Ave on John F Kennedy Memorial Drive. It is directly behind Riverside High School. Using the marina name/street name or high school on google maps will get you accurate directions. There is a $20 cash only launch fee. The Marina has plenty of parking, bathrooms, as well as a hose connection to flush and wash down skis afterwards. There are no docks to tie off to, so it is most definitely a team effort when launching.
June 9, 2013, 9:00AM. I understand things happen and people run late, so we will be meeting early and BSing at the ramp for a little while saying our hellos and getting to meet everyone all over again while we wait for everyone to arrive. Hopefully we can hit the water by 10:00AM, 10:30AM latest.
**Our rain date will be June 30, 2013**
Please make sure you bring everything you need including riding gear, skin protection, food, water, and money. We can have a discussion on a place to grab lunch on the river as well. Also...there is 87 octane readily available on the river, and what looks to be 93 octane available at Port Imperial Marina, although this run can be done on one tank of fuel.
A trip report can be found here: http://pwctrailfinder.com/files/Download/ManhattanSkylineLoop-Plus.pdf
I will continually update this post with a roll call as people commit so we can get an approximate head count as to who is coming. I will also update this thread with information regarding times and places for people who will be meeting up and driving to the ramp together so it is easily accessible without digging through a thread. Look forward to seeing everyone!
CT Riders: Meeting up at 730am at the commuter lot on Chase Parkway in Waterbury. Exit 18 off of I-84. Use 702 Chase Parkway if punching it into your GPS. There is one toll on the way, have $2 on hand.
