Riding the Five Boroughs of NYC.

Three of us will be traveling to NYC this weekend to ride the Five Boroughs event on Sunday.  We will begin on 6th Avenue in Manhattan, through Central Park, Queens, the Bronx, Brooklyn and finally cross the Verranzano  Bridge into Staten Island.   Naturally we will stop in Brooklyn for a slice or two of pizza. That's a no-brainer.

Waiting to start

We will spend Saturday being tourist and plan to do that on in lower Manhattan in the Bowery district.  We are also going to walk across the Brooklyn Bridge before checking in for our ride packets at Basketball City at Pier 36 in Manhattan

Trying to settle on a place for lunch can be daunting.  There are so many great restaurants that is difficult to pick.   Dinner will be on 2nd Ave and 52nd St.  There are lots of great places there and we will choose on the spur of the moment.  All will definitely be reported here upon our return.
