Biking and Bon Ton Roulet

Hi Everyone!

As I took my skis out of the car in Jackson today, a bike and rider passed by. A sloppy, wet, sandy, salty, spray flew from the wheels -- luckily for the rider, the bike had fenders... not so luckily for the bike to be immersed in the brine...

This reminded me that biking is about a month away -- the start of the bike season meshing with spring skiing season. Start looking for the ThursdayBike postings on this site when the roads clean up - likely by mid April.

ThursdayBike will be set up just as it was done last year. I will post rides, times, meeting places and maps on Tuesday or Wednesday nights on this site once I have a good feeling about the weather forecast for Thursday.
Anyone want to host their favorite ride? Want to host a new ride?? GREAT!! Contact me and you will be on the schedule!!!

For a summer vacation on your bike...The Bon Ton Roulet is a supported bicycle tour of the Finger Lakes region of upstate New York. There are a few ThursdayBike riders signed up for this. It would be fun to have more join in!!!
It is from July 26 th to August 1st - see the details at
