Oh yeah, oh yeah….”

UNIFORM OF THE DAY: Moisture managing lightweight Summer kit.

ON TOP: A short-sleeved wicking base layer under your bike jersey. You may also wish to have a bandana (du rag) or cap to protect your noggin and standard half-fingered bike gloves.

BELOW THE WAIST: I’d go with bike shorts. You’ll also want your light-weight wool or synthetic socks.

AS ALWAYS: Have your RoadID, shades, sunblock (we can dream), lip balm and a snack or two; two water bottles — one full with water; one with some sports drink — or more water if you’re bringing energy chews or “bloks” as snacks.

DON’T FORGET YOUR MEDS: If you use an inhaler or epi-pen, please have them with you. You may want to let one of our ERT’s know you have them aboard.

DON’T FORGET YOUR HELMET…IT’S A MUST!

ANDDD…DAYTIME RUNNING LIGHTS. We’re riding into a beach town on a Holiday Weekend…  while they should still be sleeping off last night and brunching there’s always a possibility of heavy traffic.

PLEASE HAVE A SPARE INNER TUBE…some tire levers and a means to inflate the tube should you need to use it. Remember to stop off your tires before arriving — check the sidewall but most of you will be looking for somewhere around 100 – 120 PSI. If you’re not sure about this part; please bring your pump in the car with you.

REMEMBER: Sag space is limited. So plan for items you can wear or stuff easily in your saddlebag or pockets.

Please arrive at WHIESBORO HIGH SCHOOL 6000 NY-291, Marcy, NY 13403 no later than 7:30AM (0730).

WE ROLL AT 8AM(0800).

THE SUNSET:

THIS IS IT GANG; the LAST CR of 2018. Come on out and play with us…one more time:

“People stay just a little bit longer
We want to play, just a little bit longer

Now the Shepherds don’t mind
And the SAG CREW don’t mind
If we take a little time
before we leave it all behind and roll
One more mile

Oh won’t you stay
Just a little bit longer
Please please please, say you will
Say you will…”

from “STAY”
