Our last event ride of 2016 was to plant daffodil bulbs that will bloom in Spring 2017.
This past Sunday, we rode from our Central Park trailer to Corlear’s Hook Park on the Lower East Side to work with the Friends of Corlear’s Hook Park. We dug some trenches, got good and dirty, planted a whole bunch of daffodil bulbs, had some lunch with new friends and rode back to the Park.
We will ride back in the spring to see how we did. Special thanks to stokers Jay Kronfeld and Shelley Wine for helping arrange the event with Michael Marino from the Friends of Corlear’s Hook Park. Thanks as always to Jonathon Epstein for leading the ride, to captains Jose Nieves and Matt Hasday, and to Susan Elefant for the photos and just about everything else.
Our first ever email fundraising appeal is underway. If you happened to have missed the first appeal blasts amongst those of every other not-for-profit on the planet, please take a few minutes to visit our appeal page.
This is the time of year when we ask all our friends to include InTandem in their gifting plans. Your generosity will go a long way in assuring our members will have plenty of riding opportunities in 2017.
InTandem is having its annual HolidayParty on Monday, Dec. 12th, from 7 to 10 PM at Boxers NYC, 37 West 20th Street, between 5th & 6th Avenues. There will be bar chow, libations, good company and fun conversations! And there will be dance music in the background and a pool table. So, captains and stokers – show us what you’ve got, on the table or on the floor! So Team InTandem, it’s time to party!
The ticket price is $35, which will entitle you to the buffet and 2 drinks. WE WANT EVERYBODY TO COME AND PARTY! If you can’t swing the ticket but can manage a few bucks, there’s an option to “Pay what you can.” If you’re in a position to cover a friend and/or make a donation, go for it! And of course, there’s a COMP option because we really want to see you there.
Our friends from the New Zealand Achilles chapter are in town to run the TCS NYC Marathon on Sunday. On Monday afternoon, they will be coming to Central Park to ride with us. Let’s give them a good ride.
WE NEED SOME CAPTAINS TO RIDE WITH THEM. Please join us if you can.
