Fortunately for us, Ivan will be riding with us on Saturday, November 12. Please join us as we welcome him for a few spins around the Park with our riders.
We had previously hoped to do a 60-mile ride leaving from our meeting place at 90th St. Instead, we are going to keep this ride within Central Park.
