    Time: 06:00

    Transportation Alternatives, New York City's coalition for cyclists and pedestrians, plops the NYC Century Bike Tour (https://biketours.transalt.org/nyccentury) into our laps, with distances of 15, 35, 55, 75 or 100 mi. traced along hard-won bike paths in distant boroughs. Your entry fee brings you priceless vistas of urban landscapes, six rest stops and the camaraderie of some 7,000 of New York’s geekiest bike geeks – who could ask for more? And if your legs or any other part of your physique fail, a subway station is never more than 15 min. away. We’re back in Central Park this year with a start at 110th and Malcolm X Blvd. Join Bob Nelson, Patrick Guilfoyle and Billy Diggs on the hundred-miler; we’ll be at Pier 97 at the painful but extremely realistic hour of 6 a.m., the departure time for 100-mi. riders. Or contact Bob to find a buddy for a shorter distance. Questions? Bob Nelson, fastnfab (at) gmail (dot) com or 212-567-7160.

    * NyackNyack

    Time: 10:00

    It’s a cute town on the west bank of the Hudson with plenty of kitschy stores and a bike shop or three; on weekends it’s besieged by roadies from New York City, among which you will be. Roll up the bike path, take the pedestrian overpass over the Henry Hudson Parkway just north of the George Washington Bridge, then meet the group at the corner of Cabrini and 178th at 10 a.m. We ride over the bridge, but once you’re over it, the scary part is done and you’re on quiet, smooth roads with just enough up and down to feel like a workout, but not so much that it feels like a death march. The mantra to keep muttering under your breath is “Patisserie Didier Dumas. Patisserie Didier Dumas!” The offerings at this bakery and café (163 Main St., http://www.didierdumas.com/) make the biker standby, the Runcible Spoon, a second-place choice at best. After your scone, croissant or quiche, the way back is mostly flat. In the last few miles, however, we encounter the triple play of East Hudson Ave., Davison Place and last but not least, Walnut St., though your reward at the top is a glimpse of Gloria Crest, the 1926 Italianate mansion that was briefly home to Gloria Swanson. There is a cue sheet, though the policy will be to drop no one; go to http://fastnfab.org/cue-sheet-nyack-front-and-back . Bob Nelson is inflicting this ride on your souls, so complain to him at fastnfab (at) gmail (dot) com or 212-567-7160
