FOA - pics, etc.bent_spoke

I joined the FOA as a day rider after hearing about it from a friend. It was a great experience for me & pretty well organized, though there are still things to work on. For example, before signing up, I was trying to find out the mileage, but no one in the office knew (a little odd, I thought). Also, there could have been some gatorade type drink at the aid stations. Aside from that the ride was well organized & they always seemed to have some one there helping those who flated. The food at the lunch break was great. I had a grilled chicken sandwich with rosemary on a roll. It was like up-scale deli fare. I was surprised to have such great stuff. The support from volunteers and fire & police personnel was great and the response from spectators was awesome...quite a few people came out to wave, shout, beep horns & ring bells, etc. It was excellent!

It was also great to see Greg Lemond before the ride. He saw him giving a interview on the street, discussing his support for WTS and his desire to get everyone out riding. It's great having his support for the event. Pics to follow

So sad. I've seen that view from the Staten Island Ferry many times. The WTC really made that skyline unique and memorable. I hope the powers that be get some guts and rebuild a great building in its place, that New Yorkers can be proud of again.
Yes, it's sad...you feel like something is missing...[nm]bent_spoke
