718 Bike Club Shop Ride on the Old Croton Aqueduct Trail
Packing the “Ten Essentials” whenever you step into the backcountry, even on day hikes or rides, is a good habit. On a basic trip you may use only a few of them or none at all. It’s when something goes awry that you’ll truly appreciate the value of carrying these items that could be essential to your survival.
On October 8. 2018, Chris Jones (the creator of Safety Pizza) led a ride from the shop to Spumoni Gardens in Bay Ridge for some pizza.
As we move towards introducing our Saturday Shop Rides , I want to pause and remember the genesis of our riding program...The Titans of Tuesday. The Titans of Tuesday were born in July 2014 in Utah. I had let Chris Kelly of Topanga Creek convince me that we as a shop needed more time outside the shop. At the time, this was my second trip to Utah for mountain-biking, and I returned to Brooklyn ready to go on some rides and spread the good word.
