Last night, in conjunction with Mighty Hatchet, we hosted our first “Friendly Fire” Class. The purpose of this gathering was to discuss various types of camp stoves, fuel and firs starting techniques.
On June 5/6, 2017, 718 Cyclery closed its doors to go on a staff camping trip to Mountain Lakes Park in North Salem, NY. For a shop that is open 362 days/year (closed Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years Day), this was a major bonding event. We had a good amount of rain, and it was the coldest June day/night in the last 10 years.
2017 Micro-Tour 2 was a ride from 718 Cyclery on May 20th up through Westchester County to historic Croton Point ParkThese 47 miles was mostly traversed at a calm elevation on protected bike lanes (Hudson River Greenway, South County Trailway and North County Trailway)
Micro-Tour 03 was a fire-breathing, misty-mountain hop. It's a 55 mile ride from 718 to Lake Tiorati in Harriman State Park, 5 miles NW of Stony Point. At one point, we had 71 people signed up for this trip. Due to the threat of storms (that only partially materialized), we pulled 24 people out to ride and camp with us.
