Unfortunately, this workshop has been cancelled due insufficient participant numbers to meet the minimum numbers set by the leaders, who were driving in from Albany.
Perhaps we will attempt this again.
Do take part in the rest of local Bike Month activities, which will be listed shortly.

The October Cycle in the City ride will be this coming Sunday (October 4th) at 9 am beginning at the trail head of the Creek Walk in Armory Square (Jefferson Street). This is the last ride for this year.
Both the short ride and the long ride will use the same route, with a couple of extensions to make the long route longer. The short route is about 11.6 miles long. The long route has an additional loop of about a mile and then a ride out the Creek Walk to Onondaga Lake (and back) at the end.
The route uses a few streets that we have not used (or used much) including Milton Avenue, Green Street, Butternut Street, and Rugby. The routes should be on the City and County (Health Dept) website in the next day or two, hopefully, at http://www.ongov.net/health/documents/October2015Routes.pdf

Bikes vs Cars is a new movie that is now premiering at events around the world. I participated in funding its production through kickstarter and was excited to see it in a pre-release period a few months ago.
