GFNY 2016

I stuck with my usual traditions. Friday and went to packet pickup and grabbed my jersey and number. At packet pickup I had the honor of meeting olympic medalist Nelson Vails.

After packet pickup I went home and began my prep. I charged my di2 and my garmin edge 1000

Saturday I went to my local bike shop Crank Works Cycles in Nyack NY. they gave my bike a final check before the ride. Saturday evening, I packed the car, bike, shoes,,helmet etc.

Sunday Morning I left the house at 5am and was in the Fort Lee Municipal lot by 5:30. I hopped on the bike and headed across the GWB. I hit some traffic exiting the gwb and arrived at the bridge entrance at 5:50. The entrance was backed up with riders trying to get through GFNY TSA. I didn’t get into,the starting corral until 6:50. It wasmkind of nice cutting it close and not having to sit on the cold GWB.
