Four Days of Great Rides

Wow what an amazing weekend!

This past week Team Evesham participated in some great rides over four consecutive days.

On Thursday evening we had a 20 mile B ride and Friday was the weekly C/C+ ride with eight cyclists covering 30 miles through Marlton, Medford, Shamong, and Tabernacle.

On Saturday twelve Team Evesham members rode 50 miles  from Johnson’s Farm in Medford to Tuckerton in the fantastic Pedal for Promise charity ride which raises money to support the Urban Promise Academy in Camden.  A few team members even rode back  to Johnson’s making the ride a century!

Sunday, May 6th saw 28 team members in New York mingling with the masses. They participated in the annual 40-mile, traffic-free TD Bank Five Boro Bike Tour (a/k/a “Bike New York”). This is an absolutely amazing close-up tour of Manhattan and its surrounding boroughs. It is also America’s largest bike event with 32,000 participants this year. In addition many riders participate to raise money for a number of charitable causes including the Alzheimer’s Association and the JDRF, both of which we have Team Evesham members involved.

Even with the contingent in NYC, we still had over 50 riders in our weekly Sunday all-level ride! The route was a new one taking us out to Nixon’s with few turns and straight aways, avoiding the maze of roads in some of the developments in Medford.

In addition we had at least one of our team members, Chuck Nowicki, participating in the Blue Cross Broad Street Run. Way to go Chuck!
