Back in the Borough: Cycling in Central Park (In 93-degree Heat, No Less … But Who’s Counting)

Hi friends,

Chris and I had booked a couple of bicycles through Travelzoo back around Memorial Day weekend, and only just this weekend got the chance to use them. So we picked up some coffees, took the 2.5-mile walk through the park to Broadway Bicycle and cashed in our vouchers.

The park was bumpin’ on Saturday! Despite the heat and humidity, people were out in spades. They were running, walking, biking, roller blading, playing instruments and singing. Here’s a bit of what we saw:

^^ Who knew there was a 6 1/2 Ave?!

^^ I seriously forgot how many hills there are in Central Park. I had to take a break about 3/4 of the way through.

^^ Chris climbed the Harlem hills twice. I only had the stamina to go at them once. So instead I cut them off the second time round and waited for him at the bottom to take photos.

After our 13-mile ride (for Chris…mine was about 12 miles since I cut off the hills at the end), we headed over to Luke’s Bar & Grill on 3rd Ave. to load up on their super scrumptious Maine Lobster rolls.

Bis bald, friends! Hope your Saturday was as lovely as ours was!
