There and back Again

What can we say? We’re in Nyack just 27 miles away from NYC. A place we used to frequent on our other bikes, TC and Canny, when we lived in Manhattan. For those who don’t know, TC and Canny are thoroughbred versions of Trusty and Steed: taught, light and very fast racing machines.

So it was, after a short 26-mile ride from West Point, we arrived via an off-road trail along the Hudson River, with which Trusty & Steed coped admirably, at the Runcible Spoon in Nyack to reminisce and have our picture taken by Sierra.

After some great coffees, cupcakes and scones we cycled the remaining mile to our hotel, cleaned the bikes (it was raining again all day) and chilled for a while before setting out to the Thai House for our final Thai meal of the trip. Needless to say, it was the best Thai food we had had.

We can’t believe tomorrow will be our last day! Just one day left for the rest of you to follow Lisa, John & Sofia’s example and donate to MS – thanks guys.

  1. Wow. Utterly amazing-what a journey and a half. A big congrats to you both. Much love, Karen xxx

  2. Well, just 1 more day of riding. What am I going to do? No more entries in this blog after tomorrow. I am going to miss it. LOL

    Congrats on your accomplishment. I'm still home bound at my friend's house in South Carolina waiting for my left wrist to get a little stronger before I get on Alice again and start up our travels. Hopefully, it will not be fore long because I'm starting to get cabin fever.

    Take care,

    from your friend - the Cycling (Rolling) Rev
