      Sybil Ludington 1/2 ride
      Bruce Reisdorf
      In 1777 , 16 yr old Sybil Ludington of Ludingtonville , NY received a text that the British army were in Danbury and heading west. She knew that they would be delayed especially if they stopped at Trader Joes on Mill Plain Road (to pick up some tasty orange chicken and the free samples in the back next to the produce) She knew she needed to warn her father, Col Henry Ludington and the townspeople about the upcoming "British Invasion". So she saddled her horse, filled her saddle bag with records of The Beatles, The Who, The Moody Blues and The Stones and set out. She knocked on doors all night on her 40 mile route and handed out the records so the people would be prepared for the invasion. She even put up white signs along her route - I counted at least 13. We will ride along part of her route, through Ludingtonville and past her statue in Carmel.
      Rest stop is at Lou's diner next to Speedway in Carmel.

      Armonk to Pointless + Party!!!
      Barry Faust
      THE PARTY: YOU ARE INVITED TO A PARTY at my house (a 10-minute drive from the Crittenden ride start) following the ride. If you can’t make the ride, but can make the party, you’re welcome to come. The party will begin around 1:30PM. We’ll have food and refreshments. If you plan to attend, please send me an email (so I have an approximate headcount): Sign In … and I’ll send you my home address. The official excuse for the party is to celebrate birthdays within a couple of weeks before or after the party date. Those of you willing to admit a birthday in that timeframe, please let me know.
      I encourage OTHER RIDE LEADERS to post rides that begin/end not too far from Armonk/Mt Kisco, and INVITE YOUR RIDERS TO ATTEND THE PARTY - just ask them to follow the above instructions.

      ..................................................................................................................................................................................................................
      THE C RIDE: We’ll ride some pleasant roads through Greenwich with a break in Old Greenwich at Upper Crust Bagel. My planned pace is between 13.0 and 13.5 and I’ll be re-grouping to keep folks together. A relatively modest amount of climbing at about 2000 feet over 41 miles, which comes out to 49 feet per mile. Sherwood followed by King Street is the worst of the climbing (on the way back) – I will regroup/break at the top of Sherwood. No big hills the last 5+ miles of the route. The WCC Club RideWithGPS link is: Sign In I’ll bring cue sheets. Please be at the Crittenden Middle School parking lot by 8:45AM to sign in and hear the safety talk in time to roll at 9:00AM.
