Muggy and Peter..

Muggy taking a day off, and Peter is back home in New York for his annual vacation from Denmark.


He actually rides...


Always good to see him in the park. Check out his website, he'll probably promote more races next year.


Only person I know that smiles while running, life is good!

Hard Core..

I just had to put these pics up, check the rest of them

This is my favorite

Richard Rosenthal..

Another interesting Character in the New York City cycling scene. I'm sure some of you know him or know of him.

Here's a picture of Richard, 65 years and 10 months, on his solo, unsupported ride from Milan to Zurich fourteen months ago that went across seven major Swiss passes:

In his own words:

As a rider, I didn't start riding until I was forty years old. I'm a truly, really terrible uphiller. I can't get up driveways or out of potholes. Notwithstanding that, I ridden across all but, I think, four paved Alp passes over 2000 meters in all of Austria, Italy, France, and Switzerland. When anyone thinks to express awe or admiration at this, I insist they understand all it takes is: the will, the time, and a low enough gear.

Creator of the saying, "One Less Car," now in use by anti-car or, at least, pro-cycling advocates worldwide.

The person credited by former DoT Commissioner Lucius Riccio with being singlehandedly responsible for the curb cut onto the walkway leading to the GWB ramp.

Former president of the NYCC and three-year program director. One of movers of the law suit against the city for the Park's Dept. having imposed a 15MPH speed limit on bikes.

Past columnist on cycling for MetroSports/NYPublished on cycling in: The New York Times, Newsday, International Herald Tribune, Bicycle Guide, Bicycle Retailer & Industry News, Bicycling, Cyclist, VeloNews, et al. Multi-year leader/organizer of the contingent of cyclists accompanying disabled marathoners.

Jersey designer.

Created advertising for Basso, Bell, Campagnolo, Continental, Fuji, Havnoonian, Kreitler, and others in the bike industry.

That's me pulling on my mountain bike.. Unfortunately, I ran out of Gas, I mean Gears.. Can't wait till I get my bike fixed.
Luis, thanks for the pic.


A runner turned cyclist, she's been running for years and saying hi to people going the opposite direction without knowing them. Hopefully, I'll get everyone names and story by the end of the year.

Roberto, the Architech

He lives in NY and Peru, and he split his time almost 50/50. He's heading back to Peru at the end of the month and will be back in Spring. Have a good trip and see you next year.

Something tells me that...

they hate Paul Levine!


She's not in her usual cycling jersey, so I didn't recognize her at first. She's going to Beirut to Document the Marathon there, wish her the best!


Another regular in the park, I need to work on my cloudy day shots.

Jose in street clothes

Racing season is over, so he's just working out in the gym till next season.

Doug, the New Michael

Michael should be in Kona for the Triathlon, so Doug took over the job of pulling the pack around in Central Park, look at him opening a gap! Damn! this man is STRONG!!

Susan, a trooper

She had an accident three weeks ago, she suffered three cracked ribs and a collapse lung, and she is already back!! what a woman!

Michael Levine, the actor.

You have probably seen him at in a TV show at some point in your life, he has appear in shows like Law and Order, and the sopranos. His first love is classical theater, and he has race bikes for years. He has also taught me to be a better rider through the years, I'm still a relatively new road rider compare to this seasoned veteran.

Great guy! I'm sure you will recognize him without his helmet and his cycling gear. He goes by the stage name of Michael Garfield. Check out his movie Slugs.

The GWB is open for Cyclist, I think??...

Not sure, if it was open due to the MS ride only, but there is this guy standing at the end of the bridge impeding traffic, I'm sure you have seen him in the park before.

The Impedor! Not a real word in the English Dictionary, but it is in this Blog.

Central park Photo Scavenger hunt

My team, number 11, from left to right, Jai, Erin, Me, Janis and Renee. We didn't win, because the contest must have been Rigged!! But we all had a good time. Next time we'll make sure to bribe the judges.

BTW, the basic rules was the all member of the team had to be in the picture, any part of the body counts, hence the finger(s).
