News of upcoming Races in New York Tuesday, February 24, 2004
I’m writing to let you know about two upcoming races in New York — the Grant’s Tomb Criterium on Saturday, March 20 in Manhattan and the Bear Mountain Spring Classic Sunday, May 9 in Harriman State Park.
The Grant’s Tomb Criterium, put on by the Columbia University Cycling team, is on a really fun course near campus with reserved parking for racers. There are fields for category 3/4, women’s 1-2-3 and women’s 4, as well as collegiate riders. The women’s category 4 race is part of the Aquafina NY State Women’s 3/4 Series.
Details on this race are online at http://www.columbia.edu/cu/cycling/2004_Race_Flyer.htm.
