Riding round - met a Pro Mountain Biker

Submitted by Bob Thomas on Tue, 08/22/2006 - 10:13pm.

Lucky me - tonight riding home toward Morris from Oneonta by way of the Otsdawa I met Meggan Flaherty who rode this summer and last as a Pro Mountain Biker for Bicycle John's Serious Cycling.

She was out logging some miles on a nice Cannondale road bike when I saw her.

She has a blog about her exploits on the Pro Mountain Bike Circuit - check it out at:


She made it to the Time Trial on 8/23 and recorded a great time - even though it was only about the third time trial that she had ever attempted. See how all the cyclists fared at that time trial at:

Canal Classic Photo and Results

Submitted by Bob Thomas on Mon, 08/21/2006 - 2:20pm.

Nice Photo of Emory Creel, Rich Karaz, Peter Martin and Tope. Taken August 13th 2006 at the Canal Classic atop of Bartow Hill, overlooking the Mohawk Valley. (Roughly, a 4 mile climb.)

Photo shot by Pam Karaz. Full Size Photo

Rich finished 10th, Emory 12th and Peter 17th out of about 125 riders. We chased okay...but a few guys in our group after the hill didn't know how to paceline. Next year we go over the top first and take the win!

6-21-06...........The first day of Summer brought amazing weather and incredible riding. 4 CNYCers showed up for the Wednesday night group ride on a mission. Each year we make a couple of attempts at a new "Gilbertsville Ride Record." It's a 25 mile loop with one big climb, some rollers and a decent amount of flats. 2 years ago 8 riders posted the fast time of 1 hour 10 minutes and 11 seconds. Last night Brett Sherwood, Ad Stabel , Peter Martin and Scott Stoddard tore a minute off that time.

The new best time stands at 1 hour 9 minutes and 10 seconds. We had great riding conditions and worked the paceline perfectly.

CNYC Wins at Hollenbeck

Submitted by PM on Fri, 05/26/2006 - 4:29pm.

Sunday May 11th saw record crowds and great racing for the annual Hollenbeck's Spring Classic. CNYC was well represented in the Master's race. With 4 strong riders in the field things were looking good. After the initial speedy run to the first climb a group of roughly 15 crested the first hill. With a good mix of clubs in the break everyone started to work the move. At times it looked like the chasing pack was about to catch the break but strong tempo riding by CNYC's Rich Karaz in the middle section of the course established a lead that was not to be challenged. Hollenbeck's short but steep wall brought the lead group down to 8 riders.
