The Inn at Cooperstown

CNYC would like to say "thanks" to Marc K. from The Inn at Cooperstown.

http://www.innatcooperstown.com/

They have generously donated the funds so that the first 125 racers at the CYLRR will receive a free pair of Verge socks. CNYC prides itself on low cost racing. We try to keep entry fees as low as possible while still putting on quality events. Without the support of cycling friendly sponsors like The Inn it would not be possible. Please take a moment and visit their website. If you need a room the night before CYLRR give The Inn at Cooperstown a call. It's a great place to stay before the race or any time of the year.

Chief Joseph Brant Bicycle Regatta - ride from Cooperstown to Bainbridge

No registration needed. No services provided except the company of fellow cyclists along the route.

Event details and maps

History

The Joseph Brant Bicycle Regatta was the brainchild of, among others,
Michael Millner, a New York City escapee who moved to Oneonta in the spring
of 1975. He was most impressed with the General Clinton Canoe Regatta, that
being the area's major outdoor event and a source of great pride to the
hosting communities. His desire to participate in the weekend's excitement,
however, was stymied by the fact that he could neither paddle nor swim, being

For the last few years racers at the CYLRR and BVTT have been enjoying Chobani Yogurt as a post race snack. It's tasty, good for recovery and a super local business. I eat a Chobani Yogurt almost every day ! "Nothing But Good."

Adam Yauch Dies.....Check Your Legs Goes On

Many of might think the "Check Your Legs RR" was named to represent an early season test of form.
As in I'm going to check my racing legs to see how I'm riding ? Well yes and no. The inspiration for the name was the 1992 Beastie Boys Album "Check Your Head."

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Check_Your_Head

Just recently Adam Yauch ( MCA ) passed away. The man may have left us....but the music and CNYC RR will live on. Thanks Adam for the fun and inspiration.

USPP World Championships TT

The last USPP TT of the year coincided with the Elite Mens Time Trial in Denmark. No medals were given out for the USPP event. But we estimated that if Tony Martin would have ridden our TT this evening he would have finished in a time of 31:30. You gotta be fast if you want to beat Otsego County riders. Better luck next year Tony.

Thanks to all the riders that showed up and raced this year. Thanks as always to Fran and Neil Toombs.
See you all in the Spring for the next TT.

2011 Black Fly Challenge

Words by Richard Serton Photos by Pam Karaz

CNYCers Rich Karaz, Steve Gates and Richard Serton kitted up this weekend for the 16th running of the Black Fly Challenge - a 40 mile, point-to-point race in the Adirondacks. The course offers a mixture of asphalt, dirt roads and even some gnarly singletrack towards the finish. This year's race drew over 350 entrants on both mountain bikes and cyclocross rigs. One or two tandems may have even been spotted at the starting line. The two Rich's were both on cross bikes, deciding to trade comfort for speed.
