George Washington Bridge

It was another fantastic weekend with my love Allison Wong. We raced as a team (his & her category) in the New York Gran Fondo. They gave us an incredible route featuring five brutal hills. The start on the George Washington Bridge was surreal. It was wet and foggy with low visibility. It even rained on us for about 20 minutes shortly after. Then we started the mountains. Bear Mountain was the featured climb (4 miles 1200 feet) Stunning views awaited us upon our climb up. The sun also finally burned out the clouds. Then it was perfect cycling weather all the way to the finish. 101 miles with 8500 feet of climbing were the final stats of the race. I’m already looking forward to our next adventure. #crazyinlove #gfny #bearmountain #bunnylove #livetoride #ridetolive #cannondale #adventuresofallisonandshaun

About Us

This site is a collection of race reviews, ride reports, and musings on life. It focuses on my love of the outdoors, primarily triathlon, cycling, and running, with some training, traveling, and race-cations thrown in.  I race year round, and almost every week in the warmer months.

I hope these race reviews and reports serve as a resource to athletes everywhere about which races to add to your bucket list and which ones to just plain avoid altogether.
