Where in the Bronx will you be? I'm in Morris Park.
I kind of figured there would not be many options for scenic roads, but thanks for the suggestions.


I will be going to the hunts point area. Today they told me I will be working from noon to 8 PM, which means I might get lucky and find NO traffic, ehhh

hope to join in a ride and I hope I can manage to go to the Ear sometime soon. I end work at around 8 PM... maybe it's a tad to late-o?

I know they've cleaned the place up a bit, but if you have enough money, you should have no problem getting lucky in hunt's point.

Come to the ear, we're usually there late.

Morning Everyone

Does anyone know of a parking lot in mid-town Manhattan that's bike freindly? Also, I'd like to come to the Ear tonight. Anyone going. I'd like to introduce myself. I'm riding a yellow GS with a bio-hazard sticker on the right side bag.

Welcome!

Dunno about moto parking in midtown but we usually have a pretty good showing at the Ear. Here's the thread

Just an FYI, I was at a parking garage on 77th St between 1st and 2nd and I beleive I heard the attendant say a space for a bike was $165 a month.... I might be wrong but that's what he said.

That's cheap considering they quoted me $115 for the one next to my apartment building in the Bronx.

Thanks for the input. I am looking for something daily. I have a house upstate NY in Hillsdale and I leave straight from work on Friday. I used to park at a gararge on 52nd and 8th for 10 bucks. I was hoping for something like that around 37th and 7th. What time does The Ear start to get busy?

There's a garage on 33rd and 8th (north side on 33rd, west of 8th Ave) that accepts motos but they're pricey.

Most guys roll in around 7-8pm at the Ear.
