Don has pretty much decided not to ride tomorrow as there is little or no interest. Another time :)

I would love to ride to Owego, but not sure if I'll be able to ride back home. I plan to have my long bike ride tomorrow... but not sure where I want to go.

I'll probably ride sometime in the morning... and then maybe drive to Owego... I have been quite spontaneous lately...

Sounds like Sunday is going to work out okay :)

We will meet at 1 p.m. at Marvin Park in Owego. If you need directions, please ask!
I will be bringing plates, plasticware, tablecloths, and a cooler of water. Please bring a dish to pass. We will plan on eating at 1:30 p.m.

If you have any other questions, ask me :) Don and I will be coming in my white minivan with handicapped plates. Pretty easy to find me ;)

Look forward to seeing you then!

I would love to meet up with everyone at Owego! Marvin Park is a great spot. What time of day was everyone thinking? Sunday the 26th is open for me until evening. I am just beginning my journey, so meeting everyone would be a great inspiration to me!

I could do a bike ride on the 26th (I hope by then the surgeon will have cleared me for road cycling).

I'm not available on the 25th.

Never, ever, EVER give up!

Yep, heading there to cancel it officially. If the weather shapes up for a ride on Sunday I'm still open to a 4 Corners - Owego bicycle ride. Folks can either post here or SparkMail me if you're interested in this.

Sounds like it's back to the drawing board!

I like the plans and ideas...just have to find the right time for everything to come together!

I'm open to a smaller gathering of cyclists interested in doing 4 Corners to Owego & back on Sunday May 22nd if anyone wants to still move forward with those plans...assuming Mother Nature will cooperate! :-)

Major goof on my part!

The bike club is heading out for a memorable ride around Skaneateles Lake on the 21st...providing the weather allows!

We can either shift to Sun. the 22nd or you all can enjoy yourselves on the 21st.

Of course BOTH days may be rained out...ugh!

OAkley COrners State park is off 38B..you make a left onto Dutchtown road and follow it out. there is no picnic tables other than your lap.. IF you don't mind hiking to a small clearing around a pond.. there's enough of an area we can set up..But it is a little bit of a hike. and there are no bathrooms other than mother nature. :)

MArvin park looks like a good idea.

Or if we were thinking of it.. We can bike from Biglots.. down 434..take the crossover to 17c..come back up 17 C and bike to west endicott park.. Bathrooms.. picnic area... and swing sets for the kids.

There is a small park on 17c on the other side of Owego - Marvin Park... It is across the street from Price Chopper (next to the Tioga Field Grounds)

Oakley Corners is off of 38B? I don't think I recall seeing it - never been there.

We still have a teensy bit of time beforehand...but perhaps we should start thinking of a Plan B...? Would like to aim for somewhere around the Owego area for the benefit of members over in that neck of the woods.

FYI - The Park may not be open that day... I just got the notice that the 2nd Annual Go the Extra Mile for PWS fundraiser was moved to the Glendale Park in Endicot for May 22nd. It will have to be checked with the Town Supervisor to see if the park will be open.

As of yesterday, one of the oval 10' x 15' culverts that run under the road where the Little Nanticoke Creek enters the Susquehanna is crushed and the integrity of the other two is compromised. They have made some temporary repairs... but haven't heard for long term repairs.

I am not sure if Hickories will be open after seeing these photos... the result of last week's flooding.

Might have to double check with the town supervisor to see if the park will be open. Heard that the creek that flows down the center of the park caused some damage and there are 2 BIG trees in the creek.

It's a tad hillier, but it may be quieter to take the 17C route instead of 434...I'm open to either.

Just an FYI type thing... that same weekend is the Tioga Terrace Garage Sales... so route 434 in Apalachin where the Terrace is will be busy... Ride carefully!

I have a tough decision to make if I want to go.. Last year I got my treadmill at the garage sales. This year I am looking for something to add to my "GYM"... lol.

Bringing tablecloths, plasticware, paper napkins, and paper plates. Also a cooler of bottled water. I have had some people ask me for suggestions on what to bring. As soon as you decide what you're bringing, please post to me or here so we don't end up with 5 of the same dishes ;) Thanks!

Sounds like fun, thanks for planning! I'm going to continue to follow this but may be a last minute decision. I can't seem to commit to much these days as I have been so busy with school etc. That will be my last weekend before my summer session starts too.
I'm assuming families are coming? Hope I make it.

Sounds like a plan.. If DW wants to hang at the Park.. you and some of the FL team if they want to cycle to 4 corners with you.. You can meet me there.. We'll give JOhn the meetup info so he can pass it on to others and then meet us down there :)

Looks like the race is on Sunday the 22nd and roughly runs from 10 - 1. So if we need to switch from Sat. to Sun. we might want to plan to meet around 1 when things begin to break up. Those riding bikes could meet @ noon to get started.

Location could be a bit tricky as it might be difficult to predict what is free that day. I plan to arrive earlier with DW and cycle back to 4 corners. So perhaps the best way to be specific is to set up a phone relay as I could call some folks to let them know where we are set up and certainly I can let the cyclists know when I catch up @ 4 Corners.

Sounds like a plan!

Don

PS: How about I invite our "neighbors" in the Finger Lakes and Southern Tier SparkTeams? I think Owego is nicely situated in the middle of these areas.

i agree.. And i for those of us who want to bike ride and need a food transport. I can have John at Big Lots with a cooler or whatever so that way everything gets to where it needs to be.. Not sure how crowded Hickories is going to be on the 22nd with that race there.. I guessing alot. then we'd need to decide WHERE in HIckories on the 21rst we'd want to meet???

Oh that would be cool...John's helping hands for food transport!

Another member SparkMailed a preference for the weekend of 21st / 22nd also.

So those wanting to do the ride can meet in the Big Lots parking lot and those passing on that could just meet at Hickories.

Perhaps we can set the date for the 21st and have the 22nd as our Plan B alternative rain date...? This might be the safest way to plan.

Let's hear from some others...!

I"m in for the 21rst/22nd. Can do the bike ride as well. Here's a thought.. If we start at the Big Lots in the 4 corners in Vestal. John could be there for anyone who needs to leave there dish to pass with us and can take it to Hickories. :)

Also something to consider. The Prader Willi 5k is on the 22nd at Hickories: sites.google.com/site/extramile4pws/

I'd like to start planning for a SparkRally at Hickories Park sometime during May. We're way past due to offer a gathering more convenient to those living on our western border and even beyond!

If possible I'd like to include a bike ride from Four Corners to Owego via 434 and back. That would be a kind & gentle 18 mile round trip. We could either bring a dish to pass, which might be clunky via bike, or consider buying things in Owego for a pot-luck lunch at the park.

In May we have Sat. / Sun. on the 7th / 8th, 14th, 21st / 22nd and 28th / 29th. I took the 15th out as that is the Binghamton Bridge Run and we'll be getting together for THAT special day (hoping non-running SP members can come cheer us on! woo hoo!). The 28th / 29th may not work as it is the Memorial Day weekend.

What do folks think?
