Update: New York Cycling Event September 25, 2021
New York City Bike Accident Lawyers – The Herman team follows the Begin Spin 25 Mile course.
NEW YORK, NY, September 25, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – New York accident lawyer Glenn Herman, a prominent Manhattan personal injury attorney who is passionate about cycling and, according to his family, spends way too much of time watching The Tour de France, will ride alongside a five-person team, sponsored in part by his firm, Herman & Herman PC, personal injury attorneys, on the Escape New York charity bike ride. The hike takes place this Saturday, September 25. Glenn will be accompanied by his two adult sons and his brother who is also an avid cyclist.
Glenn started cycling in 2013, while looking for an alternative form of exercise after a back injury in 2010 that ended his days as an avid runner. Since then he has participated in numerous bike rides, tours and events.
The Escape New York ride has a long tradition in New York City, established 26 years ago and is managed and organized by the New York Cycle Club (NYCC). Due to pandemic lockdown restrictions, there was no Escape New York ride in 2020, leaving New York cyclists excitedly anticipating this year’s ride.
This year, Escape New York will donate its net proceeds to Kids Ride Club and I Challenge Myself, two New York-based charities that help at-risk youth, in addition to partnering with other nonprofits. .
The ride, which begins and ends at Sakura Park in Manhattan, offers participants a choice of six routes ranging from 25 miles to 125 miles. Each route takes cyclists out of Manhattan via the George Washington Bridge and through the peaceful and beautiful landscapes of Bergen County, New Jersey, and Rockland County, New York.
The Herman Law team will follow the Begin Spin 25 Mile course.
Glenn shares his experience participating in the hike for the past few years:
I have done this walk twice before. The 50 mile route and the 75 route. The 50 mile route was the first time I had done a solo bike tour of this distance. It turned out to be one of the three best rides of my life. Besides the espresso and pastry bar at the start and meeting some great people, the route was safe and well marked, the scenery was beautiful, the rest areas were well stocked with tasty (and yes nutritious) snacks, the volunteers were great and the festival at the end was an unexpected surprise. The people at the New York Cycle Club were cheering me on when I crossed the finish line. There was a live band playing. However, it was the filet mignon, roasted vegetables and farro (which I had never eaten before) that really took it up a notch. Not the usual bagels, bananas, and PBJ sandwiches you get at these things. The New York Cycle Club knows how to refuel you after a ride. I believe they change the menu every year. I did not look for this merry-go-round. Why spoil the surprise? Oh. Did I mention the Gelato Cart?
