"Look over there," the Canadian blurts, pointing toward pulsing blue NYPD lights. "There it is." He's right: Hundreds of black and lime green Giordana jersey clad cyclists are streaming up a closed two lane stretch of Riverside Drive. A runway configuration of flares leads us onto the bridge's lower ramp, past an Escalade whose VIP owner is at the hatch, Nike Roshe Run Womens Grey hurriedly donning a heart rate monitor strap and red BMC team jersey. It's 15 time Tour de France veteran George Hincapie, who decided on a whim that a Queens born bike racer shouldn't miss this.

Soon we're jammed onto a three lane wide stretch of the GWB, a sunrise clan of more than 2,000 cyclists in a how cool is this reverie. A Harlem gospel singer named Arlethia belts the national anthem and helmet cams blink green above heads. Many ogle small production Italian frames next to them. I feel my muscles steeling. Whatever happens over the next six or seven hours, I know something I didn't 15 minutes ago: why I want to be here. This might be the finest looking gruppetto ever to hit New York. What I still don't know is whether I belong.

´╗┐How to Ride a Gran Fondo

My plan to carefully calibrate my energy output is already kaput. I can't find the Gran Fondo New York start, which is hard to fathom since it's on the massive, 14 lane George Washington Bridge.

the format, which mixes a mass start and timed racing with bagel stocked rest stations. Is it a race or is it a ride?

When I spoke to Gran Fondo New York organizer Uli Fluhme prior to the May 8 event, he did his best to explain the unexplainable. The fondo is a robust, full bodied, pro flavored event that treats sporting dilettantes like something better, he said. The buzz worthy GW Bridge start was just the tip of the proverbial cannoli. In bringing a gran fondo to the Big Apple, Fluhme used one of the grandest of the 300 Roshe Run Galaxy Black

A chip time error shows me finishing 33rd overall last year. I just wish is wasn't an error, but in all honesty, it took me a good bit longer!

He wanted to go Maratona big, or not at all. He held a press conference last spring in Milan to invite, well, Italy.

Hey ToddIt pretty much sums up the ride for us as well. Especially the beginning with the Brit and Canadian. We have the Vancouver to Whistler GF on Sept 10 2011 and Im training a little harder than the "off the couch" program. The ride has grown by 2000 riders this year, for a total of 6000 riders and the event sold out months ago! If you interested in riding the GF here, you are more than welcomed to stay with us. We have live in Whistler. Im sure a GF ticket can be found for Roshes Run For Girls

My only consolation is that I'm not alone. I just left some Brit dead ended in a vacant lot, and I'm presently with a guy from British Columbia who actually practiced getting to the start yesterday and is lost for a second time. A comparative pro at fondos, he is preternaturally calm, having done Whistler's last year "pretty much right off the couch." He means that as a casual sentiment, of course in 100 miles, alpine climbs, it's all good, eh? But I take no comfort in that, even though I've been training for months. Maybe it's because I'm a soloist with reservations about big group riding, and in particular big group racing. Maybe it's because whatever is in everyone else's epic ride day DNA isn't in mine. Or maybe it's because when you can't even find the start line a boisterous crowd hailing from 50 odd countries naturally wonder if you belong at all.

Race info isn't up yet for 2012, and I guess this isn't a typical gran fondo since the registration is limited (due to restrictions of the number of riders allowed on the Blue Ridge Parkway), but if you happen to get a spot, you're welcome to stay with me and my family.

Like many who follow cycling, I'd heard about the fondo craze, and like many others I wasn't sure what to think. I was seduced by the evocative name (the Italian gran fondo translates roughly to "big ride") and old country roots, but uncertain about Nike Roshe Run Shoes - Black/Cool Grey/White
