In a reversal Lance Armstrong changed his choice backing New York City for the 2012 Olympics. The weather was pleasantly warm enough for me to cycle up to Central Park this morning to do a few laps. I heard that there would be a cycling event schedules and sure enough when I arrived the stands were set complete with a media blitz. Tour de France 7 time champion Lance Armstrong was scheduled to appear. I lapped around a couple of times warming up at a nice pleasant pace. While waiting for the man to arrive I struck up a conversation with a woman who was wearing a Sanchez-Metro jersey. When I told here that I was looking for a cycling club to join she let it be known that she was the Marie DeRosa membership chairman of Century Road Club Association. She explained to me the membership procedure. We were also both pleasantly surprised that were in the arts enabling the time to train.

Then Lance arrived and we watched the presentation. It was great to hear that the Texan was supporting the Olympics in 2012 in New York. I took some photos before heading around the park for another lap with Marie. I told her about how I had been introdued to cycling by my roommate David Weber who sold me his road bike. I biked close to 3600 miles in the Central Park last year.
