Hello, @pgxc-flrc and @pgxc-high-noon!
We’ll be racing this Sunday at Bassett Park (359 Klein Rd, Williamsville, NY 14221), which is roughly a 2:45 drive. It’s a new course for us but apparently a common high school course. The course map illustrates where you should park.
The race starts at 11 AM, so we recommend arriving at 10 AM so you have time to pick up your bib from the race organizers, get a singlet if you need to borrow one, and warm up with your team before the race. We’ll have a tent marked by FLRC flags where you can leave your stuff.
Here’s the carpool plan:
Cornell: The main carpool will leave from its traditional location in the southwest corner of the Cornell B Lot. Plan to arrive at 6:45 AM. We’ll sort people into cars and leave at 7:00 AM sharp. If you plan to join this carpool, please reply to this post on the forum and indicate whether you can drive or would prefer to be a passenger. It would be helpful to have your phone number so we can communicate via text. 607-275-9557 finds me, and Tonya is 607-275-8383.
Downtown Ithaca: If you need a pickup from downtown, we may be able to arrange for a B-Lot carpool to pick you up as it goes through town. Please reply on the forum so we can coordinate and include your phone number.
Other areas: Folks from Cortland, Lansing, and Danby may wish to drive separately rather than coming into Ithaca first. That’s totally fine, but if you want to carpool with others in your area, reply here and we’ll see if we can match people up.
Team Stop for a Late Lunch
We’re planning to stop for a late lunch at Simply Crepes in Canandaigua. Simply Crepes is at 101 South Main Street, Canandaigua NY 14424. The food is always good, and if it’s warm, they have outdoor seating.
See you at the race! –Adam & Tonya
I will need to be a passenger and would prefer to come straight back after but would be willing to stop at the crepes place if more convenient.
I can ride or drive if need be. Bob W 607/229-2737

@amalia - I called the restaurant to ask about the vegan options. I learned that their gluten free/buckwheat crepes are vegan. I have eaten these many times, and they seem good to me. I also learned that they direct vegans to the Vegetarian Scramble Crepe. You can ask to have any of the default ingredients (such as scrambled eggs) disincluded. You can also add avocado, tofu, or impossible sausage. He said that the impossible sausage is vegan. He also said that the crispy red potatoes, which come with this dish (or as a separate menu item), are vegan except that the fryer is also used for meat. So, you could ask that they not be included, or be included in a separate dish and then give them to a friend to eat. (You can see this menu choice on the screenshot included here, with buckwheat crepe at the top and the Vegetarian Scramble option at the bottom.) If it is after 2pm, you have to ask for the AM menu, but they are cool with that.
You can also have the Simply Salad with strawberries made without cheese, and there is a fruit bowl option. So, it’s not a huge range of options, but it’s not impossible to have a meal. This is on the PM menu, but if it is before 2pm, you can ask for this menu.
After I hung up, I realized that he might have said that any of the salads could have their meat/cheese disincluded, but I’m not sure (see screenshot of menu below)
I would prefer a ride from downtown, if possible. Happy to stop for crepes, if that works for whomever I’m riding with.
If it looks like we may be low on vehicles, I can drive, but it means leaving my spouse without a car all day.
Wow you really did the legwork to find out about that!! Thanks! If other people in the carpool are stopping im happy to.
I can drive. See you at 6:45. Ouch!
In case anyone is wondering, Adam and I are working on sorting out a few specifics for the carpool tomorrow. If you are looking for a ride from downtown (Marie, Amalia, Jesse), we will be in touch about details later today.
Also, if anyone needs to text us directly or needs to get in touch tomorrow morning:
Tonya - 607-275-8383
Adam - 607-275-9557
I will meet the carpool in B lot at 6:45. I’m in for stopping for crepes on the way home
I can drive and pickup three others from downtown if that works.
I cannot stop for lunch.
Thanks for all the figuring!!! Greatly appreciated!
Here’s a look at the carpooling for Sunday morning. We have rides for everyone who indicated that they could not drive.
@mdoruska3, @Kushal_Kumar_Reddy, @HectorMarie, and @amalia, you should have a text message from me that each of you are on, so you can coordinate a carpool with Molly driving.
@CharlieF and @cfranck, we need one of you to drive for sure, so you can pick up Jorge. We might need both of you, and we’ll decide tomorrow at the B-lot.
@Bwalters, Adam and I think it is climate friendly that you have a Tesla, so you should drive.
@Dave_K and @jeanluc, we may need you to drive, and who drives may depend on who wants to more, or if you’d rather be in a Tesla.
@Swizbob is still sorting out his plan, but both choices I’ve been texting with him about look good.
If I didn’t mention your name and you’ve written into this thread to say that you are coming to the B-lot, you are a passenger.
See you at 6:45 at the B-lot and/or see you at the race!
Sorry for the delay. I can drive tomorrow but will prefer to be a passenger. I can get to the B lot and stop for crepes after the race.
