A group of 7 NY Bellas and a few potential Bellas, including a Junior, met up in the Hills of Fabius, NY to play in the snow, exchange work horror stories, eat spicy vegetarian chili, cornbread, Bill Stiteler’s famous, fabulous raspberry brownies, blueberry cake with whipped cream, sundry other sweets and pound down beers. (Actually 3 beers were had among the entire group, and there was no pounding down to speak of.)


This is Jan-o on her big 5-0. Many of NY Bellas are in the highly desirable age group of 50+…

The upcoming cycling season holds a variety of goals for the NY Bellas: a first triathlon, a longer triathlon, working on consistency, getting stronger thru in base miles, improving time trialing, going back to Paris to do the Paris-Brest-Paris randonneur ride and just not letting age and outside distractions prevent us from having fun on the bike and with the greatest group of sporty women around.

So, we’re hoping to stay in some sort of shape for the coming cycling season, although, winter is "THE" sport season for some of us, especially now that more Bellas are taking up speed skating*!
