Sal Acosta ’84 recently bought two MIT Cycling jerseys: one for himself and one for his girlfriend Elizabeth Glick.
He’s director of operations for ABB, a power technologies company, in Baldwinsville, NY. Luckily for him, central New York State is blessed with great riding terrain—his favorite rides are around Onondaga Lake, Oneida Lake, and the Finger Lakes.
In early August Sal and Elizabeth will be doing a 6-day, 400-mile ride in the Lake Champlain area. If you’re interested, you can download the info sheet here and join them on what is sure to be a spectacular week of riding. And Sal notes that you’ll be able to spot them in their team kit.
Oliver Seikel (class of 1959, course XXI) completed an 808 mile ride from his home in Cleveland to MIT, arriving in time for his 50th class reunion this weekend. His two traveling companions rode to 50th reunions at Harvard (from Buffalo to Cambridge) and Columbia (from Cleveland to New York). Oliver’s route traced the Lake Erie shoreline to Buffalo, paralleled the Erie Canal to Albany, and then crossed the Berkshires, more or less following SR 9 to Cambridge.
On Friday, June 5, from 2-3 in the afternoon, the team will be hosting an open house at the wind tunnel for any alumni who are in town.
If you haven’t been to the wind tunnel before, it’s in Building 17, here.
Come see where MIT Cycling gets its mad time trialing skills! And where the infamous Der Uno monospoke aero wheel was concocted…
