High Bridge Festival and Spiderman Ergs

This past Saturday New York City Parks hosted High Bridge Festival.  The festival celebrated the historic reopening of New York City’s oldest standing bridge.  Harlem River Community Rowing hosted an erg demonstration for this all around great event, so I got to spend some time watching future rowers take their first spin on the erg.  Our youngest visitor was three.  He stood in awe for what must have been an eternity for a three-year old.  He looked away only to call, “¡Mira!” to his mother.  He lit up, when it was finally his turn.   It was amazing!  It was really inspiring to watch children and adults take their first turn on the erg and to talk with former collegiate rowers who were ready to return to the sport.   The little guy in the last photo did refuse to try though…on the grounds that we didn’t have a Spiderman erg.  I told him rowing would make him stronger than a super hero.  He didn’t buy it.  _KER6453 _KER6468 _KER6492 _KER6514 _KER6533 _KER6551 _KER6582
