Rye is a moveable feast of activities this week. Here’s a look at the menu event-wise. The variety of the ten events listed is enough to get your head spinning. Curious about what’s up? Glance down and keep on reading.
Good news as the Rye continues its post-Tropical Storm Irene recovery. For the bikers who like to go nowhere: Rye YMCA Spinning Studio Classes resume today. Stationary bikes were moved to higher floors and were undamaged, and the Spinning Room has been almost completely restored after Blind Brook basement overflow except for a new floor expected to be installed by next week. But that won’t interfere with the Spinning Classes.
Heated Pa Cope Swimming Pool has been drained, cleaned, refilled and is also ready to go. But men’s and women’s lockers are still undergoing renovation. So boys and girls locker rooms must temporarily be shared with adults. Y recommends showering at home if possible, and that parents consider changing their kids into swim togs at home as well.
Also on the Y kiddy front: The Child Care room has reopened. But today’s classes will be held at the Rye Rec McDonald Building and Milton School, but will resume at the Y tomorrow. On all fronts: The nurse is in at the Y today, and the health pro from Greenwich Hospital will be available for a free screening from 9-11 a.m. to check your blood pressure and answer health questions.
