- 10AB40New City/Old Tappan SpinStephen BrehlJoin us for a casual ride together. Warmer weather means we're going to try to get outside at a friendly pace. It's winter miles that matter, so we're going to take it easy and just get some time on the bike. We'll start at 10:00 in the hope that the rain will be over and the roads will have dried.No rides in Rockland are completely flat, but this has no epic climbs. Starting in New City, we take Strawtown/Sickletown Roads to Pearl River. Over to Rivervale Road and Old Tappan Road in NJ, and Western Highway back to West Nyack. Old Mill to Valley Cottage. Rockland Lake via Lake Road and then back to New City.We'll regroup at a couple of easily missed turns and at the top of the one significant climb.
The ride starts at David's Bagels in New City. The store is located at 64 North Main Street, next to Shoprite. If you drive to the ride there's plenty of parking. Please be considerate and leave the prime spaces in front of the stores open.
Average speed: 14-16 mph overall average, 16-20 on the flats.
Total distance: about 38 miles with an option for 10 fewer miles.
Check the link below, or route sheets are available at the start.
Rain at the start will cancel the ride. If it rains later we'll get wet.
