      A Revolutionary Idea: Nyack --> Stony Point State Park (revised)
      Dave Zornow
      Note the revised start time of 830a! In July 1779, Brigadier General Anthony Wayne led his troops in a daring attack on British forces at Stony Point. Almost 240 years later this Saturday, we'll attack a few hills and cruise along the river from Nyack Memorial Park to Stony Point State Park. The route is out and back along 9W to Stony Point. Total distance is about 30 miles.

      Meet up at Nyack’s Memorial Park at 8:30a (corner of Depew & Piermont Aves).

      You can download the Sign In.

      Remember to bring your helmet, water bottles and tire fixings. PAY ATTENTION TO THE FORECAST: It looks like the overnight storms will be over just about the time we are getting ready to ride. If it’s raining 30 minutes before ride time or if Sign In predicts severe storms during the ride, we’re not going to risk it.

      Pace & Terrain – Pace = B (about 15 mph). This is a no-drop ride.

      New City/Old Tappan Ride
      Stephen Brehl
      It's the old standard offering 38 or 28 mile options with very limited climbing. 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: 16 mph overall average, 18-22 on the flats.

      Total distance: about 38 miles with an option for 10 fewer miles.

      Route sheets are available at the start.

      Rain at the start will cancel the ride. If it rains later we'll get wet.

      Highlands Gran Fondo - Butler NJ*
      No Leader
      Leader Not Coming: The Highlands Gran Fondo showcases some of the best riding around. It’s hard to believe riding this good is located in such close proximity to the New York/New Jersey metropolitan area. The Highlands area is a 1,343 square mile region of Northern New Jersey which is noted for its scenic landscape and environmental importance. Much like this ride, the area is composed of rolling farmland, hilly ridgelines, and winding roads that weave up and down the lush green mountains. As you enjoy the diversity of the beautiful terrain and scenery, the route will take you through three counties and two states. As the loop progresses so will the elevation, the gran loop will gain 8,000 vertical feet. This event is sure to expose you to roads you never thought could be tucked away so close to one of the biggest metropolitan areas in the country. Routes: 35 miles, 55 miles, 100 miles. See website for details.
      Fee: $65 (35 mile), $100 (55 mile), $120 (100 mile), Fee increases after May 11th another $20 each ride and another $45 each ride after May 28th

      Rolling By The River, a Slow Roll Community cycling event in the Nyack river villages
      Dave Zornow
      Know someone who has a bicycle in your garage that they rarely ride? Invite them to join the RBC at Rolling By The River on June 2 at 2p for a Sunday afternoon "slow roll" cycling event when you can join your family, friends, and neighbors near the Nyacks and Piermont to get out and Roll Along The River.

      What's a Slow Roll? It's a bicycle ride for everyone. All ages (8 and up) and experience levels are welcome. The slow pace keeps the group safe and gives riders a unique perspective of our villages and their neighborhoods. It's a chance to socialize, meet up and ride safely as a group.

      The Rockland Bicycling Club is teaming up with local villages and the Edward Hopper House for Rolling By The River, the first of what hopefully will be regular "slow roll" community bicycle rides through the Nyack river villages and Piermont. It's a family friendly, group event intended to teach safe cycling practices while encouraging local residents to get some exercise with their friends and neighbors. We'll also share some factoids about local history; relay important community updates about cycling infrastructure; and hear about some ambitious open space plans, too.

      Ride Marshals Needed! Please sign up for this ride if you can help, and wear your RBC Jersey (if you have one) on June 2.

      Meetup at Upper Nyack Elementary School on June 2 at 2p. HELMETS ARE REQUIRED. Participants must sign an event waiver. Route is flat and about 3 miles round trip to Nyack Beach State Park with a social meet and greet at the Edward Hopper House Museum and Art Center on N Broadway in Nyack after the ride.

      If this proves popular future rides will be scheduled in the adjacent river villages on a regular basis.

      Illustration: American realist painter and Nyack native Edward Hopper used this bicycle with wooden wheels to pedal around the Nyack river villages and Piermont in the late 1800's. The bicycle is on permanent display at the Edward Hopper House. Illustratation by ©2019 Bill Batson.

      Join me for the last Bike Sunday (until September) on the Bronx River Parkway. Experience roads without any cars. We will meet up in the parking lot next to the parkway just east of the Westchester County Center. This ride is often very busy so expect to take extra time to park and meet up. Route is mostly full sun, so sun block is a good choice. Because of the popularity with families and children, we will have a casual pace. Route is fairly flat. Each circuit from White Plains to Scarsdale is about 13 miles. Expect to ride two circuits.

      The 55th Annual Ride to Montauk*
      No Leader
      Leader Not Coming: One of the reasons the Ride to Montauk is so popular is that it is one of the flattest rides in the entire area.
      We pedal on quiet back roads past mansions, the ocean, farms, windmills, and the most beautiful sections of the Hamptons. Whether you are a beginner or an expert, this is the ride for you! Start your day in Manhattan, Babylon, or Mastic Shirley and pick the distance that’s right for you -- 25 miles, 50 miles, 73 miles, 108 miles, or 150 miles. All routes end in Montauk, so even if your friends are pedaling a different distance, you can all meet up at a rest stop or at the finish for the post-ride party! Rain or Shine. Don’t forget that this ride is one-way -- it ends in Montauk, and you’ll need a way to get home again. You can get picked up by a friend, or you can take our Optional transportation home from Montauk after the ride for your bike and you: $65 - $200. You can NOT take your bike home on the train this weekend. (LIRR rules, and they mean it!)
      Fee: Prices start at $99 for the 25-mile route; $200 for all other routes.
