  • Women's Instructional No-Drop Ride
All WCC women are invited this Saturday to the Giant Bikes No Drop Ride and Demo Day at Cycleworks White Plains. Please come out for an instructional, no-drop ride. During the ride a professional, female instructor will cover subjects such as proper gearing, braking, body positioning, and other skills to improve your confidence and efficiency on the bike. The ride is completely free and all levels are welcome and encouraged to attend. If you are interested in trying a new bike, you can call and reserve a new Giant in your size for the ride. I don't own a Giant, but they actually do have one of the most extensive lines of women's specific bikes. Arrive between 8:30 and 8:45 am if you reserve a bike so you can be fitted to it and bring your own helmet, shoes, and ID. Call 914-831-3181 to reserve a bike or if you have questions. Sign In

  • Tri-County Century or Metric.
A classic century from the Bob Beaumont collection. As spring begins to take hold in the northern counties, this will be a great ride to experience the changing conditions and view the flora coming back to life as we pass through. This route takes us north on familiar roads through Putnam and into southern Duchess. Up to Lake Carmel, across to White Pond, then down Gipsy Trail and Peekskill Hollow with a climb up Lover's Lane before heading back south down Hunterbrook. If you prefer the metric century, you can start at the Goldens Bridge A&P around 10:00 AM and either ride south on 22 to meet us or ride north on 22 and wait for us at the Swan Deli - our first refueling stop. Sign In
We'll ride from Mahopac to Brewster, and then return on the Putnam Trailway, and go around Lake Mahopac. A great entry-level ride, and a a good way to get in shape for the season.

Modest length ride at mid-level B+ pace. Should be back before 12:30 so you can have the rest of the day freed up. It's probably more hilly than RwGPS indicates. Quick break at mile 25. Group will stay together by soft pedaling at tops of climbs...try not to stop altogether. It will be an absolute requirement that you have a cue sheet or GPS download BEFORE the ride starts or you will be asked to not participate on this group ride. Riders at the front MUST know the next turn, or you will be asked to ride at the back for the remainder of the ride. Anyone off the front is on their own. Start is prompt at 9:00am. Sign In

If you can't have your tush tuned, or just don't want to, come on this ride. See Cue Sheet #581. This ride starts at the Elementary School, not the Tennis Courts, but is otherwise identical to the Cue sheet except for the first and last 0.4 mile. This is a favorite among members for the riding along Long Island Sound and some nice rural roads. Overall pace expected to be about 14.0 mph.
For some club members, a tune-up is all their tushies need. For others, like us, a full overhaul will make each tush much better. So we'd like you to join us on this slow C ride through the not-quite-yet verdant hills of northern Westchester. Slow C means we're looking toward an average pace of 12 mph. If you're a faster C rider, but can either read cue sheets or know the territory, you're welcome to join us and ride ahead. If you're a D rider, this route is kinda hilly, so it might be too much for some. Please arrive by 10:10am for a prompt start at 10:30am. Also, there's only a pit stop, no food on the route, so bring enough pocket food. And print out a copy of the attached cue sheet and add our cell numbers (see listing) or plug them into your phones. See our slow C friends on Sunday.
