  • Larry's Dutchess Fall Foliage Ramble
A beautiful ride to Pine Plains in Northern Dutchess over hill and dale. Nice roads, little traffic and terrific fall colors. Nice lunch at cafe at 34 miles. Bring 2 water bottles and a snack. Route up is hillier than the way back. I hope to average between 14-15mph. We'll bbq at the end for those who can stay.
