Join me on this lovely ride that hugs the Hudson River as much as possible. It is a bit hilly, but NO DIRT (alas). Pace low 13's, or lower since this is more of a sightseeing ride. Cell 516-578-6229. Helmets, cell phones TURNED ON and good cheer required!
Non-technical carriage trails dirt and some gravel. A hybrid can do it, but knobby tires are better. The hike is rock scrambling. Wear good trail shoes or sneakers.

  • Crazy garden tour of Litchfield/Westchester
There're SIX private gardens open for public visit this special Saturday! Crazy, isn't it??? A quick glance at their locations, FIVE of them fits nicely into a tidy loop of 35 miles!! Their locations are "interesting": in that they're on roads that don't appear on the "usual" club rides! This will provide the perfect excuse to explore them! >>>>> That said, I'm not sure there's enough time to visit (and ENJOY) all 5 of them. Not to mention it'll get kind of expensive at $7 each. So, I had mapped a route that go by all 5 but with a short cut to do only 3. If you just want to ride in new road but not too keen on gardens, you can skip #3 and beyond. (the "3 garden" route is actually a minor modification of the Saugatuck loop I made last year and various leaders led a few times) >>>>> Lunch plan is to buy food at Wilton (mile 18, the half way point), then ride to garden #3 to have a picnic in the garden. >>>> After lunch, if you want to bee line for the car, take the shortcut. Those who wants more mileage or more gardens, follow the leader over the hills!!! Sign In (elevation: Sign In) WARNING: this is in the Litchfield county which is famous for its hills! Pay close attention to the elevation profile and know what you're getting into. From previous "garden tour" experience, all that walking around the gardens do take it out of your legs. too. So the seemingly short 35 miler can feel longer, and the hills harder. That said, the gardens are located in perfect distances from each other to serve as ideal rest stops as well as convenient re-group points! So, no worry about needing to keep up with the group. Just print a cue sheet and follow it to catch up with the group at the next garden...I mean next rest stop! ;-) Note though, route has many turns so it's easy to get separated from the group and you'll be on your own to navigate your way back. And last but not least, the route is on remote roads with no services. So make sure your bike is in good working condition (gears and brakes in particular). Oh, if you need to be home by 2? Forget about it.
We will visit one garden on June Road. Details to be updated.
