Saturday, August 23

An Endurance ride for those of us who need more miles on the legs before the GA next week! Two stops, relatively easy terrain, though we have all heard that one before. Print your own cue. Sign In
It's flat, it's fifty, the "fast" is up to us. A somewhat early, local ride for the time-constrained. Pre-specified re-grouping locations, so that you can either charge ahead off the front, or hang back with the peloton. Print out cue sheet #262 in the Cue Sheet Library, version 11/16/2010. Objective is to be back at our cars by noon, but not an absolute necessity.
****** NOTE that at 2 PM on Fr 8/22 I modified the route slightly after mile 27 for just a few miles to avoid coming back through "downtown" Poughkeepsie. Please load your Garmins with Sign In or the corresponding cue sheet from RWGPS. If you already loaded the previous version (routes/5718390), no big deal, it's different only for about 4 miles until we get to The Walkway Over the Hudson, then it is identical. ******* ******* The route starts from Beacon and is based on April Tam's 3 Bridges route. We cross the Hudson 4 times (west over Beacon-Newburg, east over Mid-Hudson Bridge, west over Walkway Over the Hudson, east over Newburg-Beacon Bridge). The two North and South legs of the route will be in Ulster Cty on the west side of the Hudson, and we will also cross into Poughkeepsie and ride through the Vassar campus before starting back. See route at Sign In. Terrain is moderate, but there are a couple of solid hills. Total elevation (rough estimate) will probably be around 3,000 feet and this will be a "smell the roses" leisurely ride, targeting 14.5 to 15 mph average. Print hardcopy cue from RWGPS if you need one. About 45 minutes drive to Beacon Train Station from Westchester. Food stop in Poughkeepsie or around Vassar, around mile 27 to 28. Leader cell# day of ride (914) 393-0182. Wet roads or 40% chance of precipitation before 2 PM cancels the ride (look here for update by 7:30 AM on Saturday if weather is iffy).
I love this route! Beautiful horse farms, little travelled roads, just a half mile of good hardpack, and a spin through the newly paved Ward Pound Ridge. Cell 516-578-6229. Helmets, cell phonesTURNED ON, and good cheer required!
Are you wondering, who are the Sissies? We are C peeps who love to ride, love to challenge ourselves, and we love our rest stops! To become a Sissie, you must complete a half metric century with a few climbs worth mentioning, and share your snack at the rest stop. This route has become a favorite, from SUNY we will cross the Kensico Dam. We'll stop at Tazza to share our snacks. Return via familiar Greenwich roads. Hoping for mid 11-12. Remember C is for Sissies. Print a cue sheet. Cell 9144503035
** Weather looks clear, ride is on for 7 ** For those early risers out there, I hope you'll join me for a relaxed morning ride. Its relatively trail heavy, some minimal hills. I've posted it as a D+ due to the target pace and one hill that will give us a good workout. The bulk of the terrain is on par with a D ride, so I'm aiming for a 10.5-11mph pace. As always, will prioritize keeping the group together versus speed. Please being helmets, hydration, and no headphones. We'll break at the Starbucks in Somers Commons. Sign In ...................................................... Anyone interested can join me for some post-ride coffee and a bite in the Tazza in Millwood.
Heavy D+ For all D/D+ riders who aspire to greatness. Ride will be within D+ parameters. It is a short and moderately hilly ride, but there is 1 significant hill so if you are up for that challenge then please join in. We will not race and no one gets dropped and there will be continual re-grouping and especially patience. So the big hill yes, but a short ride, and a rest stop shortly after the big hill, so overall should not be too taxing and yet will be a workout. Bring desire, along with appropriate equipment and hydration. Here is the ridewithgps link to view the ride. I will bring enough cue sheets: Sign In
I am going to change it up a little this year. We will both Bike and Hike Lake Minnewaska state park. The trails here are carriage trails and can be ridden on a Hybrid OR Mountain bike. No Technical skills required. Bring Lunch, extra liquids, and a backpack to carry them along with a Swim suit and towel as there is an opportunity to swim at Lake Awosting and have lunch, and there are no food facilities on site. We will do a Hike early while it is cool, then ride out to Lake Awosting, have lunch and swim. Those wishing to ONLY bike can arrive a bit later, though it may be difficult to get into the park later in the day. (lines form since the parking lots fill up.)
