Saturday, October 25

This is the ride that was often lead by John Cool in past years, slightly modified from the original cue to bypass a couple of hills. A great route up and around Candlewood Lake and back down via Bethel, where we'll stop for food, then on through Ridgefield. Mostly rolling terrain with one nice climb on Aunt Hack Road. Sign In
Un-scenic ride on too-familiar, local roads for those with afternoon commitments. A few brief hills, but nothing we can't handle with a few well-chosen and properly-timed expletives. Print out cue sheet #1311 from the Library.

  • Minnewaska MarcoPolo
This is a spectacular but challenging 66 mile ride with 5176 feet of climbing. The ride begins in New Paltz, NY, and travels over 3 mountain passes in the Gunks. The breathtaking scenic views and fall foliage, on the west side of Route 52 toward Ellenville, as well as Minnewaska West are worth the the trip up. Most of the route consists of traffic free country back roads. Expect about 77 feet per mile of climbing. I will be riding at a B- pace, anyone that can ride 14 mph or more wont be dropped. The official food stop will be Stewarts Shop in Ellenville, at the 33 mile mark; however I also have 4 other rest stops available if necessary. Link to Ride with GPS: Sign In. I will bring cue sheets to the ride start. As usual, inclement weather (40 percent chance of showers) cancels the ride. Helmets are required, no headphones, please check your tires and equipment carefully to avoid mechanical problems, and bring 2 spare tubes, food and water. Starts at New Paltz, N.Y., Parking lot corner of Main Street and Wurts Ave. across from Bicycle Depot

  • Tour of the Litchfield Hills #2: Lover's Leap
Want to finishing up the season with a colorful bang? The previous Tour of Litchfield Hills was quite well received despite my "no sugar coating" warning of hilliness. So, let's do one more! This time, we'll go a little beyond New Milford to Lover's Leap State Park to admire its unique sheer cliff drop straight into the water of Housatonic River, at peak foliage! ... For a bit of variation, this time we'll ease into the initial climb by going up the milder grade of Quaker Hill, cruise along the ridge of Mizzentop with 360 vista of the valleys off both east and west, with a screaming descend into beautiful Spring Lake. A quick break at the 1 store village of Gaylordsville is sandwiched in between long stretches of easy rollers that ends with lunch at the little known cute village of New Milford. After lunch, we'll swing by for a quick visit to Lover's Leap State Park. This will bring us to the climb back to Sherman and another well-deserved break in the American Pie company (pie eating optional), before the last significant climb up Chapel Hill (brief section of dirt) back to New York. We finish with a long descend (as usual) on South Quaker, with one last view of the distant mountains and valleys back into Pawling. Sign In (those who did my first Tour of the Litchfield Hills, you'll find some familiar roads and some new ones too, minus the 2 killer climbs. They're replaced by a bunch of less steep grades... to gain the same height! ;-] ) While the C+ rating is indicative of the hilly terrain, pace will be in a more tortoise like 12.5-13 range to account for the hills. Please arrive early so we could roll on the dot at 10.
A late posting, but come out and ride for a fun time on an expected sunny day. Leave your Garmin's behind and focus on the beautiful fall foliage before its gone. Moderately Hilly(2500 feet of climbing) but short ride at a solid C+ pace of mid 14's. Intermittent regrouping to stay together and allow everyone to catch their breath. Faster riders welcome to go ahead and meet at the rest stop at Panera in Yorktown. We'll ride around Teatown, across the Dam and around the Western part of the Croton Reservoir. Bring extra tubes and a good attitude! Print out the cuesheet (sorry-don't know how to link the RIDEWITHGPS)and put my cell # 714-5099.
The time of this ride will allow for Bike4Kids Volunteers to still get a ride in on what should be a nice day. The event is due to end at 1pm, giving us time to relocate to SMS for a leisurely ride. ALL Volunteers are welcome, although you do not HAVE to volunteer to join our ride. The CUE below is NOW GOOD!!! Sign In Saturday.
In preparation for Sunday's long ride, let's have an easy Saturday. 51/ft per mile, that's the ticket. I have thrown in under 1 mile of dirt but it is the nicest part of the ride so I don't feel guilty about that. So please join me on this jaunt, though you may not break a sweat. Rest stop at Steve's Bagels. Bring the appropriate equipment and hydration and I will bring all the cue sheets. Sign In

There will be plenty of water views (Titicutts, Saugatuck, and a bunch of smaller lakes and ponds ), plenty of quiet shady roads, and plenty of climbing too (mostly short though). Lunch comes relatively late at mile ~30 in Georgetown. Pace should be 13-14 MPH to account for the climbing. Starting a little later to let it warm up. Please be arrive by 9:45 for safety talk.

Expect an average pace of 17 to 17.5 mph. We're in that time of year where the weather is colder and the rides are shorter to avoid lengthy rest stops and the cold that follows when restarting. So we will do this 46 mile route without a rest stop but with 2 or 3 re-groups or nature breaks as necessary. Up Sarles from Armonk>Pinesbridge to Rt 100> through Teatown> over the dam> Huntersbridge to Yorktown back to Armonk by 128. Possible rest stop at Panera in Yorktown. Mostly rolling with a few climbs. (71 feet of ascent/mile). Helmets a must. No headphones. Bring Spare tubes, a pump or CO2 cartridges, liquids, gels, power bars,and good cheer. Sign In
