  • New Canaan backroads with Bjoern beginning
"New Canaan Backroads" (created by Hank Z), one of my faves, but using the first ten miles of Bjoern's Rowayton ride because I suspect that South Bedford might be a mess. We will return that way which is a climb to scout out the conditions. I'm banking on the premise that roads that were good before the polar vortex and are in Connecticut are in better shape. Planning on a 14 pace. Revised ride with gps will be posted soon. Sign In

I'm back for easter and eager to ride all of putnam's lovely roads. I've created a hilly ride with 3570 feet of climbing, so if you want to work on hills, this is the ride for you. You can expect very little traffic except for the first and last few miles. This is a no-drop ride with regrouping at the top of hills, especially miller hill. I will be parking on the south-east most part of the Jefferson Valley Mall parking lot (the side with sears). Sign In

Expected pace of 13 to 15 mph depending on the group, however, no one will be dropped. We will depart Cycleworks Bike Shop promptly at 6:00 to ensure we arrive back before dark. But please arrive a few minutes early and come prepared with a road bike in good, working condition, water bottles, a spare tube, and rear light. This ride is intended to be a social, supportive ride, therefore I have listed it as "All Levels". Women of all abilities are welcome and encouraged to participate so long as you can maintain the 13 mph pace. For some this will be a good training ride, others may want to treat it as their recovery ride from the long miles of the weekend. Route to be posted shortly. Rain cancels.

If you are not familiar with taking your pull for a SHORT TIME and moving over, then please let me know.

Chestnut Ridge route. Will not be a big group, so try your hand at climbing hard on Rt 172. Back by dark, but bring a light. Ride leaves promptly. Sunset: 7:44pm.
This is a ride I've led many times with a detour to Millbrook for lunch. I have to bring my mom to West. airport which means I cannot detour to Millbrook for lunch. Need to be back to my car by 12:30-12:45. There are plenty of places to eat post-ride, we all stop at a deli for a quick bite before the big hill. Come on and see a shortened version of this beautiful area. My cell phone is: (914) 907-7353.
