This ride will give you the information and guidance you need to feel comfortable on future rides with WCC.

Next we split into two or three groups with slower riders staying at SUNY and others riding out for a 20 mile loop. If you have not been riding your bike, please check, several days ahead of time, that it is operable and that your tires hold air and are not flatting. Please note- you must sign up in advance for this ride.

Please list what you are planning to bring to the post-Two Bridges Memorial Day picnic. Beer, of course, but food, utensils, non-alcoholic beverages, etc. would be appreciated too.
Note 1: arrive at 8:30 at the latest to leave at 8:45 (as not to interfere with the parade). Note 2: bring photo identification as we'll be riding through West Point Academy. Social pace so that we don't miss any historical landmarks. And to uphold a John Milano tradition, we'll have our potluck picnic at the end. For those who want to join, please bring something delicious to share with your comrades and a chair to rest in. Sign In

Note 3: This route is slightly different from Bjoern's; it eliminates the Albany Post Road loop (and about 600 feet of climbing). Sign In

This will be the C pace version of our annual Memorial Day ride. BRING ID for route through West Point. There will be the usual pot luck after the ride at the little park by the river. Cell 516-578-6229. Helmet, cell phone TURNED ON and good cheer required!

REMEMBER TO BRING PHOTO ID FOR ENTRANCE INTO WEST POINT! Arrive by 8:30 so we can leave by 8:45 the latest. My bad thinking has been pointed out to me and an alternative has been accepted. We will ride to West Point, to Inspiration Point because it is inspirational. Then we will turn around and go back the way we came. This cuts out the big climb up Storm King Mt (but also one of the nicest parts of the ride), the Newburgh Beacon Bridge (which can be mentally challenging for many), and that awful hill in Beacon. Less miles, a few less climbs, but picnic worthy. Bring something to share at the multi-level pop-up picnic. Who's in my D peeps?

PLEASE BRING PHOTO ID TO GET THROUGH SECURITY AT WEST POINT. Then north up Storm King Mountain to a break/lunch in Newburgh. After that I will continue north to Kingston, Albany and all points west to my final destination in Niagara Falls a couple of days later. Unless you are crazy enough to follow me, everyone else will go with Christine over the Newburgh Bridge and back south to Cold Spring.

This 69 mile ride begins in New Paltz, NY, and travels over 2 mountain passes in the Gunks, with 4504 feet of climbing. This is similar to the ride I led last fall, however I have modified the route to omit the assent up Mohonk Mountain, this should make the route easier to tolerate. Most of the route consists of traffic free country back roads. Expect about 65 feet per mile of climbing. This ride is suitable for B riders, however I will be posting at a B- pace, anyone that can ride 14 mph or more will not be dropped. The official food stop will be Stewarts Shop in Ellenville, at the 35 mile mark; however I also have 4 other rest stops available if necessary. Link to Ride with GPS: Sign In. Cue sheet to come. 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.

Sunday, June 21

A more civilized start time, but same 200 miles. Or start earlier if you are not sure.
