      Birthday Ride to Millbrook
      Larry Edlavitch
      Join me for my first lead of the year. It's Paula's D route at a C pace. We'll celebrate with cake and ice cream afterwards. We are also celebrating the turning on of the water at the bungalow colony.
      It will be slow, around 13, as I'm still trying to get in shape. (It was a long winter of skiing without much riding). The route is beautiful, mostly rolling with only 3 or 4 climbs only 1,817ft of climbing. We'll be stopping at Babbettes for lunch. The weather will be spectacular, so come along with your smiles and enjoy the day. The cue sheet will be brought, however the gps route is 20631574.gpx

      Boyds and Back Short Version
      Ellen Katz
      Unfortunately I don't have time to do Larry's fabulous ride so here's a shorter alternative for those who need to get back earlier. Beautiful scenery and not a whole lot of climbing. My pace should be between 12.5 and 13. Download cue sheet 903 (I'll bring a few) and load your Garmin. The cue sheet starts at the Metro North station but we'll begin at the Acme market. Park far away from the stores. Arrive early to set up and be ready to roll at 9:25. Safety talk begins then. See you on Thursday! Sign In

      A true B+ Spring ride. Reasonable distance but terrain is lumpy. Expect a low B+ pace. No drops or surging off the front.This a group ride. Slow roll over the tops of tougher climbs. This ride is for true B+ riders who are trying to build fitness. If you have more than 250 out-door miles; have done training camps; or have earned deep profile wheels and a skin suit on Zwift this ride is not for you. Seriously. Post another ride. Stop is around mile 30 at the Whistle Stop Bakery (great cranberry scones). Sign In

      Buns of Steel!
      David Hathaway
      Say you would like to go to the Tush Tuneup, but your scheduling won't allow a weekend excursion? This is my alternative! The ride is 86 miles long from Hopewell Junction to New Paltz, with around 3892 feet of climbing. Most of the route consists of traffic free country back roads. After we leave New Paltz the return trip will consist of the Hudson Valley Rail Trail, Walkway over the Hudson, and the Dutchess County Rail Trail all the way back to the start. I will be posting at a B- pace, anyone that can ride 14 mph or more won’t be dropped. The food stop will be at the Village Market and Eatery in Gardiner, at the 46-mile mark; however, I also have 2 other rest stops available if necessary. Link to Ride with GPS: Sign In. 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.

      Tush Tune Up 38++ choose your own ending
      John Blye
      This will be a C-, C, C+ ride with a little twist at the end. Stop at the 19 mile mark and have a drink from the Salisbury natural spring water fountain at City Hall, and choose your finish at the 27.7 mile mark. Here is the C- 38 mile route Sign In Flattest route is RIGHT on Berkshire School Rd and follow the club cue sheet (C-).......OR stay with me while we head north to Mt Washington and Egremont /Alford (C).
      Sign In. I, Steve and Meryle Richman will lead this portion untill we hit the next bail point at the junction of N Egremont Rd and W Rd/ E Rd. Steve and Meryle will turn South on Alford Rd to Taconic Ave bringing you into the Day's Inn. I think this is a MUCH nicer route, safer and only about 7 miles longer with modest hills and cows, what I would call a WOW ride. .........Back to the junction...W Rd and E Rd, and the (C+) riders,Sign In we will go North/East to Lenox, join me if you will, I will SAG those riders back to Great Barrington, this will add another 8 miles, total 55 and some of the prettiest valley riding the Berkshires offer. I will post a ride with GPS once it is edited, Thank you Ed for the help. There will be NO DROP/ ONE STOP on the last portion of the ride, and the refreshment bar will be open once we hit Lenox, WATER, WINE or BEER. Printed cue sheets at 10 Mile River RR

      Tarrytown to Ossining and back on the Bike Trail
      Don McHugh
      Start at the corner of Neperan Rd & Sunnyside Ave at Tarrytown Lake in Tarrytown. NOTE: the parking lot is small; while I've not had a problem in the past, you may have to park on one of the side street across the way, if we attract a crowd. We'll ride 12.5 miles out to the bridge over the reservoir in Ossining, take a short break on the bridge, regroup and head back. I hope to avg about 11.5-12.5 mph. But, this is a good ride for all levels! Since, we'll stick to the trail with defined start and stopping points, folks can go at their own pace. Faster riders can ride ahead and wait on the bridge to regroup; and we can pick up any stragglers on the way back. I'm a fair weather cyclist, so anything more than light rain cancels. Bring your helmet, water bottle, functional bike with spare, cell phone and a smile (and hope for good weather).

      New Member Orientation Ride
      Lisa Baker
      Are you new to Westchester Cycle Club or considering joining? This ride is for you. We will provide an introduction to safe riding and expected practices on WCC group rides, then break into groups by level of speed and experience. You can expect to learn how WCC rides work and which level ride you might choose for your first regular club ride. Anyone who can ride a few miles on their bike is welcome--we'll break up into groups at different distances, so you do not necessarily have to ride 15 miles. Please come with a bicycle in reasonably good repair, a helmet (required), a water bottle, and comfortable clothes for riding. Please arrive at least 15 minutes early to gear up and sign in. We will meet in lot "West 1" on the Purchase College campus. Look for the cluster of cars with bicycles. There is a fee to park in this lot, and the club will cover this fee for riders and leaders. Please do NOT pay the parking fee as you enter the lot. If you have not yet joined the club, you are entitled to one free ride, and this would be a good one to choose! Ride Leaders, I welcome your assistance at this ride, which will qualify you for Assistant Leader points. Please let me know if you'll be able to join. RAIN DATE IS MAY 7.

      Lew & Ken's Orange County ride
      Lewis Insler
      This ride was inspired by my first WCC "event" circa 2005. Come join us as we ride the low traffic roads and conquer the hills of Orange County. Lots of great scenery, and approximately 2800' of climbing . We will head east to Cornwall and loop back on mostly different roads, this is not the flat north-south route from Montgomery to New Paltz. Pace will be 13.5-14.5 with regrouping. Rest stop at mile 27 in Cornwall at DICicco's/Dunkin Donuts/Subway. We start behind the Orange County Court House in Goshen (about an hour drive from White Plains; parking is accessible via Scotchtown Road). Optional lunch following the ride at “Noble Roasters”, on Rt 207 outside of Goshen. (We'll pass it around Mile 7 but it's only 2 miles from the start. Think Tazza meets Black Cow)
      IT WOULD BE GREAT IF SOMEONE POSTS THIS AS A SEPARATE B- RIDE, or even a B. (Brian T, you out there?)

      There are no bathroom facilities at the starting point. Suggested pre-ride stop is the QuikCheck gas station immediately to the left at exit 124 on Rt 17/6 (cheap gas, clean bathrooms, coffee, and goodies). After exiting station to the left, turn right at the light onto Greenwich Avenue, to go into Goshen. Please print your own cue sheet and be ready to ride at 8:55 AM. Safety talk begins then.
