      Thursday Night Roller Coaster Ride! This ride has fun familiar roads, though some may be in reverse of what you're used to. Some hills to climb, rollers to rock on, and a fast pace line sprint down Lake Ave. Since we've been averaging above 18 mph the last few weeks, the ride category has been upgraded, but don't let that stop you from joining..NO DROPS! Even though we'll be back before sundown, please have a working rear light on at all times. Sign In

Based on my past experience, 13-13.5 is the pace. Ride with GPS route is 2427637. About 3,000' of climbing or 71'/mile. Park in the upper lots above the Carvel. It is now an ACME supermarket.

      Bedford to Rowayton
      Barry Faust
      This ride from Bedford to Rowayton is one of my favorite WCC routes. It includes some quiet roads, some impressive homes, a couple of water views, and not too much climbing: 2400 feet, which is about 52 feet per mile. I'll shoot for around a 13 pace and will be regrouping to keep folks together. I'll bring cue sheets. I modified the route slightly to take Upper Shad Road on the way out as well as on the way back. We'll take our break at Rowayton Market. The RideWithGPS link is Sign In

      Please be at the Bedford Village Tennis Court parking lot by 8:45AM to sign in and hear the safety talk in time for a 9:00AM start.

      OCA Commute from The Gorge to NYC
      John Blye
      There is a strong threat of rain on Monday so the OCA will be wet and muddy. I will commute to NYC on paved roads and clone this ride for Wednesday.

      An early morning start, so out my door at 6:30 with 2 additional meet up spots....1 at Black Cow in Croton at 6:45, 1 at the bottom of The Croton Gorge at 7:00. Call me with your location south of there, I will give you an ETA to there. We take the OCA as far as we can go, actually only to Getty Sq. Yonkers. From there I will work our way down Rivadale Ave to Palisades Ave onto Kappock St and over the Henrey Hudson Bridge to the Island of Manhattan, down the West Side Greenway to W 42 St. I'm staying in the city till 7 so all others can tour around NYC and hop a train, none rush hour back to westchester. Metro North bike permit required, $5.00, and if your a senior the tran fair is between $5-9.00 based on destination. Watch the ride board, this ride will be cloned 2-3 times a week through Mid August. I will do a ridewithgps shortly and post.

(The route uses part of the Dutchess county rail trail, too.) ** The starting location is now a Shoprite supermarket. Bring two water bottles, if it is supposed to be hot. You are welcomed back to my bungalow for a dip in the pool afterwards, so bring a swimsuit (no skinny dipping!)

      Montgomery to New Paltz
      Tom Sebastian
      Let's ride the beautiful and rolling roads of Orange County, well worth the 55 minutes drive to the start location. Enjoy gorgeous country views with the Gunks as a backdrop, lunch stop at The Bakery in New Paltz at halfway point of the ride. Pace probably 15 to 16 mph depending on who shows up, keeping the group together for riders of similar ability. Only about 2,200 feet elevation, but a solid ride nonetheless. Don't get fooled by the intended pace, this will be a relaxed ride (appropriate from strong C+ to B level) and we can also make it a multi-level ride if any other ride leader wants to join. Please print Cue 1198 if you want one. See profile at Sign In. 35% chance of rain before 3 PM or wet roads cancels (look here for update Sunday morning by 7:30 AM if weather is iffy). My cell# day of ride is 914 393-0182. Enter the park onto Access Rd off of Rt 416, then bear right at the split towards the "Tennis Courts" and the large parking lot next to it.
      Due to distance to start location, I need at least five (5) DEFINITE riders by Saturday 6/24 7 PM or the ride cancels.

      Whip and Gag
      Anil Malhotra
      This is the traditional WAG ride that involves a fair bit of climbing (Sherwood, Whippoorwill, Baldwin) and some fast descents including down Round Hill near the end. Pace has been climbing through the season with range from 16-19 mpg but this always depends on who shows up. There are two regroups; after descending Whip and after Middle Patent, so faster and slower riders welcome. Post-ride festivities have focused on pizza and beer, but warmer weather may bring out the nuggets and sake. No headphones, helmets a must.... Sign In

      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 JULY 2.

      Harriman
      Brian Juszcyk
      Some will likely remember my absolute lust for Harriman from last year. I love riding here. Few cars, mostly good pavement, great views, and lots of hills. No cue sheet, as I'm just planning some spontaneous circuits through the various roads, somewhere on the order of 45-50 miles. We'll regroup enough to avoid getting lost/separated, but it's generally pretty hard to get lost once you know the roads. C pace (12-13 mph likely), but C+ level hills, so I'm calling it a C+, but given the relentless hills, it's going to be much slower overall than a typical C+.

      There are rest stops and vending machines in the park, but plan to bring most of what you'll need for hydration and food. It's also roughly a 45 minute drive from most places in Westchester and a 6am start, so that we can get a lot of time in before it gets too hot and I can still make personal commitments later in the day.

      Please make sure you google the starting location so you arrive on time. It might be slightly darkish when we first roll, but will lighten up quickly and is fine from a visibility perspective. If you have questions, feel free to email me, as this is a bit of an atypical and less structured ride than we normally do.

      Tour de Putnam
      John Blye
      You are reading this correctly, I am posting an all level C ride without hard pack or gravel......LOL
      This is a ride for ALL "C" riders + or -, let's come out and support the Putnam County Tourism, Ty Louis Foundation and the organizer Pawling Cycle & Sport for the day touring and dinning in Putnam County. There is a shorter 26 mile loop that our "D" riders should consider, "B's" can just ride faster. We ride and love this region, even the hard climbs. The course will be marked with red arrows, signs and marshals along with Sign In Wear your WCC kit with pride, tuned bike, helmet, blinkers, ID, and WCC smiles and friendship. I plan to stay after for the festivities, food and music, might even bring a few growlers.

      You have to also sign up for this ride at Sign In cost $35

      Bill O'Connell
      The Long route for the weekend - up Route 9 in NY then Down the Champlain Islands to Hero's Welcome at miler 48 for Lunch and then to Ferry on Grand Isle to go back to Plattsburgh. Recommended for C+ and Higher riders. C and D riders will find the Short Route more to their liking.

      Champlain Islands SHORT Route
      Bill O'Connell
      Ride Down to the Ferry, across the Grand Isle in the middle of Lake Champlain ($5.25 ferry EACH Way) then ride to Lunch at Hero's Welcome on North Hero Island for Lunch - Beautiful Setting overlooking Lake. If you like, start earlier and rent a Kayak here for an hour. Route is Very Flat - relaxed miles 44. There MAY be a hill back up into Plattsburgh, if that is too much we will try to have help for tired riders.

      Ride to the Farm
      Laura Kelly
      ** MOVED TO SUNDAY JULY 30 **
      Join me on a beautiful ride from Yorktown to Fishkill Farms and back.

      Check out the route: Sign In
      Awesome right? Challenging but not too crazy.

      Check out the farm: Sign In
      Rad! And did you see they have farm-made hard cider to taste? Yes please!

      NO DROP; expected 13-14mph avg. Plan to ride for 4-4.5 hours but be out for closer to 5.5-6 hours.

      Additional Info to consider:
      first rest option is about mile 15 but we'll probably bypass it as ...
      longer lunch stop at the farm at Mile 22 - BYOL or buy from their grill (line sometimes is long)
      Farm Store will have produce and other goodies for sale to supplement your lunch!
      next rest option at mile 31 (slightly off-route) and mile 42 (Carmel)

      You will need a bike, helmet, tools & tube, plenty of water and snacks, a sense of adventure and positivity, and your climbing legs. Electrolytes are bonk-busters - keep some handy for this ride. It's July and probably hot.

      Email me any questions, suggestions, and congratulations. :)

      **ride still in planning stages; trying to get my kid to SAG for us to carry lunches and farm-fresh goodies back**

      Martha's Vineyard Single Sign in
      Bill O'Connell
      THis is a ONE Place sign in - BUT the weekend goes from Thursday to Sunday. When you sign in, please send Leader and email with the Following.
      1) Which days you plan to attend.
      2) Where you plan to stay.
      3) Whether you HAVE a room - and where - or whether you need a room, a share etc.

      As of this posting - most of our initially reserved rooms are sold out.
      There are hundreds more, both on the VIneyard and on the Cape.
      If you stay on Cape - you need to be on the Vineyard by 9am for the ride each day.
      There are ferries that will get you there on time.
      You also need to let the ride leader know, so that we can wait for you, or sweep by to pick you up. (riding of course).
      As we get close, I will share the events for each day, the ride options, and other activities for NON-Riders. As long as the weather cooperates, this weekend can be a real gem.
      The BIG ride is Saturday, so if you can only ride one day, that is the day to look at. Weather permitting of course.
      If Saturday is bad, we will move the big ride to another day.
      Thursday afternoon there will be a short ride.
      Friday another ride - and option if warm enough to Kayak.
      Saturday 55 Miles to Lighthouse at Aquinnah - C/D riders can lock bikes in West Tisbury and take Bus out and back to Lighthouse (hilly part of island) Much of ride is on Paths and FLAT. Past West Tisbury you are on road and hilly. Bonus for doing the Lighthouse by bike is the Bicycle Ferry (Sat/Sun only - VERY COOL)
