      White Pond in the winter time
      Greg Sims
      We've done a ride similar to this in the fall. This will be the winter version. Who knows, maybe we will create the Four Seasons of White Pond series; Vivaldi would be happy with us.

      Expect temps in the lower 40's with some clouds. For pace, we will target mid 18's with limited regroups. A water stop to fill up bottles will probably be necessary, where is to be determined. Show up at ride start in time for a punctual departure and with a few minutes to spare for the pre-ride safety and route discussion.

      For someone wanting extra miles, see the ride comments section.

      NO REST STOP but we will regroup as needed

      The Frozen Apple Gravel Spring Classic
      Laura Kelly
      YOU MUST Sign In TO RIDE THIS EVENT.


      If you're into early season lactic acid burning in your legs and have a sense of adventure, this ride is for you.

      Kick off your spring gravel season with Sign In! Starting and ending at River Outpost Brewery in Peekskill, the 40-mile course is designed to be beautiful and challenging - including 2.5 miles of unmaintained roads and about 4,500' of climbing. About 70% of the course is dirt - most of the pavement is getting in and out of Peekskill.

      This ride is not for beginners or those that prefer smooth hardpacked dirt. Conditions will be unpredictable, including wash-outs, potholes, ruts, rocks, sand, mud, ice, snow, or any combination of these conditions.

      We also have no idea what the weather will be like in March. It could be sunny and 60*, could be 35* and sleeting. The ride will be on like Donkey Kong unless there is a state of emergency, in which case we will be in touch with registered riders.

      All riders will receive a token for a beer at the end of the ride. River Outpost will have food and additional beverages available for purchase.

      The Frozen Apple is presented by Sign In and Sign In in partnership with Sign In.
