      Best Ride of the Year C+/B- new date, same start time
      Lewis Insler
      I moved this to Friday when it will be much warmer and the start time remains 9:30 to give more time to get up to Dutchess County. Larry E. led this amazing ride from Hopewell to Millbrook last October and it went into my log as "Best Ride of the Year." I have adjusted the start/finish from larry's bungalow to the Shop-Rite , but the mileage comes out the same. There is an amazing 8 mile descent from mile 27 to 35 and the rest of the ride is spectacular as well. Ask any of the 17 people who did it last year!! Babbette's in Millbrook is open on Friday Use Club RWGPS link, Best Ride of the Year, Sign In to download the route or the cue sheet. There will be very limited cue sheets at the start. pace is 14.0 to 14.5 with regrouping. Hope to see lots of you Friday.

      Greenwich House Tour
      Stephen Fleischner
      Join us for #1 Greenwich House Tour on a beautiful fall day. I lead this ride in the summer and always planned on leading it again in the fall. This is a magnificent ride if you like to take in the fabulous residences of Greenwich. This ride is less than average hilly with 1700 feet of climbing or about 50/ft per mile. We will ride to the entrance to GPP and then turn back with a break at the Upper Crust bagel store in Old Greenwich. Because of the many turns on this ride we will expect a slower pace in the low 13s. So come out and join us on what will be a lovely warm fall day. I will bring the cue sheets. Here is the Club RWGPS link to the ride. Sign In

      Shop Ride: Women's Mountain Biking
      Laura Kelly
      Calling all women!! Let's shred (or learn to shred)!
      If you've been wanting to try mountain biking, sign up! I'm leading a women-specific mountain biking shop ride for Yorktown Cycles.

      We will be on the Yorktown trails, which are rated beginner-intermediate. What does this mean? There are rocks, roots, and logs ("trail features") and the trails are great for building skills! Ride (or try) trail features you feel comfortable with; walk over/around the ones you aren't.

      Super supportive, low pressure environment. I'm stoked when you're stoked.
      Need a bike? Yorktown Cycles is 7 minutes from the trailhead. Call them first (it's their shop ride)!
      We'll be out about 2 hours, ride time will be around an hour or so. Expect mileage total between 5-7 miles.

      You need:
      a knobby tire mountain bike (NO hybrids or city tires on a mountain-style bike)
      helmet
      hydration and snack (bottle or backpack, your choice)
      desire to try something new

      Rain, snow, or soggy trails cancels. Leader will be in touch if the ride is cancelled or rescheduled. Email until day of, then text is best.

      We’ll take Manhattan!
      George Klein
      Take your bike on a Metro North train of your choice into Grand Central Terminal, meet at the main info booth at 11:00AM. Technically, you need a bike pass (get a pass for $5 at Window 27 in Grand Central Terminal, or at any staffed ticket office), but I’ve had one for years and never been asked for it! We will ride on 42 St to the west side pedestrian/bike path, ride down to the Village, then the East Village, where we’ll split up to eat. Then we’ll rejoin and ride to the Lower East Side and Chinatown, finally pedal back uptown to Grand Central Terminal. Manhattan can be dicey, so you need to be well lit not only from the rear, but from the front too, and you have to be hypervigilant against getting doored, oblivious pedestrians, potholes and other creative hazards. Bring a lock. Check this space 24 hours before the ride to see if it has been re-scheduled due to weather.

      Hello Thursday Peeps, this was Deb's ride the first time and we were treated to a Halloween Fantasy Land. Now we are invited back to see Santa's workshop.....If you missed this ride before you won't want to miss it this time....amazing!! The route was specially designed by Deb R on only new paved roads.....well except for Boone Rd which we will take again.

      This will be a "C" pace, faster riders are welcome to join but stay with the group as we leave Yorktown for Granite Springs. Break at Panera. This is a road ride so skin tires are PERFECT, NO GRAVEL OR DIRT, NO DROPS

      Dress for success, check the weather beforehand, bring your helmet, working blinkers, ID, a friend if you like, and most of all you HOLIDAY SPIRIT!!!!!
