We are joining up with our cycling friends at NYCC and BTCNJ! We will be starting from the Ross Dock Picnic Area off Palisades Interstate Parkway, so please consider carpooling.
Note start time at 9:00 now
. We will assemble then for a photo and head out north to Tappan for lunch once we get our acts together.
We're expecting sizable groups so we will break up into sections at the start based on pace level. The idea is to meet members from the other clubs.
Lunch will be brought on your own (there are delis nearby or BYO) and we'll bring it to a lovely picnic area at the Sign In
in Tappan. No charge.
Our route (60 miles): Sign In
You can print a cue sheet from RWGPS if you want one. We will also bring some. This will be what an average Westchester route.
This ride is suitable for B- to B riders. Expected pace for the 60 mile route, with different sections based on pace, as noted, will vary from 13-15 mph. There will be regrouping. I am planning to ride at the 13-15 pace (WCC B-). There is a group at a faster pace (WCC B) 15-17 which is a 60 mile at 15-17. Please sign up for the faster group and send me a note or sign up for the 70 miler.
DO NOT download the route from RWGPS before Friday. The group of 3 clubs continues to work to improve it and provide notes for you. We will also soon post some information about stores near the Tappan rest stop where you can buy food for lunch.Leaders
, please feel free to put yourself in as co-leader (for the WCC riders who join). The head "leaders" will be from NYCC and BTCNJ, as they know the routes best from experience. Thanks!
START TIME IS TENTATIVE! MORE TO COME!
Parking will be $10/car; please consider carpooling!
