      F2G2 Prep Ride - Rocky Ridgebury Hills Trails
      Thomas Nee

      Especially designed for folks training for the Fall Foilage Gravel Grinder next Saturday.

      https://www.bikereg.com/55423

      Advanced-Intermediate level gravel trail skills needed. Serious gravel tires needed (not optional).

      We'll traverse a 0.53 mile rocky trail akin to Bell Hollow Rd. One section is likely a bike/hike for those of us who don't have expert level MTB skills.

      We'll also be scouting out an alternate trail in Hemlock Hills to the one Judy and I explored last week. Could be rocky said a local mountain biker passing us on his dualie.

      Add to that 3.2 miles of rocky road (not the ice cream) in Mountain Lake Park.

      Rest stop at Hayfields 21 miles.

      Another go in the Gunks!
      Brigitte Sims

      I missed out on the Gunks ride a couple weeks ago and want to have my chance too;)


      This ride will start at the New Paltz municipal lot and 2 miles in, start the climb up Mohonk Mountain. Then wind our way up to and around the Ashokan Reservoir. A quick break in Woodstock but not before taking in a couple three more "bumps" just before getting there. The rest is pretty much downhill after that. Expect pace to be mid-17's and we'll regroup after major climbs.

      Ridgefield HS Circling Candlewood Lake
      Jeffrey Landau

      This ride was designed by Bill O'Connel and looks like a good one. There is some dirt roads included.

      A bit hilly in spots but I minimized to 4200 feet. Not bad for 62 miles.

      It has been a while since we did a Candlewood Route.

      Saturday should be cool and cloudy.

      We could stop in New Milford at mile 37 for a rest stop. (Dunkin Donuts, 4 East Street (route 202), New Milford)

      Greenwich Room with New Jersey’s Fitting
      Bill O'Connell

      IMPORTANT!!! Arrive Eraly!

      show up around 9am to try on New Jersey sizing.

      Apparently, this company thinks we are all Svelte racers.

      i expect to go from my usual XL to 2 or even 3 XL.

      Christine will have samples to try for fit.

      These will NOT be the new club design.

      There should be A C And an B ride also going

      Harvest Ride to Silverman's Farm-Joint Ride with Sound Cyclists
      Andy Katell

      As the leaves turn and wind blows, riders leaving from the Westport train station will head to Silverman's Farm on Sport Hill Rd. in Easton, CT, for its annual Fall Fest. Fall Fest is an annual tradition at Silverman's. Fall foliage sets the backdrop for colorful displays of "New England" squashes, gourds and Indian corn. Hay bales and cornstalks provide a vivid backdrop for photo opportunities and consumption of treats such as cider donuts and apples you can purchase from the farm's market. This autumn extravaganza features nice country roads leading to the farm. On the way, we'll stop to view the famous Banks North Halloween displays. If needed, another stop for bathrooms, drinks, etc can be made on the return. Get ready for some fall fun!

      Silverman's Farm is at 20.2 miles

      Additional rest stop is Lily's Market at 42 miles

      Banks North Rd for Halloween display viewing is at 50.5 miles

      All-Level PLACEHOLDER - Golden Apple for WCC Members Only - With FREE CATERED LUNCH!
      Andy Katell

      This is a PLACEHOLDER for a confirmed Golden Apple series of rides, at various paces and distances, for WCC members only. To be clear, we are NOT opening up the rides or lunch to anyone other than WCC members. Individual ride leaders will post the rides, so this notification is largely designed as a SAVE THE DATE to block this off on your calendars. Unlike previous WCC events, this time it will NOT be pot luck. Instead, we're arranging a catered lunch under the pavilion at Fox Valley Town Park (on Google Maps, listed as Fox Valley Park) in Katonah/Lewisboro. There will be NO CHARGE for lunch. The routes likely will be based on those used from this same location on Labor Day, but with someone eliminating dirt and gravel sections from those routes (unless, of course, they routes are designated and intended as such terrain). Please note that I am unlikely to be able to lead a ride or attend due to a scheduling conflict, but I wish everyone a safe fun ride and subsequent festivities.

      Alice's, again
      Robert Hermann

      This posting is to gauge interest in our traditional Alice's Restaurant ride (hold the Alice!), which hasn't been done in the past 2 years (and you know why). The foliage should be lovely. This posting is for all pace levels, so sign up here and indicate in comments your intended pace group. It's a tour, not a sprint. We'll divide into groups if and as needed. This time-tested route has no more elevation gain on average than most WCC rides in Westchester. 6% of the route is dirt-gravel that can be handled by virtually any set-up, and work-arounds are possible for the dirt-averse. We'll stop for a bite in West Stockbridge, of course. A bad forecast (too cold or wet) will lead to cancellation. Parking is available on the grass behind the bike-friendly LaBonne's market in Salisbury. Car pooling is encouraged. CUE SHEET is in Club's Library is #1327 and link is provided below. text0

      Halloween Ride
      Deborah Ramsey

      I've missed our annual Halloween Ride, so here is a different, safer, version. Plan your rides from the Croton Gorge, then we will party after the ride. I will bring all my usual baked goodies. Feel free to contribute. Wear a costume, it's more fun!

    * Unaffiliated ride. This ride is not affiliated with the Westchester Cycle Club, but listed as a courtesy to the local cycling community.
