Ride Schedule

Understanding the Waitlist

By Bruce Wells updated 9/19/20

During the COVID-19 pandemic, we are limiting rides to 10 riders.  You must sign up for a ride in advance to attend the ride.  If there are 10 or more riders already on the ride, you end up on the waitlist.

So how does the waitlist work?

It is a first come, first served system. The first rider to be waitlisted will be the first taken off the waitlist when a spot opens up. When you are taken off the waitlist, you get an email saying you are now on the ride. You may also be taken off the waitlist

      Beth(el) I Hear You Calling
      No Leader
      Leader Not Coming:

      Armonk to Bethel. This is for the A folks that need to stay closer to home this Sunday. Pace will be largely dictated by who signs up but 19 seems about right. Looks like there are plenty of food/drink options once we get ourselves into Bethel so don't forget your mask.

      I will be tacking on an extra 25ish miles riding to and from Tarrytown if anyone from that side of Westchester would like to join me just shoot me a text.

      Westwards from New Paltz
      James Keeley

      Starting in New Paltz we will head over the Minnewaska climb before heading west towards Woodbourne and Neversink Reservoir. Coming back we avoid the Mohonk Mtn House climb by swinging around through High Falls and Rosendale before a flat fast finish on Springtown Road. Depending on weather and group consensus this will be a one or two stop ride, we will have a number of options.

      Armonk to Greenwich - recovery
      Joseph Vozza

      This is titled as a recovery ride but I expect a strong B+ pace considering it's sort of flat. Also, I don't plan on getting dropped this ride. We will have one break in water/bathroom break in Banksville. Please arrive 10 minutes early so we can roll at 9 am. Mask is a must.

      I'm your Huckleberry
      Eric Torres

      Glenville-Huckleberry-Ridgefield Metric. This metric century departs Glenville and heads into Stamford enroute to Hucklberry Hill near Wilton and then up the picturesque Nod Hill Rd and into Ridgefiled for bagels and coffee at "Steve's Bagels" at mile 36. Target pace will be at the lower end of the "B" spectrum, with regroups when deemed neccesary. Be sure to dress appropriately for the crisp Fall morning weather, and don't forget a face cover.

      Just looking to spin my legs tomorrow and give me adequate justification to have a beer or 2. This is a ride for solid B riders and B- who want a bit (not too much) of a challenge. Rest stop in Old Greenwich. Weather is potentially, possibly, somewhat of a chance, iffy for the morning. I will email by 7:30 to cancel. Bring a face covering. Start is at the Crittendon School. Finish is at the Crittendon School.

      Life is a mirage, but its better than the desert........

      Bike-Swim Sebago Lake Harriman State Park
      Andy Katell

      Join us for a beautiful ride and swim (possibly also picnic) in Harriman State Park. Bring whatever you need to swim, as well as footwear. Arrive at least 15 minutes prior to ride start. Study the starting point very carefully ahead of time because it's easy to speed past it in the car, given that the signage is small and some signs might try to deter you from parking. Navigate in your car to the Lake Sebago Boat Launch, specifically, not to anyplace else with Lake Sebago in the name. Note that cell service at the boat launch parking lot, and many places within the park, is limited to non-existent. Sometimes, it's possible to transmit a text message, rathan than a voice call. This is a no-drop ride.

      New Paltz - Ashokan Reservoir - Woodstock - Rosendale
      Ave Karel

      Bring cue sheet/downloaded route. Call out "before" passing and sign up by 9pm the night before the ride, thanks!

      Safe Steady Predictable Riders a must.

      Join Eve Hartman, Gene Birgy, Bob Saward, Paul Haibon and I on a good challenging route I did last year for the first time. Designed by Seth Wolin, route takes us up past Mohonk Mountain House, then to beautiful Ashokan Reservoir, then to rest stop at Bread Alone in downtown Woodstock, and through Rosendale on the way back. One really tough long twisting climb comes before we get to Woodstock. Wonderful descent on Dug Hill Road on second half. One short tough climb coming out of Rosendale before long "nice" flat stretch to the finish.

      Ride temps will be mostly 70's - good.

      Target: 13.5mph........elevation may be in 5200 foot range (~70ft/mi)............regrouping throughout the ride to enjoy sharing it together. Riders should be in good condition and confident they ride at similar pace to us from past experience. (So, if a newcomer, please skip this ride for now until we've done some rides together, thanks)

      Bring: face mask, sanitizer, cell phone, money.

      Helmets required, no headphones, check tires + equipment in advance to avoid problems, bring 2 spare tubes/water bottles. Be clipped in + ready 5 minutes before depart time. Print/download the route and review it in advance + and carry my cell # (914-826-3440)......... Let's ride SAFELY + have fun!..

      Armonk to Pointless
      Barry Faust

      We'll ride through some of our favorite Greenwich roads with a break in Old Greenwich at Upper Crust Bagel. About 2200 feet of climbing over 43 miles. My planned pace is around 13.5. I'll be re-grouping regularly to keep folks together. I'll bring some cue sheets. Please be at the Crittendon Middle School parking lot by 9:00AM and be ready to roll at 9:15AM. Remember to bring a face covering for the break.

      Armonk Mt. Kisco Loop
      Amy Goldman

      Short, lovely loop ride from Armonk to Mt, Kisco and back. Please arrive 15 minutes before ride start. Bring your smiles and good cheer, masks, helmut, water bottles, a snack and of course your bike. I'll bring cue sheets.

      As always for D rides, will prioritize keeping the group together versus speed.

      NY Botanical Garden Fall Adventure
      Andy Katell

      Join Deb Ramsey and Andy Katell for an autumn ride to the colorful, magestic New York Botanical Garden in the Bronx. We'll head south on suburban Scarsdale and Yonkers roads, the Bronx River bike path, the edge of Van Cortlandt park and city streets, and then the Moshulu Parkway Greenway and a few city streets to reach the Garden at the entrance next to the Botanical Garden Metro North station. The return will be all-road. We're estimating arrival at the garden by 11 am. We'll spend approximately 1.5 hours at the garden before our return. Timed tickets must be purchased in advance. Buy one for 11 am, which allows admission until noon and then you can stay as long as you want. Mask-wearing in the garden is mandatory.

      Sign In

      Arrive at least 15 minutes prior to start.

      Note: Start location and route are TENTATIVE.

      Great Barrington: Late Tush
      Robert Hermann

      TESTING, testing 123.... Laurie Malen and I are seeking expressions of interest in 2 days of multi-level riding out of Great Barrington. The idea is to drive up on 10/3, ride that afternoon, dine locally, stay overnight at the reasonably priced Days Inn ($99 + tax) that we've used several times before, ride the next morning and drive back home....or you can of course stay longer if you wish. If the weather looks bad on Thursday midday, we can cancel the Days Inn then, they say. Sign up here for all pace levels and indicate your desired pace group. (If there's only "wait list," sign up anyway, as we will have more than one group.) For day 1, we have a 42-mile "Great Barr" route from the Inn's lot. For day 2, the 46-mile "Tyringham Loop" is one possibility; we can figure that out later. (Both are on RWGPS, but I can't post 2 routes for one ride listing!)

      Minneeaska Bike Hike Bike
      Bill O'Connell

      Ride is suitable for mountain or gravel bikes occasional short distances with larger gravel. The hike is on the Gertrude's nose path which is rock scrambling. The hike is harder than the bike ring cable locks to lock your bike to trees at the beginning of Gertrude's nose path and bring lunch and drinks to eat at Lake Awosting.

      Rain Date is Sunday the next day.

      we advise all riders to arrive by 9am when the park gate opens.

      if the fall foliage is near peak the parking lots fill quickly

      Fall Foliage Tour to Kent featuring the Wonderful Skiff Mtn Rd
      Greg Sims

      Looking so forward to teaming up with Eric on this ride that he has put together and would really encourage other ride levels to join in on the fun! Here's what Eric has to say about his ride...

      Let's get together to ride and enjoy the fall scenery up in the north country of Kent ,Ct. Route will travel on many scenic low traffic roads, and feature 2 magnificent climbs. First climb is pretty early in the route on Quaker Hill Rd, and the other is a doozy at mile 23, Skiff Mtn Rd. But don't be afraid.....if you've done Perkins, then you'll be fine on Skiff. The remainder of the route is mostly flat and rolling hills. Main lunch stop will be at mile 37.5 at "Back in the Kitchen" in Armenia. Other potential pit stops are mile 22.5, at either JP Giffords cafe, or the Gas Station in Kent, and then mile 55.2, at Cousins Cafe in Wingdale. Don't forget to bring a face covering.

      Pace will likely fall between 18 and 19 with strong B+ riders welcomed. Would be great to have another A posting that would cover the "hammer" crew;) I'm going to be looking at the foliage on this one!

      StoneRidge Marcopolo
      David Hathaway

      This is an abreviated version of my "Ashokan Marcopolo". It's a 65 mile ride through the Gunks at the height of the fall foliage season. I've eliminated 15 miles off of the original route, and tried to minimise any steep grades. The official food stop will be at the "Stone Ridge Town Centre" at the 33 mile mark. However there will be many other food stops along the route. Ride will not go in rain or on wet roads.
