Join us on May 1 for the RBC Primavera, the club's first event of the 2021 season. We are excited to partner with Playa Cancun in Stony Point, NY, for our start/finish. This intra-club event is a way for all club members to come out, ride, and then hang out afterward for lunch. Come meet your fellow club mates, whether they ride in A, B, or C groups. Get your spring legs under you by either choosing the 30 mile or 50 mile course.
Chow down on a post-ride outdoor lunch near the Hudson River and share stories from the ride. Playa Cancun is offering a prix fixe menu including an appetizer, main meal, and non-alcoholic drinks. Want to spice it up a bit? Well, the bar will be open! You can also bring a guest to lunch.
Sign up for the ride on the RBC Ride Calendar. We'll send you a link to PayPal to pay for the lunch ($30/person) after you sign up.

This year, we have some exciting plans including a weekly club ride starting at the same time and location. This ride will have multiple routes and pace options with the goal of starting and ending together and an optional post-ride social at a local eatery. We also plan to feature two new series:(More Rides, More Leaders continues .
