      Sunday Club Ride - Vintage Version
      Stephen Brehl
      Sorry for the last minute post. It's that kind of weekend.
      For a little variety we'll reach back occasionally to this former weekly club ride. We did it a few weeks ago and had a great time on some of the stretches that lend themselves well to group riding. We will try to finish before the worst of the day's heat.
      No Rockland route is completely flat, but this one avoids the epic climbs. Starting in New City, we take Strawtown/Sickletown Roads to Pearl River. Over to Rivervale Road and Old Tappan Road in NJ, and Western Highway back to West Nyack. Old Mill to Valley Cottage. Rockland Lake via Lake Road and then back to New City.

      We'll regroup at a couple of easily missed turns and at the top of the one significant climb.
      The ride starts at David's Bagels in New City. The store is located at 64 North Main Street, next to Shoprite. If you drive to the ride there's plenty of parking. Please be considerate and leave the prime spaces in front of the stores open.

      Average speed: 16+ mph overall average, 17-22 on the flats.

      Total distance: about 38 miles with an option for 10 fewer miles.

      Route (approximately): https://www.strava.com/routes/17800465https://www.strava.com/routes/17800465

      Rain at the start will cancel the ride. If it rains later we'll get wet taking a shortcut home.

      Semi Social - Closter
      Bob Urtnowski

      Hot day, early start to get back before the sun gets overhead.

      Heading straight down Strawtown, turning east to the rail trail and then south down 9w. Make the turn back north on Closter, past Lake Tappan, up Old Mill, Kings Hwy, Ridge, S. Mountain, Zukor to Main. Pretty fast route, very little climbing by RBC standards.

      This is not a no drop ride. Meaning that I'm not looking to leave anyone behind but I'm also not much a shepard. We'll soft pedal regroup after climbs as necessary but mind the gap. Avg. speed should be somewhere around 16ish.

      Self supported ride, bring food, tools, GPS file, etc., Stop once at the Country Deli in Pearl River for water.

      Happy to have faster/slower riders break off..

      Gravel Ride: Tappan-->Dobbs Ferry via Clark, Esposito, TZB & OCA
      Dave Zornow

      Let's get your gravel on and ride the road never travelled by cars, crossing the river to Dobbs Ferry for coffee.

      Route includes the Clark Trail, Esposito Trail, The Path on the TZB across the Hudson, the Westchester River Walk and the Old Croton Aqueduct Trail (OCA).

      This ride is not recommended for road bikes as the OCA is maintained in a rustic kinda way. It's perfect for hybrids and mountain bikes, though.

      President's New Member Ride
      Cynthia Turner

      Welcome to all our New Members!

      I'd like take this time to get to know you while taking a ride that's, senic, fun and perfect for conversation.

      After the ride, we'll gather at David's Bagels for coffee, bagels & ?? provided by the Club.

      Don't worry about distance, speed or your ability to 'hang-on' - this is a casual ride and there are no points for 1st place - PLUS, I have the credit card for the snacks! ?Ÿ??

      Plan on getting to the start location 10-15m early so we can talk about the rules of the road and get ready together.

      We park to the left of the bagel shop usually however if you can't find a spot or ride to the ride, you can't miss us.

      If you're having trouble you can call my cell - 914-714-2439

      Hope to see you there!

      Covered Bridge Classic

      2022 COVERED BRIDGE CLASSIC

      This is an Unafilliated Ride listed on RBC so that we may ride together

      Event Website for More INFO & Registration: https://coveredbridgeclassic.com/

      Same great format as last year.

      The Covered Bridge Classic is a premier Pennsylvania ride now in its 43rd year. It offers beautiful routes of 100 miles, 65 miles and 35 miles, (actual mileage may vary), in Lancaster County. Each route traverses through covered bridges and passes Amish farms. All routes cover rolling terrain with moderate climbing.

      The multiple start locations were highly preferred in our rider surveys and will be continued in 2022. This minimizes congestion for improved safety.

      • There are up to 7 start locations to choose from depending on which distance ride you will be participating in.
      • You will be asked to pick a start location and ride distance in the registration process so we can provide you with the correct route information. You can ride any distance that is served from your parking location. Final route information will be sent out closer to ride time.
      • There is limited parking capacity at each start location. You will be asked during registration, whether you will be riding, driving or carpooling to the start location.
