      Long Meadow Wildlife Ride from New City or Kakiat
      No Leader
      Leader Not Coming: **** DUE TO EXCESSIVE HEAT, THIS RIDE HAS BEEN CANCELLED ****

      HEAT INDEX VALUES...Around 105 to 115 Mid-day Saturday
      Due to the extreme temperatures at the return of the ride I thought it was prudent to cancel this ride and opt for a shorter route. I have posted an A ride for Dave’s Norwood, Northvale, Closter Route. Sorry for the last minute change.

      There are always wilderness friends on view on this route. We've seen bears, pileated woodpeckers, egrets, herons, snakes, and turtles in the past. Mother Nature will have some surprise in store for us on Saturday.

      There are two distance options. One is to start from New City and meet up with riders in Suffern for a total of about 55 miles. The other option is to join in Suffern for about 40 miles or so. Either one offers the beautiful scenery of Long Meadow Road followed by the satisfying climb up to Kanawauke Circle. We'll sail down Willow Grove and return to New City through Pomona.

      If you plan to join us in Suffern, we'll meet you at Kakiat Park on Route 202. Be ready to roll at 8:50.

      Average speed: 16 mph overall average, 18-22 on the flats.

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

      Bike Nyack: Norwood, Northvale, Closter (for a hot day)
      Ernie DiGiacomo
      Here's a cool shortened, flatter spin for a hot, Hot, HOT! day.

      25 miles. Only 473 ft of climbing. Route goes out through Tappan and Summit St in Northvale, turns around in Closter (maybe a stop?) and returns on Piermont Rd.

      Here's a link to a route map overlay on Sign In

      Starting point is Nyack Memorial Park at the corner of Piermont & Depew Aves. Make sure you bring your helmet, have food, 1-2 bottles of water and anything necessary for bike repair (air pump/CO2, tubes, patch kit, etc.) This is a no-drop ride.

      Wondering Weather Or Not We Will Ride? If rain threatens and you are wondering “weather” or not we are going to ride…if it’s raining 30 minutes before start time, go back to bed. Same decision if storms are predicted during the time we will be riding. Check Sign In for radar and an hour by hour forecast.

      New City/Old Tappan Ride
      Stephen Brehl
      For this hot day it's the old standard offering 38 or 28 mile options with very limited climbing. No rides in Rockland are completely flat, but this has no 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, 18-22 on the flats.

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

      Route sheets are available at the start, or get the GPX link below.

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

      Rockland Lake All Levels Ride
      Paul Langus
      RBC's FAMOUS (mentioned in Bicycling Magazine) LAKE RIDE IS BACK AFTER A LONG WINTER!!
      This is an all-level ride. The ride will start on the outer flat that runs from the south lot to the north parking area. If you're a little late, just ride north, and you'll eventually run into us. We'll then regroup and may continue to do some straights or go around the outer road (depending on the group). This is a nice easy ride designed to get the winter kinks out.

      The 55th Annual Ride to Montauk*
      No Leader
      Leader Not Coming: One of the reasons the Ride to Montauk is so popular is that it is one of the flattest rides in the entire area.
      We pedal on quiet back roads past mansions, the ocean, farms, windmills, and the most beautiful sections of the Hamptons. Whether you are a beginner or an expert, this is the ride for you! Start your day in Manhattan, Babylon, or Mastic Shirley and pick the distance that’s right for you -- 25 miles, 50 miles, 73 miles, 108 miles, or 150 miles. All routes end in Montauk, so even if your friends are pedaling a different distance, you can all meet up at a rest stop or at the finish for the post-ride party! Rain or Shine. Don’t forget that this ride is one-way -- it ends in Montauk, and you’ll need a way to get home again. You can get picked up by a friend, or you can take our Optional transportation home from Montauk after the ride for your bike and you: $65 - $200. You can NOT take your bike home on the train this weekend. (LIRR rules, and they mean it!)
      Fee: Prices start at $99 for the 25-mile route; $200 for all other routes.
