NOTE: this was originally posted as a Saturday 03/23 ride in error. Sorry for any inconvenience that this may have caused.
Let's kick off the spring as temperatures climb into the 50's with a relatively easy ride (mostly flat) through the southern part of our county. We start at Nyack Memorial Park and ride south along the river, up a short climb up 9W before crossing over for a short foray into Jersey. Then we head north again along the Jos Clarke Trail, across to Sickletown as we head north before returning south along Western Highway. We end the ride with a gorgeous, serene climb up Bradley Hill, before a short Nyack loop that returns us to the start. (Insider secret: this will be a dry-run for one of the stages in our exciting new Tour de Rockland series coming this season!)
Note: target pace will be 14-15 mph average, and we will regroup at the top of climbs.
