- 5AB200Revenge Of Ride To The Rip (And Back)Robert Panzera
We Are Going MEGA (Again) For The (Almost) Summer Solstice
Let's ride from Nyack to the Rip Van Winkle Bridge connecting Hudson and Catskill, NY, and then back. 200 miles of fun in the sun. If you are reading this ride description, start training now for this double century!
This is slated for a 5am start, so we can maximize riding in the daylight. For the ride approximately 15+ hours of daylight.
We'll pedal up the west side of the Hudson avoiding Route 9W as much as possible once we leave Rockland County, but sticking close to the river. Rolling through west shore towns of Cornwall, Newburgh, Marlboro, Milton, Kingston, Saugerties, and Catskill. Then over the Rip Van Winkle Bridge and down the east shore avoiding Route 9 as much as possible. Rolling through the towns of Germantown, Tivoli, Bard College, Rhinebeck, Poughkeepsie, Wappingers Falls, Beacon, Cold Spring, Peekskill, Crotonville, Ossining, and Tarrytown. Then back over the Hudson on the Shared Use Path. Shouldn't be crowded because it will be late in the day. Wow! What an adventure, huh?!
Pace & Regroups
This ride is listed as B pace, but we'll ere on the lower end of 14mph, because it's 200 miles. Yowsa! Regroups are listed as "Occasional", but we'll ride as a pack on flat and rolling terrain to maximize drafting and chances of surviving the distance, slowing to regroup over larger hills. We'll use convenience stores for rest stops and stop for lunch (cafe). The lunch stop will be short and sweet, under 30 min, so the rubber on our tires doesn't go cold. Come prepared to ride with abbreviated stops, so we don't get trapped riding in the dark on the tail end.
While you need to come to this ride correct, we will surely have an esprit de corps to help us all through the fun times, the crazy times, and the bad times. We will all go through lots of physical, mental, and emotional cycles, but we'll do this together. Think of this ride as the good old days from your childhood, when you'd leave your house in the morning to hang out with the local kids and then spend the entire day outside getting into adventures until the sun went down. On the flip side, if your childhood was bad (sorry to hear about that), don't think about that and just focus on how good you have it now being a member of the best bike club in the known universe, the Rockland Bicycling Club.
You could also ride part of the course?! That'll take some logistics on your part but it ain't unrealistic!
Onward to victory!
