Five Tips to Keep You Riding This Winter


Don't let Old Man Winter

hold you back from all the joy that can be had on Rockland's roads during the colder months! Winter bike rides can be some of the best riding you'll do all year. The air is fresh and crisp; the roads can be quiet and safe. Best of all, you will come home with a feeling of fulfillment, accomplishment, and a reduced level of stress. Here are five tips to keep you on the road enjoying your favorite pastime and logging some quality miles.

      RBC Sunday Club Ride
      Stephen Brehl

      Come join us on our weekly club ride that we feature every Sunday. In the winter we're more interested in getting miles together than setting speed records. There are three route options starting and ending at the same place, giving us an opportunity to socialize with old friends and to make new ones! We start at David's Bagels in New City so you'll be able to stock up on any needed goodies at the start and share a coffee or meal with fellow riders afterwards. The three routes are loops within loops so riders of different paces can cross paths along the way, and so groups can support each other.

      Although our hope is to offer all three routes at different pace options on a weekly basis, options will be determined by ride leader availability.

      Route option: RBC Club Ride 35 - Link and GPX are accessed through the Cue Sheet button below

      Pace: 16.2 mph average

      Terrain: rolling/hilly (52 ft/mile elevation gain)

      Regrouping: as needed

      Rest stops: Quick bathroom/water stop at a park midway as needed.

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

      Sunday Donut Ride - No Hills, No Sweat...Just Chill!
      Diane Harper

      OK, it's Sunday and it's cold. So that means a Donut Stop!

      This is possibly the flattest 40mi route in (mostly) Rockland so it won't be challenging from a climbing respect.

      We'll roll out at a steady pace but nothing supersonic. Fight the cold, have a coffee & donut and head back.

      No hills, no sweat...just chill!

      Weather looks clear but check the sky JIC...

      Dress in layers, bring spares and a smile.
