      Orangetown Ramble to kick off spring
      Ed Molina
      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.

      Haverstraw - New City Loop
      Ed Molina
      Starting off at beautiful Haverstraw Bay County Park, we head north along Beach Rd with its gorgeous Hudson River views. Then we gradually climb up Gate Hill Rd, turning on Blanchard Rd to make our way down Call Hollow Rd and onto Route 306, where we enjoy the uncharacteristically low traffic on Saturday mornings. We then make our way to New City via Pomona Rd, among the orchards of S. Mountain Rd and then continue along the golf course on Zukor Rd. We finally make our way back on Route 304, down the helix and back to our starting point.
      Note: target pace will be 14-15 mph average, and we will regroup at the top of climbs.

      Harriman State Park - Tiorati Loop
      Ed Molina
      Join us on this inaugural RBC Harriman State Park ride as we enjoy traffic free (mostly), gorgeous riding in what we hope will become an RBC staple. We start at the Jackie Jones Trailhead parking area and head west, deeper into the park and are quickly rewarded with stunning views along the Lake Welch causeway. We continue along Route 106 with its thrilling winding curves, before making the left around the circle onto Seven Lakes Pkwy south. After making the U-turn onto Lake Welch Pkwy, we make the gradual climb before a steep decent (which we take cautiously), making a sharp U-turn to head up the picturesque, winding climb that is Tiorati Brook Rd. We then make a left around the circle onto Seven Lakes Pkwy south and enjoy the beauty of Tiorati, Askoti and Skannatati Lakes before making the left around the next circle to make our final climb back up Route 106. The underpass marks the top of the climb and sets us on an easy finish back across the causeway to our starting point.
      Note: target pace will be 14-15 mph average, and we will regroup at the top of climbs.

      Nyack to GWB
      Ernie DiGiacomo
      Join us for this popular Sunday route. While we are targeting a 13-15 mph average pace, it’s more important to get some base miles in to start the season. From Nyack we’ll head south to 9W and come back along the scenic Henry Hudson Drive. We’ll plan to stop at Strictly and the ranger station.

      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.

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!)
