Ride Schedule

RBC to Restart Rides With New Rules

By Mike Hays on 5/29/20

RBC Club Ride Covid-19 Safety Procedures 
 
RBC rides are open again on a limited basis with a new set of guidelines to keep everyone safe while riding together. These guidelines are temporary and will change as circumstances dictate. We appreciate in advance that all club riders be mindful of these rules, of the safety of each other, and of those who are walking and sharing our roadways.  
 
Ride leader may have further requirements as stated in their ride post or at the beginning of each ride. Riders are to adhere to any ride leader's instructions before or during rides related to group safety. 
  • If you feel ill or have a fever, please do not join the group.
  • Ride leaders will set a size limit for each ride, not to exceed 10 as per current NYS guidance of groups of 10 or less. Smaller groups, where possible, are recommended.
  • will be limited to approximately 5 or somewhat larger if rides have a co-leader. Ride leaders will state the number of riders in advance.
  • All group riders must be club members and must pre-register online. If there is a size limit and too many enroll, those signing in as "definitely riding" will be given preference. 
  • Social distance is to be maintained at all times including start and end points, at rest breaks, and at stop signs. During riding we recommend maintaining a distance of 8-10 feet from the rider in front of you.
  • Each rider must bring a face mask. Masks are recommended any time social distance cannot be maintained and when cycling though villages, bike paths. In certain case, ride leaders may stop a group and ask that masks be put on. 
 
Let's be responsible cyclists at all times.

      Dawn Patrol - Old Tappan - Piermont - West Nyack
      No Leader
      Leader Not Coming: THIS RIDE IS CANCELLED DUE TO WEATHER

      Come on out for a nice spin to the south! Coffee/food in Piermont if the Group wants to stop.

      This is a no-drop ride and we'll target the higher end of the C category but heat/humidity and group 'gas level' will decide.

      Bring a good attitude, a big smile and a mask (JIC - yeah, it sucks!).

      Stephen Brehl
      Let's try a new Two Bridges Ride. We'll start in New City and take familiar roads to the GMC/TZ Bridge. This route uses the South County Trailway to get to the greenway in the Bronx. Many thanks to Leo for devising and testing the route. It promises to be an adventure.

      Pace: 15-16 mph average, 17-22 on the flats
      Terrain: 42 feet of elevation per mile. Not bad.
      Regrouping: we will regroup after climbs and at easy-to-miss turns
      Rest stops: We'll stop when we get to New Jersey.

      Ride instigator: Steve Brehl
      Contact: 845-304-9918

      Riders must have face coverings from crossing the bridges, and in case we need to stop where distancing isn't possible.

      Haverstraw to Saddle River
      Ed Molina
      This ride is mostly on bike friendly roads, with tree-lined streets and includes a fair amount of Ramapo riding with very sparse traffic on Saturdays. We also take a dip into Northern NJ along some lovely roads with straight, long runs that are perfect for maintaining a nice, high pace.

      Covid alert: Please bring a face covering for times when social distancing is minimized.

      Route: Sign In (updated route)

      Pace: 14-16 mph average
      Terrain: hilly (66 ft/mile elevation gain)
      Regrouping: we will regroup after climbs and at major turns
      Rest stops: there is one planned stop to restock fuel and hydration at the 30 mile mark

      HOLD THE DATE - 2020 RBC Century
      Ernie DiGiacomo
      HOLD THE DATE FOR RBC CENTURY RIDE - 3 RIDES

      What do I need to bring?
      Deli, water, and bathroom stops will be noted in advance.
      You must bring:
      • Helmet – please bring with you to registration
      • Photo ID
      • Extra tube, tools, and pump
      • Water bottle or hydration pack
      Are the roads closed to traffic?
      The roads are open to traffic. Cyclists must obey all traffic laws while on this ride. Cyclists should signal all turns. We recommend participants buddy-up for this self-paced, unsupported ride. Please ride single file, as several of the communities through which we will be riding have laws that ban riding two abreast. It is essential that each rider checks and decides when it is safe to turn at intersections.


      It looks like rain/it's too cold for me?
      The RBC Century is a "rain or shine" event. In the event of extreme weather, we will keep you updated on the status of the ride on our website!
