      RBC Sunday Club Ride
      Stephen Brehl

      Come join us on our weekly club ride that we plan to feature every Sunday. 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, this is a new and developing effort and options will be determined by ride leader availability.

      Route option: RBC Club Ride 45

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

      Pace: 16.3 mph average

      Terrain: rolling/hilly (57 ft/mile elevation gain)

      Regrouping: easy to miss turns

      Rest stops: We'll stop at about mile 17 for a quick rest, munch on something you bring, and restroom break at Haverstraw County Bay Park

      Rockland Lake - New City Loop
      Steve Crowell

      Join us for about 20mi so we can get back to work and chores :(

      This route isn't hilly and most of us will recognize the roads.

      This is a ride that anyone can ride as you won't get lost. Feeling strong? Go faster. Not feeling it...that's OK too, we won't leave you behind.

      Bring a mask if you like, a well cared for bike, spares and good cheer.

      Bad weather cancels ride - check back here 45mins befre start if it looks like weather will be a factor

      Taco Saturday - 29
      Duncan McMillan

      Yes, yes, I know it's supposed to be Taco Tuesday, but in my opinion alliteration is overused. So, "What is Taco Saturday?", I hear you ask.

      It's two rides starting out from Craft Taqueria in New City: this ride, a C+ pace (29 miles in length) and a B+ pace (37-miles led by Steve Brehl). The two routes start out together, split, and then rejoin later in the ride - it'll be fun to see where and when we cross paths.

      Anyways, we'll all meet up back at the restaurant and grab a delicious lunch of tacos and other Mexican-inspired goodies. Everyone will be on their own for their lunch check, but as a special incentive I am sponsoring this ride with a free beer or a "margarita-in-a-can," Just email me at Sign In to let me know your preference and I'll have it there chilled and waiting for you! The choices are:

      • Modelo Especial
      • Modelo Negra
      • Session IPA
      • 'Margarita-in-a-can'

      Here's a link to Craft Taqueria should you care to peruse the menu - Sign In

      A few customer comments:

      "The name says it all. I will add, authenticity. These tacos are authentic and delicious. I haven't had this type of taco since I was back in Mexico. The staff is great. The juices are delicious."

      "This place is absolutely amazing. The food is something special. There isn't another place like this in Rockland County. Chef Jeff works magic ..."

      Even our own Steve Crowell chimed in: "This was a really great find! We had Mex Street Corn, beef empanadas and short rib tacos. All were delicious! Jeff the owner was welcoming and I can't wait to go back and try more!"

      Disclosure - Craft Taqueria is owned and operated by Lisa Kreisel's son, Jeff.

      RBC Sunday Club Ride
      Group Meetup (Leader TBD)

      Note: we are posting Sunday club rides as meet-up rides that may or may not have a leader since these routes are well known to most. Our hope is to recreate the success of our Monday and Thursday Rockland Lake rides on Sundays. Please sign up for the ride if you plan to attend so that others know they'll have company.

      Come join us on our weekly club ride this Sunday. This is the shorter 20 mile route which takes us along beautiful lakes and mostly peaceful roads. 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.

      Route option: RBC Club Ride 20

      Pace: 13 mph average

      Terrain: rolling (44 ft/mile elevation gain)

      Regrouping: as needed

      Rest stops: We will re-group once before exiting Rockland Lake.

      This ride is in the development stage, but you can bet your sweet patootie that we'll be riding to someplace far away to drink beer and most likely taking a train back. So mark your calendars because shizz is gonna get real in the next few weeks after I plan this out.

      Hoping to work up some shorter routes and less speedy groups too for those that don't want to ride as far or as fast, but want to join in the festive libations nonetheless.

      Get out your red sharpies and X out the date, Players!

Our hope is to recreate the success of our Monday and Thursday Rockland Lake rides on Sundays. Please sign up for the ride if you plan to attend so that others know they'll have company.

      Come join us on our weekly club ride that we plan to feature every Sunday. 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, this is a new and developing effort and options will be determined by ride leader availability.

      Route option: RBC Club Ride 35

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

      Pace: 15 mph average

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

      Regrouping: as needed

      Rest stops: We'll stop at about mile 17 for a quick rest, munch on something you bring, and restroom break at Haverstraw County Bay Park

      Giro di Rockland - Perkins Stage
      Ed Molina

      The challenge... the beauty... the glory!

      Riders near and far are drawn to our county's beautiful mountains, so let's enjoy our local treasures as we chase the blue jersey (Italy's version of the polka-dot). Come and embrace our stunning climbs, enjoy the magnificent views, and bask in your achievement! They will sing songs of your glory, and your grandchildren will marvel at the tales of what you have accomplished!

      There are three stages in this series, each with increasing total elevation gain - Bradley Stage, Harriman Stage and Perkins Stage, respectively. Also, we hope to offer various pace options so you can dominate at your own pace. Finally, as with many worthy achievements, this one comes with a trophy; completing this series gains you the much coveted Giro di Rockland prize!

      Climbs: Perkins, Mott Farm, Gate Hill, Cheescote (Park side)

      Pace: 15-16 mph average

      Terrain: very hilly (97 ft/mile elevation gain)

      Regrouping: as needed to keep the group together

      Rest stops: None planned, but we'll grab a cold beverage at the Waterclub afterwards.
