67 Purdys, 77 Brewster, 96 Cold Spring miles A or B ride.

Requires a MetroNorth return from Purdys, Croton Falls, Brewster or Cold Spring.

This ride cuts a wide swath through Westchester and Putnam counties, past elegant estates and horse farms. Few cars. Hardpack on Mianis River Rd. Very hilly up to Pound Ridge with more climbing after lunch. The most difficult climbing starts towards end of ride. 5 mile spectacular descent into Cold Spring to end ride.
