A or B ride.

Requires a MetroNorth return from Purdys, 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.

Before Your Ride

Make sure your bike is in GOOD working order. Pump up tires to the pressure specified on the sidewall. Bring essentials: helmet, 2 spare tubes, a pump, patch kit, 2 water bottles, pocket food, ID, money, credit card, and a train pass. Eat a good breakfast consisting of carbohydrates and proteins.


Bicycle helmets are required head attire for all NYCC club rides, and "ipod"-like devices are not allowed.
