Another in a set of Wassaic to Poughkeepsie.

Bailout from Copake Falls to Wassaic 76 miles but trains run 2 hours apart from Wassaic.

If strong westerlies are blowing, headwind on return to Poughkeepsie.

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.
