The 2019 Fall Foliage Ride Series

The Fall Foliage ride series is a great opportunity to get in some miles while enjoying the fall colors.  There are rides at every level.

  • Saturday, October 12th: Fall Foliage #1 - Croton
    A rolling ride through Westchester ending up at the Croton-Harmon Metro North Station. Sign ups for: A19, B17 & 18, B15 & 16

  • Sunday, October 13th: Fall Foliage for C-Riders #1 - Bridges of Ulster County
    It's too early in the season to see fall colors in the city so we're heading up north to Ulster County. In addition to leaf peeping, we get to ride four classic bridges: the Springtown Truss Bridge in New Paltz (pictured below), the recently reopened Rosendale Trestle Bridge, Perrine's Bridge (2nd oldest covered bridge in NY), and of course the one and only Walkway Over the Hudson. Some of the ride is on unpaved trails; tires 28 mm (or wider) are suggested. Elevation gain is 1200 ft over 40 miles, not 1700 ft (RWGPS got confused by the Hudson River and Rondout Creek crossings). Lunch is at a vegetarian restaurant in Rosendale. Sign Ups

  • Saturday, October 19th: Fall Foliage #2 - Mianus
    Train ride up to Stamford and head north to the CT/NY border before biking back to NYC. Many pretty backroads. Sign ups for: A19, B17 & 18, B15 & 16

  • Sunday, October 20th: Fall Foliage for C-Riders #2 - Oyster Bay
    Loop out from Queens through Westbury to take in the annual Oyster Festival. After, we head south through Muttontown Preserve and down the Bethpage Bikeway to finish in Massapequa. Very pretty. Sign Ups
