NYCC resumes limited operations ...

Starting Wednesay April 15th, will are going to re-open the ride sign-up system for virtual rides (Zwift, TrainerRoad, Peloton Digital, Rouvy, etc.) and similar on your trainer rides.  We had tried this earlier in the year — before the pandemic — but had few takers.  But things are different now. For more details, please see the home page.

Ride starts at Dinosaur Playground on Riverside Dr. opposite W. 97th St.  Restrooms are on left.

Easy, pleasant route to Piermont for lunch. The climb up Rockleigh Rd. before lunch is lovely and not difficult. Then go through Tallman Mt. State Park, including a short unpaved road/trail that can easily be done on a road bike. (If the ground is wet, avoid the unpaved section by staying on Rockland Rd. down to Ferdon; then turn right and follow Ferdon into Piermont.) Return route uses Kings Hwy. over to Old Tappan, then Tappan Rd. and Knickerbocker to Madison. Instead of going all the way up Walnut, go to Jones Rd. and Linden to reach Palisade Ave. for a different way up the hill.

NOTE: Spring of 2016, the Community Market in Piermont was closed, making for fewer lunch options: Bunberry, Two Kings Pizza, and the cafe at Piermont Bicycle Connection. Small cafe across from old Market is very slow.
