Ride starts and ends at Dinosaur Playground on Riverside Dr. at W. 97th St.

This is a standard C route to Piermont but with a different route coming home. The outbound route goes through Tallman Mountain State Park and comes down an unpaved road/trail that can easily be done on a skinny-tire road bike. However, if the weather has been wet, you may want to skip the dirt section by staying on Rockland Rd. all the way down to Ferdon.

Pick up a picnic lunch (or bring your own) and head to the gazebo by the river. There are restrooms in the public library (yellow building near gazebo), but please go in to the desk and make a contribution to the book fund. Or use the restroom at Piermont Bicycle Connection across the square from the gazebo.

Note: as of spring 2016, the old Community Market is closed, so lunch choices in the immediate area are limited to Bunbury's, a pizza shop or the cafe at the bike shop.  There's also Canzona's Deli on Piermont Ave. across the canal from Ferdon.
