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

This is a fairly traditional C route to Closter with a few little tweaks. Most of Columbus was repaved late 2015, but there's still a very rough section after you cross Durie. Lunch is at a pleasant diner, but it's not large, so if you're bringing a group, call the diner ahead of time and tell them how many and approximately when you'll get there. 202-767-7530. Bike parking in back of the diner against the building or against the ramp.

This is a good cold weather ride: short and easy with good diner food in the middle.
