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.

Vigorous climbfest: only the most fit need apply. 6000' vertical gain.

Not accessible by rail. Access is by car, via Rt 28 west 31 miles from Exit 19 of the NY State Thruway/ I-87. Big Indian is the intersection of Rt 28 and Rts 47 to the south and Rt 92. Parking is just west of the intersection on the south (left) side of Rt 28. It is about a 2 and a half hour drive from NYC. 

A public drinking water pipe is on Sugarloaf, on the left, less than 0.1 mile past the turn for Red Hill.
