For a guy like Fred Steinberg, who disparages "gratuitous hill climbs," he seems to have gone out of his way to find every hill to climb between here and hell (Purgatory.)

Original route went over Bull Mtn Pond and down Mine Torne Rd, both in West Point Military Academy; both closed. I have re-routed it over Rt 6 from Central Valley and back on 7 Lakes Drive. Rt 6 is actually a very good climb on a bike, but for the cars whizzing by, and the confusing issue of whether local enforcement do or do not believe this is legal on a bike. 

Metro North bike pass required; of course!
