Take the train to Cold Spring and climb Bear Mountain while the day is still cool.  Then ride back to Manhattan on a lovely route that uses 9W only when absolutely necessary. Deli stops in Tompkins Cove and West Nyack (with an ice cream shoppe for those who care to indulge).  Bring plenty of fluids and snack food. Water and restrooms at the Bear Mtn Carousel (vending machines take $1 bills). 

This ride can be done by strong C riders, but endurance is required - there are no bailouts.
