NYCC Suspends all ...

It will come as no surprise, that the New York Cycle Club’s Board of Directors has decided to CANCEL all Club-sponsored activities for the next eight weeks. This cancellation includes all SIGs, STSs, Club rides, laps-in-the-park training rides, social events, and Club meetings. For more details, please see the home page.

This is a nice summer ride with lots of shade and an ice cream treat after lunch. Also, contrary to Cycle Club Rule #1 (There's always a hill after lunch), this ride takes the down-trending rail trail immediately after lunch! Keep the group fairly small so it won't take too long to get served at either Giovanni's or Louie's. If it's really hot out, stop at the Dunkin Donuts on Piermont Rd on the way home so everyone can get ice in their water bottles.

There's a slightly shorter version of the route (45 miles) that cuts out the steepish hill on Sickletown Rd. and would be the better route for a C-12 or 13 ride: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/28583152
