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.

A new version of ‘A Ridge to Far’ the old all-class route to Kensico Dam Plaza. This ride travels some of Fred's classic roads, a fabric woven with great threads. Optional Bailout Armonk to White Plains MNRR Ride With GPS route is to Cold Spring via Sprout Brook Rd adds 4 miles but is well worth the effort.

Climbs Dennytown Road and ends with a 5 mile descent of Rt 301 to Cold Spring. Much nicer and more bike friendly than Rt 9 north of Peekskill.
