Ride starts at the northern terminus of #1 subway in the Bronx and ends with a Metro North ride home from Croton Harmon. This is a lovely, almost traffic-free ride through Westchester County (and probably the flattest route you can find there). After following the Trailways north, it encompasses three different crossings of the Croton Reservoir system. There are some unpaved sections around the reservoir area, but they are doable on a road bike. Before getting on the train home, stop at the Blue Pig for ice cream. 

REMINDER: If you list this as a club ride, please submit the Metro North train form for your return from Croton Harmon.
