May 23-26, 2014

As sure as spring turns to summer and the swallows return to Capistrano, the New York Cycle Club descends upon the Berkshire Hills and settles into the small towns of Sheffield, Great Barrington and destinations in between for the Memorial Day holiday weekend. First known as “The Sheffield Weekend,” this event has become so popular over the years and grown to encompass more of the vicinity that it is now called “The Berkshires Weekend.”

Join us for 3–4 days of cycling through the beautiful country roads, farmland and of course the Berkshire Mountains. Rides are planned for A, B and C levels.

Where We Will Meet

Most A and B rides start each morning at Sheffield High School on Berkshire School Road in Sheffield.

Most C rides will start in Great Barrington (location TBD).

Information Package

An information package will be emailed to everyone the week prior to Memorial Day. To ensure that each member of your party attending the Berkshires Weekend receives the information packet containing cue sheets and useful details for the weekend, please email [email protected] with the who, where and email address of everyone in your party. Knowing the who, and where will also help us better plan the weekend. If you are not planning to join us for the Club Cocktail Hour, please send your email address to [email protected] so that you can receive the information package.

Riding up on Friday

To maximize your riding opportunities, there will be rides from New York City to the Berkshires using Metro-North trains to give us a head start to the country. Please see the ride listings for details of the rides.

This year we will be providing luggage pick-up and drop-off out of New York City to the Berkshires.

Round trip will be $25 per person. Space is limited, so please sign up early.  See Luggage Service on this page.
