Join your NYCC friends – or make new ones – on the July 4th weekend at New Paltz.

When: July 2-4, 2016

Where: SUNY New Paltz

What: Join your NYCC friends – or make new ones – on the July 4th weekend at New Paltz. Three great days and two nights of fireworks, sightseeing and perhaps the best cycling in the region for all classes of riders!

Feedback from New Paltz 2015:

“Amazing weekend!!! Organized, great rides that were well led. Camaraderie with awesome people. Have been raving about NYCC since I got back.”

“The dorms were clean and comfortable … Saturday’s dinner was an excellent choice! The rides were beautiful and challenging.

“Accommodations were great, the rides were well planned, as well as the other activities — trains, fireworks, walking tour, dinner, lunch stops.

“The C-ride from New Paltz to Brewster on Day 3 was phenomenal with just the right ratio of uphill to down — 20%/80%”
