Brian:

Highlights include wild and wonderful Berkshire Road, cruising along the Housatonic on Schaghticoke Road, a pristine woodland climb along Macedonia Brook, long views over the rolling orchards and farms of Dutchess County, and a rip-roaring 6-mile descent at the end of the ride.

Lunch stop in Amenia, mile 28, but don’t eat too heavily: you go straight up Cascade Mountain after lunch.

Pay attention to pace and ride time: train service at Dover Plains runs every two hours.

Recommended tires: 28c or larger
