There are two climbs, up Little Tor Road from South Mountain and then over The Hook on 9W. Route is to Piermont, Clarke Rail Trail to Western Hwy, Strawtown Rd, South Mountain. Then we proceed up Little Tor to Phillips Hill, Main Street, Old 304, Goebbels to 304 to Old Haverstraw Road into Congers to Lake Street then to Rockland Lake. And back!
It’s always good to spice things up with a different starting point every once in a while. This week, let’s meet up in Harriman State Park (if anyone wants to ride share from Nyack, we can do that too!)
The starting point is the Reeves Meadow Information Center on Seven Lakes Drive near Rt 17 in Harriman State Park (it has free parking!) We’ll ride Seven Lakes Drive to the Palisades Parkway spinning up and coasting down about 1,600 feet of elevation. Since there is no place to buy refreshments (except for vending machines at Tiorati Circle), bring enough water and a snack.
Two states, two counties, two wheels and one big reservoir. Join us for a fun Sat morning spin from Nyack to Nanuet via North Jersey where we will circle where Lake Tappan straddles NY and NJ.
This ride starts at 830a in Nyack at Memorial Park — meet at the corner of Piermont and Depew. We’ll follow the river South and turn at Sparkill and proceed West through Tappan, Old Tappan (NJ), River Vale. Then we cross Veterans Memorial Highway by Blue Hill Golf Course and take Sickletown Rd. Right before Rt 59 we turn right and circle back on Western Highway. Return via Bradley Parkway with a less hilly option of Western Hwy and the Clark Rail Trail if the group prefers.
