June 3: The Two States Of Lake Tappan
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.
Bring your helmet, water and flat fixins. Approx distance 25 miles, avg see 15 mph. Questions? Email dave@NyackNewsAndViews.com.
Pace & Terrain – Pace = C+ (about 15 mph)
Start/End point – Memorial Park, corner of Piermont & Depew Avenues in Nyack. This is a no-drop ride.
Fair weather friends: if it’s raining 30 minutes before ride time or if WeatherUnderground.com predicts severe storms during the ride, we’re not going to risk it.
Please try to arrive a few minutes before 830a so we can start promptly! Make sure you bring your helmet, water bottles of water and anything necessary for bike repair (air pump/CO2, tubes, patch kit, etc.)
