Jul 22: An “Away Game,” Bear Mtn to Cold Spring

BearMtn201203This week, we will follow where the Bear Went Over The Mountain. Sort of.

On Saturday we’ll meet up near Bear Mountain and ride to Cold Spring in Putnam County. We’ll start at the Jones Point parking area on 9W (aka the “Ramapo-Dunderburg Trailhead”).  If anyone wants to carpool (or needs a ride) from Nyack, we can still meet up at Memorial Park — but we should do that at 7:45a to allow enough time to get to the start point for the ride.

The Jones Point Parking area is on 9W at the bottom of the hill leading up to Bear Mountain. The lot is located just past River Road on the left side as you travel north. The starting point is about a 30 min drive from Nyack.

Saturday’s route will cross the Bear Mountain Bridge taking Route 9D to Cold Spring. It’s about 30 miles round trip. 

This no-drop ride  is rated B-.

We plan to depart at 8:30 from the Jones Point Parking area, so please try to arrive a few minutes before to prepare so we can leave on time. Make sure you bring your helmet, have food, 1-2 bottles of water and anything necessary for bike repair (air pump/CO2, tubes, patch kit, etc.)

If you need a ride or want to share a ride leaving Nyack at 7:45, contact Dave@NyackNewsAndViews.com.
