Sat Aug 12: A Ride That’s Closter To Rockland
This week’s route has a little bit of everything: NY, NJ, a state park, a rail trail and a cute coffee stop in Closter, NJ. After meeting up at 830a at Nyack Memorial Park, we’ll ride south with an optional spin through Tallman State Park. We’ll ride 9W south to Tenafly and turn on Clinton Ave (viva la downhill!) and then turn back north on County Rd and Piermont Rd. It’s a 30 mile route on this no drop ride.
New policy: We need to leave on time! Please show up at 8:25 for this 8:30 ride so we can hit the road without delay (if you snooze you won’t cruise!)
Starting point is Nyack Memorial Park at the corner of Piermont & Depew Aves. 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.) This is a no-drop ride.
Wondering Weather Or Not We Will Ride? If rain threatens and you are wondering “weather” or not we are going to ride…if it’s raining 30 minutes before start time, go back to bed. Same decision if storms are predicted during the time we will be riding. Check WeatherUnderground.com for radar and an hour by hour forecast.
Looking ahead: It’s an away game on Sat Aug 19: We’ll meetup at Stricly Bikes in Fort Lee and take advantage of Park Ave being closed to traffic for “Citi Summer Streets” in NYC. Destination Brooklyn. Watch this space next week for details!
