One of the best things about cycling is that when you run out of ideas for new routes, you can recycle your fave rides — backwards. We’ll ride around Lake Tappan this week but spin up from Western Hwy to Sickletown Road and return through Orangeburg.
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. Continue reading “June 3: The Two States Of Lake Tappan”
