Let's have fun riding together safely in a pace line where everyone pulls (no more than 2 minutes) before rotating to the back. If we all work together an average of 20mph can be eventually achieved on this flat route. There will be a variations in ability but we would appreciate it if we stayed together until at least mile 17.5 (after Hamburg Turnpike traffic light). Ride will not go in rain or on wet roads. Rides with 20 or more riders will be split into 2 or more groups. ]

We'll ride up into Rockland county and meander over to Congers lake, where we'll stop for refreshments. Afterwards, we'll ride over to Rockland lake and ride down to Nyack via the hard pack along the river. We'll do a brisk B pace on the flats and each do our own pace on the climbs, regrouping as needed so that nobody is dropped. The posted route is a basic sketch of the plan, but we may make group decisions along the way to stretch the miles out a bit towards 40 miles and maybe other decisions to do less climbing. Ride will not go in rain or on wet roads. Rides with 20 or more riders will be split into 2 or more groups. ]
The classic loop to Lincoln Park. Expect a max of about 17 on the flat parts which is most of the route. Optional pizza afterwards at Cucina 347 in Oakland. Meet by the railroad tracks. Ride will not go in rain or on wet roads. Rides with 20 or more riders will be split into 2 or more groups. ]

Join me for a ride from Mountainview RR to Green Village Deli. It's time for an Avocado BLT or snack of your choice! I'd like to depart as close to 8:30 as possible to be aware of any heat later in the morning. This will be a mid-B pace, a few climbs, but nothing crazy. We will regroup as necessary. We will return via Hanover Road instead of Ridgedale to avoid a few lights and that rotten RR crossing! Bring a snack and plenty to drink. Summer's here this week!

After a few hiccups on our first scouting ride I have a revised cue sheet/RWGPS (to be posted later), which hopefully works this time. The terrain is flat to rolling and thus suitable for D riders who want to advance to C. We'll stop at D'Ercole's on the way back. Our average speed will be around 10MPH. NO ONE WILL BE DROPPED! As a friendly reminder: Bring water, a helmet (mandatory), and have your bike in good working order. Ride will not go in rain or on wet roads. Rides with 20 or more riders will be split into 2 or more groups. ]

The Great Oak gravel start site is available again. It has been cleared out and freshly graded. However, there are no bathroom facilities, so plan accordingly. First bathrooms will be at mile 7. The route will follow familiar roads, but they will be in a different, more comfortable, and safer sequence. We will include the open section of the Pequannock Path. Pace will be somewhere in the 13s. Hope you can join me. Ride will not go in rain or on wet roads. Rides with 20 or more riders will be split into 2 or more groups. ]
I am planning on doing a route I found on line that looks a bit different. I modified the route I found to eliminate an out and back on the Columbia Trail, tweak the start and end locations, and add a bit more gravel. We will have a rest stop at Oldwick General Store around mile 25. Moderate pace (equivalent to a "B" level road ride) with regrouping after climbs or as otherwise needed so no one is dropped. Ride will not go in rain or on wet roads. Rides with 20 or more riders will be split into 2 or more groups. ]

We will probably average around 15.5-17.0 mph for the complete ride.
Last week's average ranged from 16.5 to 18mph.
We ride together from the start to Long Meadow (Mile 3.8).
We then regroup at Warwick Brook Road (Mile 10.2) and ride together to the start of Arden Valley Road (Mile 15.6) and the 850' climb. At Tiorati Circle (Mile 10.7), we regroup and have a short break at the facilities.

From Tiorati Circle, you can continue with the course or take Seven Lakes Road back to the start and reduce the ride by 7.5 miles and 775' of climbing.

As a B* leader my goal is to have a safe and enjoyable ride. Riders have the route and can go as fast as they wish. Passing me is OK and encouraged if you want to ride faster - just know where you're going as we can't chase after lost riders. Those that pass me aren't considered 'off the ride' - they are just ahead of me! This is a classic and challenging ride - enjoy! Ride will not go in rain or on wet roads. Rides with 20 or more riders will be split into 2 or more groups. ]
One of your co-leader was "forced" into a temporary hiatus and last week's weather did not cooperate. So, now is the time to get back. Of course, a libation stop is planned. Considering we could be going thru our first heat wave of the season, we will take it easy. So, bring plenty of fluid and make sure you stay hydrated. Ride will not go in rain or on wet roads. Rides with 20 or more riders will be split into 2 or more groups. ]

  • Sorrento's
  •  CANCELLED 
A flat ride to Sorrento's, then we'll have a little fun with a moderate climb leading to a nice descent on Greenbank, followed by a climb up Jacksonville which has its own nice descent. Then it’s all flat after that. This will be a peppy B ride, so expect a max of about 17 on the flat parts, perhaps a bit slower on the return, regrouping when necessary and at the top of any climbs. This is a popular ride, so any ride leaders who sign up should be prepared to lead a group. Copycat rides are also encouraged for different levels and to keep the groups at a manageable size. Ride will not go in rain or on wet roads. Rides with 20 or more riders will be split into 2 or more groups. ]

A classic Sunday Rules route... Rides with 20 or more riders will be split into 2 or more groups. ]
After great success in the last 2 years, this is back! Please read fully before registering: Teaming again with Marcy Squadron to provide a fun cycling experience, and as usual, spiced up with historical, cultural and gastronomic elements. This is similar to the structure of “Walpack Ride and Dinner” but in South Jersey. We are adventuring to the land of flat in Burlington County, South Jersey, exploring two historical towns; Smithville (https://www.tripsavvy.com/complete-guide-to-historic-smithville-new-jersey-5097215 )and Batso (https://batstovillage.org/ ) and ending the day with great seafood, steaks and cold beer on the water bays around the Atlantic Ocean. We will be teaming with the Bicycle Club of Philadelphia and will have a group of cyclists joining us. You will be given some time to explore both towns. IMPORTANT INFO: 1: You are welcomed to join the ride only. However we would like to see members that are committed to the full plan; the ride and the dinner. IMPORTANT: When registering please note if staying for dinner. Restaurant capacity is limited. Also, the restaurant needs exact timely count. Please remove your name immediately if your plan changed. At the moment dinner size is LIMITED to 15! 2: We ABSOLUTELY MUST start on time due to the dinner reservation. Assume 1:45 to 2 hours drive from North Jersey. Summer Jersey shore traffic can make it even more…so please plan ahead. We plan to start riding at 10:15, meaning ride briefing starts at 10, and dinner around 4pm. Once again, I promised the restaurant that we would be ready to be seated at 4, so we can’t be late. 3: A suggestion: You can consider making it a weekend in the area and avoid summer shore traffic; there are hotels and great local attractions. It is about 20 minutes drive from Atlantic City 4: Bring clothes to change into after the ride for dinner. 5: Bring CASH for the restaurant. I would recommend $75+, depending on your appetite. Please be responsible for drinking and driving after. It will be one check per table, based on each individual consumption. Restaurant is Oyster Creek in Leeds Point, NJ: http://oystercreekrestaurant.com/ 6: Parking: This is the Greenhead season and therefore it was strongly recommended that we do not park near the restaurant but in the Village of Historical Smithville, which is 2 miles from the restaurant. That will be our start and end point and then driving to restaurant. 7: The ride: Given the flat nature of the area, this will be a fast B level ride. But still a B ride!! 8: We will have two brief refreshment stops, mainly for liquid and bathrooms and not eating stops. I suggest that you have some lunch in your pocket since we have early wonderful dinner. 9: This is first and foremost a social event, as we have always done. We want to have fun, we want to stay as a group and we insist on safety. No “Lone Rangers” please. Safety, group ride rules and club rules are nonnegotiable. If necessary, we will split the group. More details will be provided. We are looking forward to seeing you all. Note: Ride will not go in rain or on wet roads or 90 degrees or higher. Ride will not go in rain or on wet roads or over 90 degrees Rides with 20 or more riders will be split into 2 or more groups. ]
