Registration is closed
It's a great time of year to ride up Perkins Drive, and we'll do it before the crowds arrive for GFNY.  Starting in New City, we'll take Bike Route 9 up to Bear Mountain and continue up Perkins.  This time of year we're just getting our legs, so we'll be enjoying the views more than racing to the top.  After a long, informative discussion with a police officer about riding the traffic circle over to Seven Lakes Drive, we'll try a little different route.  We'll backtrack to Mott Farm, then take Gate Hill to 106 to Kanawauke Circle for the beautiful ride to historic Sloatsburg.  From there we'll ride to Suffern and back to New City.

The ride starts at David's Bagels in New City.  The store is located at 64 North Main Street, next to Shoprite.  If you drive to the ride there's plenty of parking.  Please be considerate and leave the prime spaces in front of the stores open. 

Average speed: 16 mph overall average, 18-22 on the flats. 

Total distance: 60 miles.

This is not a no-drop ride.  Route sheets are available at the start.  

Rain at the start will cancel the ride.  If it rains later we'll get wet.
