This ride will be co-led by Rockland Bicycling Club and Bicycle Touring Club of North Jersey.  It crosses both the Newburgh-Beacon and Bear Mountain Bridges, and offers fabulous Hudson Valley scenery along the way. There is a 60 mile and a shorter 40 mile option.

Meet at Haverstraw Bay Park, 21 Gagan Road, West Haverstraw.  We'll follow Bike Route 9 to Bear Mountain.  The ride continues north on 9W after the Bear Mountain Circle.  We'll drop down on the newly paved 218 by the West Point golf course, stopping for the obligatory pictures at the scenic overlook.  Then it's on to Newburgh where we'll cross the bridge for a brief refreshment stop in Beacon.  From there it's straight south on 9D back to the Bear Mountain Bridge, returning from there as we came.

Average speed: 15-17 mph overall average, 18-22 on the flats. 

Total distance: about 60 miles.

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