72 miles, 2,500 ft of climbing
Meet up: 7:20am in Harlem (weather permitting)
It's hot and miserable out, so ride in the shade! We'll ride the Old Putnam Trail (aka South County & North County Trail) up to and around the Croton Reservoir. Here's the route…
This ride is about mileage and scenery, speed is secondary. The ride leader (Jay) will maintain a "somewhat moderate" pace. But if the group is large enough and people want to break into smaller groups, they're welcome to go faster or slower. People who want to ride fewer miles can turn around at any point. It’s an easy, mostly car-free route that’s pretty easy to navigate.
If you haven't ridden the Old Putnam Trail, here's some videos of what it's like:
