Horse Farms, Rock Walls & A Gay-Owned Market

30, 60, 80 miles

Saturday, June 22, 2019


This ride should be absolutely stunning. Lots of quiet, picturesque country roads going through horse country in Fairfield and Westchester Counties, and then down the lovely Old Putnam Rail Trail.

 

We'll take the 8:12 train from 125th Street to New Canaan. Then we'll proceed north on small country roads (all paved) to North Salem where we'll grab a bite at the über cute, gay-owned & operated Market at Union Hall. Then we'll continue north to Brewster where people wanting a ~30 mile ride can take MetroNorth back to the City. 

In Brewster we'll get on the Old Putnam Rail Trail (aka North County / South County Trail) and head south. The full ride from New Canaan up to Brewster, and then back to the City is ~80 miles. Those wanting a ~60 mile ride can take MetroNorth back from Pleasantville.

 

The route is still being tweaked, but this is the general idea:

The initial part of the ride is a bit hilly simply because I've prioritized quiet roads over flat roads. All the roads are paved, so the ride is completely skinny tire friendly.
