Larchmont, Scarsdale or Rye

37 to 66 Miles

Saturday, April 18, 2020


Thre's a lot of new stuff to see in week two and some of it is absolutely stunning…

 

We'll start the ride in Inwood and then ride up the South County Trail to Broxville and then over to Larchmont. If you haven't ridden in this area before – parts of it are simply gorgeous. We'll all stop for a bit at Umbrella Point in Larchmont which overlooks Larchmont Harbor (🎥). If we're lucky the Larchmont Yacht Club will be setting sail for their Saturday races. Everyone will also go past Premium Millpond which is über picturesque.

 

Here's an overview of the routes. (Click the image to see a version with more detail)…

STS Week 2

After Larchmont the groups will diverge – Century riders will head to Rye, Healthy Habits and Metric Century riders will head back to the City through interesting parts of New Rochelle and the Bronx…

 

Healthy Habits Riders ride with Metric Century riders through some nice residential areas in New Rochelle, then take a greenway through Pelham Bay Park (lovely 🎥) where they diverge from the Metric Century folks and take the Hutchinson River Greenway south (parts of which are in slight disrepair). After that it's a mix of mostly quiet urban streets and greenways including greenways through Pugsley Creek Park (🎥) and Soundview Park (🎥). The ride ends on Randalls Island (not Inwood).

 

Despite all the greenways, much of the ride through the Bronx is pretty "urban". It's safe,  and you're routed on the quietest streets possible, but if frequent "unclipping"bothers you, then we recommend  you use the Century route, and take MetroNorth back from Harrison (best option, 44 miles) or Rye (shorter option, 35 miles). Another option is to follow the Metric Century route and take the 6 train home after Throgs Neck (39 miles). There will still be a few stretches with a fair amount of unclipping, but just a few.

 

Miles: 39 (less w/ MetroNorth or subway return)

Feet Climbing: 1,699

 

Healthy Habits Route w/ GPX & cuesheet download options

 

Metric Century Riders ride the same route as Healthy Habits riders through New Rochelle. In Pelham Bay Park (🎥) they split off and go over to Orchard Beach (once considered "The Riviera Of The Bronx"). Then they head south to Throgs Neck (🎥) where they can explore the fascinating Fort Schuyler. (Make sure to bring ID – since it's a Coast Guard facility you might be asked for ID, but usually they just waive you through). Then they rejoin the Healthy Habits route on a mix of mostly quiet urban streets and greenways including the greenways in Pugsley Creek Park (🎥) and Soundview Park (🎥). And finally the ride ends on Randalls Island. 

 

All the caveats mentioned above about parts of the Bronx portion of the ride being "urban" are true for the Metric Century ride as well. If frequent "unclipping" bothers you, then we recommend you follow the Century route and take MetroNorth back from Harrison (44 miles). 

 

Miles: 48 (less w/ MetroNorth or subway return)

Feet Climbing: 1,866

 

Metric Century Route w/ GPX & cuesheet download options

 

Century Riders get to see a lot more of what makes Westchester County so special. A few of us tested this route this past summer and it lived up to its tagline "Yachts & Mansions". Some of the hightlights are the areas near Westchester Country Club (🎥), Dogwood Lane (🎥), Tide Mill Yacht Basin (🎥), the American Yacht Club – they're just stunning. If you grew up in the area you'll have a bit of nostalga as you ride past Playland. 

 

As with the Healthy Habits and Metric Century routes, there is a bit of "urban" riding as you come back into the City. We've opted to route via the quiet, industrial MacQuesten Parkway in Mount Vernon rather than somewhat prettier, but much busier Kimball Avenue in Yonkers. Once you hit the Bronx you'll take the Bronx River Greenway for a while to stay away from traffic. When greenways are no longer an option, you'll be on mostly quiet residential streets until right before you get back to Inwood. 

 

If you want to avoid all of the "urban" parts of the ride you can take MetroNorth back from Bronxville (57 miles total). To avoid most of the parts with frequent unclipping you can take the the 2 and 5 trains from the North Bronx (60 miles total). The ride ends in Inwood. If you were planning to take the subway back home the route right past the 4 train (mile 64), and isn't far from the D train (mile 63). 

 

Miles: 66 (less w/ MetroNorth return, e.g. 44 from Harrison)

Feet Climbing: 3,389

 

Century Route w/ GPX & cuesheet download options

 

No Hill Climber or Multi-Surface Versions…

 

Since there aren't many hills in the area, there is no hill climber version. And since bikes are prohibited from the one gravel trail in the area, there is no multi-surface version. The century route mostly goes on quiet residential streets, so Multi-Surface folks should like that route. And the Metric Century version is great if you want more of an urban adventure ride.
