Rockland Lake & Nyack

54 miles

Saturday, August 1, 2020


In week three everyone heads to Rockland Lake. We start by going up Knickerbocker Road, then go through Old Tappan (which is very quaint πŸŽ₯), then we get on the Joseph B Clarke rail trail (πŸŽ₯) and take that up to Blauvelt. Then up through West Nyack and then to Congers where we'll grab lunch at Steve's Prime Meats and then go over to Rockland Lake to eat.

Β 

After lunch Metric Century RidersΒ  south on the Hudson River Geenway which has beautiful views of the Hudson River and the Cuomo Bridge. They then continue south after Nyack, through Piermont, past Market Diner, on a pretty standard 9W ride back to the City.

Β 

(This route includes 1.5 miles on pristine gravel which IS skinny tire friendlyΒ πŸŽ₯).

Β 

[Please note: this route is very similar to week 1's ride for Century Riders. Metric Century riders can also ride the Century route and return via NJ Transit from Emerson.]

Overall challenging but not intimidating. Enjoyed the greenway in Rockland State Park and the packed-gravel trail along the Hudson in Upper Nyack. I prefer the short steep hill from the path leading to N. Broadway over the larger hills on 9W from Rockland Park to Nyack.
Steve's Meats does not open until 10. But they were kind enough to open early at 9:30 for 9 hungry cyclists.
As usual a friendly and welcoming group of riders. And a strong helpful lead from Peter.
