STS5 – Healthy Habits Riders – Purchase - Recap

Saturday, August 15, 2020 - Recap

Bronx river trail

Ride has concluded.

Bronx River, Valhalla & Purchase

52 miles

Saturday, August 15, 2020


Like week two, we start in Inwood, head up the South County, then over to Bronxville. In Bronxville we head up the Bronx River Trail (πŸŽ₯) – or residential surface streets for folks who don't like curvy trails. Everyone will stop for lunch in Valhalla at the base of the Kensico Dam.

Β 

After lunch Healthy Habits riders head directly to Purchase.

The route after Purchase skirts the edges between a lot of well-known Westchester towns – Rye Brook, Scarsdale, White Plains and Eastchester (to name a few). It's mostly all quiet residential streets until you get to Mount Vernon.

Β 

In Mount Vernon (just after Bronxville) the ride is much more "urban".Β 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.Β 

Β 

If you want to avoid areas where you may need to unclip frequently, you can take MetroNorth back at Bronxville (which will take about 10 miles off the total mileages listed above), or the 2 or 5 trains from the North Bronx (which will take 7 miles off the mileages listed above). The ride ends in Inwood. If you planned on taking the subway home at the end, besides the 2 and 5 train the route also goes right past the 4 train and not far from the D train, and the A and 1 trains are available at the end of the route.

Β 

Miles: 52 (or 51 w/ minimal trails)

Feet Climbing: 2,768 (or 2,802 w/ minimal trails)

Please Note:Β There isΒ an alternate route through the BronxΒ which is better for people riding back to Queens, Brooklyn or the east side of Manhattan. The alternate route ends at Randall's Island instead of Inwood.
