STS6 – "Metric Century Plus" – Chappaqua or Hills - Recap

Saturday, August 22, 2020 - Recap

Briarcliff house

Ride has concluded.

Briarcliff Manor, Cuomo Bridge, State Line Lookout

65 or 70 miles

Saturday, August 22, 2020


UPDATE 1: The location of the picnic has been changed from Tallman Mountain State Park to the Fort Lee Historic Park just south of the George Washington Bridge.

 

UPDATE 2: There is no Century-level ride this week, but there are two options above the Metric Century level ride. Both start at the same time and place as the Metric Century group, so if you so choose, you can ride with them the first 25 miles up to Briarcliff Manor before the routes diverge.

 

Option 1 – "Metric Century Plus"

 

Miles: 69

Feet Climbing: 3,800

 

This option requires you use the Metric Century route up to Briarcliff Manor, then change to "The Chappaqua Add-On" route, and then back to the Metric Century route at the end of the 10 mile add-on route.

Option 2 – The original Hill Climber route

 

Miles: 63

Feet Climbing: 3,850

(Please note: while the total feet climbed is about the same on the two routes, the hills tend to be steeper and more difficult on the hill climber route.)

 

This ride is generally more relaxed than the other rides, with more spots to stop and take in the scenery. Summer Training for 2020 wouldn't be complete without a ride over the new Cuomo Bridge (🎥), so that's one of places where you'll want to stop and take in the view.

 

The group starts up in Inwood t the same time/place as the Metric Century group, and then goes through Riverdale. Hill Climbers diverge a little from the main group in Riverdale to climb some hills, but then everyone gets on the South County Trail, which becomes the North County Trail as you pass Tarrytown. When you get to Briarcliff the routes diverge. 

 

Hill Climbers ride down to the river at Scarborough and then climb back up the hill and then head to Tarrytown to cross the bridge.

 

Metric Century Plus riders change to the add-on route in Briarcliff Manor and ride through Chappaqua and some nice parts of Ossining before rejoining the main Metric Centry route. 

 

(Hill Climbers can also add the Chappaqua add-on to their route if they want to ride a longer distance.)

 

Once over the Cuomo Bridge the group heads to Piermont, and then down 9W, past Market Diner, to Lamont Campus to do the (unavoidable) hill climb. Immediately after Lamont they'll head to State Line Lookout. After exiting at the south end onto 9W everyone rides River Road to the picnic at Fort Lee Historic Park just south of the G.W. Bridge.
