Default ride photo1

Ride has concluded.

Briarcliff Manor, Cuomo Bridge, State Line Lookout

61 miles (or 51, 66 ⛰, 70 miles)

Saturday, May 21, 2022

51 to 70 mile riders ride up the South County Trail and then continue on the North County Trail to Briarcliff Manor (where we had the picnic in years past). Then they take some lovely surface streets south to Tarrytown where they cross the bridge and then head through Piermont after which they do the hill climb in Columbia's Lamont campus, then they go to State Line Lookout, and finally down River Road to Fort Lee Historic Park for a picnic with the other groups.

 

Miles: 61

Feet Climbing: 2,577

Metric Century Route w/ GPX & cuesheet download options

 

Option 1 - Tarrytown shortcut

 

Miles: 51

Feet Climbing: 2,096

 

To shorten the ride by 10 miles, take the Tarrytown connector from the North County Trail to the Cuomo Bridge (🎥)  Then head through Piermont and down through Tallman Mountain State Park. After Tallman, do the hill climb in Columbia's Lamont campus, heading to  State Line Lookout, and finally down River Road to Fort Lee Historic Park for a picnic with the other groups.

Option 2 – "Metric Century Plus"

 

Miles: 70

Feet Climbing: 3,250

 

This option requires you use the Metric Century route up to Briarcliff Manor (link above), 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 3 – The original Hill Climber route

 

Miles: 66

Feet Climbing: 3,300

 

Hill Climber route w/ GPX & cuesheet download options

 

(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. The Cuomo Bridge (🎥) is definitly one of places where you'll want to stop and take in the view.

 

The ride starts at a park a few blocks from the GW Bridge, goes up the greenway to get to Riverdale. Hill Climbers diverge a little from the main group in Riverdale to climb some additional 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.
