Ride has concluded.

Horse Farms & Hills

39-65 miles

Saturday, May 14, 2022

[This ride is being organized by GravelNY - an Strava-based gravel club that grew out of gravel rides here at Out Cycling. It has a mix of gay and straight riders. If you plan on going, in addition to RSVPing here, please also RSVP on the Strava event page - if you're on Strava - https://www.strava.com/clubs/513005/group_events/1134722]

 

In the third week we move to Westchester where we'll do more dirt roads (and of course more hills)…

 

There are three speed/distance groups:

 

THE LONG DISTANCE GROUP

  • 65 miles
  • 5,830 feet of climbing
  • Pace: 19-20mph (NYCC standards), 16-17 mph (“Strava speed” on relatively flat routes)
  • Led by Steve

 

THE MEDIUM DISTANCE GROUP

  • ~50 miles
  • ~4,600 feet climbing
  • Pace: 16-17 mph (NYCC standards), 13-14 mph (“Strava speed” on relatively flat routes)
  • Led by Kathy

 

THE SHORT DISTANCE GROUP

  • 39 miles
  • 3,680 feet climbing
  • Pace: ~14mph (NYCC standards), 11-12 mph (“Strava speed” on relatively flat routes)
  • Led by Jay
  • *** Starts 1 hour after the medium and long distance groups ***

 

This week we start in Katonah and ride some of Westchester County's best dirt roads. Compared to Cold Spring the week before there's more horse farms and open vistas.

 

The route is organized so the long distance group makes five "diversions" off the short route. The medium group will be using a combination of the long route and the short route - doing diversion #3 and most of diversion #5.

 

Because of the way the routes are structured we're hoping the groups will encounter each other during the course of the ride as a faster/longer distance group catches up to a slower/shorter distance group. It also means that if you're in the long or medium distance groups you can dial back the intensity by skipping one or more diversions.

 

A far more detailed ride description with pictures, etc. can be found here…

BASIC STUFF TO KNOW

 

The meeting location is the parking lot of the Katonah MetroNorth station. And it's very important to note that THE SHORT DISTANCE GROUP STARTS ONE HOUR AFTER THE LONG AND MEDIUM DISTANCE GROUPS.

 

Medium & Long Distance Groups

  • Train leaves Grand Central at 8:09, 125th at 8:19
  • Train arrives at Katonah at 9:20
  • Ride starts at 9:30

 

Short Distance Group

  • Train leaves Grand Central at 9:09, 125th at 9:19
  • Train arrives in Katonah at 10:21
  • Ride starts at 10:30

 

At the end of the ride we'll gather at Paulie's to socialize.

The short route:

[The medium distance group should download both routes and switch between them as needed during the ride.]

 

Important: DO NOT download the routes until a couple days before the ride since we may need to modify them if we learn of issues along the route.

 

And, as always, please review and agree to the GravelNY ride guidelines before coming on the ride - https://grny.org/guidelines
