Climb Bear Mountain Without Riding 60+ Miles

29 miles

Saturday, May 11, 2019


If you want to climb to the top of Bear Mountain, but aren't up for a 60+ mile ride, you can do the climb the same day as the Spring Training Series, but do it over a much shorter route. The only caveat is that you'll need to take trains both up and back…

 

We'll take the 9:14 NJ Transit train out of Penn Station to Sloatsburg, NY (arriving 10:12). We'll then ride Seven Lakes Drive to Bear Mountain, do the climb to the top of Bear Mountain, and then cross the river and take MetroNorth back from Garrison. 

 

Here's the route:

https://ridewithgps.com/routes/29505218 

 

[The ride is contingent on confirming that a group of bikes won't be a problem on NJ Transit.] 

 

The ride is in conjuntion with the GrNY club on Strava which will go their own way and do a bunch of gravel roads after crossing the bridge. Anyone who's interested in gravel riding is welcome to join them (32+ mm tires are needed for the gravel roads). 

 

The ride is marked "Steady Eddie" for now. If other speed groups want to join in, that's fine – just make sure someone of your speed is going along so you're not riding by yourself.
