Enjoy a day of care-free riding: choose 25, 50, 75 or 100 miles, plus a Hill Climb Time Trial or the Dirty Apple, our gravel/dirt road Metric Century. Every turn is clearly marked. The ride begins in Somers, NY, convenient to Metro North transit. Mechanics will be available at the start and will be touring the route for your safety and support. We provide well-stocked rest stops along the way and at the finish you will be treated to a hearty lunch including sandwiches, salads, and homemade gelato, plus music, vendors and massage!
What people are saying about the Golden Apple:
“Amazed and impressed at the number of volunteers that did their jobs so well as a team.”
“Nice tree covered routes which were nice.”
“The picnic at the end is the reason I plan to come back again next year. It's well run and delicious.”
“I am a newbie, riding only 3 months and was nervous before the event. I needn't have worried; support, organization, food was great- all I had to do was pedal and pedal and pedal.... This was my first bike event; thanks for the positive experience. I will be doing more.”
“Quality vs. price excellent. I especially enjoyed the fact that there was still food, etc. when we came back from the 100-mile ride. Most events are usually already cleaning by the time I get back.”
“Been doing this ride for 10 years and WCC always does a good job.”
Welcome to the Westchester Cycle Club website! We've been riding together since 1975 and are a not-for-profit organization in Westchester County, New York. Our purpose is to educate the general public about safety and the benefits of bicycle riding, to promote community awareness and enjoyment of cycling through organized bicycling events, tours, lectures, demonstrations and other bicycling activities for members as well as for the general public, and to promote bicycle use, and development of cycling facilities as a non-polluting, non-congesting, quiet means of recreation and transportation. We have been designated the top bicycling club in the country in 2011 by the League of American Bicyclists.
We're open to everyone—not just Westchester residents, not just inveterate cyclists—and we'd love you to join us. A $20 annual membership provides you and your family with a variety of rides; beginner or expert, you'll find something just right. Our Orientation Ride will help you find just the right paced group for you. We offer lots of member-led rides throughout the entire county as well as Putnam and Duchess and Fairfied (Ct) counties. Rides are scheduled on weekends as well as many weekdays and evenings and wind their way through some of the Lower Hudson Valley's most scenic areas. We also schedule multi paced rides once a month with food, drink and camaraderie afterward. The highlight of the year is our renowned GOLDEN APPLE TOUR- a fully supported event with routes from 25 to 100 miles.
