SUMMER AWAY TRIP 2018 Montreal and Champlain Islands

By Bill O'Connell on 5/30/18
Westchester Cycle Club Summer Away Trip 2018

Many of you missed the wonderful Away Trip to Martha’s Vineyard last  weekend.
Ask anyone who attended, these trips are special riding experiences that are not to be missed.  For this year, you have ONE more chance!

This August 4 and 5, Saturday and Sunday, we will be revisiting Plattsburgh and the Champlain Islands of Vermont.
This is one of the most scenic rides in the Northeast.
The long version is 67 miles with only 1700 feet of climbing (SUMMER AWAY TRIP 2018 continues ...)

      Whip and Gag
      Anil Malhotra
      The group has been riding revised versions of the weekly WAG ride to avoid the construction on Round Hill Rd and Lower Cross/Lake but overall the ride begins with a predominantly uphill first half, with Sherwood, Whippoorwill, and Baldwin amongst others. Then, mostly downhill finish with multiple opportunities for pacelining and working as a team throughout. Ride often breaks up into groups with faster around 19 mph, middle group (usually includes leader and co-leader) around 18 mph, and, if we're lucky, a back group around 16-17 mph. Two regroups - in downtown Armonk after Whip descent and Bedford-Banksville Rd after Middle Patent descent. It’s a demanding yet enjoyable ride, with multiple and varied post-ride food and beverage activities often included. We will discuss the exact route at the start depending on road closure updates - for now this should suffice: Sign In

      Ye Old Discovery Ride Revisited
      Judith Gordon
      Don't be fooled by short distance. Ride has abundant hills but compensates with pretty scenery and includes a spin through Ward Pound Ridge Reservation. D+ pace is for real. It's NOT D+ elevation! Stronger riders can go ahead. Come prepared with hydration, bicycle in good working order, & snack. Fine pit stop in park but no food! Cue sheet says A&P but it's now Acme. Updated version of cue sheet is #1454. Call leader's cell if questions: 914 584 2080.

      Summer Solstice solace on Candlewood Lake.
      Stephen Kuncio
      As the days will now be starting to get shorter we can celebrate the Summer Solstice holiday and take some solace in this great route up and around Candlewood Lake then back down via Bethel. Outlook is for a perfect midsummer's day for one of the best rides of the year. A slight deviation from the classic route at mile 36.3 in Sherman taking a left up Rte 39 for 1/10th of a mile to the Sherman IGA for a gel and water stop. We still pass through New Milford at mile 42 and have the main food stop in Bethel at mile 58.9. Then on through Ridgefield. Mostly rolling terrain with one nice climb up Aunt Hack Road around mile 20. Sign In

      And now for something completely different…
      Gregory Sims
      Well maybe not so different, just wanted to see how many Monty Python fans we have out there;<) This route does have some new roads at least for us (B and me). The shortest length of gravel (somewhat loose) possible at the beginning of Mianus followed by a slightly longer length of hard pack. Always nice to test and improve our bike handling skills.

      This should be a good weekday workout but also nice to take in the local “back” roads. The distance is almost 33 miles so we need to have a prompt 5:30 start. The elevation is moderate but has a few short steep climbs, 1) Farm, 2) Burying Hill and 3) John, savor them! And the ending has a little surprise. You’ll know it when you see it! Regrouping as necessary with a middle B+ pace.

      Scotts Corners to Rowayton
      Stephen Klepner
      Route courtesy of Steve Fleischner. Parking at the Trinity Market adjacent to the pond at far edge of the lot. Elevation gain of only 1495ft. Sign In Expected pace is 11.5mph. Frequent regroups. Break at
      the Market in Rowayton where hopefully we can get a table overlooking the water.
      I will bring a few cue sheets. Please print out your own to be sure.
      Bridge on Jeliff is closed. Detour required which adds 1.4miles and 105ft elevation gain and one steep hill

      Greylock Century in reverse with Whitcomb Hill
      Gregory Sims
      Interested in doing a century ride? Interested in doing a Century Ride with 100’/mile of climbing? Interested in doing a Century Ride with 100’/mile of climbing in the Berkshires? You’ve come to the right place. Brigitte, Andy K. and I need to do something like this in preparation for the Triple Bypass in Colorado in July (120miles, 10,000ft of vertical). The route will be almost the same as the annual Greylock Century but following it in the reverse direction.

      Here is the ridewithGPS link with special thanks to Michael Allen for course design: Sign In.

      This means the more difficult climb of the north side of Greylock coming near the end of the day. The elevation gain will be close to 10,000ft. for the 100 mile course. Another challenging aspect of this ride will be the climb of Whitcomb Hill Rd starting at mile 65.

      The start point will be Jiminy Peak Mountain Resort parking area- here is the Sign In.

      Working on nailing down the rest stops. Feel free to email me with any questions: Sign In or text/call 718.938.6247

      Are you new to Westchester Cycle Club or considering joining? This ride is for you. Each month from April through October, we will provide an introduction to safe riding and expected practices on WCC group rides, then break into groups by level of speed and experience. You can expect to learn how WCC rides work and which level ride you might choose for your first regular club ride. Anyone who can ride a few miles on their bike is welcome--we'll break up into groups at different distances, so you do not necessarily have to ride 15 miles. Please come with a bicycle in reasonably good repair, a helmet (required), a water bottle, and comfortable clothes for riding. Please arrive at least 15 minutes early to gear up and sign in. We will meet in lot "West 1" on the Purchase College campus. Look for the cluster of cars with bicycles. There is a fee to park in this lot, and the club will cover this fee for riders and leaders. Please do NOT pay the parking fee as you enter the lot; get a parking pass upon arrival from Brian. If you have not yet joined the club, you are entitled to one free ride, and this would be a good one to choose! Ride Leaders, I welcome your assistance at this ride, which will qualify you for Assistant Leader points. Please let me know if you'll be able to join. Leader's cell: 516-406-8838.

      See the City
      Victor Ruiz
      Hello everyone we will be riding from the Katonah commuter lot to Little Italy. We will have lunch al fresco and return on the metro north.
      This is an all level ride, that will take all day to do. We will ride down the bike path to Van Cortland park. from there we hit the streets to Dykman St and hop on the Green Way to Battery park. Up to little Italy for lunch. Then to Grand Central to take the train home.
      Speed is not a factor and we will stay together. Please be able to ride 56 miles. Breaks as we need them. It is a fun ride at a leisurely pace.
