      WCC will join with the Bicycle Touring Club of North Jersey and the NY Cycle Club for a joint ride. Start/Finish is Ross Dock at water level just on the NJ side of the George Washington Bridge. This route is targeted at a B/B+ pace but riders at any pave level can do it. At Ross Dock, the group will divide into sections based on their anticipated pace. The only charge is $10 per car to park. It's BYO or buy lunch at local delis that ride leaders will suggest. No SAG, no road signs, no marshals. Arrive at least 15 minutes prior to start time. We expect various pace levels for each distance, such as this 70-miler, because leaders from other clubs will lead as well. Regardless which pace you're planning to ride for 70 miles, WCC members should sign up here. Tri-Club 70, Club RWGPS link: Sign In

      John Blye
      Hello WCC riders we are joining the NYCC and BTCNJ for a 40 mile spin on the western side of the river. Leader from the other clubs will actually lead since they are more knowledgeable of the road. We, as always will obey ALL traffic rules and regulations, call out ALL cars up-back-right-left, communicate our intention, passing on your left, slowing, stopping, and road hazards. Check your bike before leaving the house, make sure it has good tires, a lubricated chain and ALL other parts securely attached. Helmets, working blinkers, ID are a MUST, WCC jersey, cash or credit card not a bad idea. Carry 2 water bottles, there will be stops for hydration. Download and save the route on your phone, print a cue sheet if you need one. ARRIVE early 15-30 minutes to organize ride groups, there could be a lot of riders.

      Now for a little change in plans;
      I'm parking on the NY side and riding over the GW Bridge to Ross Dock. I am not staying for the lunch after. I will arrive at 8AM, planning to start as early as 8:30 and by 8:45, please be ready to RIDE SAFELY and with a smile.

      WCC will join with the Bicycle Touring Club of North Jersey and the NY Cycle Club for a joint ride. Start/Finish is Ross Dock at water level just on the NJ side of the George Washington Bridge. This route is for all pace groups from C+ to B+, depending on how far you want to go. At Ross Dock, the group will divide into sections based on their anticipated pace. Come explore some new roads, landscape, architecture and friends from the other side of the Hudson. Meet our fellow riders from NYCC and BTCNJ. The only charge is the $10 per car to park at a commercial lot. It's BYO or buy lunch at local delis that ride leaders will suggest. No SAG, no road signs, no marshals. Arrive at least 15 minutes prior to ride start. We expect various pace levels for each distance, such as this 60-miler, because leaders from other clubs will lead. Regardless of which pace you're planning to ride for 60 miles, WCC members should sign up here.

      Greenwich House Tour
      Stephen Fleischner
      Join us for #1 Greenwich House Tour on a beautiful fall day. I lead this ride in the summer and always planned on leading it again in the fall. This is a magnificent ride if you like to take in the fabulous residences of Greenwich. This ride is less than average hilly with 1700 feet of climbing or about 50/ft per mile. We will ride to the entrance to GPP and then turn back with a break at the Upper Crust bagel store in Old Greenwich. Because of the many turns on this ride we will expect a slower pace in the low 13s. So come out and join us on what will be a lovely warm fall day. I will bring the cue sheets. Here is the Club RWGPS link to the ride. Sign In

      Catch a greyhound
      Edward Pugliese
      I need to be back early to get ready for a wedding so no Three Club Ride for me. If any C/C+ riders would like to join, this is your chance to meet the greyhounds.
      I usually lead a "D is for Dogs" ride to meet the greyhounds. This will be a "C for Catch the Greyhounds" ride.
      Route: Sign In
      Unfortunately we have to ride along Route 6 for a short stretch to get to the Mohegan Lake PetSmart.
      Greyhounds are wonderful animals and not many people have had the chance to meet them. This a Meet & Greet for the rescue group I work with (Sign In)
      I expect to maintain a 13-13.5 mph pace. Expect frequent regroups. Nobody gets left behind.
      I may have my GoPro rolling. So please make sure to bring a smile.
      Rest stop will be at Panera's in the same shopping center.
      I will bring plenty of cue sheets.

      Laura Kelly
      Calling all women!! Let's shred (or learn to shred)!
      If you've been wanting to try mountain biking, sign up! I'm leading a women-specific mountain biking shop ride for Yorktown Cycles.

      We will be on the Yorktown trails, which are rated beginner-intermediate. What does this mean? There are rocks, roots, and logs ("trail features") and the trails are great for building skills! Ride (or try) trail features you feel comfortable with; walk over/around the ones you aren't.

      Super supportive, low pressure environment. I'm stoked when you're stoked.
      Need a bike? Yorktown Cycles is 7 minutes from the trailhead. Call them first (it's their shop ride)!
      We'll be out about 2 hours, ride time will be around an hour or so. Expect mileage total between 5-7 miles.

      You need:
      a knobby tire mountain bike (NO hybrids or city tires on a mountain-style bike)
      helmet
      hydration and snack (bottle or backpack, your choice)
      desire to try something new

      Rain, snow, or soggy trails cancels. Leader will be in touch if the ride is cancelled or rescheduled. Email until day of, then text is best.

      Ride to the Farm
      Laura Kelly
      Missed my ride to the farm last time? Join me for a mid-week pedal to Fishkill Farms - an ecologically responsible orchard and farm nestled in the hills of Hopewell Junction!

      NO SAG this time (my kids are in school) so bring a backpack or panniers if you want to bring home some goodies.
      PYO not recommended if you want to eat lunch (but available for $5!)
      Bring plenty of water and a snack. Rest stop at the farm (mile 22) and gas station (mile 40).

      Here's where we are going: Sign In

      About the route: Beautiful but challenging! The first and last third of the route are fairly tame; the middle third crosses over the mountain to the farm, then back up and over the mountain to get back. We will regroup at intersections, major turns, and tops of hills. 10 miles on the bike path on the way back (Carmel to Granite Springs) to sooth the legs and ease the mind.

      Expected pace: +/-13.5 mph average
      We ride as fast as the slowest rider. Not a hammerfest. Come for the adventure and conversation!
      1 hour for lunch (BYO or buy from the grill; supplemental items available from the farm store)
      All Day Social Epic - expect to be back by 3:30pm

      (Faster riders and those who don't care for the bike path are welcome to list their own ride with cue sheet #1498. Optional omission of the farm entirely at mile 20.1 - take the right instead of the left to stay on Shenandoah Rd, cross the highway, then right onto Townsend Rd. Trims 5 miles and the opportunity to rest between mountain climbs)

      Rain cancels. Leader will be in touch the day before if weather looks sketchy.

      We’ll take Manhattan!
      George Klein
      Take your bike on a Metro North train of your choice into Grand Central Terminal, meet at the main info booth at 11:00AM. Technically, you need a bike pass (get a pass for $5 at Window 27 in Grand Central Terminal, or at any staffed ticket office), but I’ve had one for years and never been asked for it! We will ride on 42 St to the west side pedestrian/bike path, ride down to the Village, then the East Village, where we’ll split up to eat. Then we’ll rejoin and ride to the Lower East Side and Chinatown, finally pedal back uptown to Grand Central Terminal. Manhattan can be dicey, so you need to be well lit not only from the rear, but from the front too, and you have to be hypervigilant against getting doored, oblivious pedestrians, potholes and other creative hazards. Bring a lock. Check this space 24 hours before the ride to see if it has been re-scheduled due to weather.

      Hello Thursday Peeps, this was Deb's ride the first time and we were treated to a Halloween Fantasy Land. Now we are invited back to see Santa's workshop.....If you missed this ride before you won't want to miss it this time....amazing!! The route was specially designed by Deb R on only new paved roads.....well except for Boone Rd which we will take again.

      This will be a "C" pace, faster riders are welcome to join but stay with the group as we leave Yorktown for Granite Springs. Break at Panera. This is a road ride so skinny tires are PERFECT, NO GRAVEL OR DIRT, NO DROPS

      Dress for success, check the weather beforehand, bring your helmet, working blinkers, ID, a friend if you like, and most of all your HOLIDAY SPIRIT!!!!!
