      It's World Humanitarian Day
      Robert Hermann
      So be nice to me. There will be warmth (hey, it's August), so let's start early, look for shade and keep moving. This route has several long, canopied straights, with one open stretch on 100S. It's a relatively flat-ish, generally quick-ish route, so we won't need to crank too vigorously to do at least 15 mph. C+ folks welcome, as always. We leave from the school lot on Riversville, not the municipal lot. Safety talk at 8:25. Bring sunscreen, short pants and a smile. We will stop at Tazza in Katonah at midpoint.

      Three Lakes, etc.
      Steven Schwartz
      A well traveled route on some familiar roads skirting the reservoirs. We start early to beat the heat and have the bulk of the day ahead of us when we are done. We leave sharply at 8:30, so be ready to clip in at 8:25 for a short safety talk. I expect a pace of 14.5-15 mph with regrouping as needed. Our rest stop will be at Panera at mile 22.5 in Yorktown. I will bring some cue sheets. Use the following link: Sign In. My cell is 914-450-2503.

      Armonk to Greenwich and Bedford
      Barry Faust
      The forecast for Saturday has changed from “80% chance of thunderstorms” to “partly cloudy”, which sounds OK to me. We’ll begin in Armonk and ride some nice roads through Greenwich and Bedford with a break at Finch’s. There are a number of hills, but nothing terrible - 2200 feet of climbing (according to my Garmin) over the 39-mile route, which comes out to 56 feet/mile. My planned pace is between the high 12’s and low 13’s, and I’ll be re-grouping regularly to keep folks together. Riders that want to do go faster are welcome to ride ahead. Most of the roads are likely to be familiar to you, but this route is a little bit different than others I’ve seen. The RideWithGPS link is Sign In I’ll bring cue sheets. Please be at the Crittendon Middle School parking lot by 8:45AM to sign in and hear the safety talk in time to roll at 9:00AM.

      Join us on a beautiful August day for a ride on basic club roads newly configured. We will loop from S Salem through Waccabuc, climb up Hawley into North Salem, and then head through Somers, GB and break in Katonah at Tazza at the midpoint. We will then head into Bedford and climb up to the top of Peapond and head down it to 121 and then head to Ward Pound Ridge Park over to 124 and back to the start. Moderately hilly at 61/ft per mile of about 2,100 overall climbing. Avg C pace of low to mid 13s. So a couple of climbs, speed bumps and some fantastic long downhills. Here is a link to the ride.

      Mahopac Lakes and Trails
      Shelly Mozlin
      Let's head north and ride in Putnam. This ride takes advantage of the bike path for a chunk of miles, which will take us all the way to Carmel. We can stop at Millie's for a bit. Then we turn around and head back down the trailway before meandering back to the middle school. There is a longer version of this ride which circumnavigates Lake Mahopac on the way back for 29 miles, if anyone wants a longer ride (Ride leaders, feel free to post the longer ride so we can have more options!). Here are the links for the 22 miler: Sign In and the 29 miler: Sign In.
      Both are also available in the club RWGPS acct, look for Mahopac Lakes and Trails (shorter version) and Mahopac to Carmel Around the Lake (longer one).
      And the cue sheet is attached as well.
      Call me if you have any questions or concerns, 9144503035

      Third Gold Coast Classic Century
      Bjoern Stoecker
      Reaching its third installment, the Gold Coast Classic Century is already beset with fables and tales from years gone by, of wheelmen being lured to a watery grave by the seductive song of sirens, of riders finding their early doom on the unrelenting hills after filling their saddle bags with heavy pirate treasure, and even of brief glimpes of beach along the way.

      Stop 1: mile 38.4 - Christie's Country Market
      Stop 2: mile 68 - Redding Ridge Market & Deli
      Route: Sign In (same as last year)

      By tradition, light refreshments will be served at the conclusion of this adventure. Lastly, riders who have completed all three GCCCs are eligible for a special commemorative badge; please let me know if you want one.

      As we get close, I will share the events for each day, the ride options, and other activities for NON-Riders. As long as the weather cooperates, this weekend can be a real gem.
      The BIG ride is Saturday, so if you can only ride one day, that is the day to look at. Weather permitting of course.
      If Saturday is bad, we will move the big ride to another day.
      Thursday afternoon there will be a short ride.
      Friday another ride - and option if warm enough to Kayak.
