      John Blye

      Miller Time
      Eric Torres
      Its time to live the high life....Anyone, like I, who is interested in finding their climbing legs, please join me on a trip to my favorite climb.  We'll keep it reasonable as even though its been mild, its still the offseason. Moderate and steady on the climbs, and we'll slow roll on occasion to keep together. Chance for a cup of coffee at mile 39.

      Ridgefield Ramble
      Stephen Kuncio
      One of TDog's  more subdued routes from years gone by - although it does have a story. Reasonable route with only one climb of length (Nod Hill) and a stretch in the middle (Silver Spring and West Lane).  A slight detour for a brief refueling stop at West Lane Pizza & Deli around mile 27. Lower B+ pace, B riders welcome, regrouping as needed. Sign In

      Coffee in Kisco
      Richard Gluck
      Let's take advantage of the unseasonably warm weather and get a ride in before the rain starts. This is front loaded with climbs: Hall, Park Lane and Whippoorwill. We'll ride the entire length of Riversville on the back end. I'll be aiming for a mid-B pace. We'll regroup periodically for the leader to catch up. Coffee stop is the Starbucks in Mt. Kisco. Gotta get my freebie before my stars expire.  Sign In

      The Ride for Mildred Dresselhaus
      Robert Hermann
      Sign In (cue sheet 1414) is our day's blueprint. The warm-up will be going up the Round Hill but then there's generally modest terrain. Our target pace will be 14 mph, but this is a Nobody Left Behind ride. We'll dine in Old Greenwich on bagels and CroNuts. I will bring cue sheets. You need to bring phone, pumped tires, spare tubes and good cheer. Safety talk is at 9:25 and roll out promptly at 9:30. If this is your first ride with the club or at this pace level, please email me on Friday. Oh, as to Prof. D, the Queen of Carbon, check her out Sign In

      Yorktown Trails
      Laura Kelly
      Beginners Welcome - no attitudes/no judgments ride. All genders welcome! The adage is true - it's warmer in the woods! Meet at Mercy College Yorktown parking lot and we'll head over to the Yorktown Trails (Woodlands Legacy Park, Granite Knolls). New this month - we may take a trip over to Sylvan Glen, linking all three parks almost completely off-road! Trail choices will be tailored to what everyone wants to do that day. Trail features include roots, rocks, and logs. Expect around an hour of actual riding, out for closer to 90min. You will need a mountain bike, helmet, fluids, snack, tools, spare tube, and a sense of humor. Printable trail Maps are available on the NY-NJ Trail Conference website!

      Greenwich Point, Presidential version
      Harvey Loeb
      The Ride to Greenwich Point is one of our classic winter rides.  This Ride has many familiar roads with lots of turns.  I do not expect my pace will exceed the low 13s.  The first half of the Ride will be faster than the second half.  Food break at about 22.0 miles.

      My special day, and what I'd like, is to get dirty and eat cake - Katonah Dirt #2
      John Blye
      This is my day, I've already had 66 of these and now a 67th!!!!  And what will I do on this day....get dirty, climb Millerton and eat cake, brownies, cookies, ice cream, and candy, all the things I shouldn't but as I said, THIS IS MY DAY.  I'm going to ride Sign In.  If start time is too early let me know, I'll adjust by an hour if need be.  This will be a 3 hour ride no drops, stopping at ALL lights, stop signs, calling out hazards, left side passes (never on downhills).  Not sure if we will stop in Bedford Village probably not since I'm looking forward to all the goodies waiting back at the cars.  I'll bring enough for 25 and eat it all if nobody joins me, but if you do make sure you bring your best wide tire bike, a helmet, dress appropriately (shirt and ties for men, LBD for women) working blinkers - that means USB blinkers need to be charged (Christine), ID, your phone, emergincy tire repair kit, hydration (I have mine that I forgot today) and the best party spirit you have.
