      Whip and Gag
      Anil Malhotra
      This is the traditional WAG ride that involves a fair bit of climbing (Sherwood, Whippoorwill, Baldwin) and some fast descents including down Round Hill near the end. Pace has been climbing through the season with range from 16-19 mpg but this always depends on who shows up. There are two regroups; after descending Whip and after Middle Patent, so faster and slower riders welcome. Post-ride festivities have focused on pizza and beer, but warmer weather may bring out the nuggets and sake. No headphones, helmets a must.... Sign In

      New Member Orientation Ride
      Lisa Baker
      Are you new to Westchester Cycle Club or considering joining? This ride is for you. 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. 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. RAIN DATE IS JULY 2.

      Harriman
      Brian Juszcyk
      Some will likely remember my absolute lust for Harriman from last year. I love riding here. Few cars, mostly good pavement, great views, and lots of hills. No cue sheet, as I'm just planning some spontaneous circuits through the various roads, somewhere on the order of 45-50 miles. We'll regroup enough to avoid getting lost/separated, but it's generally pretty hard to get lost once you know the roads. C pace (12-13 mph likely), but C+ level hills, so I'm calling it a C+, but given the relentless hills, it's going to be much slower overall than a typical C+.

      There are rest stops and vending machines in the park, but plan to bring most of what you'll need for hydration and food. It's also roughly a 45 minute drive from most places in Westchester and a 6am start, so that we can get a lot of time in before it gets too hot and I can still make personal commitments later in the day.

      Please make sure you google the starting location so you arrive on time. It might be slightly darkish when we first roll, but will lighten up quickly and is fine from a visibility perspective. If you have questions, feel free to email me, as this is a bit of an atypical and less structured ride than we normally do.

      I will be in NY at my summer home for a few days and want to ride. Leader is out of shape from riding flat rides in South Carolina, so pace may be slow and no one will be left behind. Exact route and distance to be determined. Come explore the beautiful farmlands of Dutchess County.

      Robert Hermann
      Please note the start location is Rye Neck High School at 300 Hornidge Rd, Mamaroneck (not Rye High School), just off the Post Road south of the Jay Heritage Center. The route is a new version (cue sheet 1492, coincidentally) of a route we did in years past from Rye HS. Sign In Moderate gain, with most climbing in middle. Pace likely in low-mid 15's, but heat adjusted as needed. We may vote to make a stop at a historic Revolutionary era spot in Mt. Kisco. We'll tour a bit of Rye at the end. When you sign up for this ride, you may want to go to the Events tab to sign up for a luscious lunch after the ride (beginning at 1:00 PM). It will take place at the Jay Heritage Center. There is not enough parking to start all rides there, but you can drive or ride the short distance there for lunch after the ride (or even stop at Jay before finishing the route at the HS, if you have mountain cleats or road cleat covers).

      Ride to the Farm

      ** MOVED TO SUNDAY JULY 30 **
      Join me on a beautiful ride from Yorktown to Fishkill Farms and back.

      Check out the route: Sign In
      Awesome right? Challenging but not too crazy.

      Check out the farm: Sign In
      Rad! And did you see they have farm-made hard cider to taste? Yes please!

      NO DROP; expected 13-14mph avg. Plan to ride for 4-4.5 hours but be out for closer to 5.5-6 hours.

      Additional Info to consider:
      first rest option is about mile 15 but we'll probably bypass it as ...
      longer lunch stop at the farm at Mile 22 - BYOL or buy from their grill (line sometimes is long)
      Farm Store will have produce and other goodies for sale to supplement your lunch!
      next rest option at mile 31 (slightly off-route) and mile 42 (Carmel)

      You will need a bike, helmet, tools & tube, plenty of water and snacks, a sense of adventure and positivity, and your climbing legs. Electrolytes are bonk-busters - keep some handy for this ride. It's July and probably hot.

      Email me any questions, suggestions, and congratulations. :)

      **ride still in planning stages; trying to get my kid to SAG for us to carry lunches and farm-fresh goodies back**

      Martha's Vineyard Single Sign in
      Bill O'Connell
      THis is a ONE Place sign in - BUT the weekend goes from Thursday to Sunday. When you sign in, please send Leader and email with the Following.
      1) Which days you plan to attend.
      2) Where you plan to stay.
      3) Whether you HAVE a room - and where - or whether you need a room, a share etc.

      As of this posting - most of our initially reserved rooms are sold out.
      There are hundreds more, both on the VIneyard and on the Cape.
      If you stay on Cape - you need to be on the Vineyard by 9am for the ride each day.
      There are ferries that will get you there on time.
      You also need to let the ride leader know, so that we can wait for you, or sweep by to pick you up. (riding of course).
      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.
      Saturday 55 Miles to Lighthouse at Aquinnah - C/D riders can lock bikes in West Tisbury and take Bus out and back to Lighthouse (hilly part of island) Much of ride is on Paths and FLAT. Past West Tisbury you are on road and hilly. Bonus for doing the Lighthouse by bike is the Bicycle Ferry (Sat/Sun only - VERY COOL)
