COVID-19 Updates

Updated Aug 18th, 2020 - The CDC has determined that masks with exhaust valves are largely ineffective; please don’t wear them on our rides, unless the valve can be closed.  

Updated Aug 6th, 2020 - At the board meeting tonight, it was decided to increase the size of the rides to 8 + 2 and 4 + 1, where there are 8 riders and 2 leaders, or 4 riders and 1 leader. The ride leaders have the discretion to have smaller groups.

7200' vertical gain. Map included on original cue sheet. Water stops not listed on this cue sheet are in carosel or in Bear Mtn Inn and Tiorati Circle.

Check Metro North for up to date train times.  This clever route includes great climbs on both sides of the Hudson. The hard pack section of Old Albany Post Road on this route is virtually unchanged since Washington marched his army on it. Look for original mile marker on the right.

Bull Mtn Pond/Proctoria/Lake Frederick Rd is closed so RWGPS route goes directly onto Rt 293 from Rt 6.
