Rides for those who like to go long, Westchester Edition

Spread the love

In a previous post, I detailed long rides that start and finish at the George Washington Bridge.  Here, I’ll detail the longer rides I have that start in NYC and go through Westchester.

If you like riding long, now is a good time to explore new roads, new routes, and find new favorites.

Some think summer is the time to explore.  I see the logic, but now, as the weather is getting colder, riding hard is trickier, and the cold air reduces the likelihood of taking the KoM on a Strava segement.  So, December is a great time to bundle up, fill your pockets with food, plug a new route into your head unit, and wander some place different.  Explore and experiment now, so you have new roads mastered by the time it starts warming up again, and you can once again focus on speed.

W01 Trailway Up, Water Down.

W02 Trailway North, Inland Home

If you want to ride up to Nyack, cross the Tappan Zee Bridge, see some Westchester, and recross the TZB to Nyack:

W03 Tarrytown Rockefeller Loop

If you want to ride up from NYC on the Jersey side of the Hudson, get to Nyack, cross the Tappan Zee to Tarrytown, then ride home:

W04 Tarrytown to the Upper West Side
