A good launch point for the tour is the Wassaic train station which is located at the southern end of a beautiful bike path. It provides easy train access from NYC if you do not want to drive to the tour, or there is free weekend parking if you are driving. No matter how you arrive, you’ll have access to our support van to store everything you do not want to ride with, such as bags, equipment, etc. We will also provide you with snacks, energy bars and beverages to get you on your way.
Start your ride on a car-free rail-trail that takes you through the fertile farms and historic towns of the Harlem Valley, one of the smaller valleys that feeds into the Hudson River. Depending on the length of the ride you choose and where you would like to stay, you will need to ride on quiet rural roads in addition to this trail. No matter the exact route, you will ride though many beautiful landscapes. There are also opportunities to stop at a number of historic sites, farmstands and swimming holes. You can also do a short hike to a fantastic waterfall.
