I am dusting off an old favorite - a mashup of several segments from familiar Bergen County Rides. I have been only on a handful of rides since last spring and think that Sunday will be a good day to start getting back into the grove. The ride will be at a moderate, true C*, pace. There will be some climbs but, nothing too challenging. We will regroup at the top of each climb. The ride starts at the Duck Pond and wanders up to the top of Bergen County near Ramapo College. There will be a quick rest stop at Morano's in Ramsey and a requisite photo-op on the Ridegwood Crest. Hoping to see you.Terrain: Rolling 26-45

   Meander on the McDade.:   This is a trail ride on a gravel and somewhat hilly trail (not a technical "single-track"). MTBs only. We'll start riding through flat fields then into nifty rolling switchbacks then come some harder climbs (hard but not impossible). Rest stop at the end then... we'll return the same way. No one dropped (we'll wait for you if you give it "your all"). Bathrooms along the way and possible deli stop at Bushkill. Bring snacks, energy bars, fluids. Do not max out your tires for this gig (no more than half the rated max pressures- trust me). For more info call me: 908-442-5684.Terrain: Very hilly 76-100
