From there, we will ride down the Old Erie dirt path back past the old Piermont RR Station, then back to the bike shop. Though most trails are crushed stone, dirt or gravel, parts of Hudson River Path are tricky enough terrain to the point where you will need a mountain bike. If you have a hybrid, be prepared to walk some sections or turn around earlier. Otherwise rolling with some short hilly sections and one challenging climb out of Nyack Beach SP. Option to add 4 miles at end for those so inclined - pun intended! Helmet and liquid replenishment required.

  • Must RSVP: MOUNTAIN BIKE ONLY - To Haverstraw via Hudson River Path
Level: C/MTB-C - Terrain: ROLLING to MODERATELY HILLY - There will be both roads and trails on this ride as we ride out of Piermont up to Nyack Beach State Park, then ride along the Scenic Hudson River Path up to the end of the trail in Haverstraw. If we are lucky, we may time this ride to the ripening of wild raspberries along the trail! Leisurely lunch stop at True Food in Nyack at mile 19 on the way back. From there, we will ride down the Old Erie dirt path back past the old Piermont RR Station, then back to the bike shop. Though most trails are crushed stone, dirt or gravel, parts of Hudson River Path are tricky enough terrain to the point where you will need a mountain bike. If you have a hybrid, be prepared to walk some sections or turn around earlier. Otherwise rolling with some short hilly sections and one challenging climb out of Nyack Beach SP. Option to add 4 miles at end for those so inclined - pun intended! Helmet and liquid replenishment required. Rain or 40% or more chance of precip on Weather.com hour-by-hour forecast for Piermont, NY cancels. MUST CALL, TEXT OR EMAIL DAY BEFORE TO CONFIRM OR RIDE WILL NOT HAPPEN. Note: Ride will not go in rain or wet roads. Terrain: Moderately hilly 46-55
