New York City 200k - Next Up on the New Jersey Calendar
This is our final offering for the 2014 season and we are committed to making it the most fun of the year. Read the following description of this 200 kilometer brevet set for Sunday, October, 12th.
A scenic and challenging tour of Bergen and Rockland Counties in the
outskirts of New York City and northern New Jersey. Riders start at the New York side of the George
Washington Bridge, meander through the quiet suburban roads of Bergen
County and along the magnificent Hudson River in Rockland County New York,
before climbing from the river to the top of Bear Mountain. At which point stunning views of the Hudson Valley are enjoyed. Riders then tackle the roller
coaster crossing of Harriman State park to the turnaround point in
Monroe NY, before again confronting the hills of Harriman State Park on
the return. After a stop at the Orchards of Concklin in Pomona,
riders return via the gently rolling suburban roads of Rockland County
before the final climb up to Englewood Cliffs and the recrossing of the
George Washington Bridge.
The finish is at a beautiful overlook of
the river in Fort Tryon Park, thus granting the riders a final brief
flourish of riding in upper Manhattan.
