CYCLING GROUP

ROCKLAND BICYCLING CLUB 

 

A not-for-profit, volunteer-based organization which hosts rides and social events throughout the year. Explore Suffern and Harriman routes with them!  Riders love the Suffern segment of their "Ride Around Rockland" series.

If you prefer the road less traveled, try their  "EZ20" in Harriman State Park which starts and ends at Lake Kanuwaukee and in between does it's best to show you the most park with the least hills.  

 

For the really adventurous and experienced cyclist, they re-brand EZ20 as "Moonlight Miles" and run it on cloudless full moon nights when the park is  devoid of people and cars.  Nothing but bikes slipping silently through the woods past curious watchful eyes in the bushes.

SHARING THE TRAIL

BECAUSE THE NEW TRAILS IN STERLING FOREST ARE MOSTLY SINGLE-TRACK, SHARED-USE TRAIL WITH SOME SHORT SECTIONS THAT ARE PARTICULARLY NARROW, PLEASE PRACTICE PROPER TRAIL ETIQUETTE. PAUSE AND ACKNOWLEDGE EACH OTHER'S PRESENCE.  ALL USERS YIELD TO HORSES, AND BIKES YIELD TO HORSES AND HIKERS. IF POSSIBLE, MOVE DOWN LOW OFF THE TRAIL BELOW HORSES RATHER THAN CLIMBING ABOVE THEM.
