Beginner Mountain Biking at Blue Mountain, Peekskill, NY

Sat Sept 7, 11 a.m.


This outing is geared to beginner mountain bikers (of whom leader is one, having done it 2-3 times before), though riders of any level are welcome. Trip is limited to 8 participants.

We ride at Blue Mountain, in upper Westchester County, 60 minutes from NYC. Blue Mtn has a network of trails at all levels, for mtn bikes only – no street bikes or hybrids. Our rides will be procured in Mohegan Lake, next town over, where Danny’s Cycles rents bikes and helmets.

Leader can drive 4, as long as no one is bringing a bike. It would be very helpful if at least one other driver came along, to help with the short rider/bike shuttle that is needed.

 

Drivers can meet at Danny's Cycles in Mohegan Lake at 10:30, or Van Cortlandt Park in the Bronx, to caravan, at 9:30. Leader to meet his passengers at VC Park at 9:30. Biking starts at 11.

Inclement weather will postpone the trip. Contact leader with any questions.

    Matt and I will be meeting at the park. Not sure why he was moved to the wait list when he was one of the first people to sign up. Just noticed that now. See you there.

    Hi bikers,
    Here is our final meeting info for Saturday at Blue Mountain. We’re meeting at 10:30 a.m. at Danny’s Cycles, 1922 E Main St in Mohegan Lake, NY, about an hour north of the city. We’ll grab bikes and helmets and proceed from there to the trails, which are nearby. For those who don’t need to rent, meet us as close to 11 as possible at Blue Mtn.
    Drivers, we can caravan to Danny’s or just meet there. Anyone who needs a ride from NYC can meet me at Van Cortlandt Park, Broadway and 242nd St, at 9:30; I can take 3 others. Cars can meet up there as well to drive together.
    My # is[masked] if you need to be in touch. Weather is supposed to be good. Please update your RSVP if you change plans.

      Is there only one entrance at Blue Mountain to meet everyone? Or a parking lot on Welcher Ave at the park to meet up? I will be meeting directly at the park.

      September 6, 2013

    • Jim

      We'll meet in the lot that is further into the park, by the trail lodge and next to the start of the trails. It's at the end of Welcher.

      Thanks for the update. If anyone else needs to change his/her RSVP, please let me know and I'll be able to bump someone up from the wait-list.

      Meant to add that I'll send final meeting instructions on Thursday.

    Joe Joe, thanks. Jumps and rollers might be for next trip. But if you're there on the 7th by all means we can check out some trails together.

    • Joe J.

      okay, I understand :)

      August 21, 2013

  • Joe J.

    I ride Blue Mountain many times and know all the trails. I like to jump, do rollers, and ride for about 4-5 hours at a time. If a slot opens, I would be happy to show you guys around. It is like my backyard....sans the garden.
