The song says "There ain't no cure for the summertime blues," but the Rockland Bicycling Club has a convenient remedy.
Every Monday and Thursday during the cycling season, the RBC hosts a Rockland Lake ride at 6p. Ride the dozen or so miles with the group or on your own at whatever pace your prefer. If you are new to group riding, this is a great way to meet club members and chill out at the end of the day on the relatively car free and carefree roads around Rockland Lake.
Meetup at Parking Lot #5. Pre-registration required at RocklandBicyclingClub.org. Not a member yet? Email [masked] for details and to sign the club's waiver before the ride.
On Saturday October 9, the Rockland Bicycling Club invites anyone who rides a bicycle in the tri-state area to Ride ‘Round Rockland and rediscover the childhood joy of being on two wheels while cycling through some of the most scenic parts of Rockland County.
There’s a route and a ride for all levels of cyclists. For the serious road warrior who wants to ride an imperial or metric century, there’s a 100 and 65 mile route. For recreational cyclists who prefer the road less traveled (and a route which is mostly car free), there’s an 18.5 ride around Rockland Lake State Park. There’s even a family friendly, 3.2 mile loop around Rockland Lake where younger (and future century riders?) can join in the fun.
Pre-registration ($25 for adults, $15 for kids under 18 and RBC members) is required at https://www.RocklandBicyclingClub.org/RRR. That’s also where you can find more details including route maps and start times.
The Rockland Bicycling Club hosts a post-ride lunch for registered riders and will give awards to the youngest participants, too. The event also includes SAG support and a rest stop at the Orchards of Concklin for the 40+ mile routes.
The 100, 65, and 40 mile routes take you on challenging, scenic and soaring courses across Rockland County. The shorter routes are within Rockland Lake State Park. The 18.5 mile course consists of five loops on Rockland Lake Road around the outside of the park. The shortest ride, intended for children under the age of 12 and their accompanying parent or guardian, is flat (no hills!) and is 3.2 miles on the multi-use path which circles Rockland Lake.
