Bear Mountain/Jones Point


If our luck is golden, so might be the leaves as we ride the four miles up from Bear Mtn. Lodge to the top of the mountain itself. Although famously daunting, the climb is completely doable with some determination and the view is spectacular. After the mountain, we will take the paved Jones Point Bike Path and, later, the unpaved Haverstraw River Trail to Nyack. In between, we'll get some lunch (in Haverstraw). From Nyack we'll ride over the Mario Cuomo Bridge to catch a train home from Tarrytown. The unpaved portion is doable on skinny tires, you just have to be careful. Start is by the big clock in Grand Central Terminal at 7:30am to catch the 7:50am train to Garrison.  

Bring the usual water, snacks, spare tube and method of inflation. Sense of adventure advised.
