Fighting the Winter Blues in Larchmont - New Time! 10:45AM- Rescheduled from 4/13 - Frostbite Series

We’ll be fighting off the winter blues with a ride through Westchester. We will start at the Larchmont train station before meandering on mostly low traffic roads north to the Westchester Airport, where we can pretend we are going somewhere warmer. From the airport we will be looping back south past Purchase Community College. Near mile 24 we will find our usual pizza stop for a lunch stop. After lunch we will find our way back to Larchmont train station.

 

As this is an off-season ride expect the speed to be more around 10-12 mph, and consistent hills to keep everyone’s heart pumping. 

 

If you’re arriving via Metro North, there is a train departing Grand Central at 9:05am, arriving at 9:44 am. Please use the bathrooms on the train before arrival.

 

For those driving, please park near the Larchmont Train station and be ready to go when the train folks arrive. If we need to cancel due to weather we will push it to a later weekend.
