Mario Cuomo Bridge - Spring Training Series, Weekday Edition

 

What didn't sink into the river was floated away. Good riddance! The Tappan Zee Bridge (R.I.P.) has been replaced by the Mario Cuomo Bridge with its elegant cable-stayed design and best of all the bike/ped path connecting Westchester and Rockland Counties. 

 

Meet at 242nd St & Broadway just inside Van Cortlandt Park 1 block south of the rest rooms. Our ride takes the Putnam, South County, and North County Trails then veers west past Tarrytown Lakes into Tarrytown where we will have lunch (bring or buy) in view of the bridge. Then it's up and over followed by about 5 miles of unpaved (but very rideable) trail. 

 

Navigation: GPS map, cue sheet

 

You should be comfortable riding in a group. Usual 5BBC guidelines apply: stay between the leader and the sweep, keep single file, and call out stopping and hazards. Helmets are required on all 5BBC rides and you should carry a spare tube and water.
