    Default NYC/Westchester/Fairfield Hampsten Ride - Saturday, 9/27 11:15am

    Hampsten Owners' Ride:

    Saturday 9/27, 11:15am
    Fox Lane High School (Upper lot), Route 172, Bedford, NY
    ~45 miles through northern Westchester County

    Fox Lane High School is on route 172, right off 684 for anyone arriving by car and an easy 15 minute ride from Mt. Kisco train station for anyone arriving by train. The 9:47 train from GCT would have you to Mt. Kisco at 10:45 which should give enough time to fill bottles and ride to the high school before an 11:15 start. I can lead a 10:50 start from Mt. Kisco train station.

    I'd suggest the following 45 mile route, which provides a nice mix of Westchester roads, and which is rolling, but not too hilly. It also incorporates a few sections of smooth gravel roads, but nothing with a large aggregate mixture, so all fine on 23mm tires, and a couple of scenic spots you'll all recognize from D-CT's ride reports. 45 miles from Fox Hill - A bike ride in Town of Bedford, NY

    It'll be fun to see how many Hampstens we can get in one location, but all salonistas and friends are obviously welcome.

    sounds great.
    my strada bianca is still a few weeks from welding so i don't think i'll have to by then, but i'd like to join you guys.
    fortunately, i think i can muster up an alternative rig.

    Mine's a few year's away from welding.
    Can I come anyway?

    I promise to sit on the back and not say anything.

    what a great route. i sure wish i had a hampsten and could enjoy the fun

    and by "a hampsten", i guess i really mean free time and no kids and the opportunity to spin around the gorgeous countryside with all you internet weirdos i know and love! of course, if i had no kids, who would ask me when i get in from a ride "are you faster than darren?", to which i enthusiastically respond "YES!", and then we talk about santa claus. where were we again?

    oh yeah - have fun!

    Yeah, think I'm tentatively in. I might drag Lukasz along, too. We're going to actually end up riding more than 45, right?

    i'll ride with marc and chase if they do it and do the 50 miler.
    i can prepare a ride "extension" for you if you want, or you can figure it out. lots of good roads around there.
