2018 Micro-Tour 2: May 12-13 2018, Croton Point Park, NY (Book at Bottom of Page)
"if you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together" African Proverb
The 2018 Micro-Tour 02 will ride from 718 Cyclery on May 12th up through Westchester County to historic Croton Point Park. These 44 miles will mostly be traversed at a calm elevation on protected bike lanes (Hudson River Greenway, South County Trailway and North County Trailway). Campsites (#2 and #5) will have potable water, access to bathrooms, but no electricity. Ride leaves 8am sharp from Chambers Street and the Hudson River Greenway in Manhattan (or, you can make arrangements to meet group along the way). Ride back can be of the bike or train variety (heck, so can the ride up if you'd like!)
This trip is special to me as I grew up in Croton, and worked my High School summers at Croton Point Park as a lifeguard and garbageman, circa 1986/7 (Joe)
This trip is "Unsupported" (we are camping!), as riders will be responsible for their food and shelter. You will be among helpful friends, so don't fret! 718 Cyclery provides expert free advice on packing solutions you might be looking into. Also, we rent bags and gear at a discounted rate for Micro-Tourers (you can rent gear in "Booking:" link below).
