New Routes, New Roads, New Destinations
In 2018 we redesigned the Escape New York routes to take you to some of the most beautiful destinations in the region. While the biggest additions came on the longer 75 and 100 mile routes, riders experiences the amazing beauty on the shorter distances as well. For 2019 we are updating the routes to make the journey even better and more fun.
Choice of 25 to 100 Miles
Navigation files will be available soon.
Century Challenge, 100 Miles
Are you an experienced rider looking for a challenging ride? Climb nearly 6,000 feet while completing a full century through charming towns and beautiful countryside that takes you into and around New York’s beautiful Harriman State Park.
Dirty Spin, Metric Century on Dirt and Gravel
Are you more inclined to head off-road? For the gravel riders, the Dirty Spin is a 100-kilometer route that takes rolling back roads to get to Rockland County’s network of scenic unpaved multi-use trails.
Highlights include the wide dirt path under the trees through Tallman State Park, the Old Erie Path rail trail with beautiful views of the Hudson River below, and the Nyack Beach path, tracing the river’s edge below the cliffs of Hook Mountain. Three rest stops and several challenging climbs help make this a ride you’ll remember.
A gravel or cyclocross bike with at least 30mm-wide tires is strongly recommended for this ride. This is not a road bike route!
Rockland Roll, 75 Miles
Looking for a bit of a challenge? Gain over 4,000 feet of elevation as you wind your way uphill and down dale through 75 miles in scenic Rockland County.
Piermont Pleasures, 50 Miles
Do you prefer a “touring” approach to cycling? Enjoy the scenery on our half-century excursion to the historic village of Piermont on the Hudson.
Bergen Spin, 25 Miles
New to cycling? Is this your first time riding outside of the Hudson Greenway or Central Park? Expand your horizons as you amble through the leafy suburbs of Bergen County.
