FEATURED BIKE TRIP:

From New York City and back, using the Metro-North train.

A trip that’s a loop — one where you’re not retracing your steps — is especially gratifying.  Here’s a suggested route that uses the Metro-North train line, from Grand Central Terminal in New York to Brewster, New York, to get you to the bike path.  From Brewster, you’ll pedal (miles) along the Old Putnam and North County bike trails right back to Tarrytown, and the train ride home.  Perfect for a cool fall day!

FEATURED TRAIL TRIP #2: A Trail of Two Cities

Walk it or bike it along the Old Croton Aqueduct from Tarrytown to Irvington (our adjactent Hudson River town), then hop the Metro-North train back to Tarrytown for dinner and a local beer.

A Couple Reminders for Successful Bike Trips

Have a spare inner tube in your pack when you ride, and make sure you have a bike pump.  If you have a puncture on the trail, you may be miles from a place where you can get a ride back to your car.  But, while you’re at it, make sure you have UBER loaded on your smart phone — a ride can save you hours of walking if you get a flat that you can’t repair.

Both Google Maps and OpenStreetMaps are apps for your smartphone that will show the bike trails, as well as most hiking trails, in the area.  And they’ll show you exactly where you are on the trails, so you know when you’ve gone far enough!  Both apps are free.
