Westchester Trifecta – June 16, 2018

Dirt Lovers,
Saturday, June 16 and the Westchester Trifecta is just around the corner. This year we’re changing things up a little by cropping out the gravel section between Cold Spring and Peekskill. It will still be a legit trifecta, meaning a long day with three trails and a bunch of crazy stuff in between. In total we’re looking at roughly 80 miles of gravel, pavement, dirt and single track.

Photos by Daniel & Cee

The summer solstice brings the longest day of the year and an unquenchable desire to squeeze in every pedal stroke possible. #ChasingThatSummerSun. For NYCMTB, that means the Westchester Trifecta. It’s a nearly 100 mile mountain bike ride where we hit three of our favorite NYC area trails (Blue Mountain, Graham Hills, and Sprain Ridge) and link them together with as much dirt and trail as we can find. If we’re lucky, we make it back to Manhattan while there is daylight. It’s unadulterated …

Westchester Trifecta

Dirt Lovers,
Saturday, June 18 is almost here. That means we are getting closer to the 2016 edition of the Westchester Trifecta. This is that one day a year (ok, one of the days) when we try to serve up a bigger challenge than the usual weekend warrior stuff. It goes something like this:
We’ll take the first train from Grand Central to Cold Spring and ride our bikes back to the city, but not the shortest or easiest way, that would be lame- we will hit up a good portion of the single track at Blue …
