The Westchester Trifecta 2019

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.
The plan:

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 …
