A while back I hijacked another posting, sorry my bad, but he did ask for rides we recommend. So, for our use here I have listed all the rides that I even know about below that are less than 75 miles from NYC and aprox dates. Feel free to post any you know about, but lets keep this list just for rides within 75+-miles from NYC.

I want to include further out rides because I know there are awesme ones further out but Its not convenient for me to drive 100 miles to PA for a ride. Maybe we can have another list for central NJ rides because I know there are some great ones there too.

I would throw in the Bucks Cnty Covered Bridge ride, it is just across the Delaware from Frenchtown, not a bad drive. The other PA ride in October is the Bicycling Magazine Fall Classic which leaves from the Velodrome. A little bit farther west but the velodrome is a unique destination that we are lucky to have in our back yard.
Kermesse Sports rides: Hell of Hunterdon, Fleche Ballon, Bastille Day ride, Fools Classic, etc, they are a good promoter and have a nice collection of rides now. All challenging, some with dirt roads/gravel and some climbing fests. Martys has some shop rides (open to anyone who registers) that are interesting; a gravel classic, Chili ride, and a Turkey ride. Hilltop is doing a terrific job promoting Women's rides with some ladies only events. Rapha NYC also has Women's only rides that are big along with other events.

good add

Bee: These sound interesting and I haven't heard of most of them so I suspect they are further out from nyc . Maybe these could/should be placed on another list. would it be fair to say these would be good on a Central NJ list or just "NJ"? Since I am unfamilar with these can you just give us a state next to each one?

I have been on the Fall classic ride and really liked it. Good mention!

Thanks for the input:)

Great Research

Good job Bee. (See how time consuming it was to gather all that info?). I tried to incorporate these to the master list and added some really snazzy high tech SGI graphics to highlight rides and areas, what da think? :D.

I looked at few you listed :thumbsup: and they looked great. A bit of a trip for me from the Bronx, but not for others in NJ.

The "Tour de Farm" rides look delicious and I plan on trying Marty's ride in Morristown when I can.

Thanks again and great add!:)

Who else, what do ya got?

You've been nursing your foot a year? That's why I asked about ligaments. I broke my heel in fall about 15 years ago. Unfortunately, if you land hard enough to break a bone you're often going to damage soft tissue.

The bone healed (no pun) OK but I had pain for years after and will eventually get arthritis. Meanwhile, I ride on.

Good luck.

Registration is open for 2017 Miles For Matheney. Sunday, June 4th. The Hills of Attrition ride covers some of the nicest roads in Northern Hunterdon & Somerset counties. And in an age of $100 PLUS fondos and other high price events, you can't beat $25 which includes a free t-shirt. And all for a good cause. https://events.matheny.org/

Some things I just realized.

I never thanked the Op for this compilation: "Big Thanks!"
The biggest event in the US(over 32,000 riders) is not listed:
Five Boro Bike Tour. Have volunteered a few times; will be
there again this year. Always a lot of fun. :)
