Since it is the 10th anniversary we are planning 2 days of fun!
Everybody can do what they want and ride where they want and team up - if they want ….
For those that want to join suggested rides, here are the key points:
---- Friday ride is to the Woodstock site. Hoping the museum will be open by end July. Check before you go!
---- Saturday ride is a curvy adventure through the Catskills and stopping for lunch at Brooks BBQ, see separate dining info file.
All ride GPX files, Ride Information, Lunch Choices, BeaverDel Approach Info are in one common Dropbox Folder. Go there, download the files and read the info. Since there are some that really don't like to ride in the mud or dust or simply like to keep their bikes clean, we have prepared an all blacktop AND a combo dirt and blacktop route for each of the two days:
For those than can make it to come for a ride on Friday (July 31) we are planning a scenic ride to the Woodstock site (50th anniversary was 2019). The ride is about 170 miles round trip which leaves plenty time to visit the Woodstock museum and see the site
For Saturday (August 1) we are planning a traditional ride, in keeping with the original intent of introducing new riders to a few gravel roads and finding curvy roads to stitch them together.
Finally... NEVA is a gathering of individual riders at a campground. If those riders chose to go on group rides they are doing so at their own risk! NEVA does not have an official group ride!
All riders are responsible for their own safety and which routes to ride. Nobody shall ride beyond his or her comfort level if you follow others. If the pace is too fast or if there are other safety concerns do not continue following and always make sure you have a backup plan how to get back to camp.
The lead riders are not tour guides or riding instructors or have responsibility of any kind for anything other than themselves. Anybody following them does so for their own convenience and takes full responsibility for their own actions and nobody shall be liable to anybody following them.
We include a downloadable ICE Form (IN CASE OF EMERGENCY ( ICE ) CONTACT INFORMATION).
We strongly encourage that everybody carry the completed form in their jacket pocket! We hope it won’t be needed but better to be prepared!
