Independence Ride/Meet n Greet

Join us for the rescheduled Independence Ride Reduex... we schedule an annual ride close to the Independence Day holiday to grab some BBQ. This one includes a ride around NY Putnam and Dutchess Counties that has a bit of local Revolutionary War history, stopping for a BBQ lunch during the ride. 

Sybil's Ride

The ride will follow the 42 mile route Sybil Ludington made on horseback during a rainy April 26, 1777 night to rally the militia and alert them to the British attack on Danbury, CT.  Read about Sybil and the ride we will take in this short Backroads Magazine article: 

We will meet-up (or "muster" as they would say during the Revolutionary) at the Kent Park & Ride - Exit 58 (Ludingtonville Rd) off I-84 in New York at 10:00 am, and departing around 10:30 am.  You can also meet us only for the meet & greet lunch (see below).
