More Info

This is an adventure ride, with stops for scenery, etc. The ride can be challenging the first few times, but the long glides down, and the very empty country roads make it well worth it. We often wrap up late, and follow up with a meal.

Ride starts on RT 29 by Golden Nugget in Titusville, heads up the tow path to Bulls Bridge, then up into the hills in Stockton on one or both sides of the river. Expect 30-40 miles. Lights required, best done on a hybrid to handle multiple surface conditions.

This ride continues year-round primarily on Thursday‘s at 5PM, with a rain day of Tuesday. Rain or severe mud on the towpath cancels. Call or Text Malcolm if you would like to be added to the message group at (516)650-0477.

This is an adventure ride, with stops for scenery, etc. The ride can be challenging the first few times, but the long glides down, and the very empty country roads make it well worth it. We often wrap up late, and follow up with a meal.

Ride starts on RT 29 by Golden Nugget in Titusville, heads up the tow path to Bulls Bridge, then up into the hills in Stockton on one or both sides of the river. Expect 30-40 miles. Lights required, best done on a hybrid to handle multiple surface conditions.

This ride continues year-round primarily on Thursday‘s at 5PM, with a rain day of Tuesday. Rain or severe mud on the towpath cancels. Call or Text Malcolm if you would like to be added to the message group at (516)650-0477.
