This is a blog for a group of outdoor-oriented NYC-area residents to post thoughts and pictures on the latest weekend mountain bike outings. As a group, we've discovered that we're lucky not only live in or near an amazing city, but also to have access to an amazing variety of natural scenery. Biking happens to be the way our group accesses our natural surroundings. Hope this inspires the reader to 'get out there'! - Carl Kulo (blog creator)

Cross-Putnam Off-Road Ride 2/21/09

It was a good route on a beautiful day, but the offroad sections and lots of Sunken Mine road required studs. There was lots of ice around. The downhill section on Nimham had a modicum of mud, but it was just the surface getting a little warm.

From Southeast MNRR Station, Hank, John, and Scott took combination of hardpack and county roads to Nichols Street to enter Ninham Mtn State Forest to ride single-tracks. Climbed the towerRichardsville, Dicktown, Sunk Mine, Indian Brook, to Cold Spring.

36 miles
4200' climbing
Probably 5 hours of cycling
