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)

Mianus State Park before the snowstorm

Carl, Gerald and I were able to get in a couple of hours cycling Mianus State Park before the big snowstorm. Temperatures ranged all the way from 26 F to 29! The ground was frozen and a few patches of ice were about. Conditions were great. Not as well maintained as Huber and Hartshorn, rocks and roots offered challenges but no real dangers emerged under the blanket of fallen leaves.

Easy access from Stamford Metro North granted Gerald and me a warm-up as we met Carl in the parking lot of the Merribrook Lane access.

Dog walkers and runners far out-numbered cyclists.

This venue is a fine option for city dwellers who rely on public transit.

What a great resource this is.
