Gravel ride at Minnewaska Saturday, June 15?
I'm wondering if anyone would be interested in joining me for a gravel ride at Minnewaska State Park on Saturday, June 15? The mountain laurel bloom should be in progress and just about at peak. In case you have never been to Minnewaska, it's west of New Paltz, NY, atop the Shawungunk ridge, just south of Mohonk Preserve.

There's some great scenery there in any season, but in June the bloom makes it really spectacular. There are miles of carriage roads that are easily rideable on a gravel, cyclocross, or mountain bike. I'm thinking meet mid-morning, share a day of riding in Minnewaska and possibly over into Mohonk, then stop in New Paltz for post ride food and drink.

Here's a gallery from a couple of years ago that gives you an idea of what it will likely look like. The whole forest floor is carpeted with blooms.

If you're interested, let me know. Of course it would be a casual pace, no-drop ride.

Bumpin' this up . . .
Any NY area riders interested? Looks like a 9am meet.
