Gimbel Ride in Westchester NY?(2 posts)

Gimbel Ride in Westchester NY?5ive
Jun 28, 2001 4:25 PM
Anyone here ridden this training ride that starts from Yonkers, NY on Saturdays and Sundays? Could you please post the route of this ride? I know it runs all the way up the Central Ave. to the Westchester Community Center in White Plains, but I'm not sure where it leads to after that point nor where it eventually ends. I also hear that it splits into 2 groups (begginers/advanced) at some point during the course. Thanx in advance,
ps: my apologies if this is not the appropriate forum for this type of questions.

I do this ride often, Let me bring you up to speed on this ride first of all its very fast! Yes there are two groups but they split for one reason only "distance and climbs" the long ride (about 65 miles) adds about 6 roller type climbs and two good long climbs, lots of attacks this is a training race for the most part. On some rides I have seen up to 150 riders. The short ride (about 55 miles)is just as sprited but cuts out most of the climbs, still fast, just to fill you in on a couple of things. They blow stop signs and red lights often, in some cases the police have escorted them through towns. This ride has lasted for years and goes every weekend and holiday. And goes year round. Its fun and something you must do once. I pick it up in North White Plains at the exzotic car store (Rt 22 North)be there at 10:00 AM sharp they come through between 10 and 10:15 ? It ends up some were in Rye, I turn back in Port Chester. The ride goes up 22 North then through some back roads in Greenwich Ct. then by Westchester Air Port. Have fun and watch yourself.
