Greenwood Lake and Cedar Mountain
A familiar route to two great destinations, with a couple of tweaks to avoid Ramapo Mountain and shorten the ride. Lunch in Greenwood Lake and then prepare to be challenged with a 600+ foot climb up Cedar Mountain, starting ten miles before the final descent into Tuxedo to catch NJ Transit home. Total elevation gain ~4,300 according to RideWithGPS.
Please be prepared to maintain 16 MPH on the flats; hills are at your own pace, regroup at the top. There is only one bail option--Waldwick NJ Transit, 22 miles in---so please make a realistic assessment of your ability to do this ride.
Bring two spare tubes and air supply; water; and money for food (or a bag lunch) and for trainfare.
