    * BearBear

    Time: 08:00

    This is the scenic way to the Bear Mountain Bridge; we ride up the east side of the Hudson and make stops at a pastry shop in Tarrytown and a café in Peekskill, ride over the bridge, up the mountain and then hit a deli in Tomkins Cove and a patisserie in Nyack on the way home. There are (hilly!) back roads on the way up, and on the way back we use Bike Route 9, hugging the river as much as possible, to stay off busy 9W. It is a long day; we cover about 100 mi.; bring money and pocket food; there are bail-out options as far as Peekskill but after that basically not. Folks who don’t have all day for the bike, feel free to hang until Tarrytown, have a snack with us at the Pastry Chef and head home; you’ll clock about 35 mi. Patrick Guilfoyle and Bob Nelson are your sherpas; meet at Bob’s place, 207th and Seaman Ave., at 8 a.m., and do RSVP to fastnfab (at) gmail (dot) com, or 212-567-7160.

    * Tour d'Staten IslandTour d'Staten Island

    Time: 04:18

    What you need to know is that there are 50-mile and 35-mile routes and that you have to hit the Staten Island Ferry Terminal by 7:30 a.m. to make the start of the 50-miler and by 8:30 a.m. for the 35-miler. You do have to pay a registration fee; as always, it’s not huge but it does go up the longer you wait; go to http://biketours.transalt.org/statenisland for more details and to register. Both rides take you to see Freshkills Park, which until it was closed to the garbage haulers in 2008 was the world’s largest landfill, at 2,200 acres, and indeed was the largest structure ever built by humans. The park won’t be finished until 2036, but there is a three-mile bike path so we ride through the damn thing. The Tour is run by Transportation Alternatives, which has the good sense to start at the Flagship Brewery near the ferry, and we should get some decent rest stops. Your favorite bike geeks, Bob Nelson and Patrick Guilfoyle, are already registered for the 50-miler; holler at Bob with questions: fastnfab@gmail.com or 212-567-7160.
