Kinderkamack – Pascack Nyack Attack

Kinderkamack-Pascack Nyack Attack

by Ronn Seely

This ride begins at the New Jersey side of the George Washington Bridge
and ends at the Runcible Spoon cafĂ© in Nyack. (If you don’t know the way
back, you could reverse the route, take 9W all the way back from Nyack, or
consult another Nyack cue sheet on this website.) The name comes from two of
the major roads we follow. My goal was to find an alternative route to Nyack
for those who are tired of the usual routes (9W, 501/340, etc.). This ride
swings a little farther to the west in Bergen County and then approaches Nyack
on tiny back roads from the west. There are plenty of hills, of course, but no
real killers. Enjoy!
