Woodlawn / Bedford Hills / Tarrytown

 

Woodlawn / Bedford Hills /
Tarrytown

By Gary Lehrer

 

This ride is for folks who aren’t satisfied
with a ride to the Kensico Dam – it tours the whole reservoir.  If
you’ve wondered about the forests surrounding this beautiful Westchester
lake, here’s your chance for a hilly 53 mi. leading to hard-packed trails
and woodsy scenery.  The ride leaves from the last stop on the number four
train (Woodlawn), goes up to Bedford Hills, circumnavigates the reservoir, then
follows the North County Trail to Tarrytown, where riders can take Metro North
back (or not!).  If you opt for the Metro North option, don’t forget
to bring a bike pass.
