Any upstate NY riders on here?

Anyone know of any good group rides near Albany? Given possible variables (wind, hills, traffic), I average 14-15 MPH on a urban hybrid bike.

Check out Mohawk Hudson Cycling Club at http://www.mohawkhudsoncyclingclub.org/, they have all different levels of rides. I have been on a few, but most are near Albany. Not very convenient for me.


Also the Saratoga Cycling club has a few rides. I have never been on them but have passed them while riding.

What he said. Quite a few rides originating out of Delmar and/or Vorheesville. Rides that say 17-18 are generally faster. I'll do 18 and usually be dropped. The MHCC ride list will generally give you expected speed, terrain coverage planned and whether there will be regrouping stops.

I moved to Albany about 3 months ago. Because of the weather I've only been out a few times since the move and only around the city a little bit each time. Once I get my legs back a little I'll probably look to one of those group rides too.

I just joined MHCC. Wow, almost daily opportunities for group rides at all skill levels. I'm excited about this.
