another New Yorker

Hi all,

Recently got the cycling bug after a friend coaxed me across the GWB for some longer rides. Planning to buy my first real road bike in the next few weeks (looking at CAAD8/10, Allez ballpark, but weíll see what fits/rides best). Iíve managed the hills in the Palisades section of River Road on my single-speed commuter a few times but am looking for a ride thatíll take me up Route 9 to Nyack and beyond.

Also an occasionally Brooklyn-to-midtown commuter and make it out to Rockaway Beach a few times a summer. I've lurked these boards for route advice from time to time. Looking forward to contributing and getting more out of the forum!

-Matt

those sound like fun and ambitious routes. I grew up just outside of NYC so I'd love to read trip reports and see pics
