Mount Tremper, 5191 NY-28, Mt Tremper, NY 12457, USA
Like many others, we took solace in cycling a ton during the lockdown in 2020. After constant discussion on way too many local rides, we decided to branch out internationally as the travel restrictions eased. Our love for adventure brought us to the Lombardy region of Italy. Never ones to seek out mass tourism, and always on a lookout for interesting and unique experiences, we found Andrea and ‘One More Ride’. Andrea guided us on an incredible cycling trip through the breathtaking scenery of the lakes region, combining Italian cycling culture and exquisite route planning with culinary delights and local customs (no cappuccinos after 11am). After a follow up tour with Andrea in the Provence region of France, now we want to bring their Italian experience closer to home and share it with other like minded recreational cyclists. What happens when you combine Italian and NY cycling cultures? Come enjoy some Fresh Pasta and your choice of local IPA and/or Nebbiolo @ The Leeway on the Esopus River after a long ride and find out!

At this point you will also pass through Phoenicia and Woodstock town before exploring the Zena Highwoods area and returning by way of Glasco Turnpike.
Slide Mountain Wilderness Ride
This ride is a reminder that there is big, remote, country to be found just a few hours from New York City. Skirting the edge of the vast Slide Mountain Wilderness this route offers challenging but well spaced climbs and exhilarating descending, following quiet roads along a course defined by wild rivers as they slice through the Catskills. You'll feel far from civilization as you drop into Frost Valley, and happy to be back as you reconnect with Route 28 just south of the Leeway.
Elevation Spread: 2500ft-5000ft
Hunter Windham Ride ending at Westkill Brewing
This ride takes you deep into the hills, but you won't have to dig too deep to get there.
