The 2014 Harlem Valley Rail Ride will start and finish at the Eddie Collins Field in Millerton, NY. Millerton was recently ranked as one of America's top 10 coolest small towns in Arthur Frommer's Budget Travel magazine.


Bus Option: Book a seat on one of our 55-passenger luxury buses. Your bike will accompany the bus in a truck to and from NYC to Eddie Collins Field, Millerton. This is a two and a half hour bus ride. Transportation for you and your bike is $55 round trip and must be made by July 15. This option is only available for those first 200 riders to sign up.


Routes: Choose from 25, 40, 50, 75 or 100 mile routes along beautiful, low-traffic country roads, each starting and ending at Eddie Collins Field in Millerton, New York. Within each route, there will be a 4 mile stretch of the car-free Harlem Valley Rail Trail.


Rest Stops: Every 14 miles you’ll find a cheerful oasis! Each rest stop will feature a wide selection of fresh country produce, energy bars and other nourishing snacks. Henceforth, the dictionary definitions of, nutritious, and delicious, will have to be amended, if not wholly rethought.

                                                           

SAG: Bike Repair, Medical: Marshals will follow the groups in cars and on bikes. If you need assistance, call the command center number on your cue sheet, and we will be there right away to help.


Route Markings: Routes are clearly marked with blue arrows, painted onto the road, and signs are posted at turns. Riders will receive cue sheets with directions at the start of the ride. We love to hear from our riders “Even though I had a cue sheet I didn’t need it because the route was so well marked!”


Festival: We conclude our ride at Eddie Collins Memorial Field in Millerton with a country festival! Expect local sweet corn, hot dogs, bratwurst, sausage & peppers, hamburgers, veggie burgers, grilled chicken, pasta, salad, and, for dessert, watermelon triangles.


Massage: Enjoy a CALM, Clinical & Therapeutic Massage!


Beer Garden: The American Legion are sponsoring a Beer Garden for the festival. Beers will cost a measly two dollars a pop, and all the proceeds will go to the Wounded Warriors Fund. A great cause, and a great excuse to drink beer in a garden.


Swimming: Bring your bathing suit and cool off in the pool after your ride. 


Bag check: In addition to a swimsuit, make sure to bring a change of clothes in a small bag. We will hold it while you ride.


Tee-Shirts! All riders receive a free t-shirt.
